Easy to navigate
Easy to navigate. Play with the different features. Default settings are not easy on the eye of older people but if you spend just a little time you can customize it to your preferences

App is fine as is. Whatever updates that have been applied recently (then apparently backed-off...?) are poorly applied and obviously not “user tested”. Can’t get in directly, font and page is reduced so you have to expand to be able to read; if you print a crossword puzzle, again, the font is way too small. I mostly use the app on iPad or phone, as I think most users do, so test on a tablet and phone, not a desktop or laptop computer. (Yes, the web version using my desktop computer does work better...; even the crossword print) Overall, on-line customer service is completely non-responsive. Hopefully some standard IT practices will be applied to your development efforts in the future.

A very good newspaper!
I read the Patriot faithfully; have been doing so for a long time! PennLive is fine but I’ve been reading the paper for so long that I must have the e-paper. I could do without the obvious liberal bias; most of Central PA is conservative. We deserve at least a moderate tome. But what are we going to do?

New format
I hate the new format of the patriot news. It is hard to use an iPhone to keep up with all the news. There is no readily available section listing to look at specific topics. Not sure if I will renew when subscription runs out.

The Patriot News
Great newspaper, I have been a reader since the 1960’s. I remember the four and five star final editions at the great cost of seven blessed in your craft. A constant reader. I am George C. Luckette

Phone contact
Trying to contact the circulation department is difficult...called 4 different numbers...all disconnected....who do you call for missed delivery? If I don’t find a number soon I’ll have to call my credit card company to stop payment, then watch how fast they contact me!!!

Something Missing
I would love it if they could add in the coupons and weekly store flyers, that is what my wife and I are interested in the most!!! I can read the important news stories for free on many free apps!!!

Lousy app, lousy price.
I downloaded this app since the actual daily paper edition is being curtailed. But it leaves much to be desired. I did not buy the subscription but did view the sample edition. The electronic edition seems to be no more than a scanned edition of the actual paper. It is not sized to the ipad, so in order to view the whole page you have to drag your finger around the whole screen. This causes the page to constantly reload and it does so slowly. Often times this reloading caused the app to crash. Tapping on the next page should bring you to the top of that page. Most people who read down to the bottom of a page and tap the next page do not want to start that next page on the bottom of it. The thumbnail setting displays pages too small to be of any use. Instead of trying to force the newspaper onto a tablet they should design a layout that is built for one. I'm sure it would increase subscription rates. For a clean easy to navigate layout I think the NY Post nailed it. Until then I think I'll wait on this one. Update: At the beginning of the year this paper went from a daily publication to just 3 days (tu,th,su). But the subscription price remains the same for just 12 editions per month. Not worth $1.33 an issue. All other problems with the app are still the same too. Nothing changing with this paper.

Bait and switch
While the app's performance is sluggish for all the reasons noted by other reviewers, my complaint is with PN's "bait and switch". I still subscribe to the hard copy weekend edition. That entitled me to receive the electronic print editions for the Tuesday and Thursday editions... until sometime within the past few weeks. Now they want me to subscribe to keep receiving these two weekly editions. Sorry, but the value proposition isn't sufficient to warrant me forking over additional money. I believe I'll also not be renewing my subscription for the weekend edition after that subscription nears the end of its term.

Horrible App
I subscribed for one month and almost immediately canceled. App does not open cleanly nor recognize your subscription until you go through various screens advising you to subscribe. After cancelling these out you get to the digital paper which many days only has a partial paper. Terrible app.

Major space hog
Consumes gigabytes of space if you don't monitor it carefully. I've selected the setting to store only three editions offline but, at last count, there were 29 editions in storage taking up about 1.5GB.

Bought subscription, no paper!
Bought subscription through app store, it worked for 1 day. Now every time I start the app I am prompted to buy a subscription. I cannot access the paper. I call cust. Support at the Patriot. They say it is not their problem. DO NOT BUY A SUBSCRIPTION THORUGH THE APP STORE.

Bug fix required
The Harrisburg Patriot News app opens to the home page of the Omaha World Herald on Apple iPad. The Patriot News has difficulty delivering the physical paper on a regular basis and the app was always a backup. Now they can't even deliver the digital version.

Failed to Load
After recent iOS update this app would not load any version of the Harrisburg Patriot-News. It did load the Omaha edition which does nothing for me here in Harrisburg, PA. I. Did get a message 'No feed found'.

PN app online terrible
This should make someone ashamed. It is slow, sometimes will not load, is very, very, very slow to resolve. This app is so bad it will not even take my review about how bad it is.
