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.

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. ,

Ridiculously bad: how to lose subscribers

I am a new print and digital subscriber, and this is the worst newspaper app I’ve tried yet. I love getting the print paper the old fashioned way, but I want access on my electronic devices, too. DOES NOT WORK. Seriously, it makes me log in every single time and now it won’t recognize my subscription as valid — even though I double-/ triple-checked that I’d signed in properly. This is anti-marketing. It frustrates me and makes me think a subscription is not worthwhile. Don’t put a bad app out there — it makes me want to cancel the subscription altogether. This is June 26th. See whether anything changes and when.
