Unable to read offline

I anticipated that if I download the paper at home, I should be able to then read it offline on the bus or train but stupidly, the app wants to reconnect online before allowing you to open the app. Extremely frustrating and disappointing. Why bother having the download feature at all. Please fix.
The Age and Sydney Morning Herald do not have this problem.

Extremely Impressed!

This update is an impressive step up in line with other highly rated magazine type layouts. (Flipboard, Currents & Zite). You only need to download and read what interests you and a 7pm edition wraps up the day nicely. What I really like is the ability to also read the paper in its standard format. The zoom in and read works well. Highly recommend.

Hate the App love your paper

I love to wake up in the morning and read your paper. Wish the app didn't freeze and refuse to down load all the time. Guys fix the bugs!
