Tapping a headline brings up wrong article

I love the app. However, when I tap a headline on the main page, it frequently brings up the article just above the one I want. The error occurs roughly half the number of times I use the app, and it has persisted for months.
I’ve carefully watched while testing the problem, and can rule out inaccurate tapping. Even when I clearly tap near the bottom of the chosen headline, the article above comes up instead. This error has only been noticed on the app’s default main page and I’ve never seen it occur on other iPhone apps.

I like the new interface.

I’m still getting use to it, but I like the utility of the new website. The addition of the regional traffic is fantastic. I know I can get that elsewhere, but it is a great service right there with the weather, which has been part of the local paper since the dawn of weather...featured in the local paper. Only suggestion is to add something on the front face to make us laugh. We need to laugh more.

Don’t like new format

I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the Press Herald as a paper. I’d rate it a 4 or 5 stars as such. I also would have rate the electronic edition the same before the change in format. I find it hard to quickly scan it to find the articles I want. Please offer the old format back.
