The latest fun with the app is the weather widget not working. For weeks now it’s indicated “72 and Sunny”. I don’t know when the last time this app was updated. There are still issues with links and notifications navigating you to the browser and not the app, where you need to log in. By far the worst app I maintain a PAID subscription to!
I subscribe and only read online. The app won’t load articles, won’t swipe and is a source of never ending frustration. I’ve noticed that I, almost always, close the app after a few minutes because it’s so bad. I’m looking at other sources of local news and will cancel my subscription because the app is so bad and they seem to be unwilling to improve it. Do they not read the reviews of their app? Do they not look at the ratings on the app in the App Store?
Slow to load when it loads. Won’t even load the last few days. App should not even be offered until it is improved a bunch.
As of the last couple days the home page is not loading!
I’d rate Zero if I could. The home page in the app on iOS 14.7.1 does not load. Full stop. Little sunburst just hangs out. It’s been days. I’ve powered down. I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled. Nada. This. Is. Dumb. Do better.
This app could use significant improvement. Viewing photos in news stories, especially if on a phone/smaller screen (iphone 11) is a frustrating experience. Photos cannot be zoomed in and if you rotate your phone to try and see them better, they get cut off by the margins of the screen. Also, you cannot highlight a word and use the phone’s built in ‘look up’/dictionary feature. These are basic features which news sites are expected to have. The app frequently crashes when you select an article to read.
This app has been freezing up for weeks. Now it will no longer even open on an iPad. If there were a half-star negative review, this neglected app would qualify.
The StarTribune should be ashamed at releasing this app which crashes, often doesn’t load, and basically puts a damper on what otherwise is great journalism. How about spending a few dollars to fix it?
Very frustrating when home page will not open, stuttering when navigating between pages/articles. Individual stories load very slowly, sometimes freezing. Very sad that this app has bot been updated in 10 months to fix some of the bugs. Apparently, StarTrib management has little commitment of its online subscribers!
