    I pay for a subscription and I still get ads on this app. The mobile site of the Sun has a better layout, easier to navigate and see all types of stories, and no ads. Why would I use this app?

    Rarely provides content. It starts up then hangs there and doesn't even provide headlines. I have stopped the app and cleared the cache, restarted my phone and problem persists. Very disappointing since the paper charged 10.00 per month to access their content. And that is just for digital only. Then to have an app that is dysfunctional is a major negative....

    Great when it works, I have to remove it once a month and then install again, it gets stuck on refreshing.

    I have a paid subscription, I don't appreciate the pop-up ads.
