Takes a while to get used to it, but it works. Nice to have multiple ways to read your online newspaper but we are quite happy to have this. One issue: the “offline” warning pops up in just about every session. Maybe it is because we are accessing this via the VPN, or maybe it is because our ISP idles down if you have been reading a long article without changing the page. However, we seldom have any problem seeing the content, so mostly a moot point.
It's a fine app: fast and uncomplicated. Only complaint is it's permanently a print-edition layout. I would like a simple list of headlines (similar to NYT, WaPo, WSJ) so you can scan/ scroll the stories and click into the ones you want, rather than swipe through all the pages of the print edition. But that's a fairly minor issue.
I’ve been a subscriber to the DC for over 30 years. Cannot imagine life being with out it. The only problem I had before the app was reliable delivery. The app changed all of that. It’s perfect! Once or twice a year I have to email customer service to resend the paper because of WiFi problems and they always do promptly. Very happy having the Daily Camera as my main news provider.
I've always been able to go back through previous editions of the Daily Camera. The latest version of the app will not let me look at all previous editions, unless I've downloaded them. This is extremely short-sighted. When I received the hardcopy version, I would keep old editions around for quite a while, so that, when I had time, I could go back through and look at different articles. I often didn't have time to look at the paper, the day it came. I'm very disappointed in the new app.
I just started using the app and think it's great so far. I went back to look at the reviews to see why it only had 2 stars and it quickly became obvious. Reviews prior to the latest major update are basically irrelevant. Reviews based on someone's dislike of the publisher are irrelevant. Reviews based on the perception of bias are irrelevant. We're reviewing the app here, and the app works great.
Easy to use app. Shows paper in page mode, click on to read article. When reading the side line articles, there needs to be better differentiation between stories. While they’re clear on the page view, the breaks get lost in the reading view.
So much better than a physical paper! Yet, exactly like one, photo realistic. Lots of features, like links to continued-on-page -X, the ability to read previous editions, an electronic section index, easy page flipping, zoom in & out, and so much more. Plus, no wasted papers every day, and it’s very inexpensive. There's not much reason left to read the physical paper.
I’ve been reading a daily camera for the past 54 years. I’m proud to support local reporting for as long as it exists . This app works best on an iPad, but I’ve referenced it through my iPhone as well.I like the option of reading it like a paper or clicking on an article and having it fill the screen
In pandemic times, I’m grateful to know that local news staff are covering the stories that impact my life. With this app I don’t have to worry about finding my morning paper outside under the snow, or cutting down trees for a one-time read. After four years of reading online, I can attest that the app is 99% reliable.
Getting the paper on my iPad is great! I live with a rural mailbox so having the paper with my morning coffee in my slippers is a luxury. Having the weather and the local news right at my fingertips is so important and the only way to start my day!
On my ipad or on my pc I can read it easily, navigate quickly. I am a paid subscriber, so the inserted advertisements are a bit of a disappointment. Less reliance on court room news, police reports, and more ... in person reporting?... would be awesome, but I’m not holding my breath.
The navigation is easy and the content is laid out like the print version. Occasional crash is why I don’t give it 5 stars. My OS stays up to date automatically so it may be that the developers are a step behind the overzealous update schedule at apple
This app is a reasonable way to read the paper if traveling away from physical paper, but… the type setting is horrible and every time you bring up the app it takes forever and doesn’t maintain your position.
I thought I’d miss my lifelong daily routine of facing my driveway in any weather to get a potentially soggy newspaper and then spreading it out on my table to devour but I don’t. I love reading the paper on my iPad. So much easier.
The new version of this app eliminated the navigation sidebar. Ads pop up every time I touch the screen. And I can’t access my account info online. Every time the Daily Camera offers a new r-edition version, quality goes down, just like the content.
