Videos are all ads

Every time I have tried to watch a video whether it be a sports video or a local news video, I have to watch commercials at least 4 ads and sometimes I never get to watch the video. I finally get frustrated and leave. I was trying this because we gave up our paper version(never had time to read it) but I think I’ll go back.

It works, but is worse than browser

Ben Voris

It’s a step down from using the browser.

Just two: are no search, and the way it jumps to the top of the home when you toggle between apps.

Unfortunately, the Statesman does a bad job on their RSS feed and most stories are from outside the area.

New app not user friendly


Please go back. This app has poor navigation.

Also, help desk could use an upgrade. The nice person I spoke with didn’t know how to pronounce “cache” and couldn’t figure out how to get today’s edition to come up. Btw, it was 8:00am and my app was still showing yesterday’s edition.
