Enjoy Digital Version
Now that I’ve got the hang of how to read the digital version, I enjoy reading it each morning. Would like more local Salem news.

News stories
This app is easy to use and has access to information we need. That said, you really need to clean up this news page daily. Just today’s example. There are two articles on the OSU Beavs loss last night. It also has another article about what they need to do to win the game and end on a good season note. This does not speak well for good journalism. Please edit these pages and delete the old new. Hate having to wade through all the old news.

Great way to stay informed of community
App is good. Nice way to access local news and support local journalism that connects to community. Worth the price and way better than doom scrolling through social media feed.

One of the worst “news” ever. The app runs same old articles over and over. There is little in the way of news. It is is mostly high school sports. Provocative clickbait dating apps and miracle cure ads run indistinguishable from the few news articles. Numerous attempts to contact the paper itself have gone unanswered. I gave this joke of a newspaper several years. Save your money.

The Statesman Journal has continued its path toward irrelevance with this app. The content is a mashup of old and new stories, few of which are locally oriented. The old print version app at least allowed the reader to browse through the daily stories and identify and read new content. Reading the e version of the paper is almost impossible. The zoom feature doesn't work and the reader is inundated with intrusive ads.

Worst app ever
Don’t waste your money. Would rate lower but can’t go lower than one star. Doesn’t recognize as subscriber. I paid for full access both paper and digital, now have to pay double if you want both. When you select an article it doesn’t come up or then just a copy of the article that is to small to read. Then on another article it comes ip as a readable article.

Real local news when you need it!
The Santiam Canyon Fire did it for me. I subscribed for the unlimited digital access. And not the cheapskate 97% off promo. Journalists need to eat and buy the occasional frivolous hat.., Reliable reporting on the here and now. Only available here.

Obnoxious pop up
I have a lifetime free subscription as a Chemeketa Alumni and yet for some reason even though im signed in, when I'm trying to read news stories a pop up asking me to subscribe keeps covering the view of the article. It makes me not want to continue using the app.

Good content, lousy cancellation service
I purchased the original 99 cent for 6 months digital to see coverage of Legislature special session. I held onto t for an extra month, knowing the charge would go to $9.99 per month. But I now want to cancel and how to do it is buried in app and in tge end, I have to call - to end something started online. Bogus entrapment.

The articles are very in depth and they stay on top of everything going v on within my city and the entire state. It is so nice to know what is going on around me.

Get rid of “For subscribers”, I am one.
That’s basically all. I think it’s a bit annoying when I am a subscriber but it still shows that message.

Rip off Garbage Advertising
There is some content but regardless of the money you pay to subscribe, you must weed through the constant barrage of pop ups and fake news stories to find it. Open a video and you get advertising, followed by a short clip that often doesn’t even load. Pathetic.

Where is my paper?
Going on 2 days with no delivery of our daily paper. So it’s on my cell phone or nothing. What happened to customer service? I especially look forward to the paper with my coffee in the morning. Is the Statesman trying to end my years as a customer? This is getting more common and I don’t appreciate it one bit.

Topical issues and news alerts that effect Oregon come to me on the daily and hourly. Easy to navigate and reporters who cover the entire issue from multiple perspectives.

Super confusing
For such a large company to have such a confusing app is terrible. First, they reduce service to hard copy delivery. Then, they make the only option very difficult to operate. The kicker is that I’m FORCED to use this junk if I want any idea of what is going on in my community.

To many pop ups!
It is so difficult to read an article only to get 2-4 pop ups before you complete it. This is in addition to all the ads! Not worth it, spend the money on a full subscription.

Good local source
Good local source for news. Take a look almost daily. Would get five stars but for lack of local reporters and the app repeatedly kicks me off the subscription. Still, it’s an overall important source of local stuff.

Since iOS 14, app frequently crashes and attempts to access my account results in a trip to Limbo. I can’t access the news, but that didn’t stop my subscription rates from going through the roof!

Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but the e-edition Statesman Journal is not the same as it was. There are squiggles (don’t really know the correct terminology) on the right side interfering with reading. And when I try to enlarge the type the story switches to something else,another story.

I’m sorry but the Statesman is very slow getting the news to it’s subscribers. There’s things I hear about and check the online version and it’s mostly 1 or 2 day old news.

Very disappointing
I use the tablet version of this app. I guess you can say it works but not smoothly. When you touch a link to go to an article sometimes it will take you there but most times it takes you somewhere else. When you are in an article and there is an embedded link to continue on with the same thread it takes you someplace else. Very frustrating! I canceled my printed paper version to be able to read the Statesman Journal without the waste of paper but I guess I will have to either get the paper version again or just read USA Today online, that app works!

I really enjoy this app. I'm grateful for the news flashes I'm allotted to unless I SPEND 13$ A month. They allow you to see a few articles and i guess that's better than nothing. Whatever happened to the good old day's when news was so important? Now it's controlled. It's edited and than its edited again. Why did they feel it was important to tell me governor Kate Brown was bisexual, yet married to a man. I don't understand this world. Whatever happened to the good ol day's

I have been subscribing to the Statesman Journal for years, both paper, and now the app. I love that the app alerts me the minute something big happens. I am now a news junkie, and I love it!

First, I thought old news is all there is. Then, I saw that ALL article headings are arranged by oldest first and newest out of sight at the bottom of the scroll. No settings to change this weirdness. There are frequent surveys, but no hot links to the surveys, and no way to copy and paste the unlinked URL. So mobile app users can't vote! At phrase like "Go here for ..." is virtually never hot linked to anywhere. If you want to read news, you have to guess which subcategory of news the current top stories may be secreted within. The latest app version is slightly better than no app.
