This is a follow up to an earlier review. The app still has instant loud pop up ads that randomly appear. Considering many people enjoy reading the news peacefully in bed or at other times these loud ads don’t seem appropriate. Certainly far cry from the traditional enjoyment of a newspaper anyway. I’ve found a temporary solution on the iPhone of double clicking the home button and swiping up to quickly close the app. Then I wait hoping my wife doesn’t wake up from the loud but brief noise the ad made :-/ PS I know they need revenue but since Chico ER targets a Chico audience couldn’t they just add sponsored articles like the action news now app does. There they have a private dining ad for Chico restaurants etc.. and Chico area targeted ads may appeal to local businesses.
I've had to delete and re-install this app multiple times. It works for a week or two then, out of nowhere, when you click on an article it takes you to a Press+ account sign in page. Sometimes I can just hit cancel to read the article, but most times it spits me back out to where I have to click on the article again. I will have to repeat the process about 3-4 times before it actually lets me read the article. I would give up on this app except it's my only access to local news. Please fix this glitch.
This app is kind of hit or miss. When it loads properly, I appreciate having it and the ads aren't overly annoying. But sometimes I experience a problem where it doesn't load new content and I'm looking at 1 day old info. I'm glad to have the app and it's not terrible. Just not great either. I wish the Opinion section was at the top not the bottom. Also wish I could search.
I have much preferred this app to having to spend $1.00 for one newspaper. I like the way it allows me to find older articles I may missed. Thos app is also easy to navigate. However, recently I've been bombarded by loud video ads that appear unexpectedly and wake my wife in bed next to me, even when I have the phone muted. Lose these ads ER.
Loving the new ER app. Thankful it's free. Wish it had a search option for older stories, stories more than a day old. Also would like to see an option where I could send a message inquiring about a story or happening. A Chico events calendar would be nice, too. All in all, though, great work.
I enjoy the convenience of reading our local paper on my iPhone with this app. But now suddenly super LOUD video ads pop up when you least expect, and you can't even turn them off immediately. It's extremely annoying. Can't read at night as I never know when a blast of sound will emerge.
Doesn't update regularly. The most current story does not reflect what is in that days paper. This past week they kept updating the time of a "breaking news" story only to find it was the same article with a different headline.
