Ratings and Reviews

Poor design and intrusive advertising

tdk248

I’m glad my local newspaper has provided an app for their top stories, but in its current state, using it is too much of a hassle for me. The main problems are:

1) The news stories don’t refresh automatically. You need to tap a *tiny* button to load the most recent news stories, and this tiny button is right next to a banner ad. Most of the time my phone thinks I was trying to tap the ad and opens that instead of refreshing the news. This button needs to be bigger, and spaced further apart from other content.

2) Sometimes ads just open up of their own accord. I still don’t know what triggers it, but once it begins happening, every time I open this app, it automatically opens a Safari window with an ad and closes the GT app. I can only fix it by force-closing the GT app or rebooting my phone.

3) The app was clearly designed for older iPhones and has never been updated to support the newer models. It doesn’t use the full size available to iPhone 5 and later, and it also uses low-resolution images which look awful on iPhone 4 and later.

Good, but too few stories

I like how clean this app is and how well it responds, however, I wish I could access more than just the most ten recent local stories. Also please put more tabs like entertainment and local.

I like being able to see the related assets on the most recent update. Overall, there's more content on the newer app.
