Getting Better
Below is a negative review that I previously left. I just loaded up version 2.0. It seems to work 1000 times better. The articles load much faster and the amazing thing is that they ALL load. The articles are also available off line. Thank you developers. You have done a much better job on version 2.0. Tried it in July and it would not load the articles. It shows all of the headlines, weather, and articles but when you click on them it never connects to their server. Tried it again today. Figured they worked out the bugs. No such luck. Same problems. Doesn't work on my iPhone, my friends iPhone or my iPad. It's no wonder these guys are claiming bankruptcy for the second time. They want to go digital but don't seem to know how.

Great app
Although I haven't lived in NY in 30 years I still consider the Freeman my home town newspaper. This is a much appreciated access to my roots... It is superbly constructed and very easy to navigate. Thank You

Hideous and mostly unusable.
I have tried, using my fairly knowledgeable digital skills. Iphone 8 Plus, several different browsers, as well as on a newer computer, trying several browsers. Takes at least a dozen patient clicks to get to anything. Wifi in house is strong and fast, and the fault is ALWAYS the various Freeman apps and their upgrades (HAH!). Latest - I need to keep an older Freeman screen on Safari or Mozilla, if I want to even try to read the Freeman. Cancelled our dailt delivery (except for Sunday - want the ads) - and total cancellation coming soon. I read several other papers and news feeds daily - you are soon expendable.

Was fine until recent update
The Daily Freeman app was always a great app, always a great place to find good local news and what was going on in the area. The videos were easy to get to and played smoothly. I downloaded the update a few days ago (three or four). The new app is not very user friendly or smooth- they're trying too hard to look like other big news apps when they were perfectly fine already! Now when I attempt to start the app, I get the start up screen....then, it crashes. This has happened for the past day or two.

2 years ago, unimaginably awful app
Lousy app
It is extremely difficult to use the app. In settings it tells me I’m logged in using Auth0 (whatever that is), but it won’t let me read full articles. It keeps offering me subscription deals, but I’m already a subscriber. If I try the “Restore Subscription” button (which also pops up frequently), it tells me no subscription found. To add insult to injury, it wants a nickname to post a review, but if you attempt to use something negative, it says nickname already in use!

Worse news app ever !
This is by far the worst news app. It is slow, non-intuitive, and usually out if date. The cover page and menus are dated looking - the equivalent to the drive-in half time shows in a world of sleek and sophisticated. And forget it if you actually attempt to search for a story. The only consolation is that it lacks the onslaught of ads that make articles on its companion website virtually unreadable. Hard to imagine but the app and website actually make its mediocre paper edition look good.

New app is disappointing
I preferred the previous app. I dislike the dark background and small font on this one. The picture behind the headline story makes it difficult to see. While the loading speed did improve, it seems like there are much fewer stories. Some of the features seem to be missing. It is not a comfortable reading app. The pictures arent showing like they used to.

Horrible after new update!!!
The app is unusable after the latest update. The app will crash many times while trying to be opened. If the app is able to open, it is very slow but you get to view a article for a few seconds before it crashes again! Total joke! The previous versions were good and better to navigate than the Freeman's website. Unfortunately their app is now like their website....junk.

Very very disappointing
Been a subscriber to the Freeman for the past 52 years. Delivery is beyond horrendous so tried the app. Also beyond horrendous. Old news, not recent and no alerts. Obituaries are difficult should be recent and alpha order. What has happened To this hometown paper! So very disappointed. Most likely will give up subscription to daily paper much to my dismay. And you call this progress?

It's ok
Too many double articles. Obituaries should go back to how they were and list daily not abc order for all. Sections should match paper. Should be a people section. Where are the funnies. It's cool to have not to have to leave the house but a few more adjustments could give 5 stars.

Good enough, but...
The app does basically what I'd hope it to...allow me to read the articles. I am, however, always finding myself wishing I could read and/or post comments below the articles!!!!!! 5 stars if that update is released.

Obituaries please!!
Please provide daily (easy to read and search) obituary information. The old app had a link to a very difficult to read and follow obituary www site. But the new one doesn't have any link to the obit page! A local paper is valued for local info!!

The old version lacked search and served up a tiny fraction of what is available on the web. The new version leaves all that the same, but now includes the same sleazy pop-up ads that make the website irritating. If this is the only way the Freeman can stay afloat, I will soon turn to gossiping with my neighbors.

The Daily Freeman is atrocious
I have been reading the Freeman my entire life until the last few months. I have become disgusted with your lack of sensitivity or common courtesy as well as accurate reporting. Journalism is reporting the entire, unbiased story. This paper does not deliver either part. This app is being deleted as soon as this review is submitted.

Arrest reports?
Disappointed to learn that the Daily Freeman no longer provides arrest reports for free. With violent crime in our area on the rise, I have relied on the Daily Freeman’s police blotter for the past few years as this information is vital for public safety. I had hoped it would stay this way.

Daily freeman app
Frequently crashes, national articles rarely load, events are from somewhere else and view the freeman site through the app is impossible because the viewport is fixed and small.

Daily Freeman is too Woke
I’d prefer if the daily freeman stuck to news that enhanced and educated the local population as opposed to aggressively taking one side in promoting culture war wedge issues. I’ll be unsubscribed until they put the well being of our local population first.

I usually look at this app at least twice a day but recently it has stopped updating the content. Nothing new for days. I find it hard to believe there is no new news out there. Work the bugs out please.

Whom ever designed this app certainly did not intend for it to be used on an iPhone as the font is incredibly small. And the black back ground is not a smart choice either. As for the content included, well that leaves a lotto be desired also.

Almost empty
Lists several categories but some are not available. No national or world news but that is not really a surprise since the Freeman itself has so little world news.

Subscription needed now
What otherwise would have been a 5 star review, now a subscription is needed for this local news content. Can't sell enough newspapers to cover an app with minimal info?!? Lame.

Low class
Repeat, repeat, repeat...... and then repeat some more. No access to replica edition from the app. I’ve been around here since 1994 and it’s just been a slippery slope downhill all that time culminating in this amateur app.
