Customer Reviews

No problems whatsoever

I don't usually rate apps. I have no idea why there are so many negative reviews. I almost didn't try the app because of this. I saw one reviewer who was running it on Apple devices and had no problems, so I decided to try it. I'm so glad I did.

I installed it on my iPhone 6S. It installed with no problems and works perfectly fine! The app itself is easy to navigate between sections, pages, and articles. I can do a two-finger expand to make it a good reading size and then a two-finger pinch to go back to a good navigation size.

It is sectioned off sensibly to aid the ease of navigation. There are single arrows on each side for single page turns and double arrows to go to the next or previous sections. The bottom menu bar allows me to find prior editions. Also here, are thumbnail pics of the actual section pages or an outline view of article titles; one touch selects the article.

Everything works fine for me. Great app!

Woke up to a nightmare

May 13 Friday - is this their idea of a Friday the 13th joke? No Friday issue. I deleted and reinstalled app but no dice. Guess I'll have to resort to reading my husbands hard copy. Ha Ha thanks PD.

On my new iPad pro I enjoyed reading the PD but this morning it required a new sign in which took a good half hour, then the PD appeared in a smaller format which was not user friendly to say the least. I sent the PD awful feedback then deleted and reinstalled the app which brought it back to the former format. To the PD people: if it ain't broke don't fix it. Hope enough people complain about this so they keep it as it was.

Here’s your fix: Delete & Reinstall

To fix this issue, delete the app and reinstall it. To delete, press and hold the icon until the app wiggles, then tap the “X”. Then use the App Store app to search for Plain Dealer and then install the app again. You will need your user name and password. Please mark this as helpful so more people see it. Have mercy on the developer, sometimes mistakes happen. Heh, you’ve been supporting the Browns forever, haven’t you? ;-)
