Great way to read what's local

This app is a great way to see what's on local by a local paper. Highly recommended. As an addition it would be very useful if this app included a better what's on we're & when, boot sales, table top sales, scouts, cubs, kids clubs, and anything else that not only gets the kids out and away from their phones/computers etc but for the adults also. Always get the story after it happens but would prefer pre event info first. Great paper though.

Very impressive

I came upon this accidentally in the app store. Having been born at St Marys and lived in Portamouth and Gosport, I downloaded it in expectation. Well, maybe it surprised me. The full Daily paper, with adverts and classifieds, was not what I expected.
Also, back issues are also available.
This is a great app for Pompey people and Pompey supporters.
Definitely recommended. At the moment it's free.
I wonder if and when there's a charge - will it be reasonable?

Remember the news

Nice app, very much like the paper version on the app, seeing all those little bits and pieces you missing on the website version. Works well on the iPad. Well done to the News
