This is an incredibly frustrating app that has the ads competing with copy and winning.
Man I remember going out to the end of the drive way early Saturday mornings to grab my grandma her American-Statesman newspaper, I usually went straight for the comics but I am excited they have an app! Always staying up to date on important things!
Smooth. Logical. Yay! The improvements in using the app since the buyout of the Statesman several years ago are dramatic! Easy navigation with ads enough out of the way that you can digest articles without constant worry. The paper has good enough focus on local but not as much investigative content as needed but the app works very well.
Even after setting preferences all I get is high school sports. Also the app makes it nearly impossible to unsubscribe.
When I was on the app I was told that it would 6 months for ¢99 and once I agreed to purchase it charged me $14.99 for ONE MONTH. Don’t believe the pricing pop ups on this app, it’s false.
Very difficult to get info. Miss the ability to download the paper versus looking at dated stories or photos.
A seriously great digital newspaper
Disappointed in this app. After I read each story it takes me back to the top and I have to scroll all the way down. I just read another story that referred to tweets being sent by people and every place where there should have been an image of the tweet being referred to there was an ad. It won't let me scroll through different sections of the paper. I like the version I loaded onto my iPad so much better.....I could even pull up the actual page of the newspaper instead of just these small samples of stories. Come on Statesman...... You are better than this! I know you are.....
I have a subscription. I switched from home delivery after tiring of having the paper thrown somewhere other than near the front door, if at all. Now I’m overseas with a slow connection and despite having the content downloaded, can’t read it because the resolution past page two is so blurry. Additionally, the ap does not recognize my login, which is saved on my device. I’m about out of patience!
I opened this, on 12/4, searched for the title of a section of todays paper and got only headlines of stories that are months old.
