Not impressed.
This company's track record on their news apps for the SF Bay Area is abysmal, and this one is no better. It's just a scan of the printed newspaper, ads and all, and is very slow and erratic to navigate. Not much news, either. These people should take lessons from Yahoo's My Yahoo page, where it's easy to find articles, no clutter on the page, speed is great, news is findable without scrolling past endless ads and photos that add nothing to the experience of finding news items. Photos are fine on the news article's page, but not cluttering up small iPad screens and crowding out article titles. Putting together a news app isn't rocket science; just list the articles and let people choose which ones to read.

Used to be great...
But recently, this app has been very slow to open. Sometimes it doesn't open at all. Or it starts to get open and then gets stuck. Or it opens and no editions appear. "Recently" is the last two weeks. It used to be a wonderful app, but it isn't now.

Crashes Incessantly
This is crashing incessantly. Rarely can I read an entire issue. Today's crash cannot be avoided even with a hard iPad reboot. Could be a pretty good app if it worked. By contrast, PressReader seems to be much more solid for reading newspapers.
