App Reviews

  • Poorly designed app

    By a girl from OH
    This app is frustrating as it continually asks for you to log in. I log in and have to keep logging in. NOT WORTH THE FRUSTRATION.

    I enjoy my newspaper every day but I also enjoy reading articles online. The app is easy to maneuver through and I can easily find information
  • NA app

  • App is great delivery not so much

    By Twilight mom of 3
    Being able to have the advocate at my finger tips is great. I enjoy the paper itself too, but the delivery is always in my flower bed... otherwise I would give it 5 stars.

  • How I stay up on my community

    By cjp635
    I use this app to stay up with the news in my area. Between school and work, I don't have a lot of time to sit and watch the news. This keeps me up to date. My only complaint is that they need to report more of what happens rather than the sensational. They recently had two shootings in one day and only reported in depth on one. The other was in my area and it is important to those of us living in the area to know what is happening around us.
  • Don't get this app.

    By Paramedic Mike
    I hate this app. I fill like I can get more off Facebook and be more up to date.
