The star had turned into mostly opinion pieces instead of local, breaking news. And even when they do right a news story, it always includes a slant. Just give me the facts and I’ll make up my own mind.
Every time I click on an article the app makes me sign in again. If I sign in on website this doesn’t happen.
What’s with the ADS now in the Online version!!!! Do we have to pay to remove these???
Version 8.0.1 has adds that crop the bottom of the screen. There are already adds in the paper, why make it harder for people with vision challenges to read the paper? The app now frequently locks up and even crashes. The previous version was much better.
Please explain whether the new app of The Star currently has a search or a way to navigate to search for specific sections, articles, editions, etc. I cannot seem to be able to keyword search and navigate to news I want to read! I use an Apple iPad, version 14.4. I recall being able to search using previous versions of the Star app. Thank you.
I like the flexibility of scanning the paper pages quickly and opening the stories I want to read. No need to upload to browser.
Overall the KC Star has a very serviceable newspaper app. One feature that would be nice to add would be the ability to read stories when offline. The Wall Street Journal app, for instance, downloads the top stories in each section and they are available to read even when offline. I travel a lot for work and this would be a nice feature.
Previous versions of the app allowed the user to see a full page on the iPad screen. The revised app limits the zoom out to a half page. The full page view best simulated the look and feel of reading the paper edition. One could quickly scan the page for interesting articles. Now, one needs to scroll up and down on the page before swiping to see the next page. Please restore the ability to see a full page on the screen at once.
Reading the E Edition of the Kansas City star it’s so much easier with the new version of the app.
The app is fine in portrait mode, but crashes any time you accidentally turn your phone enough to switch to landscape mode. Very annoying.
