Reviews

Slow and jumpy

App trying to do way too much, and serving up ads slows down scrolling and reading stories everyday. So frustrating at times I just close out. Too bad since content pretty good. Recently added a new feature - app slows to serve up ads, then freezes and shuts down. Nice.

I love the inky but the app is buggy

The app is pretty, but it crashes all the time and articles take forever to load. Please fix!

Highest quality journalism

It’s a joy and priviledge to read the news presented with true integrety, intelligence, depth and balance.

Crashes more often than not. Frequently fails to load

Takes forever to load an article & can’t cancel online

Update: still haven’t made the app stable. In addition, I wanted to cancel my subscription but then they emailed me and told me that memberships can only be cancelled by a phone call. Uh, what? So I can sign up online but you don’t want to let me cancel online? What are you? A gym? I don’t believe that it’s right when companies do this. I think it’s a little shady. Luckily I used PayPal and have cancelled the billing agreement so I won’t be charged again. I thought “hey, why not support local journalism” except the only problem is that most of the time I get a spinning circle that takes forever to finish spinning. It almost feels like the Philadelphia Inquirer is stuck in the 90’s/00’s. I shouldn’t have to wait so long to read a notification you sent me or just switch to another article from within the app itself. Definitely cancelling my subscription.

The Inquirer has intentionally made it impossible to cancel your subscription

1
This is a serious warning: they will not let you cancel your subscription. There is no way to cancel, other than to call a particular number. Yes, in 2021, there is no way to cancel online.If you manage to get through to a customer service agent, they will tell you that they are not the one that can help you and pass you down the line until you’ve spoken to four or five people. The last person you speak to make claim that they will cancel your subscription, but they will in fact not do so. I have now called the Inquirer to cancel five times. I cannot tell you how many people have claimed to have canceled my digital subscription and yet it is still active. If you subscribe to the Washington Post or the New York Times, you can cancel with a few keystrokes on their website.

Spinning Wheel of Death

1
I can’t make this new app work right. I turned on notifications because I am an avid Inquirer reader and I enjoy breaking news. However, when I tap the notification, only the headline comes up and that spinning wheel that gives you nothing. No article, no nothing, just frustration. I am going to delete it. Sorry guys.

This once great newspaper is nothing like it used to be.

The percentage of articles appearing in the Inquirer seem to be about social issues, race, gender or immigration. I don't read this media source for articles about social engineering. News, politics, sports etc. I’m canceling my subscription like so many of my friends. The anti law enforcement bias/misrepresentation is appalling. It’s no longer the paper that I grew up with.
