I appreciate the local news stories, but I was disappointed when a paid subscription does not remove the ads. The choice of advertisements is especially annoying, reminds me of internet clickbait.
Lousy on a good day…. Rather than provide news, content is mostly prep sports and Opinion submissions. Staying logged in can be a royal pain, as well.
The Ventura County Star fraudulently renewed my subscription without consent or authorization. My promotional subscription expired in March 2022 and I made sure auto subscription was off. Then, in December 2022, they charged my iTunes account 9.99 without my consent or desire to subscribe. I’ve reached out to them numerous times with regard and they are totally ignoring my requests for cancellation and refund. Such a total fraud! I’m contacting the BBB with this matter as I am not going to let this go as they may hope.
The app is so easy to use. I love that you can click on specific articles and forward them to someone else who might be interested. Even the comic strips! Always on my phone by around 4am, so can access today’s paper as soon as I wake up. Highly recommend.
My university newspaper was infinitely better than the Star. you need to lower your advertising rates so that you can steal the revenue from the throwaways.You will make a profit… also, All of your reporters need to read the AP stylebook
Awful app. They don’t even show the current days newspaper. They just show stories. The most frustrating app I have ever tried to log into. No wonder this newspaper is going broke.
Why are there two different apps for this local newspaper? My husband was talking about an article he read yesterday, but I was unable to find it in the relevant section or with the almost completely useless search function, no matter what terms I tried. When he sent me a link, I had to install the other app, then wade through images of the pages until I found the headline. It makes no sense at all! We have been subscribers for over 40 years, but I almost never look at the paper any more because it makes me angry and sad trying to navigate the interface.
