I loved this app until the update. It now requires a email and password on a daily basis with all sorts of pop ups and junk. Much less user friendly than in the past.

A lot more than a newspaper.

Gives you much more than a newspaper. Lots of videos, still photos, links, etc.. I finally found the comments section in the top right of each article. The comments are the fun part of reading the Bee. Me and this app had a tough time at first until I figured out how to navigate it. Now I really enjoy all of its features and look forward to reading the improved Modesto Bee.

Pretty Good, Small Bug


I like the app, it gives me the local breaking news, which I appreciate. It's more portable on my phone than my tablet, but I have loaded it there as well. There is a small bug that makes it always show "1" when you look at your phone, even when there isn't a new story. I hope that will be fixed at the next update.
