Long time paid subscriber. I’m truly disappointed in the performance of this app, which crashes regularly upon clicking on a story. I’ve resorted to using the mobile web site, which works quite well. It’s time to rebuild the app and take care of these recurring issues.
You are a major news outlet. You have money. I pay for a subscription and this app works about half the time. Seriously, can you please hire someone who knows what they are doing and start from scratch? - All Minnesotans
I love the Trib, but this app is bad. It won’t load pictures, it crashes, the headline and article are often out of sync, sometimes can't swipe to the next story. Happens on both my iPhone and iPad; I always check to make sure I have the latest update. This app needs serious IT attention.
Wish I could give it -5 stars. I like the Strib, but fix this app! Buggy as heck!
This newspaperIt’s just a shadow of itself of what it once was! it’s gone downhill ever since.CorporateRaiders bought it in the early 2000’s and they spun it off to Glen TaylorWhich again has been a negative! John Cowels will roll in his grave.
The iPhone app has major issues just showing coherent stories. Text, images, and comments frequently out of sync. As in, open a story about crime-de-jour and you’ll see photos from last night’s basketball game, and the comment section will be rants about Trump’s latest policy shift. The latest update now exits the app completely when certain stories are attempted to be viewed.
So many crashes.
Been using the app for over a year. It’s great and I prefer it to the print version. The only reason the app has a bad overall rating is because it has a limit on articles if you don’t have a digital subscription. The digital rate offered through the app is kind of expensive but you should be able to find special promo offers for a digital subscription to the Star Tribune elsewhere.
Constantly crashes when selecting certain articles. The e edition works well, but I often can’t find the article that I was trying to read from the app. Seems like the star tribune should pick a better vendor for their app. Thee are tons of news apps out there. Come on you can do better
Worst app you’ll ever try. Slow, jilted, totally bugged, and this has been true for years. They say they are having problems. Oh really!!!!!!! Not worth the trouble, especially for such a biased newspaper.
