I agree with bible user 2. This app is terrible compared to the one used previously. I loved printing the puzzles but this app prints them so small I can’t even read them. Also, it may be my internet but each page takes several seconds to buffer which takes the joy out of just being able to read the paper. For us older eyed folks, being able to expand the screen was much easier in the older version. This one cuts off the page, instead of letting you just move around. Sorry for the gripe, but please bring back Olive software.
I have enjoyed reading the eEdition for several years because it felt like reading my old paper newspaper. Now it just shows up in a web browser half filled with ads. I think I am pretty much done and not likely to renew my subscription next cycle. I don’t understand why the companies I subscribe to start out with an excellent product and then keep downgrading until I don’t want to use it any more. Sun Herald is not alone in this frustrating category.
I still pay for this newspaper. Home delivery, electronic version and mobile apps. For local news, you know? Except when I click on the local news tab, my so called hometown paper is as likely to show me the latest news about Kim Kardashian or Angelina Jolie as it is anything happening in my home town, or my state, or any adjacent states, or even the entire southeastern U.S. I was proud when this paper won a post-Katrina Pulitzer. Didn't know that would be its grand finale.
I have this app but I didn’t subscribe because along with the app I get email notifications…. However, every story I click into it blocks me from reading it and says I can’t read without a paid subscription to the online paper! This is an app so you guys should add that the app is useless unless you pay for the subscription!
The sun herald has gone down hill tremendously. If any news happens after 5pm it’s not in the next day’s paper. The Braves had a 3pm game and the next day it was reported as a late game. And today (Saturday) I retrieved yesterday’s paper from my driveway. Friday’s paper was delivered on Friday and the again on Saturday. I guess the Sun Herald will be a complete day behind in their delivery. I’m done with this rag.
Sun Herald recently has changed their format and it is absolutely horrible. Not user friendly at all. I have been a subscriber for many years and not until now am I seriously thinking of canceling my subscription. What were you thinking Sun Herald? You certainly weren’t thinking about your loyal subscribers.
This app is great to have! It's like having the local news in my pocket. Don't get me wrong, FB and Twitter are probably better for up to the minute reports but I really enjoy this app. It's a keeper! Keep up the good work Sun Herald and keep improving the app! 👍
If highlighting 10 day old editorials and featuring last week’s sporting news is your concept of up to the minute reporting, then this is the news app for you. Otherwise, the electronic version is becoming as useless as the print version.
Love the ease of using the app for the SunHerald. It allows me to keep up with what is going on in South Mississippi. The reporting is very good. Love the Southern Miss sports coverage by Patrick McGee.
Sun Herald is pure left wing extremism at it’s best. It is free for a hand full of reads then pay per view. Most articles are direct quotes from New York Times and Washington Post. One in five hundred articles are local at best. Nothing worth reading, absolutely nothing worth reading period.
This new version is HORRIBLE!!! I can’t believe this is considered an upgrade, unless I’m in the mood to see the eternal spinning circle. And now have to go to Facebook to read obituaries. Useless app; I’m deleting.
I’ve nearly quit reviewing this ap. There is very little local content. I’ve seen 10X more articles on Kentucky sports teams than Mississippi ones. No one single article on Ole Miss sports in months. Waste of time.
Being a South MS native who now lives in New England, I was very excited to have the app. Yes, it's mediocre and outdated most days, but it was an easy way to keep current on all the local news that I still care about. I was willing to tolerate the lack of attention the app got before, but now you're asking me to pay for it. I'm not subscribing for a full-fledged print newspaper just to have access to a neglected app that only carries a tiny fraction of the news. Hopefully you'll get with the digital age soon and realize that you can't charge full price for a large coffee and only give us a teaspoon-full. For now, you've been deleted. I'll get my news from the WLOX app.
My review title pretty much says it all. The "Breaking News" page is a disarray of random news articles in new discernible patter and with no ability to organize them by date (or any other criteria for that matter). Some of the tabs are redundant listing the same articles as various other tabs. The articles themselves are only updated once a day or so and are only a handful of what the sun herald actually contains. No support for classified ads. No commenting features. Hell, you can't even order a subscription. VERY poorly done aesthetically speaking. Like it was done circa 1990... A shining example if what happens when a newspaper company relies on poorly written cookie cutter apps instead of utilizing local talent to develop there own real app at a fraction of the cost... Stay away from this app! Stick to WLOX' app for your news.
Print PDF keeps crashing. Scroll down to read and pages turn black. Default set to print edition and it always opens up in Live view. Always asking me to log in. Why should an app constantly request that you log in at least 3 times while you try to read the newspaper? And why does digital cost so much when you don't have to print or deliver?
Loved the app because as a 22 year old single mother constantly on the go I was able to keep up with a few local and current events with ease. Now you want to charge me for it when it's not even comparable to the website? And the website is mediocre to begin with so that's really not saying much about your app. So pretty much you're charging me for bare minimal junk? No thanks.
I think it is sad that the app advertises that this is a free app (which it was until 11/14) and now they want us to pay for something advertised as free. That is clearly false advertising. Seniors and disabled people live on a very limited income and do not have the extra money to pay for something advertised as free which is their way to get a lot of the news.
Downloaded the most recent version of your app one week ago. Very informative. But now it won't let me open it asking me to download the most recent version before I can continue. There is no more recent version available then the one I have. Not impressed!!
Would like to see Weather, Comics, Horoscope. Or perhaps these are there and I just haven't figured out how to access them. Any wave off the coast of Africa needs to be mentioned--at least here on the Gulf Coast. SH App is a good start but needs some refinement.
It worked last time I used it a couple months back. When I try opening the app now, it tells me I must upgrade to the latest version at the App Store. It provides a button for this. I click into the App Store but there is no upgrade/update available. So I've deleted the app entirely.
Hoped this was some mistake that Sun Herald would correct They don't get it. I can get my news from lots of sources. This was only one. I cancelled print subscription a year ago. Now I am deleting the app rather than take out a new subscription.
App recently added a noisy ad containing very loud slot machine type noises. Only way to turn it off is to close the app. Makes using the app difficult when reading in quiet situations (waiting rooms, bedrooms, etc.)
I've been waiting for a year to see an iPad version of this app, no luck. Now it's been updated, not to include iPad support but just to require a paid subscription. As with the printed version of the paper it's just not worth the money you want.
On opening app, the screen width auto adjust forces the font to exceed the width of the screen, forcing each line to be read by swiping back and forth. Changing font maintains the same screen width with just different fonts.
