Ratings and Reviews
Amazing app, but...
So I don’t want to change the star rating, because this is truly a GREAT app. Wish NY TImes and Wall Street Journal would get onboard already, jeez. But there is some room for improvement. For example, if my screen times out for any reason (naps over the Sunday paper, snack breaks,etc.) I lose my place where I was reading, and I’m taken back to the Home Screen. A little annoying to have to flip back through sections... I read the paper how I read a book, just straight through, so I’m not always mindful of what page or section I left off on. Also, the tap to enter web content feature is TOO sensitive. Annoyingly so. A lot of the time that I try to swipe to turn the page, I’m redirected to the ask if I want to open the webpage, or just taken straight there. That honestly does disrupt by flow quite a bit. Would be better if there was one link per page to go to the webpage, instead of making the whole page a link. This also happens when I try to zoom in on text or images.
The journalism and coverage is very good, but I have been reading the publication on an iPad and an iPhone and find that functions such as page turning and zooming frequently go awry on both platforms. Pages may turn when I intend to zoom in, a section often closes when I mean to turn a page, or the fuller version of an article opens when I’m merely trying to scroll within the print edition. Most frustrating is that often, when I am scrolling within an article, the app interprets intention to scroll as a command to zoom out; thus, I constantly find myself having to resize the text, which is quite annoying and distracting. Isn’t there a way to make these features behave more deliberately?
Best of the E Newspapers
Whether you like the content or not, the Post is the best enewspaper. It gives you an authentic page turning experience of each edition (a feature sorely missed in WSJ and NYT), ease in reading articles as if in print by enlarging on screen or opening, and my favorite +++ the ability to easily share links (via text, email, or social media) that give others the ability to read the full article. This last one seems a no brainer function (but is annoyingly unavailable on USATODAY) that lets me share noteworthy articles with friends and colleagues for discussion and information.
