While I'm very excited you guys have finally added an application, some bugs need to be fixed. This app crashes far too often and when I get a push notification it doesn't take me directly to the article mentioned in the notification and more often than not the article is nowhere to be found in the app, I hope there is an update on the way soon.
Gleaner is an invaluable link to events on all levels in Jamaica but app is an eyesore as it lacks modern esthetics and does not fit the screens of larger iPhone models. Time for a major refresh as current app version is over 3 years old. A more modern Gleaner app will attract more readers.
As a member of the diaspora, I had been patiently waiting for this app to make it easier to follow the news back home. Although I routinely used the Gleaner's mobile website, this app has an uncluttered finish which makes it easy to navigate and share. Now if I could get my epaper as easily, it would be perfect.
This app has no intriguing design elements. It's boring, it's stale; welcome to 2009, Gleaner. The ads block parts of the content. The badge icon; why does it keep track of unread stories on the front page. Why can't we modify the sections in the navigation bar (see Music.app). Need the ability to modify font size on main page sections. Swipe on article needs options, like "read".
