Missin PGH

I am a transplanted Pittsburgher who hoped to follow my hometown paper with this app. After many futile attempts (for some reason either my user name / password had a problem or the content was not available when I was signed in) to transition from the free 10 articles a month to whatever I was asked to join - I gave up. I was never a fan of the Tribune-Review in the past, but their app works and I can get my ‘Burgh news. It is inexcusable that the PG cannot come up with a working app. I am sure I am neither the first or last to take my business to the Trib.



Where to start... you can’t seem to update your content, you constantly advertise your “slide” app (which is somehow worse than this one), or the fact that randomly there is an alarm that goes off while you’re reading an article.

Please fix the air raid siren that goes off randomly. You do have better content than any of the other TV apps that cover Pittsburgh, don’t spoil it with nonsense like this. You can do better.

Popups & stale news


I already pay for your service... why the need to bombard me with pop up ads for the News Slide app? Give it a rest, I have that app and don’t like it!

Also I don’t want to see stale “Editor Picks” every time I open up the app. It shouldn’t be a multi-click process to get the latest news.
