Needs work

The app generally works OK, but if there’s ever a very popular story you often will not be able to get to it. Often times it is slow to load. Overall just needs to be updated and worked over to make it more efficient, quicker and user-friendly.

Star Tribune Rating

Overall, I’m disappointed in the Star Tribune on line. It doesn’t seem well organized; articles are repeated two or three times as a reader scrolls down the entire site. I also object to the length of time articles remain on the site, sometimes weeks at a time. It feels like the staff leaves them up to compensate for the lack of new news or new coverage. The business section is abysmal: shallow coverage, no long term perspective, most articles remain for multiple weeks (I read the newspaper for current events, and occasionally for long term perspective on issues). I hate the new process on sports articles that require almost a second “loading”, which them starts with an ad. These articles require the reader to be very delicate to avoid triggering other ads. Finally, Patrick Reusse should retire (or be retired). He’s tired, boring, ill tempered, and repetitive. Rereading this, I’m amazed I still subscribe.

Like the coverage. Especially sports

Very dissatisfied with the Strib mobile app!

Very unsatisfying user interface. Many parts of this app need work. Quality of the newspaper is good but the app is very bad. You need to do a lot of research with focus groups to improve the user experience. Unfortunately, if there was an alternative to the Star Tribune in the Twin Cities I would use it and cancel my subscription to the Strib. I wish the app quality was better.

Doesn’t work

Although I am a paid subscriber and can read Strib in a browser, I can’t get this app to go beyond the five introductory screens. The news content never appears. I called tech support and the person didn’t know how to correct the problem. Uninstalling, rebooting reinstalling — none of these worked.

The local news I care about right at my fingertips!

The star tribune app is so great! I love being able to customize my breaking news notifications! Keep up the good work and improvements.

Continued Improvement

Kudos to the Strib team for continuing to improve this app. It is not perfect, but it is so much better than it was even a year ago.

This app requires me to log in multiple times and I still can’t read the articles! It doesn’t search by keyword well and makes it very difficult to find specific articles. Compared to my Washington Post, New York Times, and Detroit Free Press it is the most frustrating and waste of money 🤬 I have a daily delivery subscription and am going to stick to that. This app is not worth the money
By Spikeangelo

Much improved

The issues to do with the app crashing and readability of the digital edition seem to be resolved. The reporting is solid and underrated. Becoming a must have if you live in the region
