  • Just silly.

    If I wanted to read the paper I’d get the paper. Clumsy and ridiculous. Terrible app. See the NYT.
  • Easier and a little better

    I like the new format but may be hard to understand for some. I scroll thru the articles then open the one I am reading. An improvement.
  • Thank you!

    From a long time reader (moved to Boston in the 80's) - took a little while, but the latest app update addressed all the issues that I'd had complaints about - I'm back to enjoying the experience of "curling up with the paper" - thank you very much!
  • An embarrassment

    “Words can't describe just how bad this app is. Downloads get hung up so that one can be waiting days for issues that never show up. The Globe should be embarrassed that it's name is associated with this piece of junk. Don't buy it.” I wrote the above review several years ago and have been assured by the Globe that the app will be improved. Now, two years later, nothing has changed, and it’s still a pig. More often than not, the paper’s already slow down-load never finishes, and I say the hell with it, and never get to read the paper. How the Globe allows this to happen is incomprehensible. Ok, it’s September, 2018, two years after I wrote the above reviews. The new app is out, and I find it much improved. In fact, I’m now reading the Globe again. The only downside is a somewhat inconsistent page turning when I swipe left, but that may be my technique. It took a while but the Globe May have mended its ways.
  • Pls adjust spacing in top navigation

    There’s all that room across the top, yet the icons are grouped together, making it far too easy to hit the wrong icon. Do that and this will be a real improvement over the last version. Though I will never understand why you don’t let readers jump from the front page to the inside page to follow a story. Instead who have to go to that one page UI. Following links seems a natural online viewing mode that you could mimic in this app.
  • Awesome update

    The new redesign is visually pleasing and makes it easy to access the globe’s articles. It’s now my favorite news app!

    The recent update of the online version of the Globe is pathetic. It had made the downloading and reading the paper more complicated and time consuming than it was before. For the most expensive paper around they should have done a much better job than what they did. I downloaded the San Jose Mercury News in about 4 minutes this morning and the Globe took a couple of hours on the same internet. And even when it has been downloaded you still have to redownload each page to read it. I would and should have given a Zero or a negative rating it is so ridiculous.
