What’s happening in Olympia. I used to live there and still have family in the area. I hate that I have to buy a subscription in order to read more than 3 lines of outdated news.
For over a month I’ve tried to read the e edition. I had hoped it would read like a newspaper. Am I doing something wrong? This has many, many pop ups that are incredibly distracting. It is hard to browse in order to find articles which i prefer to read. I am inundated by news emails that I can’t seem to turn off. Every time I unsubscribe I get new emails or push alerts. This has been a very unpleasant experience and I am cancelling
It works for about a week. The won’t let me in. When I try to reset my password it asks me to create a new account.
Not as good as holding a paper in your hands. Also has old, old stories, like reading last weeks paper. Why not try a format which copies the format of the actual newspaper? That would be original. Still attempting to read this “newspaper “. Where are the comics and advice column?What about the crossword? What about this moment in history? I am old-fashioned, I know, but I savor the old newsprint and paper. (I do appreciate the newer inks.) This app does not present things in a way which is close enough to what I enjoy. It is attempting to copy the other news apps, without having enough to offer to be them. Please try another approach if you are determined to do this online thing. You can’t compete with Apple News.

I absolutely hate this ap. It often takes a very long time to load, it closes on its own when you try to move around in it. Not everything can be viewed such as “what’s happening” and cartoons on the editorial page. Ads pop up without being selected. If you down load to read, you cannot enlarge the print. And there’s no way to get out of the down load. The only reason I have kept it is there are no other options for local news. Looking at the other ratings it appears the Olympian is unconcerned with displeasure with the ap. Read to be done!
Called the help desk because I can’t get the edition to work. The “solution” is I am to be sent a daily email that will allow me to access the e-edition. I hope they can devote some funds to fixing this goofy app.
Was supposed to get my first issues of the Olympian on Sunday . That didn’t happen . Have called since than 4 times , because I have not received 1 issue . Just got of the phone again , same old same old . So my review is definitely not flattering . If you want to get a newspaper , you have to go to the store .
The updated app will not allow reading of the newspaper “print” version on an iPad like before. The whole thing is fuzzy and if you try to enlarge it to read an article, it is so pixelated it is unreadable. If you download it, it is sharp but too small to read and you can’t expand it to enlarge it. What a waste.
The previous app worked wonderfully on my iPad. This new system is a constant struggle. PLEASE give us back the old app!
