Love the app, hate the update

Thoroughly enjoy using the app and having access to great content. However since the last update I’ve been experiencing an issue. If I’m in the middle of an article and my phone lock screen comes on (e.g. if I don’t touch the screen for a certain amount of time), when I swipe back in the article automatically returns to the beginning/top of the page. Very annoying for longer articles having to go back through and find my place. Please fix!


Soo Sad …

Are used to love reading your paper karma but now that you need a subscription for most everything, I’m pretty much turned off to the newspaper. It’s much easier to go to another website and read all you want for free without being interrupted and trying to pick and choose between the subscription rate. It’s a shame because I think you’re losing so much in customer satisfaction and an advertising due to asking for the money I still read your paper from time to time but it’s dropped off 95%. It’s just not worth the time and effort to filter through to what you can read easily on 100 other websites. Thanks for all the years you’ve given me and I’ve been joyed your paper

Excellent app with one overriding flaw

NO OTHER NEWS APP HAS THIS FLAW which I have reported several times with no response Excellent content and easy to use but one flaw found only in one other news app (Detroit Free Press app) makes using this app frustrating to the point of avoiding it. 1)If I am reading a article 2)Want to get additional information on a place, name, event, statistic, etc. 3) Goto another source anywhere else on the internet such as Wikipedia, Google maps, etc. 4) I am returned to the “Top Stories” page instead of the article I was reading I normal use an iPad Pro running the most iPadOS 15.1 but this flaw has been present for at least 3 months through several system upgrades
