You Destroyed The App
This new app is awful. The same stories repeat continuously throughout the app as you move down the page.....The same pictures and stories have shown for weeks in the middle section. The previous app is something I looked forward to everyday but now I will probably jut be stuck with the expensive subscriptions for print addition I get. Very disappointed,.

Poor editing. A great example was the selection by the Front Page Editor
Our front page editor “stole” an expose’ story of guardianship administration run amok from the the ORLANDO SENTINEL, perhaps a “sister paper of the SF Sun Sentinel but who would know that because of SF’s editorial incompetence. I have practiced law, including guardianship law, for more than 45 years in Broward County, Fla. if our SF editor had bothered even to read the article, she would have known the story was an expose of guardianship administration run amok in THE ORANGE COUNTY AREA. The editor should be fired. How the SF SS ever won a Pulitzer Prize for riding the coattails of the Broward Public Defender’s Office to obtain otherwise confidential material is a mystery to me.

Terrible App
I’ve subscribed to the Sun Sentinel for years both in print and digitally. This app has never been good and has gotten worse. It crashes continually on an iPad running current iOS. And then there’s the editorial issues. The top news feed repeats the same stories over and over. The entire app makes it hard to actually read more than the stories that lead as you can’t reach them. I’ve typically used the enewspaper section to read the stories as they appear in that days paper but this function can be hit or miss, frequently requiring resubmission of password. It’s also sloppy with poorly maintained article links. Hey folks, look to The NY Times to see how a good newspaper app should operate

This app is awful
Not only is the user interface to read the e-newspaper awful, there are ads at the top which make the newspaper even smaller! And I’m paying for a subscription anyway! If I expand the page in order to read it better I can’t flip to the next page without pinching it down again. And then there are more ads! If I receive an alert and tap to read the article, I have to login every time! If I just open the app instead, I am already logged in. I could go on and on. I stopped subscribing to the sun-sentinel for several years, and will probably stop again once my new subscription deal is over. This experience needs a lot of work.

Online account
I cannot login to my account. Where is the login? It gives me limited articles that I can read. I love the sun sentinel. I just wish I could login so I can read every article. Thank you.

Doesn’t work on iPads
I enjoy accessing the SunSentinel on my iPhone and my MacBook Air. Unfortunately I cannot access the digital newspaper on my iPad Air or my iPad Mini. Both go to a page that says I’ve reached my limit and asks if I’d like to try a trial subscription. Unfortunately there is no option to log on to my account. All my devices are updated with the latest operating system. I keep hoping a new update will solve the problem. Surely I am not the only one that has this problem.

Horrible mobile interface. And tech support
I turned on notifications so I could get the latest news updates. Every time I click on the notification it’s loads this webpage looking screen where I am asked to log in every single time. I am already logged into the app with a subscription but the article doesn’t open when I click the notification. I cannot believe how bad this mobile interface is. I understand it’s not the NYT but still. Hopefully they can learn from other digital news providers and out out a platform where when you get a notification of a story it opens up the article in the app.

Trouble reading subscriber content
I've been a subscriber of the Sun Sentinel sir several years now. Since the pandemic you can really see the decline in the quality of the stories in the paper. My final staw is that the app will redirect the reader to their website to read an article. The article was tagged as "subscriber only", but the website does not recoginze my Apple App Store subscription. I contacted the app support via the app and they said they could not find my subscription. It's just not worth for it anymore. I'm out.

Disgraceful Newspaper
I’ve been reading the Sun Sentinel for many years and have found the paper slowly slipping into the abyss. The e delivery doesn’t work properly and the website is way behind the news. The print copy with its thirty some odd pages for a major market such as ours is deplorable. The financial section all of one page is ludicrous. Not being able to get late sports results is utterly ridiculous. The Sun Sentinel in its monopoly should give us the readers better. Even the digital newspaper leaves a lot to be desired. Shameful !

Paying for a subscription I can’t even use
The app and the mobile website are both poorly designed and for the past month I cannot scroll down past the headline of the article even though I pay for it. If I try to view in Safari, I have to hit reader mode immediately or else it hits me with a paywall and doesn’t accept my login (despite the login working perfectly fine on my laptop).

no landscape mode
I am no longer able to view my online Broward County online paper in the app in landscape mode on my IPad. It’s been this way for months I’m pretty sure, and it’s very stressful because I’m disabled and have my ipad in a folder so that it can rest on my lap in front of me. I can’t turn it and keep it resting upright in portrait mode to read this newspaper. All other newspaper apps realize we require landscape mode for our ipad except yours. Please correct the issue asap. Thank you.

