Ratings and Reviews
Love the stories, app is clunky
This is the most frequently visited app on my iPhone 6s. I love the content; however the app has never felt stable over all the years I have used it. I will often click on a story, the app will freeze up....and then I get “the white screen of death,” a blank white screen. From there I have to close the app and go through a hard re-boot of my phone before I can read stories again. Now, with the newest version, after I read and go back the the main page, the screen jumps around for 3-4 seconds as it re-orients itself back to where I left off. Again, I really love the stories and will continue to use it, but the software has always made for a poor user experience.
Does not sync subscripton with Apple News!
I downloaded this app and paid for a subscription specifically so I could read Dallas Morning News (DMN) articles in Apple News. I really like the DMN journalism team and am willing to pay for their excellent local work. Even though I thought $5.40/month was high (w/tax), I was willing to give it a shot. But in Apple News any article from DMN wants me to sign up for an additional subscription to view the article. I guess they expect me to close out of Apple News and then go find the same article in the DMN app. Well that is not going to happen.
I contacted DMN and they offered no assistance at all, instead telling me to talk to Apple. Of course, Apple told me to talk to the developer and even included a link to the app support site from DMN, which is a dead link, both from the Apple support email and from the iTunes App Support button under the DMN app. They care so little about supporting their users that the support link does not even work!
I canceled my subscription, got a refund from Apple for the first month, and am deleting the app from all my devices. What a waste of effort.

Clumsy and Hodgepodge
The app is functional but needs work. The available stories are poorly arranged on the hodgepodge homepage and, whether reading from an iPad or iPhone, the story text is small and not particularly readable. There’s a reason publishers typically print long strings of text—like a book or newspaper story—in a serif typeface, sans serif is for titles or short strings of text. With respect to interface there are other issues, to switch to another story the reader must return to the home page and find it. And more importantly, scroll too fast through a story—even the beginning—and it will shoot to another story, in fact it’s very difficult to scroll at all on a large screen without inadvertently loading the next story, and when this (frequently) happens you must return to the homepage to find the story you were trying to read in the first place. In sum, DMN could take some lessons from the Wall Street Journal and New York Times apps. Both are far superior.
