Very convenient and informative
It’s nice to have the OD on my phone and to have the latest up to date news close at hand.

Missing the original newspaper format
Not comfortable at all with this format on my iPad. Why are the articles more than a few days old? The layout is very confusing, there’s no living section, which I presume is now the Lifestyle section. Why can’t the comics be spread onto one page instead of a list of choices? Plus, no Lockhorns,, our favorite. My real question is, is there an option to go to settings to have the original format of a real newspaper? And, why does my iPhone still show the original format? Even the obits show 98 in the number available?. I don’t want to see a month’s worth when I’m a daily subscriber. I just want to see and read the daily paper. Very dissatisfied so far.

The OD is a fine source for the latest news from all venues… local, state , national and more ! The new format makes it easy to pick up on articles of interest and photos that are relevant! Good reporting as well .

Utica OD
Absolutely terrible! Ads take up half the screen and don’t disappear when you touch the “X” in the corner. They expect you to pay for this content??? No me!

OD app better than web site!
This is the first app that I have seen that is better than the actual web site! It is well laid out, easy to surf, pleasant to the eye, and no dead links. Unfortunately, they have just started limiting the number of times you can use it per month.

The OD
I was born in the Mohawk Valley and worked in Utica. Currently reside in Ft. Lauderdale. Still have friends and family in NY. The OD keeps me up to date. The app is well done and always improving. Part of my daily routine that I enjoy.

Crashes daily
I have had issues with the old format and continues with the new. I like reading the obituaries and crashes. Then you have to go and start all over again. Needs a fix!

Have your developers learn how to write complete sentences before you have them post updates to software. It’s absolutely ridiculous and embarrassing. This is obviously an outsourced piece of software, hire real people and get a real app. Figure the Republican paper would hire outside help to do something they should hire somebody internal to do.

Format disappointing
Not everyone wants picture puzzles. I miss the old format that duplicated the hard copy edition. I could browse and discover page by page. Now I have to think about the categories of news I might want to see, and miss other stories.

I live very far away, and I would love to see what's going on back home! This app does not work all the time, and when it does, I can't view every section of the 'paper'. I would love to see the announcements, etc. PLEASE FIX THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you Kidding?
Used to be a decent app but now they have outsourced certain sections, most notably the obituaries. Initials, seriously!! It's poor decisions like this, that prevent Utica from changing for the better. Proof reading should be a papers number one priority!

Terrible app!
Your sports coverage is deplorable! As someone who is from New Hartford and lives in Arizona, trying to find all the local high school hockey scores is impossible! Your national sports coverage is poor at best! But if erin hamlin comes in tenth at an event its everywhere!!
