Customer Reviews


The app keeps downloading the articles and when it reaches 100%, it starts downloading again and doesn't stop. This seems like an issue that needs to be corrected.

How many times do I need to log in?

This is a really good app for reading the paper. The only issue is how often I now have to enter my log in credentials. In the previous version I did not have this problem, but now I have to log in 20 in the same session. VERY frustrating.

App works great now!

This app has been fixed and is now working great! Thanks Charlotte Observer for making this happen.
