Ratings and Reviews
Lists several categories but some are not available.
No national or world news but that is not really a surprise since the Freeman itself has so little world news.
Below is a negative review that I previously left. I just loaded up version 2.0. It seems to work 1000 times better. The articles load much faster and the amazing thing is that they ALL load. The articles are also available off line. Thank you developers. You have done a much better job on version 2.0.
Tried it in July and it would not load the articles. It shows all of the headlines, weather, and articles but when you click on them it never connects to their server. Tried it again today. Figured they worked out the bugs. No such luck. Same problems. Doesn't work on my iPhone, my friends iPhone or my iPad. It's no wonder these guys are claiming bankruptcy for the second time. They want to go digital but don't seem to know how.
Was fine until recent update
The Daily Freeman app was always a great app, always a great place to find good local news and what was going on in the area. The videos were easy to get to and played smoothly.
I downloaded the update a few days ago (three or four). The new app is not very user friendly or smooth- they're trying too hard to look like other big news apps when they were perfectly fine already!
Now when I attempt to start the app, I get the start up screen....then, it crashes. This has happened for the past day or two.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
