  • Deleting editions

    Newest version doesn’t seem to have an option for deleting old editions which takes up too much storage on my ipad! HELP!
  • Updated Review

    By Keith80
    Got an email from the developer today saying the ad bug has been fixed and to update my review. Well, it hasn’t. Ads keep popping up making you lose your place in the feed. And it’s especially frustrating since the old app worked so well and the devs broke it probably because someone wanted the ad structure more prominent. Come on, this is a simple news app, how much effort does it take to get it right?

    Updated app today and nothing works going to cancel subscription if not corrected
  • iPhone X Continues to Crash

    I am unable to read any articles due to app failures/crashes upon startup. I have cancelled my subscription as a result and will not renew until this is fixed.

    The way this App works is just stupid. You download and get to read 4 or 5 articles. Then you get a pop up that says you have read all free articles and now you can subscribe for a subscription. That’s not happening. Just let me download the App and read daily without the pop ups. You really don’t have enough news here to warrant paying.
  • Ill attempt at an app

    By Homer Pickens
    I continue to try this app about every 3 months to see if it has improved. It’s a total waste of time. It’s consistently buggy! Shuts down consistently for no apparent reason. Don’t bother with it.
  • Junk

    By xxsxcxzcsc
    Riddled with bugs. Cant open with a pop up. Same problems on multiple devices. I have a print subscription and the online version still limits me and is always asking me to re-sign in. Makes it to difficult, time to drop both.
  • Crashes frequently

    By SLMUFN1
    App crashes. Only a few free articles. I wouldn’t spend a dime to read more articles.
  • Works great

    By Tnp1011
    Have had no issues with the app for months. Great job resolving the problems
  • New changes

    Very poor quality. Screen constantly jumps around when scrolling. Advertising. implementation very poor and makes the app worthless. Why am I being forced to view intrusive adds in an app I am paying for?? Might be loosing a long time subscriber after this debacle.
