Repeatedly have to reload app. Makes me want to cancel and get a refund.
App constantly crashes.. It’s a great fire starter in the winter.
Didnt look for any small printed section indicating how many free articles you are able to read, before being forced to see a pop up screen with an annual and/or monthly fee! I am local and unfortunately will be deleting this app because of the subscription fee! Its ashame i did enjoy being up to date in my area with crime and stupidity around me!!
Completely worthless, and now they want you to pay for it?
Can’t read any articles in app unless you subscribe! Awful business decision. Now many people and I won’t even have the app. We won’t see the ads that people pay to have in there!
There is a limit to how many articles they 'give' you access to and force a subscription fee if you do not pay. I live locally so I thought it would be a nice way to keep up with the local news. Very unfortunate They chose to charge people for access. Many better news sources in Northeast Ohio than this one. Has a very old-fashioned and conservative approach to all of their new stories.
Site is always crashing. A pain to find anything. Every time they make “improvements” it makes everything worse. No wonder this newspaper is going downhill.
You can't enlarge the font size, the control does nothing. Text is too small to easily read even on a 12" screen. Moving jumping animated ads within stories make it tough to read. Many "stories" are blank, with no text at all. Polls don't work in the app. News is updated very slowly, making many stories over a day old before they hit the app. Pictures are generally huge and pixelated, or cropped in weird ways. Columnists pictures are also huge and very closeup, making them appear distorted etc. Scrolling the stories on the left of the screen is hit and miss...you'll be trying to get to other stories and it will refresh, not keeping you on the story you were trying to read. Doesn't anyone who works at the Rep ever use this app? Adding more info...you now get an ad on launch, and after reading 2 or 3 stories, you're told you've reached your limit of free articles. There are now moving ads in the middle of stories, and ads along the left side disguised to look like stories that launch web sites. This app has become useless.
What wrong your newspaper can not read it better fix it
The only section I read of the paper/use in the app is the Obituaries, so I'm not sure how the rest of the app operates. However, both before and after the update, I'll be cruising along in that section and, bam, it shuts down. So I give up!
