Mix representative.

Worked OK however the developers were not consistent from day too day. Sometimes the print feature worked, sometimes not. Sometimes articles selected were collective, sometimes I had to search for the rest of the story. Sometimes a different article was interjected. Sometimes a specific article could not be selected. What I was not aware of, until reading the comments, that this “app” edition was in addition to the “on line” edition I am already paying for. I use to get home delivery, but they couldn’t do that well either. SDU bought out all the local papers, and it been unsatisfying since

Buggy app, very poor tech support

The paper is great, but the app is very buggy. It’s a shame because when the app works it’s actually a great way to read the paper. Unfortunately it’s quite buggy (frozen interface, article clicks not responding as they should). Whenever I report an problem directly from the app it supplies all the technical detail tech support should need (platform, OS version, app version, etc). But every time, every single time, I get a generic response back (giving me nonsensical advice like “clear the cache and the cookies, try a different browser). I’m trying to be forgiving during this time when they probably aren’t fully staffed, but they clearly don’t care about fixing the app.

Continues to get worse

Every time they update this, the workability decreases. I have been a subscriber for over 30 years, and used the digital version as soon as it was introduced. But I finally gave up after their last “upgrade”. Not responsive, cumbersome, and when I called about the new issues, the rep really wasn’t very well informed about it. His best guess was to reboot it, and he had no idea how to deal with the issues. I cancelled my subscription, it just isn’t worth the high blood pressure trying to get it to work.
