We have been using this app for years on other devices just fine. We have not had problems with it except for one line of phone. Let me explain, we had a iPhone 6 in which the app would crash when trying to do anything in the app. The phone itself was replaced and restored and again did it on the new phone. This phone is being used by a older lady who has no other things on this phone. When your app crashes we have tried reinstalling it and it does the same. We have tried to hard reset the phone and it again does the same thing. When we install on a separate device it works just fine. Please advise!!
This version may be more usable on a phone screen, but it's definitely "two steps back" on my iPad. It no longer works in landscape mode, which in itself is a reason to no longer use this app. And now the visuals overwhelm the text in a way that make it much harder to scroll through and find stories. It seems more appropriate for a TV news channel than a print newspaper. Edit: I forgot to add that this app also fails to display, you know, actual news articles. When I click on a banner (i.e. "headline"), the resulting article screen is devoid of any content.
On iPad I can’t use landscape mode. I can’t even access my account settings. “Settings” only lists how often you want notifications. There is no customer service link. I’m pretty sure this doesn’t even show access to the entire paper, as I’m viewing this on a Sunday and there is no Sunday Celebrations link. The Courier is making it as hard as possible for people to want to subscribe to their paper.
I have been reading the Paper since I was a little boy now I’m 70ish and this is the craziest Most difficult app I’ve ever used The courier is chasing away there customers. I’m paying good money to read your digital paper and it’s harder to get in then going through an Air port with a pocket full of change. Please fix or I’m going to stop trying or die one of these days
Let's just say, every time WCF updates their app, more advertisements become present and in a more obnoxious way. My suggestion, ignore future updates for the app or just download something different altogether.
They took away the ability to view the "call the courier" section among other sections. That was the only way to access that section from a mobile device as I can't browse to it through the website as it keeps going to the mobile site where it doesn't exist. Also the link for app support goes to an area of their website that doesn't exist.
No longer allows viewing obit's for free. This one part that should be considered a free section. Shouldn't have to pay for something like keeping up on this item. This my only way to keep up on this section. The price of subscription is to expensive. Seems to go down a lot!!!
Sorry, but I don't really think so. Especially since the families of the deceased are already paying to have them published in the first place. And "Call the Courier"...? Nope. At least the web site lets me answer a few survey questions in order to see the "premium" content!
But not much! Poorest excuse for a newpaper app I have ever seen. Functionality is designed only for a phone. No real story lines. Only a very few articles. Why can't they make a real news app instead of this pathetic piece? Lee Enterprises could do much better!
