Slow, buggy and crashtastic
This app is just fine, when it works. But beware: it can be a 3-5 minute wait before enough content loads to start reading, and then the app frequently crashes. The good: provides a decent interface to read the entire paper, when it's working. The bad: - Frustratingly slow to load content. I'm writing this review today because it refuses to load the Sunday paper. - Crashes frequently - flawed scanning of papers means most articles have bad typos, runtogetherwords, etc. - only loads the first half of some articles - some content often broken - missing images. Example: Sunday comics seldom work - wonky UI means pages often turn themselves. This USA good idea with poor execution. I've gotten used to the Sentinel (AKA Senile) publishing a Web edition full of bugs, and in 15 years of reading online,it has only gotten worse. I should not be surprised their iPad edition is also very flawed.

Nice try but still lousy. - need to move to newsstand
This is basically a retread of the "e-edition" previously available on a pc. This app just downloads images of the actual paper. That is the wrong approach. They should use the newsstand publishing format like the chronicle does. If the sentinal switches to that format I would subscribe immediately. This app, no way.
