  • Horrible App

    By paper stinks
    Please go back to the other app. I cannot read this one as it is on the right hand side of my iPad and is 1/4 size of the screen. I called your office and they told me they could not help me. He said wait a few days and it would get better. That was 5 days ago and it has NOT IMPROVED! I am paying for something I cannot read. Get with it!!!
  • Terrible app

    By Ski Tiger on the Divide
    This app was tweaked several weeks back for the much, much worse. I have read The State for 70 years, the last 15 on my iPad. I liked the facsimile of the printed newspaper. Since the most recent tweak, it has been a rare day that anything worked well. No online paper again today. Much more of this and you will lose another reader. Get it right and smooth or we are gone.
  • Frustrating

    By M99er222
    E edition does not seem to work on an iPad. I want to be able or read the news each morning without having to go through a computer workout.
  • Bad app upgrade

    By CeannD
    Recent app changes have made The State unreadable on my iPad. Pages aren’t in focus, it’s impossible to zoom in, it’s jerky and half the time the icons at the top of the screen don’t work. If you don’t fix soon I will drop my subscription.
  • Useless App

    By Winemaker223
    The recent “improvement” of this app is totally useless. Load errors, out of focus pages, crashes, inability to login, lock ups, inability to enlarge pages! Why did you mess up a perfectly good app. Tired of fighting this every morning. Customer service is no help. 0 stars is my rating. I’m done with The State.
  • Horrible App

    By bo1045
    Try reading on iPad. Can’t make newspaper view large enough to read as it runs off page. Previous app worked great. If you can’t fix this one then go back to olive version. It worked well. Why change something that is not broken. If this is not fix3d soon then I will be leav8ng. No since in keeping something that is broken
  • Worthless App

    By Discouraged Subscriber
    The new e-edition app (10/19) is horrible. Slow to load, crashes frequently, hard to move thru. Worst of all, if it happens after 10 pm, read about it somewhere else, not in this paper. Sad to watch their demise. THE STATE is dead and doesn’t even know it.
  • New app is AWFUL...RUINS my morning

    By Sqfromsc
    I have been reading the paper digitally since its inception. This is the worst app...when you can see a the entire page, the font is too small and there is the Dignity ad staring you in the face...make the font large enough to read and you lose a portion of the article...not a way to start the day frustrated.

    By SkipontheLake
    As a long time subscriber to The State, I am distressed that this new app is practically unusable on an iPad. Why can’t we just get a replica edition that looks and reads like a newspaper, not the ad bloated user hostile version that the platform has now transitioned to?
  • What happened today?

    By imjamie1
    The app isn’t working. So, I deleted and reloaded it. I sure hope this isn’t your idea of an improvement because it takes an act of patience to open the e-edition and then it’s definitely not user friendly to navigate on my iPad. Yesterday all was well. If this is the finished product I’ll not renew our subscription.
