Introducing The Detroit Free Press eEdition app, where subscribers can read The Detroit Free Press on iPhone and iPad with all the stories, photos and ads shown just as it appears in print. Subscribers can use their current account login to access current and back issues.
This app is almost as bad as the web interface. It's unstable -crashes frequently, even on lates app version and latest iOS; usability is poor because it always expands individual stories when I'm trying to zoom into a page, or the page being displayed slides off the screen - to another page - while trying to slide up or down. Can't copy and paste anything, though that's probably a copyright issue. However, trying to get recipes from the paper is a major PITA! I think I'm about ready to unsubscribe.
Something changed two weeks ago and I now get an error message when I try to log in. Customer service blames Apple. I have cancelled my subscription.
This app has suddenly crashed, it says “there seems to be a problem with your server” I called my internet provider and they told me to contact the app developer. HELP
Whenever I try to open I’m asked if Iwant to use App. Then it asks me if I need to download App. The options given are Cancel. Ok. There is no no option. When I try to open. The App I go through the insane routine again and and again ad infinitum. Don’t waste your time
This app was very good, but in the last few days has stopped working. It's Monday 13 March 16 and it's stuck on last Fridays paper. The previous review said it wasn't working on iOS 10.3, presume that person has a beta version since the current version is 10.2.1 which is what I am running. Attempts to get support just send you to the Freep website, not the developer who is the one to fix this issue.
The app is not working in iOS 10.3.
I am very impressed with how the app works! For months, I've had a subscription but have not read the paper much because of the difficulty of reading it online. Once I downloaded this app, it made reading the paper a breeze. I'm so glad to finally have a way to easily read the paper and take advantage of my subscription again! The size of the print is easily adjustable, and it is easy to go between the newspaper image and the reading view. Searching is also a breeze. Although you can print an article, I wish there was an easy way of saving/clipping an article to a PDF other than taking a screen shot. Although there is a little bit of a learning curve, I'm glad that the app is working well for me.
The app won't even go past the login screen.
The old app worked perfectly. This one freezes, shuts down, doesn't load articles properly. I give it 0 stars. It's really horrendous!!!
I've used a similar app from another Gannett paper, the (Port Huron) Times Herald. It works just fine. This app doesn't work at all. I've never seen an e-edition using this app. I can log in but all I can get is a bad version of the regular app. It is off center and not very navigable.
