  • Terrible App

    By DLG58
    I continue to get error downloading edition database messages. It has been doing this off and on for the past few months. I deleted the app and reinstalled it just to get the same message. I’m getting tired of paying for a digital subscription I can’t use half the time.
  • The screen hops all over the place...

    By SusiesQueue
    I have given up on this app which is a shame because I want to support print journalism. Why, oh why, does the screen hop all over the place. It’s impossible to scroll down because it hops all over before I can read the articles. Do you load different parts of the story at once or are they delayed? Hop, hop, hop.
  • WHY???

    Soooooo much wasted potential!can not tell if it is ignorance, laziness or incompetence. This app just keeps getting worse. Is it really the best that Gannett can do? Scary if it is. I want so much to like this app, but in all the years they have had it, it has never become a quality app. Wish I could say something good about it.
  • Actually NO STARS

    By iMallears
    Even if you have an account you can't get access. Try to log in and it tells your account is associated with this but it won't let you see the pages.
  • White screen

    By Iowachica
    I cannot find any way to contact the developers to report this issue, so I will try here. The editions page is just a blank screen with the letter "a" on it.
  • Useless

    By Stonermc2003
    Never actually worked. You put in an email address and basic info but can't log in. It really is the worst app I've seen in a while!
  • Bad##!

    Bad to sell something that does not work.
  • Doesn't Open

    By SERP #1
    I registered my name but could never get it to open. If it's a pay thing, at least take me to a pay screen so I can buy it. But it just spins for a few seconds and just sits there.
  • Rendering & download

    By gdahlby
    Letter spacing is often messed up. Occasionally links to other pages where articles continent are incorrect or stop after one link even when article runs three or more pages. Today's edition download started with page A5 not A1 with no option to reload the edition.
  • Great improvements

    By Harlan Reader
    I have always liked this app because I like to read in a traditional newspaper format, but I was frustrated by it's slow responsiveness and frequent crashes. Love the new changes! It is faster, hasn't crashed at all, and is much more responsive to page changes. Makes reading the morning paper much easier and more enjoyable.
