A Workmanlike App, But I Check It Every Day


Love McClatchyDC’s articles, and this helps me consume more of them because they’re now conveniently on my mobile device. I just wish there was a “search” feature or maybe an “award-winning articles” tab to help me explore more McClatchyDC content and maybe some of the back catalogue. This app is really simple, with no frills. It does what it needs to do and, for the most part, it works just fine for me.

Landscape problem


The last two revisions of the app have a bug. When you read an article in landscape, it gets truncated. You can only read in regular mode to get the full article. Please fix the problem.

Unique news perspective


McClatchy offers a unique perspective on news and current events. Someone in their office is thinking.

Additional plus is no frou frou. They concentrate on the substance of news. What a refreshing change from mainstream media.

Of late, the app is becoming a little unstable. But they should probably have that fixed in short order.

This is a must have news app to add to your collection. Try it; you'll like it.
