Ratings and Reviews
Good navigation. Useful variety of news content.
This is the easiest newspaper app to navigate that I have encountered. I especially appreciate the variety of options I have available to help me choose what I want to read—many ways to interface.
Another plus is that not only is this a local paper, but also includes important state news, national news, and international news. I live in far western North Carolina, and this type of news, whether in print, online or broadcast simply isn’t available there. With this app, I can keep informed about my wider world, especially in regards to North Carolina’s state situations and politics.
My only suggestion would be: make it possible to use the up & down arrows on my iPad’s Bluetooth keyboard in order to be able to scroll down the screen. Having to use the touch screen so often, as I do now, is hard on my arthritic thumbs.
WOW!! Now even better!!!
I love the new design of the app! Colorful, informative, & easy to read. What a pleasant surprise!! Congrats on the new design! The e edition of the paper is there as well if you are a fan of the paper layout. Please do yourself a favor & give the hometown app a chance. You will not be disappointed!!! I love e edition extra!!! An in depth look at the news of the day. Bravo!!
Got rid of newspaper replica and now can't get info
I subscribed to the newspaper to see the version as issued. That works beautifully. However every few months, it requires me to login and will not take my documented credentials and the “contact us” doesn’t go anywhere. The forget password option never sends me an email. It is very inconvenient to manage the call in password reset.
