Ratings and Reviews



It’s always great to have local news on your phone!

Used to like this app...

Bailey Peadro

I have used this app for several years, loved being able to read the news on the go. Then, someone changed a bunch of stuff around. Now most of the articles are about sports. Then, I couldn't read the obituaries or any other sections because I wasn't a "premium member" (or something like that). The last straw was the last time I opened the app. I couldn't open anything or scroll because every three seconds, an ad would try to pop up. I got frustrated and deleted the app. Now I just buy the paper or watch the news. Worthless app.

So so


It tends to freeze, lag, or shut down. I'm assuming, it's because of the forced ad pop ups. Other than that it seems to be a great app, when it works.
