Too Many Ads!

Too many adds for subscribers! I understand if if you are targeting those who don’t have a subscription, but subjecting your customers to all those ads are ridiculous.

Also, I believe the previous version was easier to navigate. Each section was defined and was much smoother. I now get frustrated when I open an article, two advertisements are on the page, and the whole article doesn’t even load. So frustrated! I end up just exiting the app.

Not Very Useful

I have been a print subscriber for over thirty years through a couple of mergers and accessed the digital edition since it became available. The print edition is okay given the state of the industry but the digital edition seems a second thought as most stories are hours old and updates are well after other news outlets have posted the information. Also the Question/Poll of the day no longer works as the link is bad. I noticed that the number of people responding has dropped by several hundred each day so other readers have had the same problem I ran into.

Randomly logs out and cuts off articles

Overall not bad but sometimes when clicking on article links, it says to log in to read it even when already logged in. There’s even a link to “log out” on the same screen which logs you out and takes you back to the sign in page.
Also, frequently find that the last part of articles are cut off; the app won’t let you scroll further to read the end of the articles. Please fix these. Thank you.
