Great mobile newspaper app!

Buddy cat & Smokey

I normally will not read newspapers on line, but the Free Press app is really easy to read and find what section you want. This is the best newspaper app that I have and I definitely will keep reading it!
My complaint I'm now having is that the advice column is terrible - sometimes there aren't any new questions for days - my Oakland Press has new ones daily in Dear Abby....sigh!

The advice columns aren't any better....they disappear for days - what happens?.
I just changed the number of review stars to one...why, because again and again columns are disappearing, especially the advice columns!! I will close the app if this doesn’t clear up. This has gone on for days - I have been a Free Press reader for years and really like this app since we go to Florid.

Great for keeping close to home

I love reading the Freep and getting breaking news alerts, often before others are informed. Wish you'd list sports teams by alpha or some other logical order -- makes it look like you're playing favorites.

I Love "The Freep!"

Have lived out of state for 25-years but I REALLY miss my Michigan. The Freep keeps me in touch with what is happening in the Mit and with my sports teams. Still love reading Mitch Albom's article and glad he stayed with Detroit despite his fame. Keep up the good work and thank you for keeping me part of the D!
