Great for local news
I really enjoy the local news from the high school sports to local school news to local politics and community interest articles. The Pojo is much better than the one paragraph blurbs on social media. I would love to see more information on upcoming local events like the weekend section. In addition to the crime and tragedy coverage, I look forward to the good news reporting.

Keep original e-edition app and stop asking me to switch to new s
Update : another difference between the Poughkeepsie Journal Print edition app and this Poughkeepsie Journal app is that this app allows pop up ads even when in the Print Edition selection. The pop ups linger on the screen (blocking content) for 10-20 seconds before an X appears to close out the ad. Effectively, these are forced “commercial breaks” when reading the paper you have purchased. This is also likely the reason readers are being forced to this app. While the pop ups are infrequent now, I am sure they will become more frequent. While I am not happy about it, I also recognize that financial support for our 4th estate is essential. As long as the reporting quality is maintained I can live with this. This app is terrible for iPad. Keep original e-edition app and stop asking me to switch to new standalone app. Every time I see that message (and it pops up EVERY time I switch screen) it makes me think it’s time to cancel my subscription! Update- if you try to change settings on e-edition app you lose access to the app all together. Then you have to use the unusable app for iPad. An absolutely unusable app!

Great app, editing needs improvement
**Update...not crashing now. Since same app version, it must have been unruly ads or backend fix. *Update: version 5.7.2 crashes repeatedly on iPad Pro iOS 11.3 This app works very well. The layout, fonts, photos, navigation and performance are superb. My only suggestion is that the editors should not "pin" insignificant articles to top of listing for days, weeks, or even months at a time. Also, I end up reading the same articles day after day because the editor marks it as updated, even though the update is not noted or obvious. The second oldest newspaper in the USA should do better.

Previous app was much better
“0” Star but not an option. This new app is not reader friendly at all. It is unsteady on the iPad screen and hard to magnify the article you want to read. This is not an improvement at all. I used to be able to use my iPad screen to magnify while reading, not working on this new app. Advertisements at every opening, just horrible. Give us the option to stay on the previous app until developers stabilize the reader view so we are not getting impatient and cancel subscriptions.

Still love local news
The paper is the best source for what going on with local weather, COVID, other news in Hudson valley. Would give it a five star but having a little trouble navigating the sites, only a couple of days with app.

Poughkeepsie Journal
Two pages have been hanging around for a year now and really need to be taken down. The first is titled “benefits of a Poughkeepsie Journal subscription”, and another is “how to keep seeing the Journal on Facebook”. I pay for a subscription to local news and have no problem with some ads, even in a paid subscription, but please take these two down - we’ve seen enough of them.

Says I have account; I am being charged on my credit card for a subscription but every time I try and access content it says I don’t have a subscription. No help or customer service. Will have to call my credit card company to request charge back of subscription fee. Same thing on the online version. They must be be losing thousands of customers who try and access online and by app.

It mostly works
Frequently freezes in enewspaper mode for several seconds. Sometimes looses access to local paper or to US News. Sometimes just hangs and a forced stop is needed. This is on an iPad.

It’s not as easy to use as before the changes. Still haven’t figured out how to send an article to someone. Can’t get the print big enough to read. Just do not like what you did,

Constant Crashes
I’ve deleted and reinstalled this app several times but that has done no good. Everytime I use it, the app crashes. I do t have that problems with any other app so I know it isn’t a problem on my end.

Promises big; gives little
Where’s the national and international news promised. You have to hunt, and it may look like yesterday’s. And it’s slow to load. Phooey.

I am happy to have the app as it makes it much easier to read the articles. The only thing is that I wish it had a place to search for specific articles.

12 years ago, Deleted This App!
False claims
Had this FREE app for a couple weeks and enjoyed it, but over the last few days or so the app kicks you out for no reason. Then today I go to use this app and it says there is new upgrade available, so I updated my app.....BIG mistake....now the app requires a PAID subscription to use it, although in app store it states the update is for bug fixes and photos, and DOES NOT mention that upgrading means it now requires a paid subscription! I deleted this app as fast as I could.....ba-bye

Very good app
Very good app. Updated quite frequently. Would like to see local sports scores first at lower end of page. That's not a priority. But to get local news, weather and scores, overall a very good app.

Being that everyone needs to have a subscription to read any news in the Poughkeepsie Journal, this app should have a better UX (user experience). It's downright awful and works sporadically whether you're using any network, i.e. 3G, 4G, LTE, or wifi. There's just no excuse for a poorly functioning app. Please make more user friendly with working tabs and buttons .

Still incomplete.
The app does not include the entire paper. For example, despite requests, there is still no obituary section. Even with paid subscription, it is heavy on ads. It is free if you already get the paper delivered; otherwise, do think twice.

Old news is bad news
Leading with stories that are 21 and 29 days old (while the Freeman leads with current, often Dutchess County news) makes the Poughkeepsie Journal a joke. There is news, you need to report it.
