It’s not terrible when it works
When this app works, it provides a nice, convenient way to read the Post on my tablet. Unfortunately, it seems to fail about once a month, at which time I cannot log in. I have a couple of other things I’d like to see fixed before I raise my rating. 1) It is pretty easy to download issues for offline reading and I love that. But then how do I delete a downloaded issue after reading it? There’s no obvious method other than removing the app and all its data, then reinstalling the app? There’s no way that was the intended design spec. 2) when you attempt to contact app developer support from Apple’s App Store, the link is not valid! Please give this app the attention it deserves and fix these piddling easy things!
Worse to worst
Since upgrade, when I open the app it requires sign in which - eventually, after a lot of spinning/loading time - takes me to the new “customer” web page where I enter my credentials and then instead of going back to the app automatically, like before, I have to tap the “digital products” tab and select Replica. But it just opens the web version of the replica edition with all the clutter and obnoxious layout. I haven’t been able to actually use the replica edition APP since the upgrade. To the Vulture owners of the Denver Post: if you are intentionally trying to run the newspaper into the ground by driving online subscribers away, then kudos to you. I hate this digital experience now, and have already been SO disappointed by the changes at the Post since you took ownership. Since I already have a subscription to the New York Times (I’m a Denver native, so don’t think I’m a transplanted snob), why should I even continue subscribing to your paper when so much of the content is coming from the NYT? I’d appreciate a response but don’t expect one since this app has had about a 1 star rating forever.
Finally, a Functional App
This is my fourth review of the DP Replica app. The first three were all one star and written with the faint hope that they could do something - anything - to make it look like something a major newspaper would offer. I’d like to think that my reviews, along with countless others, moved the needle a little, because they’ve finally ditched the other app completely and started over, emulating the app that many of the Gannett papers use. Not the greatest, but certainly more functional and stable than what they had.
The only quibble have so far is that, even thought it automatically downloads the version for offline, it does not completely download. Where this is most noticeable is on the comics page. I learned this on a flight last week, when virtually none of the text accompanying the comics was legible, looking mostly fuzzy.
But otherwise, good on ya DP.
