I’ve been using this app for two months now and have to reinstall it every 4-5 days. The system errors out, even with a paid subscription, and says the maximum number of free articles have been read. Unfortunately there’s not another reliable source for local news, so I put up with it. Hopefully it will be upgraded/fixed soon.
The older version of the app was easier to use, though it was still not user friendly. They switched to this and made everything harder to find, ads are constantly popping up in the way of reading articles. I finally had to delete the app when it said I had to pay to read obituaries! With all the ad pop ups, I can’t believe we’d have to pay to read something you can read everywhere else for free. No wonder this paper is losing customers...I’d give it 0 stars if I could.
I have been using the old GoErie app for years. Granted, it was little more than a PDF of the print edition - but it worked well and was easy to use. This new app is poorly organized - and works terribly. While reading an article, the app will suddenly skip around while inserting ads - causing me to lose my place in the article. The same happens in the menu on the left - it can be nearly impossible to keep my place as I scan the obits, for example. I am never completely confident that I have seen all of the new articles for the day - since the articles seem to be organized somewhat randomly. I live in Erie, but am away traveling nearly half the time - so I rely on the app for news from home. But I am about to give up and just switch to googling local news. I’m not happy about that at all - but at least it is stable and doesn’t cause me to lose my place. GoErie - please return to the old app while you fix this one - and please consider how important it is to give your readers a good experience and make them confident in their local paper.
This has to be one of the very few local news apps that will not allow you to view the obituaries without paying for a monthly fee. The previous family that owned this newspaper must be rolling over in their graves.
Their e-Edition works fine but this product is the worst. Poor technical service. It bounces you out several times per day and makes it nearly impossible to login sometimes. No other company has such poor technology for a pay wall and non-existent tech support.
They recently changed the app. You need to log in/subscribe to the newspaper now.
