App is too sensitive to use.

This app used to work better. Something happened in the last couple months to make it very frustrating to even use. It opens up articles that you don’t even click on and is extremely slow.

Slow & kills phone

This app is so simple yet so poorly built - it’s really unusable. You can’t even scroll without significant lag and causes the phone to start overheating. I end up going to other news sources and will probably end my subscription since I can’t even read an article.

Utterly unusable

After about a minute of use the app gets jerky to the touch and it becomes unusable. The problem has been around for months yet they don’t fix it. When I complained, their fix was to read the articles in a browser. Then why even have an app?

New version keeps crashing

I appreciate that the performance issues were resolved in the latest version but this version keeps crashing when opening articles. Please fix.

Still terrible

The Strib is still behind the curve. How is it possible to release an App that doesn’t work? The dirty Strib has no problem taking our money!

The app is soooo slow. And the stories so repetitive.

I love the idea of quick access to the paper. But lately the app is very slow. It’s almost like scrolling through glue. No other app acts similarly. I am also surprised at how often the same article will appear 2 or three times as you scroll down. It is much less user friendly than apps for other papers like the WashPo or NY Times.

The fox came through!

You get an updated review. The update that was just issued seems to work to eliminate the freezing, scrolling and awful performance. It took a long time, but thank you. Let’s see if it holds.

Strib, please fix this app! It is buggy, choppy, and irritating.

Unusable in 2020

Used to like this app but now (as many others have said) it is unbearable. Very difficult to scroll through a single story (locks up, scrolling is very jerky). It might have to do with a new ad format they put in which is ironic for people that pay for a subscription. I’m cancelling my subscription after being a subscriber for 8 years.

Latest update is awful

First screen is great then the more you scroll the worse it gets...slow, choppy and unresponsive. Also...why can’t the date of the front page (or many articles) be updated. I’d like to know if my news has refreshed or if I am reading something from days ago. MN has great tech better with this app.
