In my experience, downloading the e-edition of NR to my iPad has been not good. In either portrait or landscape view, the result is not readable. I now download e-NR on iMac, place in iTunes "Books" app folder. iTunes syncs to iPad and I can read them perfectly. On the iPad open the "Books" and touch PDF to read. I hope NR creates uniform naming of these PDF docs soon. Meantime I just rename them Feb-15-2013 etc.

I am unable to read much text on iPhone because of small type, so haven't even tried. Don't go anywhere without my iPad and my iPhone anyway ;-) this e version and PDF are very satisfactory ways for me to keep up on Mac news. Thanks NR.

I also bought at App Store another PDF viewer: "GoodNotes" $4.95. With it one can take notes and annotate, etc. I think teachers and students use something like it. May be overkill for my needs. We'll see.


Thx, Katesoren, for your comments. In this ever-changing environment, we're constantly trying to find better ways to deliver news and information to you. We look at each platform or device as a potentially different product. The newspaper is not the same as the website. The iPad is not necessarily going to be the same as the iPhone. We want to provide the best user experience for each device.

As I wrote in our blog last week, the new app is an experiment. We're fortunate to have engaging readers like you to push us on.

Again, thank you.
