Would LOVE to read it but...
It crashes all the time. Time to read another newspaper. SAD!

Awful headlines font
First Impression: not something I want to pay to use. Headline font choice is awful. I'm straining to make out the words quickly. Leads included under headlines are rarely complete sentences or thoughts. How is that helpful to judging whether to read the story? Story layout seems poorly organized and not dense enough. Only seeing four stories on a screen as large as the iPad feels silly and wastes my time flipping to new pages. Main screen ad is given too much real estate. Navigation is confusing. Sections button makes sense, but then the toolbar at the bottom leads you into a whole series of menus at seem like nonsense, go multiple layers dip and never return to the full page navigation of the articles. Second star is for not crashing in the first ten minutes of use. Better than where some media companies started.

Frequent crashes. They want people to pay for this?
At least 50% of the time, this app crashes or freezes at startup. When it does work, page scrolling and manipulation is not reliable. The print view feature, which I find useful, is also beset with problems at times. I would not ever consider paying (paywall) for a subscription until these fundamental problems are resolved.

Crashes in print edition
It's almost constant after downloading the print edition. I defy you to launch it because its impossible. Hope it continues to be "complimentary" as I would never pay for this crash happy app.

Buggy
Frequently the print edition will crash or not download day's edition. I will not be subscribing unless this is fixed.

Crashes. New App inferior to old App.
Loved the old App. New app you cannot navigate, crashes all the time, reinforces perception that old print media cannot innovate. Not sure who makes these decisions but apple, google or Facebook would never let this go out the door - Don Graham should know that. Has been acting this way for a month. Agile development should not allow this.
