The Gainesville Sun for iPhone
By Halifax Media Group, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Keep up with the Sun's thorough coverage of Gainesville and the University of Florida while you're on the go.
The Gainesville Sun introduces an iPhone app to let you quickly check our news, features, sports, editorials, columns, blogs, photo galleries and videos wherever you are.
Read through all of today's news and check back for breaking news throughout the day. You control which sections display on the main screen and how many articles you see. You can also adjust the text size, mark your favorite articles for later reading and share stories easily by e-mail or post to Facebook or Twitter.
Today's above the fold 1A story, "not found?"
Content is limited. Today's page 1A above the fold story is "not found" using the search feature. So, what was the Sun's biggest story 15 hours ago is not in the list and cannot be found? There is no "local news" category & as already mentioned no obits. No ability to prioritize categories, you can only select/deselect them. I will be sticking with the mobile version & deleting this app.
When it works
When it works, it is great. But I have to tap on it and wait, it closes out, and I tap again. This morning alone I have done this 4 times and it has yet to bring up the site. Very Frustrating!!!
And it has yet to work since I wrote this review :/
This app is awful
Many problems. I called the Sun to speak with someone to give them feedback and the receptionist told me that she had been instructed by their "tech person" to tell customers to ignore the app and use Safari.
So why even offer an app that you recommend customers not use?
