As an online only subscriber this app is terrible and makes the subscription useless. Continuously takes to you the subscription manager where you can successfully login only to be redirected back to the article for one second then redirected back to the subscription manager. The only parts of the app that works are the headline browser pages. Then, to top things off, when you submit a support request from the app the mail is rejected by the mail server because the support email address is unknown. Just terrible. I regret that I bought my subscription. I would give the app negative stars if I could. They should pay me to be the software tester. I'm paying for something that I'm not getting and then finding the problems with their stuff for free as a bonus. I won't renew unless this thing gets a lot better. Terrible. Simply terrible.

Great Start

It's a good start to what could be a great app. I really like the interface between sections and the scrolling list of articles in the lower left corner (though this should be more front and center). Still, when you choose an article to read, too little of the article is displayed on the screen. When you need to go to the next page the app is clunky, almost as if it is re-opening the article rather than simply moving to the next page. The USA Today app serves as a good model, scroll down to see the rest of the article, swipe right or left to move forward or back in the section (where the next article opens smoothly, not appearing to re-launch).

In general, it's good, but it could be great. I eagerly await the next update. Most great apps get great over time rather than being that way right out of the box.

Pretty Good

I haven't had any issues with the Express-News app. It worked the very first time, it gives me access to many of the stories in the paper, and it even has comics.
It would be better if it had ALL the stories from the paper (if they're all there, I can't find a bunch of 'em), ALL of the comics from the paper (it only has a few comics, and not all of them are the same as in the print edition - more comics is something I think the print edition needs anyway), and it could have easier random access to sections (the Coverflow-like option is nice, but a quick way to get from the first section to, say Sports, without going through the other sections) would be very handy.
