Customer Reviews

Much improved!

Update: Dec '14 update seems to be a complete rewrite. No crashes yet! So I bumped my rating up to four stars. The Advocate is a dynamic force for change and accountability in Louisiana, so I'm glad to see this app's improvement.

Old review:
I use this app most days, and subscribe to the paper. The app is of much lower quality—it crashes all the time. The full-screen ads, especially the video ads, are ridiculous and irritating, especially when compared with the approaches taken by other newspapers. I suspect that the crashes are from the 3rd-rate ad service in use.

Will probably delete.

The last version had issues occasionally but was manageable, this has not refreshed more times than has and weather is no longer there which was one of main uses besides seeing how many people were shot the previous day. News is from 5th and it's the 7th, but the Nissan and BR General ads are looking great.

Not good

The new Advocate app has never displayed any stories under some categories, including Sports. For a few days, News and Opinion functioned, but now there is no content on Opinion and News has not updated for three days. The format looks nice but a newspaper app without content is pretty useless.
