Bad App!!!

The Guy!!

This app could have stood out but removing the Print Addition was a terrible mistake. For those that have and do read a Newspaper this app leaves one disturbed? Why remove the only reason one would open the app in the first place? The bee has had such a problem over the years with its beliefs and tactics to influence that now it's continuing to shut out its true customers! SAD DAY FOR THE BEE, yes Newspapers are failing and they are failing on there on accord. Now I remove all of my adds!

A whole new group of inexperienced reporters and the Lose of Denny Walsh and Peter Hecht just to name a few have hurt the Bee! Replacing them with young kids that are Cheap is one way to so some kind of profit? You have the opportunity to do it write with the Finest Reporters but I have yet to see fair reporting! Your down on the GOP but support Idiots that FLIP OF THE COUNTRY! The bee is a Rag Now and has been for years! Start telling the truth, our News Reports will start soon and we are building a list of media outlets that twist Facts! We will twist the outlet and Correct the truth! New Day and your old rag did not keep up! Too bad your people running this rag must have their heads in the sand!

Difficult and clumsy

Since I subscribe to the print version, I frequently find a story I’d like to share with someone who does not. With the confusing top line of types of stories, where you find duplicate entries galore and seldom any features beyond insipid sports writing (not including Joe Davidson, who is first class), you have to look through all the headings under each banner to see if the article you want might be there.
I don’t understand why the website wouldn’t organize under more traditional headings: Top Stories, National News, International News, Local News, Business, Sports, Opinion, and then Features or special groups of features like Food.
Nor do I understand why there is no search function to use so you don’t have to scroll through all the entries to see if your article can be found.
All the stories now are in digital form. Pay some competent web designer to have the site do a far better job of mirroring the printed version.
Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

Poorly implemented

Hey why did you feel compelled to update anything other than security issues with your previous app? It is hard to navigate and the screens are inconsistent. I often get lost trying to view the various sections of the paper. The current version of the paper often will not download despite repeated attempts to access the current news with the recent file.

Additionally the pop-up adds are annoying as hell!
