Local news at your fingertips
This is a good app to receive local news at your fingertips. It’s easy to navigate and you can customize the notifications you receive to certain topics that interest you. The app does send quite a bit of notifications daily even at the minimal settings, but as far as news apps go this is definitely a good choice.

Keeping Up?
App works seems to work well though I wonder how much management reviews and updates it. One of the major sub headings is “Tappan Zee Bridge”. This bridge was replaced more than two years ago with the Cuomo Bridge.

Search is terrible
I still get a paper (a dinosaur, I know), but once in a while I want to look for an article that I remember reading or forward an article to a friend. The search function simply does not work. Just today I tried searching for an article that I had in front of me and could not locate it in the app. Nor could I find it by looking at the sections of the paper online. Maybe the only thing that shows up in this app is the local news, not what appears in the national section. If so, they at least should make that clear.

Good, but….
I often have a hard time bringing up the app when I’m not in my home area. I end up uninstalling and installing the app again. That seems to work. Upon doing that this last time , I now have ads pop up while I’m reading the paper. A subscription I PAY for! I should Not be seeing ads ! Shameful

Pitiful digital app performance
IPad user and reader of lohud - very unstable app of late - USA Today working ok but as an example: lohud page just hangs and will not open pages - not sure how you can continue to charge users for these ongoing issues - frankly the news content has become minimal over past year or so but frozen digital pages provide zero news - probably will cancel subscription unless performance upticks soon.

The worst version by far.
As if having at least 65% of the Journal News be advertisements isn’t enough, this latest lohud app adds pop up ads?? The previous version didn’t, and also allowed adjustable zooming when viewed on an iPad. This new one has one zoom setting and frequently jumps into text reading mode at the slightest touch. Aggravating is the most polite comment.

Long Time Digital Subscriber
Brutal website and app - lock outs subscription paid users on subscriber only articles - then unable to login as pages freeze during login process - only wants to users to approve access to collecting personal information - nobody wants to fight with their paid for subscription app first thing in the morning in order to read the newspaper- change the name to The Hooterville Daily Express - totally bogus.

It’s annoying
I only subscribed because I want local news, but this app is just annoying. I have to physically sign in every time I want to read a subscribers only article and the my topics feature only sends me notifications for high school girls soccer which is not one of the topics I requested. I do not have any of these issues with my other news subscription.

Selective liberal reporting
Very left wing newspaper...reports on “anti-trump” protests daily but I have never seen one mention of the violent “antifa” attacks on law-abiding Americans. Reports on plight of “hard-working” illegal aliens getting deported but I have never seen one mention of gangs of illegals or frequent drunk driving illegal alien. Report on the alleged illegalities of conservatives, but have never seen a mention of the vote tampering and voter fraud concocted by democrats in every election. More fake news....cancelling my subscription

Terrible app
First, there is no search feature. The comment link is annoyingly at the beginning of an article, so you have to scroll up to comment. You cannot share articles with Facebook groups. The so-called news is completely right wing-biased. The top news is not the important issues of the day, but more like human interest pablum.

LoHud rocks!
Even as the industry shrinks, LoHud continues to be the dominant source of local news in Westchester and Rockland counties. If you live or work here, LoHud is a must read every day.

New LOHUD app is an improvement?
Sorry, not sorry, but it is difficult to manage, has inadequate help, not at all user-friendly…why?? It is difficult to manage and even harder to navigate. Inadequate help, not user-friendly are gross understatements. Why???

Most parts of the app won’t load
Every time I click on something, it says “loading problem”. If it’s not fixed soon I will cancel my subscription, as I can’t read the news.

Pop ups all over
So sorry I updated the app. Pop ups constantly. I can’t get the zoom correct to see the whole page without pop ups and constant page jumps on iPad. Terrible. Please fix.

When will you update the app?
This use to be a decent app for local Lower Hudson Valley news. However it has been unusable for MONTHS. Crashes immediately upon loading. When are you going to update? Do I have to threaten to cancel my subscription?

I just wanted to read my local paper online instead of hard copy. Before I would suspend delivery for a month at a time. I wanted to suspend delivery permanently. Now I have to wade through ads and repeating stories to find certain articles. It’s terrible.

App Constantly Crashes
I want to support & read local news. However it is extremely difficult when the app constantly crashes/freezes and needs to be rebooted. Very frustrating!

The app says you can share with your family. That does not work. So you and your partner need two subscriptions? May it never be! Search does not work either. Even $1.99 is too much for stuff that does not do what it says it does.

Useless app now
A once good app for local news is completely useless now. Only thing that loads is a blank screen. Will be deleting app ASAP! One sided liberal agenda garbage! If you are a naive one party voter, this hack news outlet is for you. Otherwise don’t waste your time or money!
