While I subscribed several versions ago and canceled it because the app is just beyond awful, it seems to been some improvements but still in an enormous amount of problems. I subscribe to several other digital papers and have nowhere near the issues that I have this paper.
I was a subscriber yet still received constant pleas to subscribe. There are intrusive ads which take away from the usage of this app. It got to be so bad that I cancelled. Why can’t they created app which recognizes and remembers my login so this doesn’t happen?
It could be better. Not enough sports. Minimal stocks/business and too many AP stories because not enough local reporters.
This is the second time I signed up for the courant , which I consider to be a decent newspaper. The first time I was unable to access much of anything so I cancelled. This morning it said one price then I was billed another.
I am grateful for some of your amazing reporters who are not afraid to ask questions . You need more people of color as reporters and more positive stories of people of color .
... unless what you’re looking for happens to be right in front of you. I get better results searching their Facebook page. They used to have a clickable front page which was great, but the only way to access the rest of the paper now is a category bar at the top of the page. So there’s literally no way to just read the paper from front to back. The search function is unusable. Results come up with a photo (!) and a short headline but no date which is completely worthless. For example, there was an update on an accident in Cheshire two days ago that killed a child. When I tried to find the original article in the search bar even the article I was reading didn’t come up when I typed in “Cheshire”. It’s like trying to find a book in the library with no lights on. Frustrating and awful.
This is a not so great app from a “local newspaper” that operates out of the Philippines and dumps garbage in your driveway despite repeated requests to stop. Paying to subscribe to this app causes blight in my neighborhood. Just say no to the Hartford Courant. Everything must end sooner or later and it’s their time
It keeps asking me to subscribe and I’m already subscribed
Slow page updates, constant nagging to subscribe, even though I am a subscriber and have a logged in session in the app. Publication is not properly formatted for digital consumption within the app and many articles are displayed as web pages instead of app content. One of the worst digital publication implementations I’ve seen.
This is a good newspaper burdened by an opaque and deceptive subscription policy. The deal is you sign up at a highly discounted rate and then some months later (not stipulated) your credit card is suddenly charged a significantly higher amount. You call customer service (Phillipines, I think) and they knock down your rate for a few months and the same process is repeated. Nowhere is it possible to find a clear list of rates or any indication of the duration of the rate agreement. So, you are completely at their mercy regarding rate increases and they do not notify you when they increase. The editorial staff would be horrified that this is going on. Seems highly unethical, I think.
