Ratings and Reviews

Latest release requires sign-on every time app is started


I’ve been generally happy with the BND application to read the morning paper. This last release requires that I enter my email address and password each time I enter the BND application. Thinking there was a problem, I deleted the app and reinstalled it, and the behavior was the same. Link for support for the BND application fails. I’ve noticed the BND Web application now also requires sigh-on every time it is accessed, so I have to assume that the Belleville News Democrat has determined that storing the login credentials in the application is less desirable than a convenience for their subscribers.

What a mess!

The latest update is horrible!! The app crashes, the number of ads has increased and the app requires me to sign in every time I open it. It's frustrating. I've called customer service at least three times and have been offered no meaningful help. The bugs were not worked out before the release and new is definitely not improved. Disappointing. It's been almost three weeks and I've been told they know there are log-in issues and they are working on them. There's this thing called beta testing .......use it!



Got to tell you I've always thought BND slightly behind. But this new mobile version on my iPad is awesome. Very impressed. Very easy to read, zoom in on articles. Good going guys. Keep up the good work. !!!
