Just what I needed
Growing up in southeast Louisiana we have daily routines that mold our life ,and our newspaper is definitely one of them. There was never a day that I didn’t see the Times Picayune at the end of my driveway as a kid. Now I get to take it with me wherever I go. I was hesitant because I’m kind of a purist, but I know that the world has continued to move forward and to keep our publications going I subscribe and love it. The layout is great and I love the E-Edition of the paper. Thanks for keeping our paper alive and printing quality news .

Semi okay ish as an app.
I love how they are generally first with the news. But when I click on the notifications it tries to charge me for a subscription to read the article and then I simply open the app and I can read the same article for free. Also many of the pics in the app are too small to view properly and you can’t click them to single them out and enlarge them. This is especially frustrating when dealing with weather issues, crime/shooting issues, and Saints football issues. Fix your app y’all!!! Please let us older folk click on pics and enlarge them!!! Also, y’all need a second proofreader for grammatical errors. There seems to be a lot for a professional “paper” like y’all are. That’s a very minor thing and might speak more to my personality as opposed to your reporting. Thank you for doing what y’all do here locally!!!

NEVER THOUGHT
I have been a paper “purist” whole life. From being the paper boy delivering the States Item then the Times Picayune, I’ve been reading the morning paper. Even when the Advocate started 7 days, I had both papers delivered. We went on vacation and I started reading the paper on line and never thought that I would enjoy “turning” the pages on my IPad, but it’s been a great experience. Thanks to the Advocate for bringing the Times Picayune BACK!

Aggressive non-stop ads
This app has way too many and too aggressive ads to be enjoyable. I have a subscription and I still get pelted relentlessly with pop-up videos that continue to launch despite me closing them each time. I have to close, exit, and relaunch the app just to have an opportunity to read the articles before getting interrupted by another site or video. I understand the need to sell ads to pay for content but enough already. There needs to be a way to do it tastefully and in a way that doesn’t completely disrupt the reading process. The e-edition is pretty nice but you can’t highlight and look up text. Please please please improve this app so that people can enjoy reading about South Louisiana without the rigamarole.

Adequate!
The NOLA app is definitely adequate! It’s nothing fancy, but it will do. I don’t like the large banner at the top of an article I select on my tablet because it looks like it takes 25% - 30% of the page. At least it works most of the time. The screen refreshes every time I go to another screen and come back. I understand it there are new articles or if I haven’t been in several minutes, but it could be 2 or 3 seconds. Definitely annoying. Sometimes the refresh gets hung up and I have to close it and reopen.

NOLA App
I was born and raised in New Orleans, however, I moved away due to my spouse’s job. Therefore, it is very important to me that I keep up with my beautiful City, and all the beautiful kindhearted people who live there! The NOLA App has allowed me to do just that, as it is very informative, easy to follow, and just great overall. It brings New Orleans to me, and makes me feel so connected to my city/home! There is NO PLACE like New Orleans. Thank you!!!❤️

Reading the paper
I was getting the paper until my cancer came back. I stopped it because I go to therapy everyday. When I stopped the delivery I started reading it online when l had time. I then started getting phone calls to restart the paper. I did not know there was a charge for reading the paper online. Please stop the phone calls.

Good Morning Wake Up
I look forward each day to having my coffee and newspaper time. I find using the mobile app keeps me up to date on news and events not only on my area but local news of the cities within my region. I can check throughout the day for any updates. I also get updates on weather. Thank you for making my days brighter and informed.

Extra, extra read all about it!
The reader has choice on whether to read the news in the traditional newspaper style or in the list style. This app has a good balance of international, national and local news. Reporting states facts rather than intermix opinion. There’s always something of interest for everyone.

