The main reason I continue to subscribe is because newspapers and journalism in general is struggling. One of the reasons newspapers are struggling is because of cookie-cutter apps like this one provided by Corporations like Gannet Co. The app layout and navigation is horrible but it’s standard boiler plate from the devs at Gannet Co. Unimaginative, derivative and not at all user friendly. You all realize if you log in using your FaceBook account the company gathers all your data and contacts. So don’t. Use your email and a new password. You are forced to agree to notifications in order to do any sort of meaningful configuration of the news stories. No thanks. I’m not interested in Sports Ball but am forced to wade through endless Sports Ball stories. They have made some improvements. I quit my original subscription due to issues with double billing and the hidden unsubscribe process. Both of these problems have been addressed. So congratulations on getting the basics right?
After iOS 14 the app has trouble loading page views and closes. Sure you just have to reload but it makes reading the paper a struggle. Worked great until now.
The IndyStar is the best source for local news in Indianapolis! The writers are great and the content is super relevant. You simply won’t find coverage for Indy like this anywhere else. The app uses the USA Today platform, which leaves a lot to be desired. If you subscribe from within the app that subscription only work inside the app, so I hope you never read the news on your computer! Additionally the app is littered with ads, often very questionable ads (everything from the bizarre, to the conspiracy theory, to the inappropriately dressed persons). Despite the USA Today garbage, the content from the staff of the IndyStar shines, and you should get a subscription today! Support local journalism!
won’t open since OS 14 update.
Crashes in ios14
After downloading Apple’s most recent IOS 14 update last night, I discovered that the Indy Star app will no longer open on either my iPad, or my iPhone. Please fix, pronto!!
I have been using the app for several months along with subscribing through in-app purchase. I prefer this since it’s easier for me to cancel; no phone calls. The app has been working well for me. Until today. I updated to iOS and iPadOS 14 and now the app closes immediately after tapping to open. This occurs on my iPad and iPhone. I tried tapping on the App Support link and that opens the app which then closes. Hopefully an update is released soon. This is the downside of using in-app purchase; I have no other way of accessing this content.
Crashes on opening. For a subscription I pay for I can’t use it.
If you want to do anything with your account, it may work, or it may not.
Never loads right from search. Can't ever get account page out of a 'do -loop' once I sign in . Zero easy access to subscription options like, suspend my subscription.
