Flip through the enewspaper of the Tampa Bay Times, Florida’s largest newspaper. The Tampa Bay Times, formerly called the St. Petersburg Times, has long possessed a reputation for quality and independence. It has won ten Pulitzer prizes, the most recent in 2014 for local reporting. The daily newspaper circulates in the Tampa Bay area and beyond.

Ratings and Reviews
I receive a daily paper copy of the Times but someone else in the family monopolizes that, so I use the digital addition - this app. I love it. Having used it for over a year, I believe I now prefer the digital edition to the paper copy. One advantage is that I occasionally I want to go back and find an article from a prior edition, and I can. If I only had paper copies, the paper copy would have been thrown out.
Yes there are some digital errors in the content, but those are easily overlooked in favor of the great convenience. I can’t live without it.
Worst App I’ve ever used
And it probably should be removed from the App Store for false advertising. The “App Support” link in the App Store goes nowhere - it’s dead. There is no support provided by the newspaper. It loads most (not all) of the time, but rarely will it display the page of the newspaper without being so blurry that’s illegible. This is despite an excellent connection (and includes everyone in our house accessing the paper).
We loved the idea of getting the paper digitally - the Tampa Bay Times ruined that idea with poor, poor execution.
Buggy app with a trendy 80s appeal
This app is buggy at best, with broken links to set up your account. There is no pre-notification when your digital subscription is about to expire. It simply locks you out. Re-subscribing sends you back through the same torturous routine and dead ends. The most recent application update was a year ago. I think you can do better than that.
