The Gazette is a terrific award-winning local paper, first published in 1786. I like their app because I like the paper, and because I like the format. You see the pages of the newspaper, so it feels a lot more like ‘reading the paper’ than, say, the NYT app. You can read the headlines, and if you want to know more, you click on the article and it’s immediately enlarged for easy reading. The Gazette is struggling as are many local papers, from competition from internet based journalism and from COVID-19. I very much hope it manages to thrive into the rest of its third century!

It’s great to be able to see the paper both in layout and article by article. And to be able to search by article. Searchability would be good too, especially for back issues. still receive the paper daily in physical form, especially for advertisements.
I don’t agree with your political views as I believe that Donald Trump is best for the future of this country and will keep us free. With Biden and his condition and his history of relations with China and his Vice Presidential choice he will end freedom as we know it. I also believe in a free press that doesn’t suppress the truth and if Biden gets elected our mainstream media will get even worse than it is today. Thanks
I’m really enjoying the e-edition! The photos are in color. I can enlarge each column to read a larger type. During a snowstorm when the driving was AWFUL, my newspaper was right on my tablet & ready to read. I figured out how to get the puzzles to print, but I am happy to have both newsprint & e-edition.
We are extremely fortunate to have a good app that provides easy access to our fine local paper. I hope that, as a community, we can support both services to assure their full health in the years ahead.
It has improved over time. Swiping to next page should put you at the top of the page and lock it in instead of leaving you between pages. Pressing on a multi-page story should give you the whole story and not just what is on the page. Still, it works and I am glad to read it on my iPad.
Would you please carry editorial cartoons by Clay Bennett of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. They are excellent with fine artwork and thoughtful insights. They are featured in your sister newspaper The Valley News of West Lebanon, NH where I lived before moving here. Bennett has won a Pulitzer for his cartoons! Thank you! STMcA Easthampton, MA
I Just didn’t realize how much I was missing over the years… I’m feeling a part of the community once again! Thank you to the entire staff at the DHG… I’m enjoying reading the Digital News on my Mobile Phone…it’s just incredibly fluid and very well presented in easy to read columns… Well done to all…the reasonably priced digital subscription was well within our price range… and… “worth every penny”… With Best Regards, JAM Jr… Happily Retired “Hamp” Resident!
This app usually works fairly well. It’s in the print edition format, so it feels like I’m reading the paper the way I used to. Easy to navigate, but sometimes doesn’t load completely, so chunks of text are missing.
Now that I don’t have to sign in every time to read the paper digitally, I read it every day. I’m glad that you changed the access rules because I found the other way very annoying and avoided using it.
