    Bad bad bad 😩
  • Bad app

    By Lyric Traveler
    App only appears to open from alerts generated by source. If I try to enter app on my own, it consistently fails and directs to site that says I have only 5 articles a month, even though I am a paid subscriber.

    New app is very slow. Using on iphone 5. Makes reading the paper a burden.
  • Need iPad app

    By Bull Durham 68
    It's ok, but you need an iPad version. I find myself using the website instead, especially where it looks just like the newspaper itself.
