Useless app if you read the actual newspaper

Searches find things from years ago, but not yesterday. I use words from the print copy right in front of me.

Can’t find articles I’ve read in the newspaper: heck, can barely even find the newspaper, especially a print layout analogy.

Try to sign in on the Subscription page, and it perennially replies ‘server unavailable ‘

Floats ads or messages over the text you’re trying to read.

And they’re trying to get me to give up my print copy?

2 stars, because I really want a paper and 1star May make it disappear?

Great App!

Love everything about it! Never any problems using it & I like all of my local news, weather & breaking news!

I subscribed to the Courier News digital app so I could read the paper on my iPhone/iPad. When I start the app there should be an option to go directly to the e-newspaper. I want to read the digital paper just as I would the print copy. At this time I have to spend 5 minutes trying to figure out how to get to the e-newspaper.
