Good paper, good format for the most part
The Gazette-Mail is one of the best local newspapers in the whole country. Other than the news section, which tends to make me open some stories I don't want to read just to get into the news, I like the format.

Great Newspaper
Been reading Gazette-Mail all my life, in fact learned to read from the Sunday comics. They were two full pages, front and back. Now, read online, 400 miles away. Like an old friend every morning with coffee.

5 years ago, this is a bogus ruse
Smiles and frowns
I think The Charleston Gazette/mail is one of the best actual news papers I have read. I subscribe to the paper mainly for the comics and puzzles and crosswords. I was very disappointed today to find fewer comics and no puzzles or crosswords. If this is a permanent reduction then I will cancel my subscription.

Poor on IPad
While the newspaper is good, the app design is not. It will not “remember” my login credentials, and the login screen itself will not work without clearing cookies and browser history. It not only takes extra steps every day just to view the paper, but also results in my having losing my browser history for everything else. The previous app version worked MUCH better.

Sad to see the change
I’ve had this app for years, almost since they first brought it out. Now the changes hit and it’s harder than ever to use and only certain stories can be accessed without a membership. I delivered this newspaper 30 years ago and now I can’t read it anymore. This was probably the first app I ever had and I’m deleting it. What a disappointment.

Worst App ever
This is absolutely the worst app that the Chas Gazette has had, the constant clearing of the website data and/or deleting the app then reinstalling almost on a weekly basis is absolutely ridiculous! Is there any new developments to update or replace? They need an app that works order to retain the online customers. If nothing is done, I will cancel my subscription.

Too Liberal
Too many reprints from that liberal rag, the Washington Post. I would think more balanced coverage would increase sales, but it appears the purchasers have some sort of financial death wish and refuse to budge. Last time I checked, WV leans conservative while the Gazette-Mail continues to accelerate its demise.

Recent changes
Has previously been a reliable, quick source for local news. Recently the pop-up ads make it impossible to make it through even one full sentence. Pretty sad.

Major positive changes @ Gazette
Over the last three year, lot of progress and movement into current format and editors, especially Sports dept. From Jack B, to Chuck McG, to now Derek Redd, good (sometimes great) articles and increasing fairness to all collegiate schools in the state. Fair and balanced reporting is where we want the paper to be.

Nonstop pop up ads
This used to be a great app, that’s no longer the case. The pop up ads make it almost impossible to get through an article.

Do not like the updated App
There are two glaring issues with this app. First, since the update the app will freeze and close without any apparent cause. It was more stable before the attempt to add additional images for stories without scene pictures. Second, the content of the app is not updated frequently. There may be one or two articles added to yesterday's news or random national/world news filling up the rest of the page. I know that this app is free but there are plenty of stories that are happening around us. The articles often come from the Associated Press. It would be nice if they could provide a full page of current, local, news daily.

Love these Highlights of Hometown Paper
The Charleston, WV Gazette-Mail is the state newspaper. I take the print version, but this app provides highlights of news, sports, weather, lifestyle, editorial content and columns. It's perfect for those days you just don't have time to sit down and read the whole paper. It's updated throughout the day with news bulletins. It's easy to use and it's free. What's not to love?

App keeps crashing
Since early July this app started crashing once it was opened and I tried opening a subsection of the newspaper. It has now got to the point that the app is completely unusable. I talked to the newspaper technical department and they had no idea. Other iPad's access this app successfully from my location. None of the many apps on my iPad have presented a problem during this time period. I have the latest software downloaded on this iPad.

Great Coverage
I enjoy the Sports coverage very much! The articles keep me up to date on many interests and The Herd. The other sections are valuable to make me feel connected to my home state even though I live far away.

Morning review
When I don't have the hard copy Gazette available, this app is terrific for keeping up on the news. Easy to navigate, with links to older articles for further investigation. Thanks!

Unexpectedly fantastic
The Gazette finally comes through with this unusually attractive and user-friendly app -- a shock after years of having the worst possible mobile site. Excellent work!

While I go to this app daily, and it my most frequently used news app, it is slow to be updated with current news stories. Today the most recent was from March 31, today is the 3rd of April. Get with it folks!!!

Not too bad..
Better than it used to be, but I still check the local tv station apps for current news. If the daily obituaries were included, this would be my app of choice for local news.

Crash prone
Previous iteration of this app was great and I experienced zero crashes, would have given it 4 stars. Updated to the current version on 4/25, and am sad to see it crash at nearly every turn. Took seven or eight tries to read the two pages of the most recent Reader's Voice posting.
