I'm fast running out of patience with News Corporation's (Rupert Murdoch) experiment with creating an iPad newspaper. Leaving aside the politics of News Corp. in general, and its editorial page in particular, I've found that The Daily is that rare iPad App indeed: It just doesn't work. For a daily news publication, it fails the most basic test of all: It doesn't actually seem to be capable of delivering daily news updates. Today (Friday, April 1) - I've still got the same headlines, stories, crosswords, etc. that I had on Wednesday. And this is despite a 2-3 minute startup time that promises that "today's" paper is being delivered. And I'm not alone with this complaint: Half the recent reviews on iTunes complain about the same thing. This comes on top of a my experience with the first month or so of The Daily, a time where it regularly, and reliably crashed. It got to the point where you literally couldn't read a single page story without the App unexpectedly quitting. It took three weeks, a a complete uninstall, reinstall, update cycle for them to (sort of) fix that problem (The Daily still crashes, just every 4-5 times I use it, rather than 100% of the time.) In this day and age, I'm utterly amazed that a major worldwide company could actually put out such an utterly dysfunctional piece of software. And I'm a little surprised that Apple approved such a defective App to be sold in their Store. I'm going to give The Daily one week to fix this. If I'm not seeing regular, daily news stories showing up each day before 7.00 am - then this App, and my subscription, will be history. Last Note: To anyone thinking of subscribing to The Daily, whatever you do - do not choose the Annual subscription. Pay for it weekly for the first couple of months. That way, the worst thing that will happen is you'll be out 99 cents - and the frustration and anger of dealing with an App that just doesn't seem to work.
