Disturbing advertising.
I receive the digital version of the ADN. I was up north for the last month out of internet contact. When I came back very offensive ads were showing up on my ADN feed. These ads were advertising some kind of gaming app with a blow up doll in a rather disgusting position. I tried to delete the adds which some advertisers allow you to do but instead it took me to their web page. I called the ADN to complain. Nothing had been done about the offensive ad as of yesterday. I do not consider myself easily offended. We do not have young people in our home. No one was in our home while we were away. Hopefully the ADN will remove these offensive & disrespectful ads & do a better job of screening who & what they allow to be run as ads in their digital copy.

Easy to read online!
I enjoy reading the E edition which looks the same as the print edition. The app is easy to use. I lived in Alaska for 30 years but moved Outside for healthcare reasons. I love keeping up with the Alaska News. I read it it cover to cover every day (except Saturday when it is not published). I enjoy that many of the articles are from the Washington Post so I feel like I am getting to read both papers. I love the outdoor articles on Sundays and the book review of Alaska authors. I recommend it especially if the print edition is not available and/or you want to save paper.

For many years said I wouldn’t give up my beloved print copy of the morning paper. After my robe it was the first thing I “put on” in the morning. But as you perfected this medium, and as my eyes changed, and as I got more interested in the puzzle page, and began to leave behind much of the dreary articles I fell in love with this e-version. I can make large copies of the puzzles for both me and my wife. And i can forward some of your more interesting articles to family members out of state. Plus you folks do a great job of keeping it very user friendly.

Review of software
I was reluctant to drop my door delivery of the ADN for a variety of reasons. I liked having the news paper to read, and I did not want to deal with on-line issues because I am elderly and have relatively little patience with this cyber world. However, I was traveling and wanted to keep up with Anchorage news. So I logged on. Whoever designed the software for the ADN did so with his/her grandmother in mind. It is slick. It is easy. It is portable. My iPad goes every where with me, and now so does the ADN!

As Great as Ever
I have lived in Anchorage a few times over the years and always enjoyed the Anchorage Daily News (ADN) paper. I recently moved back again and wanted to get the paper again. I decided to go with the internet version and the digital version is Great. Like reading the paper version without the paper. Love the coverage of local, statewide, national and international news. Also enjoy the Sunday comics still as great as ever. Keep up the great work and I will keep reading!!

Like having the real paper
I love that I can look at the paper in its print form on the screen. I live outside the delivery area so this is the only way I can see the paper. It has a beginning and end, unlike the endless news scrolls, and I get the comics to add some levity to all the bad news. I love ADN and this app is perfect if you choose to look at the print version. The “live news” version I completely avoid. Hate that with all the adds and such.

While you can’t wrap fish with the electric version of the paper, the quality of the journalism is outstanding and easy to read. It is our only access to current events and issues that is not biased, basically propaganda. We long for the day when both papers clearly separated their factual reporting from the opinion page.

Best of both worlds
I enjoy reading the ADN in a traditional newspaper layout. And they’ve improved the app over time to make articles more readable when tapped on. If I want breaking/current news before the paper is printed, I have that option too. No problems navigating either. Once in a great while, when I click on an article in paper layout, it doesn’t fully load and I have to close it and do it again. All fixed. They only problem I’ve encountered.

Alaska Reporting
Not just Anchorage, but statewide coverage. News of interest to the circumpolar regions and not necessarily lower 48. With all their financial troubles, it's amazing this state wide paper still can pay for good reporting. Least we can do is support it through this app. Buy a digital subscription. Otherwise, local news will be buried and important issues hidden or overlooked. The app itself functions as it should, at least on the iOS platform.

What a disaster for visually impaired people
What a disaster for visually impaired people even after writing to them in email and annoucing the issue noone ever got back or addressed the issue, as a blind person using Voice Over is no way of getting around some apps are bad but this one tops it all. Cannot navigate through the menu's words and buttons arent not labeled and are unpronouncable. Then the annoying notification you get every day after midnight saying the news is available for. Today like we dont knowits a new day .. sorry but no good words for this app bad rating, dont use it if you depend on accissibility , mak

This is my hometown newspaper!
Imagine how happy I am to have ADN as my local, hometown newspaper! Alaska is a state like no other and we need a high quality paper that supports first rate news gathering. ADN is that paper, and our family supports local news gathered by dedicated professionals. Thank you, ADN. Support YOUR local news. And yes, the app is great, too.

Fits my reading style
I subscribe to three local news ‘papers’ (ADN, TST, NYT) and Apple News; this is my favorite iOS news app. I like to scan whole pages to visualize story layout, pictures, and content before diving in to read. The app is stable and loads content quickly, even when traveling in areas with reduced bandwidth. I recommend the Seattle Times switch to this app…theirs is terrible.

Anchorage daily news.
As a lifelong Alaskan,I love our newspaper the Anchorage Daily News. They continue to have great news stories .This paper owned by a moderate Republican Alaskan family , is always fair in presenting both sides of an issue. I appreciate this. Thank you for keeping me up to date on our Great land State.

Digital ADN
Soooo much better than the hard copy version! No more looking for my paper, receiving it wet or call(s) to customer service. I enjoy doing the puzzles so I simply print them (without having to dry the pages prior to use). AND the cost is so much less.

Love my ADN
I love reading the paper everyday and appreciate your efforts to be a three time Pulitzer Prize winning paper! Thank you for accurate and fair reporting. When I hear other people calling the ADN a”liberal Rag” it chaps my hide and I proudly respond with “It’s a 3 time winning Pulitzer Prize winning Rag!” Thank you!

New online format
While I remain a loyal ADN reader, I wanted to give my two cents on the new format. It’s tough to read the article titles imposed over photographs - even with the white font and drop shadow. They would be clearer to read either above or below the featured photos. Compared to the old format, it feels too busy.

Great notifications
Good app to get full paper or read single stories based on notifications - and then get a list of other top stories. I like the ADN’s mix of local news and news from other sources.

Awesome Newspaper!
I enjoy traveling to Alaska from Florida a couple of times a year. I get ePapers from both Orlando and Anchorage. Do to both papers time zone differences and printings deadlines, I get more updated stories in the ANC Daily news than my local Orlando paper. Keep up the good work! JW Orlando, FL

Easy article viewing but poor interface
I like reading ADN articles on the app, but accessing articles that are more than just a couple days old is difficult. The search function only prioritizes very recent material, and i often want to follow up on information while i’m reading stories.

Enjoyable but with an irritant
I enjoy the app but when in Live News, after reading an article, the app returns to the top of the list of articles. That causes me to have to swipe back down to select the next article. This is not a major issue but it is an irritant.

Balanced News
ADN and the affiliated Arctic Sounder keep me up to date on the news in that corner of our world so vastly different than here in Orlando, Florida. I like to be able to follow stories that impact my family and loved ones in Alaska.

Good feed
The layout of the app is intuitive and easy to scroll through articles of interest. Only downside is that you can’t pinch zoom any photos. After some initial difficulties logging in with the phone app versus the web access it appears to be working well.

ADN app
I really like the new app. Very smooth reading. No going back to Icon frequently and blanking out. My only complaint is I have to go to app and open daily. Then I have to select the e-edition. Not a problem really just slightly annoying. I would prefer to tap the icon and go directly to the e-edition. Thanks, Carol Hoyt
