I drop the newspaper when you got rid of Glenn McCoy. Also, do not cover near the high school sports as you used to. It got to the point where I could read the entire newspaper within five minutes. Certainly not worth the cost. I decided just to read a few things online.… I still get the Post-Dispatch. Sad days for BND.

A little upset!

I have had the BND app now for about 2 years. Out of the blue this morning while I was scrolling through and reading the news, the message that was displayed on my screen is that I’ve read all my free stories for the month! I absolutely love this app because it keeps me up to date on news in my area and the nation. But how can I read or enjoy this app when I’m being told this now?

Huge step Back!

Not only do you now have to go through many more steps/screens before you can actually read the paper, it doesn’t remember any of the login information. As an ongoing subscriber, I should not have to enter my login credentials every day.
Too many extra add panels in ite way of the paper.
