The Boston Globe ePaper App Reviews

  • Can’t buy a single issue?

    By Bitzen91
    Ditto to all of the other comments about the stale design and bizarre lack of user friendliness in one of the most tech savvy cities in the world. Oh yeah, you can’t buy a single issue, you have to subscribe for a month at least. Huh?
  • Great for Internet-free situations

    Glitchy app for sure, but it’s great for my daily commute on the T - every morning, my phone has spotty internet access for about 15 minutes underground. This app enables me to download today’s paper ahead of time so I can read the Globe regardless of having an internet connection.
  • Seriously?!

    How could the newspaper that is supposed to represent one of our country’s technology hubs be so helplessly stuck in 2007? This app is more than embarrassment to the paper, it is an embarrassment to the city. I was feeling nostalgic for my old home town, so I purchased a trial subscription. I certainly won’t be renewing.
  • Design decisions make this app lag behind other papers

    I get that some people like this faux paper layout of this app but really it is cumbersome for most users and lags in comparison to the NYT, WSJ and the WashPo. Having to decide whether to download an edition or not as the first pop up when coming to the app is annoying and wastes time. Clicking into a story causes it to go in a non mobile friendly layout where the pictures do not flow well with the story. It is also difficult to scroll from story to story, rather one has to flip through each page of the paper like it is a physical paper. I am going to go out on a limb and guess that most mobile readers do not need to replicate the flow of a physical paper in order to appreciate the stories. I am going to unsubscribe to the Globe because I primarily read my news on mobile and the experience is just disappointing and frustrating. Please modernize this app and ditch the physical paper replication.
  • Icon sizing

    How about you fix the icon sizing? I need a magnifying glass to see them on my iPad Pro 11. Also, why put an app support link in there at all if it leads to the Globe site where there is no app support?
  • Because I can't give it zero stars (update)

    Update: New app is vastly improved. Thanks for listening, Mr. Henry. How do you delete previously read old editions? Btw - Alex Cora is a nice upgrade, too! Up at five no e-paper yet again. Writing this at 6:15 still no e-paper. Did the usual delete and reinstall of app - still no luck. Yesterday app crashed froze my iPad and caused me to do yet another delete and re-install to get paper. Oh, if only I could get the hours of my life back that I've spent messing with the worst app I have ever used. Please Mr. Henry, think about your customers and their experience!
  • No comments are on the app

    Why doesn’t the app include the always-entertaining readers’ comments? It’s a strange and very annoying omission.
  • Excellent Ap timing a problem

    4
    By WJSMINNIEBILL
    Update: I continue to really like the Ap. The only complaint I have is timing of today’s paper’s availability. I am an really riser and typically up by 6:00 a.m. Often when I try to access today’s edition, it is not available. Could it b available earlier I have complained in the past about this application. This new version is much better than the previous one. The newspaper format is great and easy to navigate. I have not experienced the technical problems, others have complained about. I have never had a crash. My Ap is on an iPad.There are 2 minor problems that should be corrected. Sometimes the page swipe gets stuck and I have to press the > at the top of the page to continue. Occasionally when I try open the app I get a message that there is no Internet connection. I then reopen the Ap and it loads correctly. Old comments. I have experienced all the frustrations expressed in these posts. My recommendation is to use the Boston Globe Digital edition. It is great and does not suffer from the problems found in the AP. do not understand why nothing is being done to make this Ap usable. Read the reviews from the readers. The reason I gave it one star is because the wanted to be able comment. If a negative rating were possible, that's what this Ap deserves Is no one listening. Cannot download today's paper Will someone at the Globe please please address the continuing problems with the ePaper. It continues to be a burden to read. The 2 page spread is so hard to read. Having to zoom in and out in order to read the page constantly is tiring. The following are my posts regarding the problems with the ePaper. I spite of the numerous complaints and poor ratings, nothing has been done to fix the problems. The format and navigation make the paper too labor intensive and difficult to read. This morning I tried to read the ePaper. Although I did not think it was possible, the format has gotten worse. 2 page landscape is back. Unable to zoom in when in 2 page view. I could go on and repeat the previous comments regarding the Ap. I have a suggestion; follow the structure of the USA Today ePaper. It is easy to read,excellent navigation etc. The Globe Ap is an embarrassment. Hello, is anyone listening?. If I could give the Ap a zero star I would.
  • Just silly.

    If I wanted to read the paper I’d get the paper. Clumsy and ridiculous. Terrible app. See the NYT.
  • Easier and a little better

    I like the new format but may be hard to understand for some. I scroll thru the articles then open the one I am reading. An improvement.
