  • Digital edition

    By shakerstan
    Why is there no digital edition for today 9/30? I have been a reader for almost a decade .
  • I can’t get my e-edition.

    By Darren6000
    I don’t know what has happened but I cannot get my e-edition anymore. I never received notice of any update so I don’t know why it just won’t download. I have signed in 50x and get nowhere. I have called support at PD 2days in a row and got zero help. They just wanted to get me off the phone. I haven’t read it in 6 days. Poor poor service. Lost another customer.
  • Last update is a big step backwards!

    By Kd095
    It’s very unstable — freezes and closes at least 2 or 3 times each time I use it. Doesn’t update automatically each time I open it — I have to close and reopen several times to get it to update.
  • Agree with .. it just gets worse

    By Mymephone
    I absolutely hate the sensitivity of the screen. It especially happens at the end of the comics. It’s very frustrating!
  • How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.....

    By world curious
    It seems almost impossible for this app to get worse, and yet they still manage it time after time. Sometimes the app Recognizes my iphoneX, sometimes it demands I sign in yet again and then.....nothing happens. I can always read it on my old iPad but the newer Technology seems to confound it every time. I would quit but given that this is our only local Paper and I am an unabashed Cleveland supporters I am just prepared to revert to swearing uselessly from time to time.
  • It just gets worse...

    By RSukie
    It is now hyper-sensitive to turning the page with even the slightest left-right motion accidentally made while trying to scroll vertically. Also when you zoom out now by tapping, it rarely stays centered where you were but instead jumps to the top of the page. Often when using the button to turn the page, it just goes to the top of the current page instead. And don’t get me started on the sensitivity to accidentally opening the “special sections” while panning around the last page of the regular part of the paper (usually the comics). And then there is the “screen not updating problem” where often sections of a page are not completely rendered resulting in blurry pages until you scroll back a few pages and then forward to where you were - very annoying. This occurs even though I have set the option to download the full paper for offline viewing! Does anyone ever test this app before it gets released? C’mon Plain Dealer, beyond the newspaper content, how well the electronic version works defines the future of the business. Don’t chase people away with a product like this.
  • If is is the best your techs can do, then

    By Lin sc D
    Could you POSSIBLY make it ANY more difficult to get in to the app to read your paper? You need to get Human Resources on the problem ASAP. I have never had such a BAD app. My gosh, I pay for 7 days but I really only get it 4 days because your app doesn’t work - at all. Time to admit, you’re just NOT ready for the digital age. Go back to 7 day home delivery. Really. Seriously. Just give up. There’s no crime in admitting defeat.
  • Some of the Game Center not working

    By Kovalnr
    2/28 - update still not working on iPad version - does work on Mac desktop web version. Went into the crossword puzzle section of the Game Center this morning, but it would not accept any input, (keystrokes). I could see the layout/font had been improved, but it would not allow me to do the crossword. Please fix - thanks!
