    Soooooo much wasted potential!can not tell if it is ignorance, laziness or incompetence. This app just keeps getting worse. Is it really the best that Gannett can do? Scary if it is. I want so much to like this app, but in all the years they have had it, it has never become a quality app. Wish I could say something good about it.

    Even if you have an account you can't get access. Try to log in and it tells your account is associated with this but it won't let you see the pages.
  • White screen

    I cannot find any way to contact the developers to report this issue, so I will try here. The editions page is just a blank screen with the letter "a" on it.
  • Useless

    Never actually worked. You put in an email address and basic info but can't log in. It really is the worst app I've seen in a while!

    Bad to sell something that does not work.

    I registered my name but could never get it to open. If it's a pay thing, at least take me to a pay screen so I can buy it. But it just spins for a few seconds and just sits there.
  • Rendering & download

    Letter spacing is often messed up. Occasionally links to other pages where articles continent are incorrect or stop after one link even when article runs three or more pages. Today's edition download started with page A5 not A1 with no option to reload the edition.
  • Great improvements

    I have always liked this app because I like to read in a traditional newspaper format, but I was frustrated by it's slow responsiveness and frequent crashes. Love the new changes! It is faster, hasn't crashed at all, and is much more responsive to page changes. Makes reading the morning paper much easier and more enjoyable.
  • Give it a chance

    Once you get used to the format, and the different functions, it actually works quite well. Just give it time, and learn how ALL of the different functions work, and you will likely love it just like I do. I mean seriously... For $10/month (about 33 cents/issue), you can't really complain. I actually prefer the print edition app over the app for iPad. Give it a chance.
  • Too clunky I might as well read the print version

    Usually I give fair to excellent ratings but not in this case. The NY Times has a much better app for cruising and reading on my pad, phone or desktop. This is too clunky, poor response, the ads are way too intrusive (even more intrusive than in the actual hard copy). As has been pointed out before it's basically a semi indexed PDF of the printed paper I get each morning except that it is harder to read in this application. I will be interested to see if they decide to actually create a smoother app as the NYT has done. I hope so.
