A Terrible change to the e-edition app!
The Olympian has changed the e-edition just recently. A huge downgrade of this product. I use The Olympian app on an iPad. Although one can still see the paper like a print version one cannot enlarge the copy without losing part of the page. And the ads are a constant annoyance. Worst for me, one can no longer access previous editions or download an edition to read offline later when there is no internet access. I called customer service. They were off no assistance. Shane on you McClatchy and The Olympian.
This is a fail. Before, I could read the paper on my I-pad as articles or as a paper. I’m usually chose the print version, and could change size of the comics and print easily. No more, and the ads are totally invasive. Also, comics have been gone twice recently. I am frustrated as well as sad....I miss the local reporting, the local journalists, the hometown feel. And the inclusion of the national scene with the extra section seems to be gone as well. At least go back to the prior ap!
First Saturday Newspaper online only
Not as good as holding a paper in your hands. Also has old, old stories, like reading last weeks paper. Why not try a format which copies the format of the actual newspaper? That would be original. Still attempting to read this “newspaper “. Where are the comics and advice column?What about the crossword? What about this moment in history? I am old-fashioned, I know, but I savor the old newsprint and paper. (I do appreciate the newer inks.) This app does not present things in a way which is close enough to what I enjoy. It is attempting to copy the other news apps, without having enough to offer to be them. Please try another approach if you are determined to do this online thing. You can’t compete with Apple News.

For over a month I’ve tried to read the e edition. I had hoped it would read like a newspaper. Am I doing something wrong? This has many, many pop ups that are incredibly distracting. It is hard to browse in order to find articles which i prefer to read. I am inundated by news emails that I can’t seem to turn off. Every time I unsubscribe I get new emails or push alerts. This has been a very unpleasant experience and I am cancelling
Was supposed to get my first issues of the Olympian on Sunday . That didn’t happen . Have called since than 4 times , because I have not received 1 issue . Just got of the phone again , same old same old . So my review is definitely not flattering . If you want to get a newspaper , you have to go to the store .
Let’s start off with the app, it crashes constantly. Next the articles aren’t for the local area and those that are won’t cover actual problems in Olympia and the surrounding area. Most of their “local” articles are from Tacoma (20 miles away). Google news does a better job of local coverage.
This new app is the worst
The updated app will not allow reading of the newspaper “print” version on an iPad like before. The whole thing is fuzzy and if you try to enlarge it to read an article, it is so pixelated it is unreadable. If you download it, it is sharp but too small to read and you can’t expand it to enlarge it. What a waste.
Where’s the Zero Rating Button?
The recent change to the Olympian app is horrible. Extremely difficult to use on both a iPad and laptop. Tried it on Crome, Edge and Safari with the same results. Considering canceling my service if they don’t get it fixed.
Can’t use the e- edition
Called the help desk because I can’t get the edition to work. The “solution” is I am to be sent a daily email that will allow me to access the e-edition. I hope they can devote some funds to fixing this goofy app.
Very Poor Product
Just cancelled my online subscription. I have lived in Olympia and read our local paper since 1989. The previous e edition worked well, whereas the new version is an ill thought out disaster.
Articles provide more detail, but a very limited selection. I used for a few weeks, but went back to the old e-edition.
Where are the puzzles that I can get on the website, such as crosswords and other puzzles? So I give this app a “meh”
Getting better but...
With our search tool it’s pretty useless in the overall
This is useless. I want to select the pages I want to read. I can’t find the comics page. How do I go back to the normal digital version?
It works for about a week. The won’t let me in. When I try to reset my password it asks me to create a new account.
