IF you can get this app to open, IF you can get past the infuriating login screen that pops up EVERY time you open the app -- even for subscribers -- you will still only find minimal content in this app. It does not contain the full newspaper, which is more than irritating, so it is not a real alternative to the print edition.
I'd be ok with this if this electronic version gave me late breaking news. You'd think the C-J might be able to throw a reporter online to provide immediate coverage on urgent local matters. You'd think they'd want to position themselves as THE local news source to turn to for local coverage. But again, no. I've found it's better to wait until morning for the physical paper than to rely on this app.
I only use it when the carrier misses my delivery (not infrequent) or I'm out of town, but it leaves me feeling like I only know 1/5 of the picture. Boo.
No search function?? Give me a break! This app is useless if looking for ANYTHING specific. Come on Gannett, this is pitiful.
