Forced to pay to read articles

Wyoming Goldprospector

I use to be able to read as many articles as I wanted which was hardly due to the lack of new content and after doing a recent update which I hardly ever do, you are now limited to a couple of news articles and then forced to pay to continue reading the news. I would rather deal with advertisements than pay for not the greatest news service for Alaska. This isn’t the NYTimes, the articles are poorly written and at times have misspellings, plus there are never any new news articles, it’s mainly old news that’s been around for the past year. Which is one of the reasons why I hardly ever open this app. I will be deleting this app and will be sticking with the only other 2 Alaskan news apps.

Alaska Reporting


Not just Anchorage, but statewide coverage. News of interest to the circumpolar regions and not necessarily lower 48. With all their financial troubles, it's amazing this state wide paper still can pay for good reporting. Least we can do is support it through this app. Buy a digital subscription. Otherwise, local news will be buried and important issues hidden or overlooked. The app itself functions as it should, at least on the iOS platform.

Good, needs comments


New interface is fine, but there still no ability to see or access the comments left by other readers. You can only do that on their site. There’s not even a link at the end of the story to take you to the site to see the comments.
