News for Subscribers Only
I've used this app for over a year. This month (Apr 2015) the format changed (with no notice) so that only paid subscribers can read news stories. Non-subscribers can see headlines only. It was nice to keep up on local news, but guess I'll hope for another source for that now.
Also, the new format does not fix a problem that this app has had the entire time I've used it: it takes several minutes to load current content. So each time you open the app, it shows you the headlines that were there the last time you opened the app (perhaps 3 days prior). And then you wait several minutes for it to update. :-/
I've kept the app for now to use the live traffic map (helpful), but if I find another app for that purpose, I guess I'll delete it.
They started to charge to read the little news that occurs in Marin. I liked keeping update on my old stomping ground but your insane if you think I am paying for it, had to delete the app now that it's useless.
It's not free and pop ups are annoying
This app went from decent to worthless unless you are a subscriber. Don't waste your time download just search the newspaper on safari!
