Need to be fixed!
The app is just a reader of a PDF of the paper. Good enough for me to be able to read the local paper that I pay for while away on business trip. If you have daily home delivery of the newspaper, the the subscription is just about $1/month. However, the app at this point is not working well. I have not being able to use since it keeps crashing. Need fixing soon...

Slow, unintuitive clinker
The demo edition took almost 5 minutes to load and is stuck at 99%. Navigation is unintuitive - example: if I choose to read the text version why do I need to still see all the graphics and photos above the text (which takes up valuable page real estate). Take a look at how kindle does newspapers and learn from that layout. I also dislike subscriptions that auto renew. Nice try, PD but like the Browns, this app is not ready to compete in the real world.

Great app at first
This app seemed ok the first day I used it but now it has just crashed for the 3rd time. Because it won't remember your password, each time you have to re-logon and it starts from the beginning, not the last page you were reading. I was reading the paper using the Safari browser but liked this version better if it would stop crashing. This is an update. Nothing has been done to fix this app in the several days since my last complaint. I find it hard to believe I'm the only user and that I'm the only one having trouble with this app. It crashes over and over each time I try to use it. I have the original iPad. I guess I have to give up. I can't find anywhere else to complain about this.
