Should Get Better Delivery Drivers and the Circulation Manager Should be Fured

I thought I would give them one last try, reinstated my subscription and ask that the paper be put on my porch. No paper was delivered for 3 days. Call in my complaint, and the issue was not resolved. No paper. Called to cancel, and was promised a full refund. No refund. To staff members of LSJ, you maybe losing your job because a delivery driver can not follow directions and a circulation manager who doesn’t give a crap.

Very difficult to use now

This app used to work great, but this latest version ( is so bad that cancellation has entered the discussion. Specifically I prefer being able to swipe to turn pages. I can adjust to using the arrow buttons, but for the love of journalism, please then move the side menu, so I don’t keep ending up in USA Today when my big fat thumb is off target by any amount. It would also be AMAZING if, besides setting the preference for opening in eNewspaper view, it could also remember that, like anyone trying to read a paper on a tablet, I want it in full screen. (Does anybody read it with two pages displayed side by side?) I get that people may want to search for something, but that shouldn’t be the default, in my opinion. When the app allows be to zoom into what one would hope is a half of a page, it is more like two-thirds wide, causing the user to do lots of sliding left and right to read headlines, articles, etc. I really hope this can be improved. Thanks for reading my vent. I use an iPad and am on latest iOS.

Update to e-Newspaper is AWFUL

There is so much wrong with the update, it’s hard to know where to start. It’s extremely hard to read now (super small font), it crashes randomly, it can’t be used in landscape orientation, there is a content-blocking bar across the top of the USA Today pages, there are now full-screen-blackening ads that come up during the reading of the paper that must be waited on and finally “X’d” out in order to continue reading, and those are only to name a few. Regarding the ads that black out the screen: we PAY for the subscription and the newspaper itself is full of ads, why are we interrupted now to see an ad??? The LSJ Print Edition app is gone and this is the only one available now. We can only hope that LSJ will go back to the app as it was because this newest app is horrible.
