A very good app for local information!
I have never been one to sit with a news paper and read front to back. Having our local news and info presented in this format is great. There are just a few sections I read every day, but am glad all the paper is available in this app. There have been some issues in the past with some stories or sections not opening correctly. Since the latest update was done to the app, I can not think of any problems I've had with it. I'm please with it got the most part!!

Avoid this app!
This app has major known faults, yet it has not been repaired for weeks (Aug. 2023). Avoid downloading until it is fixed. Current, paid-up subscribers cannot advance beyond the second page of the e-edition. Despite multiple phone calls to online support and individual N&R staff members over a period of more than two weeks, this access problem has not been solved. Email contacts with staff have been ignored. One online support person acknowledged the issue but had no plan for addressing it. Considering the current diminished state of print journalism, it seems the least a publication can do is to allow those who have already paid for the service have access to it!

Needs a lot more work
Not user friendly. I am allergic to newsprint so I keep adding this app, . Then I have to delete because of all the frustration. This morning the app kept freezing. My speed tester reported that the problem is not my Ipad so I deleted the app AGAIN! So now I have to suffer the newsprint again. Someone please invent a newsprint that is easy on allergies. Someone fire the person who created this poor app.

Alerts are DAYS late
I assume it’s an editorial decision to push out stories that are days and days old? Just like the updates sent via email, OLD news. Application seems to be working better than it was.

Like the paper but the app doesn’t refresh — still seeing an item from 3 months ago under Local News.

Only let’s you look at 15 articles
You can only look at 15 articles and it will make you make an account not worth it. Try Fox 8 app for local news no account needed. And it’s a lot better

Getting better
Tried this app recently and it seemed to work o.k. Nice to be able to read the N&R while away. Keep improving it, please.

Getting better but
Thanks for making improvements but you still have a ways to go to be as good as your previous app. Why is there no obvious choice on the home page to go directly to the eEdition? This app is too slow to change between pages. Each page seems to load individually. Would there be a way to have an index to navigate directly to sections such as obituaries, comics, etc. The regional section appeared one Sunday as we requested a million times but we haven't seen it since. We dropped our print subscription and believe you are heading in the right direction. No more cold or wet mornings to fetch a paper, no more vacation stops, and our paper goes with us wherever we go.

Long Way From Home
I live in Florida now for 6 years. I read the News & Record every day to stay in touch with the community In which i was born and raised. It helps me feel connected even though I've been gone for 30 years.

Initial pop up ad lags
Your initial ad, usually a real estate company, will not swipe up or close out in a timely matter. I'd like to spend more time in your app, but the lag is frustrating so I am deleting this from my iPhone. I'm not technically challenged and have a newer model phone, so no issues on this end. Please update.

Woefully incomplete
Pretty pitiful. Whatever happened to a section labeled "Sports"? ACC and high school boxes just don't cut it. Headline news: "jailer forces oral sex..." (The very first news item!) On the front page? How pitiful is that? Surely something worth publishing can be gleaned from the state, local or national news. When do we stop with the horrific and Hollywood crap? I'll stick to the other sources of the news.

New and Improved? Think again.
So taking an app that the Akron Beacon-Journal has had out there for 2 years and jury-rigging it for the News & Record is someone's idea of an upgrade? Think not. Plus none of the sections outside of the main news have been updated since before Christmas. The whole app is an example of lazy and sloppy work.

Must pay to read full article
This is a fairly well organized app (though the priority order of news stories is quite mystifying). However, on many stories, after you read the first sentence or two, you are taken to a screen where you are told you must pay to read more. Not really a free app!

News and Record
Could use some work . Articles are old. A lot of time syncing and searching. Search feature will not pull up articles that I've searched for. iPhone 4S 7.0

Moderately Useful
There is no search function. Passable for browsing a few headlines but useless if looking for news or updates on a specific topic. The print version of the paper is quality. Disappointing the app seems to be more of an obligatory afterthought than a true complement to the newspaper.

Great way to keep up w/ local news.
Before downloading the app was more interested and/or inclined to read nat'l news, but now I make sure to consult the daily local news as well. Thanks!

Article Limit
Was a good little news app but now they limit the number of articles you can read. I understand this is probably due to lower hard copy sales.

Still Bad
The old News and Record app was bad. This one is even worse. To many ads, jumbled and confusing. Don't waste your time downloading - you'll also be spending time deleting it.

Not Great!
This app has no way to get into the e-edition. I have subscribed thru e-edition for quite some time, but this paper does not meet needs of e-subscribers. The sites come and go and I must enter and re-enter my ID and password to read stories. Very irritating!
