Crassly focused on advertisers first

Designed to be always shifting content by rotataing ads, this app makes the articles really difficult to find and read because your place is always changing. ProJo, remember that without readers your ads have no value. Redesign the app so content stays in place. If not, I’ll just stop reading and rely on your competitors.

Ads Ads Ads ..

Wasn’t a bad news app. I pay for the iPad app for the daily newspaper and is well worth it. But as I’m told they don’t offer anything like that for the iPhone.
Problem: The Ads are do bad that they take over the article. You spend more time trying to get rid of the ads so you can read the article.
I’m deleting this app..

Because of this problem this news App is Worthless. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME..
You should get rid of the company who does you advertising.. that causes this to happen.

Where’s the journal

I wanted the version that replicated the print version. This new update is confusing. I liked seeing the front page news and then selecting the sections. This is a huge disappointment. I may delete it as it is not useful
