While biased, this used to be a decent source of local news. Now they are locking out viewers after a number of uses. Trying to force them to pay for a subscription. I might even consider that if it did away with all the ad’s, but just not worth it either way. There a lot of other sources for news. Most free.
I’ve had this app for 5+ years it was an easy way to read on local sports and news. Today they locked me out of articles saying to now subscribe and pay. Well I’m good this app isn’t worth paying for was just good enough to keep free. I can find every article somewhere with no problems
Can’t find a specific article I am trying to find. Stuck with the same old headlines.
Once again this morning the Land Values map is like looking through a narrow slit. No way to make it usable. I really miss the old newspaper-look app of a few years ago.
I used to read this site to catch the local ’news’. Unfortunately, the Bee interjects it’s left wing bias into almost every news story. No wonder they are failing and their daily paper is only approximately 6 pages. This paper is garbage. Years ago, although they were always left, I felt they actually tried to provide the news. Unfortunately, now this rag is no better than the National Enquirer.
This newspaper will not last long in the digital age if it can’t improve this app. It is not possible to subscribe to the digital form of the newspaper using the app. You must use a web browser instead. There is no way to log into your account once you’ve subscribed, using the app. A so-called login page under the customer service option does not have a username and password but instead a phone number and address, and is meant only for use by those with a home delivery subscription, even though it doesn’t say that. When you try to comment on an article, it rejects your attempt with a message that you are not a subscriber. I am a subscriber there is no way to tell the app that I am. To comment on an article, you must go through a social networking site to log in. The Bee does not provide a way for its own subsccribers to comment using the App and their Bee account!!! There is no search function. The app works well for reading articles, although the print edition mode is not pleasant to use and I don’t use it. The headings such as top stories, news, and latest news don’t differ very much. These app problems have been present for a year or more without being addressed. This is not a hopeful sign.
As soon as I start clicking on articles to actually read them...every time without fail
This newspaper is a shell of its former self. Once praised for their reporting, this paper is now just a liberal editorial. If it could balance things out and simply report the news, it could call itself a newspaper. It is simply a propaganda for democrat politics. It does a fine job at that, but reporting news is more than that.
The content of this app is not current or to date consistently. Most of the stories are hours sometimes day old other news outlets are faster to post what’s really going on a good portion of what I read on here is stuff I already heard about hours before I see it on here
Very little about The Bee's website or app, either approach, is viable. Touch the arrow on a video (print people too in love with videos) and nothing works. Read a story, finish it, get suckered to another possibly interesting story under Trending, press on it, and again, nothing. The Bee was late to the party in web participation and building its website. Starting on the cheap, it's been retrenching ever since. Hard to navigate, frustrating to use.
