Ratings and Reviews
Has no search function!!
Developers boast that in the new version (7.3) you can embed a “Scribble live post,” whatever that means, but God forbid you need to search for a headline that you saw in the print edition so that you can have a link to forward to a friend. There appears to be no search tool whatsoever. What kind of a text-based news app doesn’t have a search tool? A very lame one.
Poor scrolling, constantly interrupted by ads. Hard to find specific articles. Overall very difficult to use. If it weren't only source for local news, I'd never use it. How can this be so bad, with Silicon Valley location of parent Merc News?
Ads play sound in articles
Amazing, just go to the mobile site where chrome and safari trim out the crap for you.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
