Decent app. Love Seattle Times

Good app. Can definitely use a couple of updates to make it more stable. As always, Seattle Times content is great.

loss of Connection

The App has a frequency of going offline and its very annoying. I am uninstalling till they fix the problem. This issue has been there for quiet some time now, even when I had Windows 8.1

Overall, very good. However, it frequently complains about not having an internet connection even though I am connected. It wouldn't bother me as much if the retry button worked. I've only been able to fix it by force-closing the app.

Keeps insisting I need to connect to the internet even when I am clearly online (as verified through other apps). Haven't been able to use it for over a week despite uninstalling and reinstalling. App is pretty useless right now.

I read an article and close it, click on the next article and I get a window saying that I need to connect to the internet. I am connected to both Wi-Fi and cell internets. I have deleted the app and reloaded. Works for 2 or 3 tries and the same happens.

Blank news stories and frequently thinks I am offline

This app will frequently display a message that says I am offline, even though I am online. If I force close the app, it will recognize I am online when I launch the app again. My second big complaint is that I will open a news story and the body of the article will not display. No amount of closing and launching fixes this. I wonder how this app cleared the app approval process.

Slow close to being a great news app.

Yes, the accolades for the aesthetics and the feel for this app are merited, but it's got to run well first. The app has difficulty reconnecting to the internet if it loses connection mid-stream or launched before a wireless connection has been established. More frustrating than that is the continued delay in refreshing content. I read a paper online much like I would a paper in print... regularly, expecting to read something new each day. I'm back to paper and the website until this improves. Too bad, it was so close to being a great news app.

Fix the problem where the app says it's not connected, even when cell or Wi-Fi signal is strong. I'm about done with this poor quality app.
