J C app
I like your app much better than the actual paper. It is a joke. I have lived here for over 40 years and was very impressed with the paper when I moved here. Monday and Tuesday it is just like a pamphlet anymore.

I am canceling, here is why
I subscribe to the E edition for several years. They “upgraded the app”. For me it wasn’t an upgrade but a down grade. All I want/need was to be able to swipe left or right, pinch to expand or contract. With the new version I am not able to do that and I am slammed with more click bait…promo ads. And in reality that is the real reason for the “up grade”…..more exposure to the ads. As other reviewers noted, it jumps to places not intended, there is no guarantee when hitting the back arrow you end where you were, the size format is not consistent, there is probably more but I am trying to erase it from my brain cells. As a result I am looking to other sources for my local news. Adios, J & C

Update. Obituaries cumbersome to use
The obit app has been greatly improved. Very easy to use. From2021 The obituaries are very difficult to use. There is an announcement of someone’s passing only. To find out more you have to search the funeral homes pages. Very cumbersome. This used to be an OK app but not so much anymore. Disappointing.

App crashes since update
I haven’t been able to access the app in the past week. I’ve deleted and reinstalled several times with the same problem of it crashing every time I try to open.

Beyond terrible but improved
Unless this app gets changed for the better, I will be canceling my account It is much better than I first thought. I have yet to find an easy way to go back to the previous page.

Terrible experience!
I like the Journal and Courier as a newspaper, but every time they change the app, I have issues. I typically read the paper on an iPhone and each app change has caused me to have to readjust how I am able to view it on my phone. Also the settings don’t seem to function correctly - I don’t want tracked or targeted advertisements, but there does not appear to be any functioning mechanism in settings to change to anything but allow all. Not happy!

Crashes immediately
I have used this app for years. Since the most recent version came out it immediately crashes on both of my iPhones. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app and I’m using the latest iOS. I called customer service for help and they said there must be something wrong with both of my phones. There is not! Then they said I need to talk to Apple. No, I think they need to talk to someone get this glitch fixed. This app is now unusable.

Not able to access my subscription
Periodically, I am unable to read articles. I have my fee automatically withdrawn each month with no exceptions. Right now, I keep being locked out. I go to the "restore subscription" link which takes me no where. Very aggravating. There is no way to contact anyone for help.

Good source of news
App functions well. Local news is posted timely and e-newspaper mirrors the paper version which makes reading very convenient.

We have been subscribed to home delivery for 5weeks! The paper has not been delivered at least 15 timesheet! It is random days that we don’t receive it. On Sunday I asked for the paper to be re delivered, still didn’t receive it. I hope our account is being credited accordingly. If this continues we will be removing our subscription☹️☹️☹️

More local news
J&J does not look or feel like a local paper. More local news in a timely manner and more coverage on high school sports would be a huge improvement .

J-C App works great!
I use the Journal Courier app every day to check the local news and sports. Having read the J/C since 1967, it’s pretty much a figment if it’s former self. The lack of staff editorials and reader opinions is really sad.

App crashes immediately on opening
Would do 0 stars if possible! Latest update is horrible and constantly crashes. I’ve removed app and reloaded multiple times and it continues to crash. I have latest iPhone and software is updated. Don’t frustrate yourself with it! They need to fix it.

Not good
The side buttons are in the wrong location. You can easily hit them accidentally. Now the app will reset itself multiple times while trying to read the paper.

I like getting the local news and national/world news without bias. Fortunately JC still presents the news in detail and offers opinions with common sense opinions. Thank you.

App will not open
I’ve had issues recently with the app not opening. It starts, then abruptly closes. I have to access the paper via my browser instead. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, but no difference. Please fix this.

App crashes upon opening
This app is failing. I pay to read the news but it’s impossible when it crashes upon opening each time. I’ve tried uninstalling it and re installing. Still crashes. I’m ready to stop my subscription.

Version 6.4.0 crashes
While using the iPhone, app crashed when clicking on masthead to return to homepage. It then crashes every time you reopen. This happened first to my wife on her phone, then the today on mine. Only fix is to delete app and download again.

Zero stars
This is one of the worst apps I’ve ever used. I don’t know if it is just the app or if it is also the incompetence of the paper but I seem to be stuck in some kind of infinite loop where every time I try to click on a link it asks me to log in. Every. Time. This is bogus.

It used to be I could read several articles per month for free via my iPhone. Not any longer. I’m going to delete this app. Can get the same, or usually better, coverage via WLFI or even the Indianapolis Star.
