New update not working
With the new update I have not been able to use the app. It opens to a black page then shuts down.

Even though I’ve been a snowbird in Polk County for almost ten years, I have learned so much more about the area since starting to read the Ledger! Time and money well spent … especially since we are now Florida residents!!!

The Ledger is a 1st class Newspaper!
I’ve lived in Miami, Tampa and Atlanta and their newspapers are not any better than the Lakland Ledger! Our local paper is precise, accurate and informative!

Great reporting
The Ledger has a good stable of aggressive and objective reporters. They, alone, deserve five stars. However, the Opinion Director drags the paper down to a three. His editorials are biased and contain many factual inaccuracies.

Needs Huge Improvement
Barely functional with too many “click” ads for worthless products. Not user friendly. Am worried about what information they are trying to get from my phone. Not any identity protections at all. Many questionable settings with no explanations.

Old news
When I open the app, the news is 3 days old. I get an email with new stories but when I open the app I have stories from past issues.

Like breaking in to Fort Knox
This is among the most prohibitive apps I have ever attempted to access. Subscrbing took dozens of attemps, including phone calls, over six days. Now that I have it wants to prevent me from seeing anything and won’t recognize me. It’s a news prevention app.

Quite Useful - Still Needs Improvement
The Ledger app works much better than the generic browser app. But, there are a couple of bothers. First, if you rotate the iPhone the item you are reading goes back to the top. Also, the text size seems to revert to the dafault. I would like even a little larger text. The syndicated columns and comics aren't available. that's OK for a free app. I subscribe to the Ledger's eReplica service for the PC and can read the comics and columns in eReplica. Hopefully, a good eReplica app for the iPhone will be coming.

The Ledger
Not the highest quality of journalism since becoming a USA affiliate, but we do get all the print news and, even more importantly, the 4 daily puzzles are excellent.

Great Free App
Just downloaded this app. Easy to use. Did not have to register. Love the Ledger, already a subscriber but this app allows me to take the news with me conveniently. App features allow settings for favorites etc. Thanks for the app.

It’s a local newspaper app without local news
The new update, and the last several tbh, have made this app useless to me. I go to the ledger for LOCAL news. I got to the national news for NATIONAL news. Tell me about our community. I don’t go to the ledger to hear about riots in Europe. I want to know about the house fire around the corner, the community fair in Bartow, the farmers markets around our community. Make local news your focus and I would love this app. As of now? I will probably delete it. Sad way to go out...

Just awful 😠
The new app is a big disappointment. It seems as though the Ledger wanted to make change for change. The new app does not allow moving from article the article as the old App did. It is much more confusing to use than the old app was. It seems as though someone was hired to change the App and did so to justify what they were getting paid. Very disappointed - The old app was not broken – no need to have tried to fix it!

Excellent News Source
Having family and friends who reside in central Florida, I use the Ledger to keep me up to date on everything happening in central Florida. The news is current, accurate and non-opinionated which I find refreshing.

Worst app I have seen
I can barely give this app One star! I am a fully paid annual customer and it continues to tell me that I have read all my free articles. I have to continually close it and re-down load it. Get on the stick Ledger.

Constant Problems
I am continuously getting locked out of my account on my iPad after reading three articles in spite of having a full print subscription. I’ve deleted the app and reloaded it only to get locked out again. Very frustrating.

Good grief
Connection issues, ads are again WAY too intrusive, both at the bottom of the screen and when attempting to read an article. This app is obviously just an advertising vehicle without any regard for readers. Just give me the news. It's off my iPhone.

Needs work
Reading is cumbersome and approximately once a week the app looses my subscription so it has to be deleted and reinstalled. I like reading the local paper, but it is a pain to deal with.

Slow to load
I would like it better if it had separate sections for national, state and local rather than "top stories". Too many duplicates in various sections.

Won't load
This would be a really great app if I didn't have to constantly delete and reinstall it. After I've used it a few times it stops working. If they can manage to fix this then I'd rate it 5 stars...

App From Hell
This is absolutely an app from Hell. The incompetence of the Ledger in inflicting this app on its readers is surpassed only by its incompetency in reporting the news. Constantly locked out and must delete and reinstall. Sometimes that works but app never recognizes print subscription.
