Ratings and Reviews
Decent app but the auto play ads ruin it
The auto play ads in the app are loud and ridiculous. Doesn’t matter if you phone is on silent. They will play anyway. At full volume.
Decent app but needs improvement!
It's an OK app compared to some other newspapers but you have a ways to go.
You have big bold headlines to make it easy to read but when you go to the story you have small, light to medium gray type font on a white background. Come on! Get a higher contrast text to background and make the text able to be increased in size for those of us that are a bit older and don't always have our reading glasses with us. We're not all 21 year olds with perfect vision. Many of us are middle age and like technology as much as the younger generation. (The NY Times is great at this text feature, they have 3 sizes to select from and it's black on white, please take a look at their app and this feature).
I don't care for the way in which you have a story headline that leads to several links. I much prefer the one headline to one story so I don't have to navigate all over the place. I would have given more stars on the rating if you had better text control.
Nice to have local news, but no support for iPhone 4!
It's nice to have a place for the local headlines, but there are two major flaws with the app. First, the app doesn't support the new iPhone 4. ie. Multitasking support and higher resolution images. It seems very odd for a new app to just came out and be already outdated.
Also, the support of photos is very primitive. ie. why doesn't a photo take up the entire screen when you tap to view it? You can manually zoom in, but having t do that for every single photo is crazy.
Otherwise, I like how you pull down on the list of articles to refresh the page, and how the toolbars disappear when you scroll up and down in the story.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
