Much better than the previous version
This app for the Sun is leaps and bounds above the old version. Updated much better. No need to go to the website for Inland Empire news.

Read 3 articles free! Then pay to read.
App says free. Great. Downloaded. Read three articles, then got blocked by message stating to sign up free, no credit card required. So they want to gather a bunch of data on me? Fine, I guess that’s the cost of using digital businesses. I “signed up”. Got to read three more articles, with pop up ads by the way, and then got blocked by message saying I had to now pay to read. Wow. Bait, switch. Bait, switch. What’s the next hoop to jump through? I have a feeling that even if you pay to read, you still have to deal with constant pop up ads, etc. If constant ads are creating revenue, then why charge readers? I have a feeling this news outlet is going out of business soon. These business practices make this the type of app you delete within 10 minutes of download.

Okay, but what is the point?
The app has not crashed at all, like other reviewers mentioned in the last versions. However, some contents, eg. Classified, jobs etc. directly linked to the website and are not really optimized to this app. Maybe it has still been in a process of the development. At this moment, I'll go to the website directly, check the news of The Sun.

Worthless App
I bought a annual Sun subscription in 2019 & was happy with the online access & a physical Sunday newspaper. It was automatically renewed in late 2020 (no notification of any kind) but I was happy with it so I let it go. Not long after I was denied access to any type of news thru the app, and had to rely on a daily email with the online daily newspaper for news. I don’t want to read day old news! It’s really sad. Time to cancel.

I escaped from California a few years ago, and now enjoy lovely New Hampshire as my home. This app is very well designed, seems to be bug free (a rarity for a news app). The app offers excellent (and relevant) coverage of the Inland Empire. The content serves as a reminder of why I wanted to escape CA. To the app developers: VERY WELL DONE!

Awful App, Awful Writers.
This app is constantly force closing on me. Whoever is writing these articles needs to take a few classes in communications/journalism! There are numerous punctuation, spelling and grammar errors and the news articles never cover the content displayed in the news heading. Example - Current Breaking News: '4 reasons the latest CIA revelation is serious' 'The latest fight over America's spycraft has triggered serious constitutional questions. On the Senate floor Tuesday, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that the CIA searched computers used by Senate staff to investigate the CIA, confirming a story reported by the New York Times last week.' Um, what the heck writers? You people are morons.

Worst app on my phone.
The good news, I like the content. The bad news, the app is very very unstable. I only look at the Breaking News section. When opening a story, many times they won't load and it kicks me completely out of the app and I have to restart it. After that happens a few times. The app will no longer start and I have to delete it and reinstall.

Extremely unstable
The app has had a history of being unstable. The older version would crash when I would navigate to quickly. Which wasn't really quick at all. And this one after choosing an article. It needs a fix and fast because I live in the Inland Empire and would like to know what happens with the convenience of the app.

Used to be good
This ap used to be good however around December 4th 2013 the ap now requires a paid subscription. I don't plan to subscribe so I can't comment on whether or not there are annoying pop up ads or commercials that were in the previous version. I guess I'll have to go somewhere else for my news...

Not impressed
Quotations show up as a series of random characters, "breaking news" is usually 4+ hours old, half the "local" and "breaking news" links are empty, and only a fraction of the stories in the actual paper or full website are accessible via this app. Very disappointing.

Need to subscribe?
All of a sudden, I need to purchase a subscription in order to read any and every news article. Why change? Guess I'll be deleting the mobile app. No use takings up data space just to read the headlines, and not get the actual article.

Completely agree with previous ratings! This is typical Sun Telegram at it's best. They should change their motto to 'old news all the time!' But what do you expect? They have to read the news from other newspapers before they can post the news. Don't waste your time!

Just ok
Decent app. The articles aren't updated often enough. Keeping up with local events is important to me and this fulfills some of those needs.

Bad upgrade
Not very happy with the upgrade. Can't get any real news, and it's more difficult to navigate. I liked it better before. Uninstalling.

Horrible horrible app
This is the worst performing app I have ever used. It has never been updated and probably never will. Get a different news app. This one consistently force closes and shuts down...worst app ever...I'm un installing it now :)

App is terrible
I have no idea what section of the paper I am in. The ads pop up in unexpected places. I’m happy the sun has ads but the whole experience is so disconnected and hard to navigate that I am removing the app.

Same as last version
Old news all the time. The news is the same in every category. Why am I reading old local news in the Calif and National categories?

Can’t read any one article without at least two pop ups opening blocking my view. Forces me to close and it keeps happening. Useless as is.

False advertising
The app claims to be free which it's free to download but that's the extent of it. The app requires a subscription after the first day of use which the app does not tell you. Seems like a bate and switch advertising to me.

Now you need to sign up for a separate account etc just to read the news... Well pretty sure I am not the only one done with this app.

"Top News" is a joke.
It's not news if all you get are a headline and a couple of generic sentences. What's even the point of that section?

From First to WORST!
This use to be a great app. All I want is local news. If I wanted Regional news Id get the LA Times. I don't care about the San Gabriel Valley. I care about the IE.

Shorted stories
This app is terrible as none of the stories seem complete. Either that or Sun reporters think 3 lines are a story.
