  • Doesn’t work at all

    By jfcarpenter
    Used to work great. Now after latest upgrade it doesn’t work all. It just hangs after starting and never displays today’s front page. This is very annoying. Obviously this version was not tested very well before it was released.
  • Another step back

    By GRS in 508
    The Globe had finally gotten things right with their previous iteration of the app but the latest release is another step back. On the positive side, it has been available on time and I have had no problems downloading. But I have to close the app and reopen for the new issue to appear. Worst thing is the navigation. I get one chance to jump to a section using the bottom scroll bar - if I try and jump again, the app crashes. Even worse, when I restart the app I am in the same place as when it crashed, and I still can’t jump to another section without crashing, so I have to swipe through page-by-page. Please get this fixed!
  • Worst thing I ever did

    By Theonun
    This app is terrible. I made the mistake of upgrading and this version would not stay on the page, kept disappearing. Use it at your own risk. I’m going back to an earlier version.
  • Worse than before

    By Cyby9
    Even a GPS cannot guide you through this e-paper. There’s no guide to reference so you’re often back to downloading the edition if you hit the wrong icon. And try to find yesterday’s edition: good luck! I’d gladly use the previous version, such as it was.
  • Poor App

    By Dgrahamk
    About half the time I can not receive the latest e-edition. Actually, that is not a surprise. I subscribe to the Washington Post, New York Times, London Times, Financial Times, and Tampa Bay newspapers. None of these have been a problem. The Globe has been a disaster for years.
  • It is cumbersome and it crashes

    By Calisson
    The Boston Globe needs to get a new web development team. The new app is worse than the previous one; it’s more awkward to use and it crashes repeatedly. It does not download automatically, and then once it downloads it has to do "load" before you can actually read it. And then you have to get rid of all the page previews at the bottom, which, if you click on them, sometimes load that page and sometimes make the entire app crash. Fail.
  • Terrible app

    By CT02118
    Unstable, crashes and gets hung up. An embarrassment to the Globe.
  • Bring back old app

    By WEF MA
    Fire whoever is responsible for this disaster. I spend more time trying to navigate than reading. Trying to move to another section causes app to crash.
  • Terrible

    By Rox 007
    This new ap is terrible. Impossible to navigate on my iPad and keeps crashing when I attempt to move to different sections of the paper. Embarrassment for a paper touting itself as “world class”
  • Horrible Update to Globe Epaper

    By billpayinghurts
    Funny how the Boston Globe never publishes a news piece about its own problems—namely how poor its latest Epaper App works or actually doesn’t work. Crashes all the time and terrible UI for navigating. I will not go back to paper so I may just cancel my subscription if this App is allowed to exist in its current form for much longer. How little testing was conducted before it was released? It is shameful to expect readers to be the guinea pigs to field test poorly written and untested software.
