    Recently subscribed to the digital edition of the Globe and use an iPad or iPhone as primary interface. The App is poor, unbefitting of an otherwise great newspaper. Downloading requires hitting "download" several times; and after you get through that, it takes a couple of minutes to download, even with a strong internet connection (NY Times, in contrast, takes a few seconds). After downloading, one sees a miniature version of the print edition and has to click on tiny articles to expand/read them. This interface is archaic, and in stark contrast to the way almost all other news apps present information (again, the NY Times makes it easy to navigate and read articles). Even when I bite the bullet and swipe through articles (vs. pages of the paper), the same article frequently appears several times (must be a glitch in a buggy App). I've complained about all this several times to the Globe, but there didn't appear to be much concern. The low user ratings here however should be sending a clear message they can't (or shouldn't) ignore. Apr 2017: Cancelled subscription and re-subscribed after 9 months after the subscription department told me their iPhone app had been updated. I took that to mean overhauled and fixed, which it decidedly is not. Jun 2017: They claim to have upgraded the app ... but that's not apparent to me. I'm cancelling my subscription again until they have a complete reconstruction of the app.

    I really don't care about features. I just want to read the paper in a straightforward manner. I could with the old app. I can't with the new app. It freezes and crashes constantly. When it does work, it's user unfriendly. I can deal with extra steps to get to reading it, but when I'm reading it please don't make me do anything more than swipe to get to the next page. In the previous version I could resize the viewing area and move around the entire page without having to resize it again. Now it resizes to only what's viewable and then I have to shrink it again then move around the page then resize it. And you guys thought that was an improvement????? Also have to do the same thing when I want to swipe to the next page. In the previous version even if I'd resized it I could swipe to the next page no problem. Now I have to shrink it before I can swipe to the next page. You may have added fancy features, but the basic ability to read the paper seamlessly has been severely compromised. Please fix. Thanks.

    4/16 update. It's still an awful app! Has crashed 5 times already this morning. It's been months and the app is still a piece of crap. It crashes constantly and the digital editor at the Globe obviously doesn't care. What else does he have to do but ensure that the content gets delivered? The new app is a bigger pos than one would believe possible from an institution as big as the Globe. It won't load, is clunky to use, ugly, and totally worse than the previous one which worked fine. Why the Globe changes things that work for things that don't demonstrates a stunningly dysfunctional and incompetent bunch of managers. The Boston Herald app works perfectly. The Globe should call them for advice. Dec 12,2016 The app is still terrible. An amateurish, cheap, throwaway piece of software that the management obviously could give a crap about. Absolutely frustrating and pathetic. PS. "Thunder" who wrote a tribute review for this app must be the father of the 8th grader who wrote the software.
