  • New and improved isn’t

    By Nelliemargaret
    Maybe I can get somewhere if I review. I’ve sent three emails regarding how impossible it is to read the Bee with the new app. No reply. The new app is awful. Fuzzy pages, pages that disappear and the list goes on and on.
  • New format horrible

    I used to look forward to reading The Bee each morning on my Ipad. The “improved e edition” makes enjoyment impossible. Much less viewable space. Unable to zoom in on stories I want to read. Moving up and down on a page is a struggle. Gonna stop my subscription. I was growing weary of the obvious left slant anyway.
  • Frustrated!!!

    Bring back the old edition! I have spent 30 minutes trying to open today’s paper! Still nothing, tell me why I should continue my subscription???
  • Waste of time

    This app used to be great however now I can't even use it. I can see the list of articles under each section but if I click on any article it opens but then gets blocked by a pop up saying I reached my limit and need to have a subscription to login and continue reading. REACHED MY LIMIT....I have not even read one article so their limit is ZERO. If you only like headlines but not reading articles then you will love this app. With news available for free from other apps & from a multitude of online sources I'm gonna pass on their subscription and free up some wasted space on my iPad by deleting this app.

    I have been reading the paid E-edition of The Modesto Bee for several years using this highly rated app. But at the beginning of October 2019, something happened. Something bad! This newest version of the MODBEE app is the absolute worst I’ve ever encountered. Is there is some hidden feature somewhere that allows us to once again view each page full-screen rather than having to share the screen with a random and very annoying advertisement at all times. Unless something is done to make this new version of the E-edition of The Modesto Bee more reader friendly, I see it as just another step towards the demise of my primary source of local news in my community. I will happily change my review to 5 stars if steps are taken to bring it back to the way it once was?
  • Bad format

    I am a truck driver! So when I travel out of state and I need to get news of what’s going on in Modesto , I go to the Modesto bee app and get my latest reports of what’s happening in my town , I drive 38 states and sometimes I’m away from home up to a week and a half !! It is a great app to have ! Thanks “ Modesto Bee “
  • Horrible app, and horrible reporters

    By BLacK-HaRTz
    Could be better coverage of modesto and surrounding areas . It now asking me to subscribe and log in. No longer am I able to read the news without having to log in and I know it will be useless if I create an account: As others stated, they have accounts and receive nothing but pop ups and spam, so I’m definitely not going to subscribe.... ever.... Going to stick with bigger news outlets such as cnn, channel 4 Kcra and yahoo news... as for around me, If it’s important, it will be talked about on channel 3....
  • All the news I need to know!
