Good app, Nice newspaper
App works well. Disappointed that version 6.5.7 removed the link to the E-edition which is like reading the home delivery version of the paper, with its local ads and lots of local news not included in the app version. Now you must log into the website to see the E-edition which takes a few more steps.

Doesn’t work
I’ve been an e subscriber to the Herald for as long as it has been offered. The new “improved “ app continually sends me in a circle asking me to subscribe and when I try to log in it repeats the same window asking me to subscribe again. I’ve been on the phone and online with them four times and spent over an hour trying to get this resolved. The people that “help “ me don’t seem to be local employees of the paper and seem to have little knowledge about the app or even the current database of subscribers. On my first phone call after my first email attempt at help the the person couldn’t even find my account after keeping me on hold for over 30 minutes. Eventually he figured it out and then told me that my access would work tomorrow. It didn’t. Two more assists from their tech support and it still doesn’t.

Local news you can use
The focus is local news, as it should be. Other media can cover the rest.

I subscribe to the herald mail but half the time I do not get the paper and I can’t even get on the internet to read it. It says I’m not a subscriber. If this is how USA Today takes care of it’s customers it’s not doing a very good job. Every time I call they say it’s taken care of but it just came on I have 1 more article to read before you shut me down. Why would I pay 99 cents for this when I can’t get what I already pay for. 😩

Does not contain all content from the print edition
The previous app had all stories from the print edition and even let you pull up an image from the print edition and view the ads and notices. The current app (as stated in the FAQ) only contains some stories from the print edition. I'm a digital-only subscriber so I'm now getting less content for the same money.

You may as well read Grit
This used to be an award-winning community newspaper that covered all areas of interest. It has been gutted and now features only the most generic pap. You could at one time read divergent opinions from nationally ranked writers, but now the Opinion page on the app features only one writer and rantings of local characters. The printed paper includes real writers, but those writers aren’t included in the digital version. So sad.

What happened to the print edition. The one that looks like you’re just reading a newspaper. This app is horrible. Does not contain all the content that is in the print edition !!

No copy of paper
When requested to sign up for the APP, it was reported that an ecopy of the paper would be included. Don’t see it.

This app is not worth the money you paid the developers. I enjoyed the previous app which allowed me to read an e-edition of the Herald-Mail, this app does not have that option. I guess I will have to consider my subscription a waste of money since I no longer enjoy “reading” the Herald-Mail.

New Format
Hate the new layout. Can’t tell what is today’s or yesterday’s news. Can’t find various pieces. Horoscopes and comics are no where to be found. First time I’ve pulled up the paper and read nothing. I liked the old newspaper view option.

Shows ads to subscribers
Disgusting to see ads even after subscribing, which I did for my grandmother because she tends to click on ads and doesn’t know how to come back to the article. Herald-mail preys on such people.

Security is a must
Apple needs to review security protocols with developer. I.e. tip-off weather location.

Good enough for me
This app is good enough for me. I have been away from the area for awhile ,and this app keeps me up to date enough. Could it be better ,sure,but it could be a lot worse too . I would like to see the obits have more archived , say up to one month,or a link that would go back even farther.

Humor Removed
In a time of such seriousness, why remove the comics. A light hearted way to address topics of interest and just provide a laugh. Sad

Breaking news
Great app but the the breaking news needs to be updated more often or taken down after about 12 hours instead of being left up for days at a time and not updated

Great app!
We moved away from Hagerstown a few years ago but still enjoy keeping up with the news there. The app is easy to navigate and allows us to maintain a connection to a town that we love.

What? Who would want this?
Get the your4sate app instead. This app used to provide the local news; however, it had many of the same stories day after day. Isn't there new news??? Now, there isn't even a news category. Some writers mentioned that u have to pay to be able to see that category now. Why would I want to pay for the same stale news day after day?

Good app
Nice app for local information. Mostly hometown celebrations and minor crimes. Many grammatical and spelling errors in the articles... Can be frustrating when info is incorrect! Example: I-80 is closed! When they actually mean I-81.

I made an account just to read something that I am in and when I went to go try to read it, it said I have to get a subscription on the site. No. that's stupid. This app is useless if you gotta make an account and have a subscription. Make a mobile site. Not reinstalling.

What Happened To This App???
I need a password now? Really?? I mean I can access all the site on the regular web just fine but if I want to use the app I can’t unless I do what? Register? Pay? Could you developers just let us know what the deal is so we can use this app? Otherwise, I’ll just delete the thing.

The site is not very comprehensive. Only about half the content as the website. No access to the classifieds. I agree with updating the "breaking" news.

I've had this app since it came out. I've loved it. I am now deleting it for these two reasons. I am not putting in a password to read the news. The new layout is much more difficult to read and navigate.