Can’t Believe How Useless This App Is
Subscribed to read a story published yesterday. Typed in the exact headline. The site search engine can’t find the story (though Google can: the story is clearly there, behind a paywall to keep out non-subscribers, but undiscoverable to subscribers, too). Searched for the subject of the story (a local business) without the headline and got an end-of-year piece from eleven years ago. I’m more frustrated but no better informed than before I paid for a subscription.

Updated app format
The latest updated format of Sun Sentinel’s app has made it impossible to access all stories published under their designated topics/category. For instance, for stories published under “Local news- Broward County” instead of being able to scroll through all stories as in the previous app format, you are now limited to seeing only one published story for each sub-category within the app. This updated format has rendered the app as useless and not worth the monthly subscription fee.

I can’t stand tease articles that I cannot read because I do not have a subscription. They should be able to provide a maximum number of free articles per month. Most of the printed news is already old news since there are other ways to receive news. There is other online media, tv, or publications. Since I can no longer see any Sun Sentinel articles, that has cinched any possibility of a subscription in the future.

Terrible service
I’ve been paying for a monthly subscription but every time I use the app, I read a few news articles and then I’m told that I’ve reached my limit. Really? I’m being charged $8.00 per month for full access and I’m limited as to how many articles I can read? The app also opens the web browser and switches you out of the app and onto their webpage. The webpage asks me to subscribe. I never get to the article that I chose. Cancelled subscription. Fix the app.

I was traveling in Europe, enjoying reading the Sun Sentinel each morning. All of a sudden, I am asked “do I want to see the new, improved Sun Sentinel App”? Then it’s pops up, it does not work in Europe. !? I cannot get back to the old version, so,... tough luck. Poor planning

A Pulitzer Award Winning Paper
South Florida is lucky to have the Sun-Sentinel. It’s the best resource for local news. It also keeps an eye on local politicians and the goings on in Tallahassee. The editorial board and opinion writers are excellent. It’s important to support your local newspaper.

The South Florida SunSentinel has moved its focus too far left The editors only appear to be printing negative reporting regarding Conservatism. I would prefer a balanced approach between Progressive and Conservative reporting so I can make up my own mind.

Where is Night/Dark mode?
This news app really needs to get with the program and introduce a dark/night mode viewing option…like all other news apps. Also, since it only gets updated about once every three months (or more), it hasn’t updated the article viewing bug introduced by iOS 16.0.

App has a lot of bugs
I have been an online subscriber to the Sun Sentinel for over four years at 4.99 per month. At the least, at the very minimum, I have to delete the app every two months and reinstall it because it tells me I have reached my limit for reading. After four years you would think you would have this fixed by now. Very aggravating.

Biased Dishonest Fake News
The sun sentinel regurgitates political news from the dishonest associated press, and blocks relevant stories that don’t fit their liberal narrative. If you want to get real news, like the biggest presidential corruption scandal in history, involving Joe Biden and his depraved family look elsewhere, otherwise, you will remain forever and ignorant fool. I would even come confirm obituaries independently.

App interrupts more than a tired toddler
The app constantly interrupts any effort to read local news articles online. I am paying for the online subscription and the chaos of the reader's experience makes it a true "Florida App". The Miami Herald, the WSJ, and NYTimes work simply and logically and still manage to get the ads in.

Just stop using this app
It’s - well - awful. Articles appear twice on the page, too much emphasis on sports, and the most visually disgusting ads. The website or better yet, the newspaper in digital form that gets emailed to me every morning is a much better experience. I want to support local journalism - this app sorely tested my commitment.

New format
I am hating this new format for my daily Sun Sentinel paper. I am on vacation and have been going in circles simply to locate the Daily puzzle page. Too many ads, too many choices have turned me off from simply trying to access what I get in print daily. I change it to a half star review. Please simplify.

Unfortunately, trying to read this paper online is a joke. Old stories stay up front forever, the view page jumps to the bottom for no reason, the view won’t change to landscape, etc., etc. All they try to do is hit you with worthless adv.

The app should run smoother, but theres ads on the app even though I’m a paying customer??? I don’t get it, and they’re shady ads that are disingenuous and scam, I don’t want to see those, let alone when I pay for just the stuff I want. Low bar.

New App Drains iPhone Battery
The new app drains my iPhone battery. Ever since I updated, Sun Sentinel consistently uses over 20% of my battery—and that’s *after* turning off background app refresh for the app. This is excessive given how little I use the app relative to others. I’m close to deleting the app altogether.
