Horrible Ap

I absolutely hate this ap. It often takes a very long time to load, it closes on its own when you try to move around in it. Not everything can be viewed such as “what’s happening” and cartoons on the editorial page. Ads pop up without being selected. If you down load to read, you cannot enlarge the print. And there’s no way to get out of the down load. The only reason I have kept it is there are no other options for local news. Looking at the other ratings it appears the Olympian is unconcerned with displeasure with the ap. Read to be done!

A Terrible change to the e-edition app!

The Olympian has changed the e-edition just recently. A huge downgrade of this product. I use The Olympian app on an iPad. Although one can still see the paper like a print version one cannot enlarge the copy without losing part of the page. And the ads are a constant annoyance. Worst for me, one can no longer access previous editions or download an edition to read offline later when there is no internet access. I called customer service. They were off no assistance. Shane on you McClatchy and The Olympian.

First Saturday Newspaper online only

Not as good as holding a paper in your hands. Also has old, old stories, like reading last weeks paper. Why not try a format which copies the format of the actual newspaper? That would be original.

Still attempting to read this “newspaper “. Where are the comics and advice column?What about the crossword? What about this moment in history?

I am old-fashioned, I know, but I savor the old newsprint and paper. (I do appreciate the newer inks.) This app does not present things in a way which is close enough to what I enjoy. It is attempting to copy the other news apps, without having enough to offer to be them.

Please try another approach if you are determined to do this online thing. You can’t compete with Apple News.
