Ratings and Reviews
Content is good. App is ok. Widget doesn’t work.
This is not a review of The Morning Call’s content. This is a review of the app. Which is fine, if a little clunky. However, i’d love to be able to reach articles via the widget but it doesn’t work. It used to work fine. Then a few months ago an issue started that when you click on an article nothing happened. Wrote app support. They took weeks to get back to me and kept asking me the same questions over and over and asking for screen captures of the widget. Because somehow static photos are going to help them get their stuff to work?
Anyway, that’s not really an issue anymore because now the widget doesn’t load any stories at all and tech support stopped responding to my emails. Thinking I’ll just cancel my online subscription (which costs $16 a month!). I was really trying to support local journalism but if they can’t be bothered to keep their stuff working then why should I be bothered to support it?
TL;DR- Widget is broken and tech support stinks.
The Morning Call has spammed me unrelentingly for years. I downloaded this app so I could leave this review. I have no idea how they got my email address, but no amount of unsubscribing or complaining to them or marking them as spam in gmail can stop whoever their marketing genius is from getting past the filters yet again. They must change addresses and domains to accomplish this, and while it’s some technical feat, it probably isn’t legal. I desperately want off this obnoxious list and am simply trying one more venue here to attempt to effect that. I guess my next step would need to be a state attorney general in Pennsylvania.
Auto-Playing Ads - Don’t Use in Public
I pay for this app to get local news. MCall either doesn’t read or ignores feedback. Their video ads play automatically, blaring the volume until you scramble to either mute the volume or stop the ad playback.
App is also unstable and often crashes when loading articles.
When I find another means of getting local news I’ll cancel my subscription to this and likely the paper version which nobody at the office reads anymore.
