Getting Better

The News-Leader really needs to get down to business and take care of their app. There needs to be better improvement and more frequent improvement overall.

1. The print resolution needs to be legible at a small scale rather than making it a scalable resolution.

2. The app just isn't as smooth running as it should be. Lot of jitteriness when pinching and zooming.

3. Needs to have more iPad Pro features. Reading news papers and magazines on the iPad Pro is great as long as the dev builds the app which can take advantage of those awesome features.

I still cannot give this app a rating above 2 stars because of the lack of interest from the News-Leader in making a good app which customers like and can take advantage of the powerful features the iPad has to offer these days.

The customers pay for digital papers but gets a lot less in return in how the digital paper is consumed.

Update: September 8, 2018

It’s obvious that the News-Leader really doesn’t take any effort in what their customers have to say about their app. Still has some of the terrible problems from two years ago. Terrible. News-Leader...hire someone to build a profession app!!!!

App forces you to log in every day or two, won't remember your log in info like well written apps do. I wouldn't use it if there were other ways to read paper, but since they are charging more for print version and forcing digital on us, guess it's this online or pay more or nothing. One star is generous, rushed to users.

Update: its no better. Avoid if you have a way to read the actual paper.

DO NOT waste your money on this. It keeps closing, does not display half of the pages, etc. I’m sure that they have not updated this app in quite a while, even tried deleting it and reloading it but that does not work either. Guess I will cancel my subscription and save money.
