Great app but crossword usability issues
The newspaper part of this app is outstanding. The ability to download the print edition an to keep more than one edition on my device is fantastic. It's great that the crossword finally works. However, the designers apparently never considered screen layout. The ipad keyboard popup covers all the down clues, and half the puzzle. Portrait mode is disallowed, even though it appears that would be a more useful layout. The designers should look at the usatoday app to see how a crossword can be presented on an ipad in a way that is usable.

Not responding
The app pages are spotty - many blanks. Tried to download the print edition with the link - it loaded once, then quit and never resumed service. Certainly not worth paying for when they start charging.

Comics
Comics should be color every day instead of black and white. We should be able to fill the cross words that appears on print edition.

Needs to have a "National" section.

Liked old app better, but...
I deleted and reinstalled my app, and it appears to be working correctly now.

Getting Closer
The last update wouldn't open. This one opened but froze the first time, but opened the second. The new interface is much better and will be great when the bugs are finished off. Favorte news app and thanks for adding the comics. I'll be back to 5 stars as soon as the bugs are gone again.
