Perfect way to get the Hays Daily

I used to go to FHSU for 5 years, after graduation, I quit getting the Hays Daily. It didn't take long for me to realize how much I missed reading the paper. This is a great app if you are wanting to read the Hays Daily without actually paying for the subscription!



I'm a long time subscriber to the HDN but most of the time I can't read the paper on line. Currently the app says I must log in but usually crashes before I can put in my info. On the occasions I can get my info typed in it says wrong information. Guess I'll just read Hays Post


Subscription Added***Very Poor Decision!

With competition coming from the Hays Post and the ability to go online for HDNEWS, it would seem better to pass the cost of the app on to advertisers rather than the app users!
