It’s clear this app is not well supported nor do they have A-level talent (or B for that matter) working on it. It’s a shame considering local journalism will be going online more and more in coming years. As a paying subscriber, please invest in this app.
Blaring Video Ads, Lack of Organization, and Old Storiesd
Ads, including long, loud video pop up frequently while scrolling through or reading stories. It is obnoxious. The layout of the app is not well organized. Oftentimes stories are not updated and the same newsfeed is in the latest section for days. Most recently there are stories in multiple. Not much local news. A lot of AP stories from all over. Lacking in local content and coverage. Sometimes inappropriate ads at the bottom of the screen. Latest version with pop up ads causes the app to crash frequently.
Looks like this was bad five years ago…and it still is! Very glitchy, crashes, freezes up. When we called the paper they told us it was our internet service. Just cannot imagine how internet service that can support the New York Times and the Washington Post isn’t good enough for this small town paper lol. We just cancelled our subscription.
Seems like less content than the real paper and the same stories are repeated over and over in the news feed...very annoying. The classifieds, weekly ads, deals, and weather sections are a waste of space. Otherwise app layout and design are nice.
I regret updating this app to its current version as the Obituaries are now considered Premium Content. I find it odd that the articles that the Tribunes paid staff produce are still accessible at no charge, yet the content produced by the recently deceased and their families costs extra. I hope the Trib will reconsider.
The app is functional, although now filled with adds, mostly pro Romney. The app also duplicates news articles, which is annoying. The content isn't bad, however, after sifting through the same stories several times.
Why is this app all of a sudden crashing/shutting down when reading? Just started yesterday. After uninstall/re-install it will allow reading of 1 article. After closing & opening later, it goes back to shutting down??
Starting two weeks ago the IOS on my iPad app displays pretty pictures, but every time you click to actually read the article it fails with a no content available message. I sent a message to the Tribune about the problem, but nothing has changed. The Android version is still working.
Would be nice if the share feature worked right. I wanted to share a story with a friend via email and I couldn't get out of the screen to send it. Mayo ads that pop up are very annoying. Multiple entry's with same story is very odd too.
