I regularly read the Tribune on my home computer and rely on the app for breaking news alerts. Well, 90% of the alerts are stories that have already run in the print edition. Sorry, that's not "breaking news".
Impossible to read the complete page because of stupid ads at the top of the page. Customer service isn’t smart enough to fix problem and doesn’t care. Just there to fill a chair. Bismarck could sure use a News Paper.
Oftentimes the stories are duplicated in the list of news items, and a quarter of them are simply taken from the AP. The app will do the job if you don't want a subscription, but you're not getting the quality you've come to expect from other free news apps, local or not.
The recent update is terrible. The same stories run in the feed for days on end. Home page has mostly local sports and not much for local news. The prior version of the app was much better than this updated version.
This E addition just plain stinks. I have paid for my subscription and can not read a thing . Who in the world set this stupidity up ? I pay $5.00 a month and am getting nothing but blank pages. Mega Rip off.!!! I really would like to read the obituaries.
This app, when it was newly released, once had prompt updates on local news stories. Every article had to do with local or important national and world news. I must stress important in the last sentence, as the national stories are now mostly sensationalist articles aiming at pulling at the heartstrings of those reading.("dog saves owner in house fire", halfway across the country....not important). The abundance of these type of articles and even double posting of such lame headlines has really taken away from what once was a reliable hub to stay up to date on local news in the Bismarck Mandan area. The ads are more than annoying as well, but that has been a shift many free apps have been selling out for.
