Ratings and Reviews
Is this a joke?
Do app developers actually use the apps that they create? This app has been a huge joke for the last 2 years I've been using it. It takes about 2 minutes to open an article after you click on it (doesn't matter if it's on my iPhone or iPad). In the middle of reading an article the app, like clockwork, the app crashes and closes. When you re-open the app to try to finish reading the article where you left off before it just randomly closes, it takes another 2 minutes to open. While you're waiting the 2 minutes trying to decide if it's just loading or if you didn't hit the article (since it just sits there doing nothing) you can't scroll or do anything since it's frozen while you're waiting for the article to open. I've dealt with crappy apps, but I have never hated an app so much that I take the time to write a review. This joke is just taking up precious space on my phone at this point. I hate it.
Deleted after 1 day
The IPhone app for the Macomb Daily is the worst news site I've visited. Every single time I tried to scroll through an article there was a vulgar photo of men at urinals with a phone number attached. If while scrolling your finger was anywhere near the ad you would automatically call the number. It happened to me 6 times while trying to read 2 articles. I could obviously end the call quickly but it is ridiculous that it was happening in the first place. Fix your ads and the placement of them and maybe I'd consider the app again but until that change is made there are plenty of other news sites I can use without worrying about calling a random phone number while browsing an article!
Need a magnifying glass
The developers must have used a big screen monitor when creating this app, they certainly didn't take into account the small screen size of an IPhone. The font on the home screen is so small I have to hold my phone right up to my eye to read anything, and I can't enlarge it. The articles on subsequent pages aren't much better. Not sure how this version passed any type of user experience testing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
