Crashiest app
Love the content, but it's guaranteed to crash at least once while trying to read the columnists. There is no error message, broken link notice, or anything if a link is bad. The app just crashes. And the video popup ads are beyond annoying. I read this first thing in the morning, and do not like being involuntarily subjected to a video ad with sound. Otherwise, it's fairly easy to navigate, and does what it is supposed to do. So, three stars. Get rid of the crashing and pop ups, and I'll bump to 5.

Just a few things
I personally think this app performs well. I read that it crashed for a lot of people in the reviews but I haven’t had this experience. I would suggest adding a search bar so myself and others can search for our favourite columnists and/or revisit articles. I also would like to see that when I click on the columnist section that I get a list of the actual writers rather than simply a bunch of articles like a repeat of the home page. I’d like to read the writer bios and see their articles in one spot. Other than those two things, this app is good on updating daily and making sure its readers get the news they want.

Too much crashing
And now two days in a row none of the articles open. Just going to delete the app at this point. Updated to say: now it crashes on the main screen if you just try to scroll? Are you ever going to attempt to fix this app?? I enjoy reading articles and commentaries on this app. What I don't enjoy is that certain commentators writings cause the app to crash. Consistently. There are several writers that no matter when you click on their article (new one, old one, doesn't matter), the whole app crashes. If an article gets removed from the website it sometimes still appears on the app and just gives an error message. Content-wise, a good app for those interested in politically conservative commentary. Technical-wise, needs work.

Please get an editor for the articles!
Good material. Seems fair (not blindly for Trump - some good hit pieces on him as well as on the left). But for Pete's sake, could someone please edit the articles before they are published? Nearly every article regardless of the author (and that is no exaggeration) either has grammatical errors, misuse of wording, or misspelled words. One would think they would want to put their best face on their work...

Excellent Informative News
Townhall will now be my go to place for the latest controversial news. It is defiantly very informative with it knowledgeable staff writers6. The only problem is they need basic programmers to reformat application compatibility’s for noble devices. It is much easier to read articles from standard website on a traditional computer or laptop, but not their iPad or iPhone application. I see Townhall is still running on 1.0 version.

Great app! Thought provoking content
Every day you will find intelligent commentary on on the news events and people who effect ( and sometimes infect) our world. It's refreshing to have a place to go where perspective is not presented as "news", but is openly and honestly offered as opinion.

What’s with the HUGE, magnified type-set
Have been a reader for years via on-line TH website. Downloaded the app recently to my iPadPro & iPhone. App works fine on iPhone; on iPadPro the print is not scaled to the device, nor with any utility function to shrink/rescale. It is so huge that you are constantly having to utilize vertical and horizontal slider bars just to read an article/commentary.

VIP access
As a VIP member of Townhall, I like to access that content. However, neither the iPhone app (iPhone 11 Pro) nor the iPad app (12.9 iPad 5th generation) allows me to log in to my VIP account. Even if I try to access that content by trying to in through a browser instead of through the app, I am unable to log in.

Crashes & no comments functionality?
This app crashed within 5 minutes of my download. Also, where is the ability to comment on articles or stories. There are problems with the comments functionality on the website, too. I love Townhall & was even one of the founders of my local area meetup group several years back, but this app & the website need a lot of work.

Is this going to get fixed?
The app now crashes when you open it up. For about the last 3 days it will open, but you couldn't open any of the articles. Quite a few times, trying to open the lead/top story & only the story below would open. I love the website & content, just wish it was easier to access on the app/phone. Update: sometimes you listen & get the app to work, most times not. I still hold out hope for this site.... When are we going to be able to view & add to comments on the articles? Update: again crashing when opening app. Can't even view an article. I'm convinced you don't really want mobile readers. I have zero time to read on a computer. So, you'll lose loyal readers like myself.

Update needed.
Please. Please! Please!!! Update this app. I use it daily but I'm tired of it crashing all the time. Great website, articles, columns and content. I love Townhall but I expected much more from Salem. Definitely would update to 5 stars if Salem took the time to do an update.

Too many ads and login broken
I tried this app but there are too many noisy ads that pop up. I just want to read the news without slot machine noisy game ads pop up. Very distracting especially in a waiting room. I also thought creating a log in would help. Not so. It kept asking me to log in so I figured I needed a new password. Nope password reset did not work. I deleted this crappy app.

Freezes up all the time
Ever since I upgraded to IOS9 the app freezes up all of the time. Cannot use it all. No problems before IOS9 Title: All messed up IOS. 13.1.2. is all messed up. The article supporting the headlines is all out of proportion. Can only become close to readable in landscape, and then it is too large of a font to read. I always use the vertical, but cannot see but a few words. Virtually not usable. Too bad, I used to like Townhall.

Too many ads
Downloaded this app and liked the content, but the ads are constant and you can’t even finish an article without being frustrated with the format. I gave it a week of reading and just deleted it this morning. A shame, but greed ruins the original intent of untainted news. Read TH on their website, it is much easier.

What happened?
I have been a fan of the website for years, and when I found the app I started using it every day! I loved it even though I could never get the "all columnists " section to work. For a couple of months now it crashes whenever I try to open an article or column. I literally have not been able to read a single thing for weeks!

This is ridiculous! This app used to be great but every time I search for an specific columnist it crashes. This is not a new issue...this has been going on for THREE YEARS!!! I've deleted the app and reinstalled it on three different devices and it's the same crap each time. You know, it appears you all are using the same IT Support contractor Hillary used to make her private server secure. Get it together!!

Crash and freeze
Unreliable app Crashes a lot . Click in a link to a main story the app often fails to open the story. Instead there is either a full page as you are forced to view for a period of time or a horizontal bar displays which essentially makes app and stories useless. Too bad a good news service has a poor performing app.

Annoying Advertisements
I really "used" to enjoy the site however after putting up with the constant pop-ups and "dazzling" ways of pushing advertising in front of your face, I gave up and went back to the dot com site. At least there I can control the advertising somewhat.

The desktop web site has links to cartoons. This app has no menu for cartoons that I can find. This forces me away from the app and to a desktop and a browser. Maybe there’s an explanation but I don’t use the app that often because is lacks other features of the website.

Or not loading to begin with. I’ve done a hard restart a few times, and have also deleted/reinstalled a few times. All it does is keep trying to open to no avail. Not worth the aggravation. Time to move on

This is an update to a previous review. Love the content, but I can't read any of it because the app crashes so much. Has been this way for months. At some point you need to fix the app. Hard to believe but it's actually gotten worse over time. The app is pure garbage, don't bother downloading. Just go to the website.

I like what TH has to offer. It is a fresh break from leftist propaganda. But they should fix it so one can comment on columns in the app, instead of having to open it up in Safari.

Columnist link crashes. . .
Despite other complaints that are quite old, Townhall has never bothered to fix this problem. Click All Columnists, then click a letter of alphabet. Crash. I'm not wasting my time anymore. I don't know why the columnists put up with this.

Terrible app. The ads work better than the links to articles do. 99% of the time, if u click on something, nothing will happen. There are more bugs in this app than in Hilary clintons tw@t. Fix these problems please so I won't have to watch the crappy liberal news on tv. Thanks

Are you going to update the app to work with iOS11??? You continue to advertise the app on the website but as you should know, it won't work when people update their iPhones/iPads with the new iOS.
