New version is a disaster
The new version that came out around the beginning of September 205 is a total disaster. The articles are arranged in an incomprehensible jigsaw puzzle on the screen and they jump around and get re-arranged as you scroll. You end up chasing the articles around the screen. It's kind of like a game to see if you can catch your article.
Beyond that, the nav bar on the left doesn't appear when you tap the nav icon in the upper left. You have to scroll down to get to the nav bar. And then you can't even scroll all the way to the last item.
This is apparently the first foray into mobile content design ever attempted by the company who created this mess. I would suggest going back to the previous version which was at least coherent.
Please keep this..and make the new crApp “slide” away!
This app has more content, and less intrusive ads, than that horrible “NewsSlide” abomination! Send that piece of junk back to the socialists in Montreal where it belongs, and keep THIS platform!
I’d willingly pay $10 or so per year to keep this, over the platform that has only a few stories (as well as the editorials with an obvious leftward slant) instead of all the opinion pieces (including reasonable editorials), plus the numbers of stories that are on this platform, along with being able to go back a day or two. I can’t go back to reference articles on the new platform.
Again, save this app, and please make the new one like this one, with the same amount and accessibility of content, or just scrap that app and start over!
A huge step backwards
What a disappointment. Nothing but a watered down version of what a news site should be. Heck, even the obituaries only show 1or 2names. You have to be a high ranking white collar professional or a former government, civic or Blade employee to be mentioned there.
This is a disaster of a site, that leaves out so much. If you want to see what’s going on in the Toledo area, other than the drive-by snippets that only cover a small number of things, then this is for you.
As for the rest of us that like to see more than the barest of content and variety of items, this is the pits.
