App Reviews

  • This app is crap

    By David6670
    Please, Mr. Henry, just give up and buy rights to use the WaPo or NYT app. They're very different from each other, but both are perfectly acceptable. By contrast, this app is crap. I don't mind most of the things that seem to bother other reviewers, but the number of times it freezes, or won't download the newest edition, or doesn't respond to attempts to proceed to the next page and then decides to respond to all of the attempts at once by skipping ahead many pages, or responds to an attempt to enlarge the current page by sort of going back a page and then returning to the current page, or..., is infuriating. The features are acceptable but the bugs are intolerable.
  • Not good

    I recommend calling the Globe customer service department to subscribe over the phone for the online edition. I know it’s old fashioned, but the service is way better. I subscribed through iTunes the first time. It’s not Apple’s fault as it’s a third party app, but the app was useless. No login access to the paper nor to my account. The app developer could not help me. Apple promptly volunteered to credit me so I could make arrangements directly with the Boston Globe. Now it’s all good.
  • Need Internet access to view downloaded issues?

    What's the point of downloading issues if you can't view offline? Seems like big miss for app functionality to me. I want to be able to read downloaded issues when I do not have wifi, seems pretty basic.
  • Revised to junk

    It's great when it works, but constant struggles with the store and now it simply crashes repeatedly....latest update is suddenly very unstable as of May 27, 2014. Not happy as I am a paid subscriber to the globe. Not acceptable. As of iOS 11this app is junk. Basically needs to be deleted and reinstalled daily. How is the globe not getting it? Dump your app developer. How hard can this be?

    The app barely functions. I have had it for years and sadly dealt with its issues. It freezes, crashes, glitches, and rarely functions properly. I don't know why I even have a subscription to the paper ($30 a month!) when they neglect the very platform used to read the paper.
  • Because I can't give it no stars

    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!
  • An embarrassment

    Words can't describe just how bad this app is. Downloads get hung up so that one can be waiting days for issues that never show up. The Globe should be embarrassed that it's name is associated with this piece of junk. Don't buy it.
  • Zero step forward, two steps back

    No quality assurance at all. Sunday paper is usually missing a section. Don't they use the app? I read the Globe despite the app. Mr. Henry deserves deserves better. After 3 major updates, still a pain to read an article in page mode without links. Scrolling while zoomed behaves idiotically- like no other app - you have to zoom out then scroll! If they listen to users as they say, why aren't there links in page view? Please put back the article continuation links so one can read a news story without bumbling and fumbling around. There is a tiny regional newspaper app with a much better interface than this (Recorder from Greenfield MA), so get with it Globe.
  • Great newspaper, great app.

    When people complain it takes a minute or two to download and the New York Times takes seconds, they don't understand I guess that the entire Globe newspaper downloads and every story it then instantly available. With the a Times, each time you click on a story, that story then has to download. I've been reading the e-Globe since it first became available. I lived in Maine now in the White Mountains and I download the entire Globe on my iPad before 5:00 am everyday, it's a great service. I can't believe anyone could honestly criticize the Globe or the app.

    Frequent crashes make it very frustrating to attempt to read the paper. Other newspapers have much better apps
