Terrible Format and Navigation


The app won't update to the new date upon opening and the navigation is sketchy, at best. I click on an article under an embedded 30 second video and nothing happens. Where is the article? The app looks nothing like a newspaper and apparently TNT doesn't allow us to download the other app by Olive Software that emulates the paper, worked perfectly, downloaded each day upon opening and didn't have the annoying and distracting ads, sales videos and banners. Terrible app and news service!

Best HS sports coverage

Preps fan

I particularly love TNT's high school sports coverage. Best of any newspaper on the state with their all-state teams and All-Area teams. Awesome feature stories and profiles on local athletes and they do highlight videos from games. I'm always looking for their Northwest Nuggets recruiting package, Western 100 and the Untouchables wrestling team.

Incompatible w/iOS 8.1.2


TNT app v6.0.6 is incompatible with iOS v8.1.2 on iPhone 6 Plus - after upgrading this morning it immediately quits when I try to open it.
The upgrade comments say it's compatible with iOS 8+, it is not. Apparently "compatible with iOS 8+" really means iOS 9 or iOS 8.5.
Shoddy beta testing & documentation - how hard is that to do responsibly. Functioned at 3-4 stars in past, now a zero.
