Exactly what a paper-loving curmudgeon needs
Needed a way to read the paper when on vacation, but I hate trying to do so via the web. Well, this app is exactly like flipping through the paper on the couch. When you see an article that catches your attention, you tap it which zooms it in for you (you can adjust the zoom manually). Clicking the continuation link on one page takes you to the page on which the article is completed; clicking the "from page," link then returns you to the original page so you may continue browsing. You can go through the paper one section at a time or select whichever section you want. Excellently done.
The new e Edition app is a mess
I don't know why the Bee would think of changing a successful platform to one that is absolutely terrible. For starters this new editor is inundated with pop up ads. Secondly, scrolling to pages has unnecessary ads in between pages and has frozen on me several times unable to move right or left. It was to the point that I has to completely turn from the iPad and start over. The other problem is that one can no longer see the whole page adding to the navigation, making the page smaller in order to see the contents. One should be able to see the whole page then drill down, not the other way around. Get rid of this mess. If not I will probably just unsubscribe to the Bee for good...
My comments pretty much mirror others. Jumpy layout, when I resize a page it jumps to a portion I wasn’t reading. Navigation is much more cumbersome than the prior version. The additional adds are extremely annoying. When I use other paid apps the ads go away. Although this app is free it requires a paid subscription to use so extremely disappointed these ads are forced upon me anyways. A customer service oriented approach would be to provide users the choice to choose classic or current app version. I think you’ll have better insight on which version users prefer.
