Still a horrible app
This has to be one of the worst designed and built apps around. If you leave the app (to perhaps fact check something on the web) when you return to it the app must reload so you must wait. The settings imply that it keeps, several days worth of content on the iPad so why I need to wait is confusing. My Kindle app doesn't do that and you'd think these were close to being the same.
Then there is the continual dance the app takes me through to verify my credentials. It asks for my credentials more frequently than Apple and it still doesn't use Touch ID. I assume since it is good enough for banks, Apple and everyone else that it would be good enough for this app. Oh yeah the app periodically forgets that I entered my credentials. Not sure why but I get asked to enter them, the screen changes to the login screen and then it realizes it really didn't need the credentials and flips back to what I was reading.
Also there is the backend at the newspaper. I can't tell you how many times it has gone out and I've been unable to access the paper but I can tell you it happens way more than it should.
Obviously this is all because the DP couldn't really care about the experience. If we want it we must suffer through this app. What a shame.
Incredibly frustrating and inefficient app
I prefer to read the print replica edition and navigation is very difficult. Roughly have the gestures I use on my iPad result in leaving the print replica version for one of the digital displays that is so peppered with pop-ups and ads that focus on the article is challenging. Other digital versions do not allow the reader to understand which stories were deemed important enough to make the print version. The latest inconvenience are pop up notifications about recently posted stories that come up on my iPad and iPhone. Sadly, the app gives me no control over notifications so I don’t know how to turn them off. My one attempt to email for support was completely ignored. I would pay for the extra fee for home delivery except that the paper consistently is delivered after 8 am. Too late to read during the week. I want to receive local news and support local journalism so I continue to subscribe but this app and its predecessor are among the worst I have ever seen.
Well on it's wAy
Looking at the previous comments I knew it could be a difficult app but decided to wing it and see. The app is indeed flexible and has improved somewhat over the previous versions. The Denver Post has made changes per the customers and it is for the better. It does take a moment to load but only a matter of seconds. This keeps the app light on memory and it isn't there sucking up resources 24/8.
It is best to imagine that this is a bit like a paper. You get some stories for the day but not all the stories. If you read it regularly you will be informed. There is now a means for posting stories to social media. It is not all the social media but who needs thirty icons representing all social media. Interestingly some of the links to stories will side step you onto a browser where the whole internet is ready and waiting.
So long story short. This is a simple but well rounded, flexible app that also happens to be light weight.
