Excellent... Sets the Standard
I've been using news apps for several years and am no fan of an app which merely copies the printed, newsprint look and feel, (of which the News Sentinel also has such an app). If you want such an experience, simply read the real thing.
I recently downloaded this app and am quite impressed! It took no time to learn the navigation and now I'm zipping through, articles, features and news items like never before. This is how a news app should be designed!
My iPad has already replaced my computer, notepad, sketchbook, and other tools... now it's replaced my printed newspaper as well.
There is no point to this app. You cannot read anything without being a subscriber. Waste of space!!!!
