Between the lack of a search feature to the plethora of pop up ads, this is just a totally inferior newspaper app. You also cannot forward an article, a major pleasure of a newspaper. The Hersld really has become a tabloid.
Worst app ever. Hard to maneuver. They make it very hard to copy and share an article. News coverage of local events abysmal.
It’s not engaging. Compare to Washington Post which is fabulous where you can scroll through stories with lots of photos.
And so disappointed that it’s so unfriendly to use. Can’t you mimic the papers who make their apps more user friendly? The eversion is one issue important to me. It is a nice try though. But only that.
AND I HAVE A PAID SUBSCRIPTION!! Very sad...
I don’t understand how the Miami Herald says they’re continually updating their app, but the functionality goes down. There is no search function. If you try to share a story, a general link to the home page is sent. There is nowhere to sign up for newsletters. The news is hardly ever updated. I could go on. It’s shameful that such a large metropolitan area as Miami doesn’t have a major newspaper with a useable app OR website for that matter.
This review regards the e-edition (looks like the real newspaper) on 2/18/20. The paper does NOT come up at all. I tried on 2 different devices. I had planned not to renew when my subscription came up for renewal 2 months ago but sadly did not follow through. McClatchy is now in bankruptcy so I guess I should kiss that annual renewal fee goodbye. 😡😡😡
Since this new app appeared, I can no longer enjoy my Herald digital subscription. Pages freeze up constantly. After being a faithful reader of the Herald for over 50 years I will miss it, as I’m about to cancel due to the frustration of using this app. The former app worked just fine. Why was it changed?
IS ANYONE AT THE MIAMI HERALD EVEN LISTENING? I wrote this review in December and the app has even gotten worse since then. Today, I had to close it out three times because I couldn’t get past the second page. Finally, I got a page or two farther and tried to read an article, but it locked up again. In comparison, the Sun Sentinel app works like a million bucks, so that will be my hometown paper from now on. What does it take to get them to fix this or acknowledge that they’re even working on it? From December: I have been reading the Miami Herald for 35 years, moved from the actual paper to online some years ago and always liked the experience. Since this last app change a few months ago, my experience is the worst I’ve ever had ON ANY APP! I don’t understand why they chose this unless it was to save money. The app locks up and I have to start over, it won’t bring up many of the articles when tapped on (must be to save money there), and often when I try to enlarge those articles, it goes off kilter and I can’t read the page. One of the things I hate the most is that I can no longer email an article to someone that I think would be interested in that topic. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve considered dumping the paper, but this has always been my go-to paper in South Florida. I also read the Sun Sentinel and used to think their app was basic compared to the MH, but now their app is far superior. PLEASE go back to the old app!
I subscribe to the e-edition of 6 different newspapers. The Herald’s version is extremely user unfriendly and the “improvements” made things worse not better. It is extremely unstable and there are always difficulties in downloading. I must sign in each time with my user name and password. Everyone associated with it should be fired and anyone who hired them should also be fired. It is a complete embarrassment to the Herald.
