Useless without search


There’s not much else to say: perhaps the single most useful characteristic of news in digital format is searchability. So a news app without a search function, like this one, is like a car without a steering wheel. Almost completely worthless.

Not Much News


Most articles seem to appear in multiple categories, giving the illusion there is substance to each daily edition. So far I have found there is little daily news. I am only interested in today's news and the elimination of the reproduction of the daily print edition makes it difficult to tell what news is really in "today's ' paper. Also, no access to the old weather page that had a lot more than daily temps on it. Time to cancel my subscription as I can get better coverage from other sources for free.

Convenient app and no shady fees!


I like using this app to stay informed of local news and enjoy that reading articles on here isn't subject to the same shady fees the Fresno Bee website is!

I dislike that the headlines are not tailored to the app format; many times the headline gets cut off mid sentence, making discerning the actual content of the article difficult.
