No longer downloads to Xperia Arc. Tried everything. Great content, persistently unrealiable app.

Does not work for print subscribers I'm a print subscriber so I made an account and typed in my code and it worked fine. The next time I opened the app, I couldn't access anything so I logged out. When I logged back in, it said my code was invalid. Made another account a few weeks later and the same thing happened. Until this bug is fixed, this app is useless to me.

Needs orientation lock! The content itself is fantastic, and the addition of audio is great, but the older versions of the app had a screen orientation lock option that made it far easier to read in bed. If it rotates to landscape and back your place in an article is lost, which is a bit of a pain when you're reading an in-depth leader. That said, everything else works well, aside from it taking a while to recognize that new issues are available.

Terrible audio support No speed up options and sometimes clips the end of articles.
