Ratings and Reviews
Great mobile newspaper app!
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!
Line Dancing Grandma
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 Florida.
This app is getting worse and worse! Is there a reason why certain sections are not updated daily! I will no longer recommend this app to my snowbird friends from the Detroit area - please do not ask me to rate this app again unless you’ve fixed this problem!
New Clickbait Headline Style Stinks
The new way the headlines are being written is awful. It makes it sound like a bot trying to garner clicks instead of an actual newspaper headline. This isn’t BuzzFeed, they should write like it.
The app is fine in general to use. I wish the night mode wasn’t buried so deep in the UI or could be put on a timer with the sun. It’s easy to change the font size which I did once ever, but annoying to change to dark mode every night and back in the morning.
I love everything about this app....except for one strange issue. I can go to any sport and get up-to-date news with one exception. When I click on Lions it’s stuck on the news from Nov. 29th. Tate is saying the Lions have to win the rest to make the playoffs.
I have deleted the app and reinstalled it, but it still sticks on Nov. 29th. How can this be fixed?
