This app is horrible. It crashed 25 times on Sunday before I could finish the first section. Come on Plain Dealer, get your act together. The readers you have left deserve better.

App Just Like the Paper
It is glitchy, poorly and cheaply executed, rarely updated in any meaningful fashion, and the folks who are responsible for it could not possibly care any less about the user. It is about undertaking the least possible effort so the "publisher" can claim it offers an app. Skip the paper, skip the app, pray daily that the publisher sells the paper to someone who wants to run a real newspaper and will pay real money for a real app.

Fed Up
The app constantly crashes, at least 3-4 times per reading. When you try to move through the pages it becomes blurry. You have to zoom out and zoom back in. To make matters worse it will go from blurry, fine, blurry, fine, while there is no movement on the screen. The constant password and user name entering finally doesn't prompt every time you open the app. But don't click on the wrong selection... Bam. You have to enter your password. Thinking about giving it up, really not worth $60 every 3 months.

Not that bad
Everyone is saying how bad it is. Once you get used to it and know how to use the features, its great. I honestly will forget we have an actual paper certain days and just read it on this. Also, my whole family can read, so my kids dont argue about the comics and the sports at breakfast. Overall, its got a few bugs, but its a pretty useful app.

Please fix!
This app used to work great! Now, it is so annoying. It continually logs user off and shuts down. It often gets blurry, or jumps around. With only four days of CLE papers, would be nice if you took the time to correct these issues. Your readers would appreciate it!

Agreed: Worst Reader App Ever
How many years have they had to improve this App after the disastrous rollout of the digital edition? Frequent glitches, mystery log outs, and blurred print. If you forget your password it does not even give an option for resetting it. If anyone at the PD reads this review perhaps they will consider fixing that.

Also endless log-ins
In the last couple of weeks I have to log-in whenever I open. Never remembers me.

Endless Logins
Lately the app wants me to log in almost every time, even if I just leave for a few moments and then go back in again. This remains the very worst newspaper app I've ever seen. It's astounding they pass it off as acceptable, with a straight face.

Deleted it
So not only do I have to remember a stupid login and password EVERY time I open this app (what is it, a bank or something?) what appears is barely readable. This app is useless.
