The "Edit" function does not work. There used to be a "Print" version but it is not available. Poor design. You guys can do better ! Ask Arial for his input. Creativity is needed.

Not good. Why not use the Wall Street Journal app as your template? Even The NY Times app. Sorry to be harsh but you asked!

Can not turn off background refresh

Content is good. App is not so good. There is no obvious way to turn off background refresh. Background refresh stays on even when the global setting is turned off! This will drain your battery. If you want to check it out for yourself, go to settings, then battery, and look at the activity report. This app is always in the top 2 or 3 for battery usage.

I will probably cancel my subscription when the annual renewal comes up because of this issue.

Daily aggravation

If it is your desire to be aggravated on a daily basis, subscribe to this sorry example of a news reporting organization. The availability of sections changes daily and trying to navigates the pages is an example of futility. Right in the middle of an article, the pages will just decide to fail, sending you back to your screen home page. I have learned, over the last few years, that the State newspaper is a horrible example of objective reporting with no concern for customer service.
