Won’t open after new update

App crashes immediately after opening after latest iPad update.

App Not Working

I enjoy this APP however after the last update the app won’t open on my iPhone. I attempted to reload it and have had no luck even with a digital subscription.

Not great

New app is not an improvement. They removed half the sections, such as ”politics”.

Now Requires a Subscription

I was fine with the excessive ads supporting this app in the past years I’ve been using it, but now they are charging $15/month to read articles. No thanks, definitely not worth it.

Good but

I actually like Pennlive and would give them a five. I just don’t like the idea of having to be continually coerced/bombarded into buying a subscription. They should sell a subscription when you download it.

App keeps asking to subscribe

I have a valid subscription. I can’t view articles because it keeps asking me to subscribe. I have restored purchases and verified I have a subscription and still doesn’t work. Terrible app right now.

It’s a news app

It really doesn’t do anything special. It’s a news app and it works pretty well.

I have used this app for many years and they just started charging 15$ a month to look at any articles. I liked the news from here but not willing to pay that so it is now deleted

Now a junk app

This app use to be free but with latest updates they want paid. I don’t feel your big enough for payment and why I’m deleting your app. You have advertisements all over app now which I left go but guess they don’t pay your bills. I’ll stay with a real news source outside you since want to charge.

Totally useless

Pennlive wants $15/month for the crap they post? The least they could do is allow free access to the obituaries like the LDNews does. Otherwise, don’t bother downloading. Just go to Google and get it for free.
