Newest update is awful!

I loved the e-edition of the TNT. I was ok with giving up the paper copy after 30 years because the e-edition looked the same, it was easy to read the articles, easy to move between pages. It was clean and crisp, much like the actual newspaper.
But now it's been changed to "reflect the desktop experience."
If I wanted the desktop experience, I would have opened it on my computer instead of on my iPad.
This new version is cluttered and ugly. It doesn't come up with the entire page, allowing the user to quickly scan the articles. Now I have to manually reduce each page down, taking care not to accidentally brush the outside edges. Touching an article no longer opens the article, but zooms in on the entire page. This is so much harder to read!
Please bring the old version back!!

New update is a mess

After years of enjoying the e-edition, it is suddenly a horrible experience. Reading an article without clutter requires double-clicking it, then selecting a “globe” icon in order to get away from the clutter. Problem is that the app no longer allows one to swipe to the next article. Instead, you must close the current article, then select page view to find the next article, then go through the same process again, over and over....just let me swipe to the next article like before! Yeah, I know the articles are listed to the right, but they are often the articles from the previous page. I won’t be renewing my subscription if this isn’t fixed.

Ditto...Newest (late Sept 2017) version is awful

The "new and improved" app is hopeless. It is impossible to read. Ads pop all over the place (perhaps the reason for the "update"?), one can't open an article the way one could before, one can't see an entire page at a time (except for a small version that is too small to do anything but read the largest headline), and the list goes on.

I've read the TNT for over 20 years. If this is the version that sticks, that won't continue.
