Ratings and Reviews
Where are the columnists?
I like Newslide as an alternative to the paper as I live out of state about half of the year, but see two issues I’d like to see fixed. First - where are the columnists? I love their hometown stories and voice-of-the-people take on things. They keep me close to the city even when I’m mikes and miles away. Second, I use my iPad to access Newslide but am frustrated by the ads -not by their frequency but how they freeze my iPad screen for over 30 seconds and prevent me by swiping to any other story. Freezing for 5 seconds or so I could take, but 30 seconds is way too long!
Highly Improved with updates for performance
I was having problems with reading the NewsSlide as it would get stuck with the advertisements. You had to wait several seconds at the advertisements and sometimes interact with them before you can move on. This went away, thankfully. The reason for 4 stars is that you don’t get all of the articles that are in the newsprint edition.
Nice and Smooth Now
When this app was first introduced navigation between articles was very difficult at times. Now that is not an issue. Navigation is smooth and I enjoy reading the articles most days. An improvement could be to all access to previous days articles. Maybe as a subscription feature.
