The layout has always been a bit klunky, but you could still read local news. Lately, however, as I’m reading articles, the screen keeps getting taken hostage by ads (or “congratulations winner”-type scams) that one cannot click out of. I have to force-quit the app.
Tougher to read the subscription emailed version now
We love local news, but not when biased comments are added. News is informative when it relays the facts. I have noticed more insertions of reporters own adjectives on their perceived views of the news. Journalism is based on facts. Keep opinions to the Opinion page. And although I subscribe to the Times, the navigation from page to page has become more difficult than in the past. You have made it harder now to read even with a subscription. Past Times reader
I really liked the quad city times app. Even though we take the daily newspaper, I am disabled and it's hard for me to manage the paper, I can use my iPhone or iPad. However lately, I am missing the obituaries. Why were they removed? Please put them back, I am of an age that I need to know about the death of my colleges and past friends.
I reside in AZ now, come back to coach players at the JDC almost every year. Your QC Times App has been a great way for me to keep up with one of my girl stars Shannyn Vogler. See if she grows strong enough to bring her into to ASU’s team. I couldn’t keep track of her w/o this great App. THANK YOU Q-C TIMES!!!
This app is an enormous downgrade from what was offered before. I’ll continue to use the old app that works fine most of the time. Whatever this new thing is you’re trying to do is terrible and horribly user unfriendly.
Previous version was bad with the ads-this one is way worse. You don't even have to accidentally touch an ad to get redirected to download a game app-just randomly goes there. Then you can't get back to news without closing app and starting over, then same thing all over again. Tried for a week and then just deleted-don't bother!
Update - You managed to make them WORSE by constantly leaping out if the app to a web browser. Absolute piece of crap. You have the MOST annoying ads of any app - EVER. Banners... OK even though they take up tons of screen real estate. In-line ads on top of that, pushing it. Now full screen pop up ads to top it off - bingo you just lost a customer. Pick one ad mechanism, not ALL of them.
By far the worst news app, not even comparable to circa-2009 apps. Ads are highly intrusive even with paid subscription. Worse, there is no content!!! Embarrassingly bad for a major news organization such as Lee.
