OK, but could be stellar
The content is great. Denver Post gets a wide variety of local and national/global news.
The app is only so-so. I understand news is an ad-supported business, but as a subscriber, I'd like to be able to turn them off by logging in. Some of the sidebar links open a browser window and aren't integrated into the app. Some articles don't even display full text and instead force you to click to the source to keep reading. It really doesn't feel like a fully-functioning news app.
All that said, it does show me good quality Denver-area news coverage, which is why I get the Post in the first place. They could take some tips from other news apps though.
Terrible app. Use mobile web site instead
The redesign is welcome, and it is slightly more responsive than it used to be. But it still inexplicably thinks minor sports news ranks over state, city, and national news, and there's no way to re-rank it. You'd think any developer could figure this out after all these years. Use DP's mobile web site instead. It is reasonably well formatted and appropriately ranks content, even if you obviously miss out on alerts and notifications.
A fine example of why newspapers are dying off. For some reason local news from the print edition is hard to find. There is no National, State or Denver and the West news sections. Also no ability to search for anything and nothing is available very long. Overall a poor attempt at making the newspaper mobile.
