I thought about paying, but not with these ads.
Wow is this terrible. The ads dominate the page, even when reading articles. Googling around it seems they don't go away even if you pay. I want to enjoy this app. I considered subscribing to a newspaper (something I've never done in my adult life) but not for a terrible experience like this. I hope Bezos can save these clowns from themselves by showing the way.

Latest update breaks saying "Needs Internet connectivity".
iPhone 5S on AT&T. As I open the app, it pops up a dialog saying "An internet connection is required to view this blog." Error is shown irrespective of whether the phone is on LTE or Wi-Fi.

Keeps crashing!
As other reviewers have noted, this new version keeps crashing. The whole app closes suddenly in the middle of an article and then when I reopen it, it's back on the Top News screen. The old version saved my place, but this one forces me to dig through everything to find what I was reading after a crash.

Good app; ads for paid subscribers seem unfair.
Update: lost ALL my saved articles after update!! Hundreds of carefully curated bookmarks! Must add "export saved articles" function to guard against such bugs! Works great, including offline reading. But needs true full-screen viewing, without status line at the top (see The Economist or Stanza). Also, it feels unfair to pay for the subscription and still have to view the ads (which take up space on the phone's small screen.)

Dictionary doesn't work
Currently, the iOS 7 version is zero for four in defining words.

iOS7 + iPhone 4 = 0
This and other apps freeze, crash & fail to properly refresh. It's buggy.