Waste of my time
There’s always a problem when submitting a comment to express my opinion on a story I’ve just read. This time my comment was surrounded by a red line or rather circled in red with the words “retry sending.” I spent 20 minutes writing a thoughtful and legally sound solution to a situation involving a newborn who will not have the same last name as her brother despite having the same parents, one of which is an Hispanic father with a hyphenated name. I suggest getting your news from more reliable apps than this one which has wasted my time for the last time.

where’s Dilbert?
this is a decent paper given the environment in which it functions. The app does have a tendency to keep asking me for my password (I pay a subscription to support the paper). I enjoy having both a live and a print edition online. I enjoy reading the comics, as I have since I was a child. Pop up adds can be a bit much but the paper thrives on ads so what are you going to do.

Review of Nola
The old Nola was a lot better . Stories got on faster and was updated frequently. Now I get maybe one story every 3 hours and I have stories that stay on for weeks at a time on my mobile device. Also, high school sports coverage is absolutely the worst in the south. On the mobile device, the lead stories on high school baseball were from games that happened in beginning of season and was never updated by your staff

Enjoy
Covers a wide range of topics. It’s far better than similar apps for local news. For comparison, Mississippi Today, a local news source for central Mississippi, only covers a few stories every couple of days. NOLA covers many stories in just a day.

No Articles!
Be prepared for that phrase. Also, be prepared for old stories, dead links, poor editing, grammar errors, and other forms of poor writing. Video clips aren't substitutes for journalism. Too many stories are repeated in multiple categories, while other news items aren't available. The national news is superficial at best. Sports coverage is thin and often limited to Louisiana teams and sports. For example, there's very little if any coverage of hockey, Major League Baseball, etc.

Archaic UI/UX
This app feels extremely outdated. It’s not intuitive to navigate, the loading is buggy, ads regularly cover up content so that it can’t be read (even with a paid subscription), and it feels as though the design was driven by an attempt to shove a whole serif-y printed paper onto a single screen. Looks and feels like it was developed to coincide with the launch of iOS in 2007. Please please rebuild this thing from scratch.

Good local NOLA articles a bit too Pro-Trump
Generally good reporting in a timely fashion. Some of the reporters should dig a bit deeper on local corruption issues like the Hard Rock debacle that’s still not resolved with no city or inspectors charged. It’s been a year now. That’s low hanging fruit. Also, Trump’s $35B+ bailout skipped in an article about soya farmers voting Red in rural Lousianna.

Ads blocking text. Still no night mode?
Ads are covering the text of articles, making them unreadable. Fix it. Where is the option for night mode? Most news and reader apps have this option. No option to sort stories by latest first, either. Not nearly as good as previous version. Advocate is making everything worse. They just don’t seem to care to make a good product. Also, NOLA is NOT Baton Route. Stop forcing BR stories and info into supposed NOLA version of app and paper.

Enjoyable & informative app
I really like how smoothly the app runs.. I can’t say that for many if any other ones. I would love to see a section on Lafourche but I doubt much goes on to even bother devoting a section to it.

A suggestion
Please place the spot to choose “e-edition” at the top of the page so a reader does not have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find it - both the New Orleans an Baton Rouge version have it.

Interesting articles, but too much football
There is so much happening in the New Orleans metropolitan area to dedicate so much space to football. I do enjoy your other coverage. I especially like coverage on water and flood management, changes in energy policy, and urban renovation.

Appears problems in transition have been fixed
I was a little concerned that no new news articles were appearing on the website since Georges bought out NOLA and the Times Pic. Seems to have been remedied, but the entire site has more of an antiseptic look, no imagination.

Cut off of Stories at end.
Why do you continue to end the story...leaving the last lines not digitally set to finish story. Happens a lot. Disservice to great sports writers(beat) and in Metro also./ Plus the 4-color separations are not "in register" giving multiple lips and eyebrows...especially in Nell Nolan's(great writer)Society column./ NOTE:I get the New Orleans Edition. Are we just an "Edition Outlier" of the three(3) editions you print on Baton Rouge Presses? Otherwise I think you are to be admired as journalists. Just clean up the production side. Ken Kolb. New Orleans. Thank you.
