Glad to have The Star Ledger App!
I and my husband are not New Jersey natives - I, originally from Oswego, NY, my husband, originally from West Chester, PA - however, due to a job with AT&T, my husband was transferred from northern Virginia to Morristown, NJ back in June of 1990. We eventually moved in November of ‘90 to a home in Sparta, NJ. We then eventually moved to a home in Flanders, NJ and spent a total of almost 29 years living there in New Jersey, 5 years in Sparta, almost 24 in Flanders. We, most of those years, got The Star Ledger, seven days a week. We have since moved to the Myrtle Beach, SC area and have lived there since the Fall of ‘19. I have used newspaper apps on my IPhone for the time we’ve lived in SC. The newest app I have on my phone is The Star Ledger’s and very happy I’ve gotten their app! It allows me to keep up with all things Jersey!

Intermittent digital service
I’ve been subscribing for the Star Ledger for year, but for the past 6 weeks I have been receiving inconsistent service. I have not been able to connect with my subscription at all for the past 2 weeks. I only requested a digital rendering of the Ledger. I do receive notification from my mobile devices everyday, but all I keep receiving is a demo and a way to start another subscription. I contacted the Star Ledger support group, and because my subscription is through iTunes they have no account for me. Apple/iTunes is receiving the monthly fee and is depending on the app developer and the Star Ledger to communicate and provide the necessary service. I’ve gone back and forth with the support staff of the Star Ledger, and the only way I can communicate with the developer, is through this review. I just want this issue resolved so I can continue my subscription with iTunes. Please respond.

New Version Doesnt Work
I have beed a long time digital only subscriber and had no problems with the Olive digital edition on the PC and later with the app when I got my first iPad. As with everyone else the new app doesn't recognize my user ID. I called customer service last Sunday and was told the new app had an unexpected glitch and I was given instructions as to how to view the paper with Safari, which I had figured out already and which is awkward. The most frustrating part of all this is the daily email from the Star Ledger telling me to view the paper in the wonderful new app. It would be much more appropriate to be sending us emails apologizing for the issue and advising a time frame for correcting the problem

Totally Non Functional
I realize that it was important to update the platform, but this roll out has so many glitches. Four days of trying to access paper with no success. I have read Star Ledger online for years since we live in Florida but still follow New Jersey news. Highly frustrating process with literally no response to email. Fix it now, or put it back the way it was!

Star Ledger app is terrific!
Love the way that it works! Mirror a hard copy then when you click on, or select, an article, it pops up in a nicely sized font that is very easily read. Even that font size was be made larger or smaller to fit he needs of the reader. The article is easily scrollable. There are too many newspaper apps where articles must be manipulated in multiple ways to be read. Not so with the Star Ledger. Thank you for having the best layout that I’ve seen.

Star Ledger Rocks
I really enjoy reading the Star Ledger on line. I can’t find news about New Jersey and my local area anywhere else. The format is a pleasure to read. I see a thumbnail of the printed version and when I click on an article, I get an easy to read version that I can read on my iPhone, iPad or desktop. I also read the New York Times but it’s on line format is not anywhere as good as the Star Ledger. The Stare Ledger is my best source of on line news.

Love the Star Ledger App
The digital edition is just like the paper! Makes it easier to read than other papers. I can email articles to myself and friends and a few times I’ve posted articles on Facebook. It’s also possible to email some of the journalists as well as a letter to the editor. I’ve been reading the Star Ledger for years and have had the digital edition for about eight years. Love it!

Unable to download certain issues
The previous iPad app worked great…why did you have to replace it with an inferior, broken app? Every few days I am unable to download an issue to read. Today is one of those days. I click 'download' and get the message 'preparing to download…..and that’s where is remains. If I close the app and try again, same thing happens. I pay to receive issues every day, yet several issues a month I do not get because of this inferior app. When are you going to fix this? Preparing to download

Love this app
Although I now live in Florida, the Star Ledger is my first read of the day - with my morning coffee. The app sometimes doesn’t work, which is why the four stars - but thank you, Star Ledger, for the online version that looks just like the real paper!!

Best way to get the news!
I have been using the SL app for years now and it is absolutely the best way to get the news! There are no annoying flashing ads to bother you and the straight forward copy of the paper is very enjoyable to see. I still get my Sunday paper delivered, but for the rest of the week, anytime, anywhere, I can get my Star Ledger like I always have!

Easy to use
Even though I still like to actually read the physical paper, the advantage to this app is that I can change the font size and also get the whole article in one place. This is very helpful for longer articles

The new version apparently wasn’t fully tested
The last version of the app worked just fine. This new version does not allow you to print any of the puzzles. The “official” workaround is to take a screen shot of the puzzle and print the screen shot. Really?! That’s the best they can come up with. Whatever happened to making sure everything works before you force a new version on your customers!

Better than NYtimes & Washington Post
Full pages with ability to see all articles avoid the group think of the other apps that push “most viewed” and other organized displays.

Hanging again
I read the Star Ledger on my iPad. I never had any problems with the old version of the app. This version is very annoying! Just when I sit down to read my paper, THE APP HANGS! Nothing I can do but try again the next day. The entire screen becomes non-responsive and I have to totally quit the app to try again. If I can’t download the paper why am I wasting my money on a subscription???

New version is a step backwards
The newest app version is not user friendly, and has taken away the ability to print and share from the app. In the previous app I was able to print the crosswords easily, now I have to screenshot and hope the size is big enough to read the clues. I’m giving it some time, but right now I’m less than pleased.

Love online Star Ledger
Best part of the Star Ledger is the free online edition. Allows me to share interesting articles & info with others, keep on my phone useful references, recipes, etc & read the paper while I’m away on a trip. Love it!!

Just like a newspaper
I like the touch and feel of newsprint. This on line edition captues that feel and give me all the new I expect. It’s format is better than the on line New York Times or the Washington Post.

Star Ledger
A well organized newspaper. Covers the local, state, national and world news. What else to say. We recently moved back to New Jersey. This is a better paper than we read in Asheville, NC.

First class app design
Design of app is superb. Star-Ledger itself is a very liberal, unabashedly pro-Democrat newspaper. Ignoring that, the comics are excellent and provides good coverage of local news.

This is a handy app for when the delivery is delayed, or when I’ve left before it gets delivered. I have not been able to access Morris county news section because only Essex county is available in this app.

Like on line Ledger
App is easy to use. The drawback is I can’t get the ocean county edition on Sunday. I would also like an interactive crossword puzzle so that I would not have to print them.

The worst!
Impossible site. It is a challenge to read the paper I receive 4 other digital editions. They all have better content and more of it. The NYTimes, USA Today, NYDaily News and The Philadelphia Inquirer put you to shame. I only bother with the Ledger for local news I am removing your app. Soon your home delivery will follow. You are in a dying industry, and you are helping it along.
