  • Horrible

    By Alethea121
    We can’t take our iPad with us and enjoy the paper . We try to download the replica but it is always lost. The other app was so much better.
  • Not an improvement

    By WordyMAL
    I had to jump through hoops at the EN customer help line because my previous Ap, which I loved, was no longer working without any explanation. Never did get an explanation, so I figured how to get the new one, and that there WAS a new one, on my own. The original Ap was much better. It just came up and I could read it without signing in every single time.
  • Forced payment

    I did not request this and now I am being asked to pay for something I did not want or need. Scam.
  • Express news still can’t deliver

    By still can't deliver
    Much like the home delivery, the express news just can’t deliver. This version does not contain the same content as the print version. Most days the content cannot be accessed or requires multiple sign ins. The express news can’t get dependable delivery to paid subscribers home. Pure crap.
  • Not worth it

    By DDCR
    Why do I have to pay $5.99 for the app if I already subscribe to the news paper account? I subscribe to the Washington Post and the New York Times and don’t have to pay to use the app to access the “paper.”
  • Latest Update Not an Improvement

    By Aclint
    I am not sure the the latest version is actually an improvement over the previous one. Main complaints are: (i) why in the world with the “Main news” section have so many articles on the Spurs? All of those belong solely in the sports section. It makes no sense for users looking for latest news to have to wade thru a Main section cluttered with Spurs articles. (ii) The “Main News” section, instead of showing stories from today’s print edition, contains a lot of really old articles (the same ones I have been seeing for weeks). For example, today (Jan 21) there is still being carried in the Main News section a Jan 2 article on the first baby born in S.A. on New Year’s Day and another old article on an old Mayor - why in the world???
  • Maybe end of subscribing

    By RKCvaluesit
    I have taken 7 day week delivery for 50+years. Although it is now a leftist publication I continue to subscribe. Only the Sports and Faith sections keep me eager to read.
  • Updated format

    By BigBob2242
    No such thing as being able to see what is happening NOW. If you go to “top news” one sees a few local news items then an ungodly number of sports, food, etc. NO national news whatsoever. A second grader could have come up with a better format. Obits are at least 2 days behind. That’s up to date for sure! These issues are on my iPhone and iPad. Sorry but I don’t walk around with a laptop in my back pocket. The sight is total rubbish.
  • Step Backward

    By xyz1
    Moving to a UI consisting of large tiles makes scanning stories to decide which ones to read much more tedious. On my iPad Pro the home page Top News section displayed the complete tile for just one story. What a waste of screen space. No longer having a split view with story titles on one side and the text of the selected article on the other side also makes using the app more of a chore. There is also no visual queue which stories have been opened. Since stories appear in multiple sections it makes it a pain to quickly spot stories that have not been opened. I’d go back to the old design if I could. Please add an option for a mode to present stories in a list format w/o the picture tiles that has a visual queue to mark stories that have been opened.
  • Bring back the crossword puzzle!

    Pretty lame to just remove a major feature and then offer no refund for a year long subscription.
