My go-to for News

Great interface, interesting stories, the pictures are fantastic and easy to navigate. I love this app

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.

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.

Doesn't update. Doesn't allow me to read an article.

Thx for fixing the recent Top Stories refresh issue. Good app.

"Please connect to the Internet to view this content." Dude, I am connected to the Internet. Every other app on my phone is connected to the Internet. Maybe you should connect to the Internet. :)

Best App fro New Site Design

I've tried the apps for iOS, Android, Windows and Windows Phone and by far the Windows/Windows Phone versions are the best. In fact, these apps are far superior to trying to read the new site via a web browser. I've only had one instance of the stories not re-freshing and an un-install/re-install seems to have fixed this (note: not acceptable, SeaTimes needs to fix this, but only a minor annoyance). Only other minor complaint is that some times stories appear in the incorrect section. IE: A national news story may appear in the Local news section.

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.

Decent design but it's unusable with the bug where you hit the back arrow from an article and the app thinks it is no longer connected to the Internet. Please, please fix!
