This app is awful. This app does the reporters such a disservice. Miami Herald is one of the best newspapers and this app is so dysfunctional. Get it together app authors.
I am a long time subscriber, recently the app has added commercials mandatory to hear after every couple of stories read or before viewing video content. This is torture to the user especially when the only commercial repeatedly played is for NBC 6, you will be forced to endure the same commercial a dozen times to read the daily edition, and guess what the next day it starts all over again, this has ruined the app, hopefully the rocket scientist who added it will realize how bad he’s alienating readers
Paying for it but not having access
Two thumbs down
Even with a paid subscription this “app” (it’s really just a link to a web site) requires entry of username and password every time. It Also requires “I’m not a robot” image matching 2-3 times a week. Once credentials are accepted the user interface is just awful. There are never-ending bugs and glitches that make for a frustrating experience. Although the function seems to exist, I’ve not yet been able to download the entire “paper” to read offline. On a positive note, there is so little original content that it doesn’t take too much time to deal with the quirky interface.
If I could leave no stars, I would absolutely do so. This app is horrible. When I read my newspaper and I accidentally pressed one of the ads I am unable to get it off of my screen. I have to shut down my whole tablet just to get the newspaper back up. It’s impossible to get back to the newspaper to read it. The ad has no close button. Terrible. Very inconvenient. This app needs to be reworked. Too many glitches.
I cannot get the Extra section that I loved it. I have been a subscriber for decades; but, I intend to cancel my subscription as soon as possible. Benny Fernandez
It should be simple to search for information but they make it difficult. They offer very limited information. I don’t need to work this hard to get my local news. Trying Sun Sentinel next. Unfortunately The Herald will not survive if they waste their customers’ time like this. Too bad for the employees except for the ones who make decisions to offer this crappy product!
It was pretty bad before, but now it’s just another news site, since I don’t have my daily newspaper. I guess it’s time to do away with the Herald since the news are available in social media for free.
The loud, intrusive audio commercials (mostly political these days) can not be muted or even stopped on my iPad. Clicking on the “X” to exit the commercial has no effect. Who designed this mess?
