It’s free: UPDATE-It’s literally the worst
Updated review: The Journal Times took an already poor app and made it worse! It’s incredibly clunky. You can’t read comments anymore. I haven’t been able to comment in ages, I have to actually go out to a browser, look up JT and comment there! Now, when you look at say the criminal reports, you have to press the back arrow MANY times before getting back to the main page. What is the deal JT? It’s absolutely awful. I definitely look elsewhere for most of my local news now. That’s the good thing. It glitches like crazy. The commenting part doesn’t let you reply directly like the online version does so comments are out of order. I took it off because it kept freezing. I’ll reinstall to see if it helps. Otherwise I’ll leave it off. But the JT in general has very biased reporting. As well as horrible editing. Expect to see many grammatical, spelling, punctuation and editing errors. Many commenters edit for them at times and then they fix the article.

Journal times e edition
This web site is one of the worst ones I have ever seen. You can’t get through the paper from beginning to end without it doing something crazy. Me and my husband both find it very irritating first thing in the morning. I usually end up just giving up.

You can’t read any articles
They changed the app so you now have to have a paid subscription to read any articles - all you get to read is the title and then you are blocked from scrolling and reading anything else. I had this app installed for years and it was my main source of Racine news, but I’m deleting it now.

Crashes Galore..
Before the app launches, subscribers and non-subscribers alike are subject to 20 second ads; search for articles appearing on Tweets and other posts are no-where to be found. While attempting to forward prior day articles via message or email, CRASH the app to Black Screen. Guessing no one uses the app otherwise the J-T would update the app.

Ineffective for reading news
This app is not practical for actually reading the news. Much waiting time and screen space is devoted to delivering ads. I nearly canceled my newspaper subscription, and would have, were it not possible to download a pdf of the paper.

Fix this app
I quit getting the paper because it wasn't worth the money. This app drives you into advertisements you can't turn off - click on a story and you get a commercial. If I didn't live in Racine I would delete the app. I'd pay a couple of bucks to get no adds.

App Continuously Closing
Can’t read a story in full before it closes itself out. Very frustrating to have to open the app over and over again (minimum twice) just to get through one story or an obituary. Please fix.

The September 2023 update has made this app useless on both iOS and iPadOS. Zero stars from a longtime subscriber.

Denies subscription readers access.
App lets you sign in but will not let you read articles you are already subscribed to read. Then it doesn’t recognize you to restore purchases. JUNK APP !

New version landscape view
While the improvements are not bad, the one thing that was lost on the latest Verizon's is the landscape view. I really miss that, don't like to read in portrait view, too much scrolling needed. Please fix as soon as possible.

Nothing good in this app
Bloggers are removed bad idea. I think it’s because the JT doesn’t not want to hear or have others read an opinion different then theirs

Great app -- lots of local news and features, including videos and photo galleries. I appreciate the push alerts for breaking news, too. Had been crashing occasionally a month or so ago, but that seems to have been fixed.

This is a fine app
I'm a high school sports junkie and this app helps me. I also enjoy the Racine Raiders coverage available anywhere at anytime. The app itself has few problems and is easy to navigate.

Upset about the iPhone update!
Wow, guys really? So I was so excited to know that I can still keep in touch with my hometown with the JT app. Now, after updating the app, I find that the most interesting articles/info are now under a premium category in which you have to sign up for! WOW! Not good! Why was that sufficient? Guess I gotta delete the app now:( there goes keeping in touch with the goings on in my hometown:(
