Worked just fine before the update. Wish I could get the old version back.
Reading an entire article is now a pain. Before, you could just tap the article, and the complete story would pop up on the screen. Now you have to go to page 6, and when you're done, you have to go back to page 1. Might as well be reading a regular paper.
The little translucent tabs, at the sides of the screen, are nothing more than distracting.
Expanding the comics, so you can read them, seems to cause problems when you move them up and down.
After 2 days, I haven't been able to see any advantages.

Big improvements in user experience!

Lots of improvements have been made to the CJ app. Give it a try, send any feedback to the Capital Journal.

Terrible app. Terrible advertising banner on the iPad

Terrible app. The blank advertising space on the top part of the iPad screen is ridiculous. I want to read the paper with the full screen on the iPad. Put the advertising in the paper, not on the top as a banner. The old version from years ago was infinitely better.
