Ratings and Reviews
It would be nice when I am dealing with your staff that they would be more consumer friendly and respectful. Usually this is the top views that the bottom represent. If not then we will see change however, I have dealt with the state over 30 years and have seen no change. I have not seen an inch or sliver toward consumer friendliness or respectfulness in the past.
This has to be the worst news app I’ve ever used. It crashes repeatedly and many of the news stories are stale. The State wants to sell you an e-subscription before you can access the digital version, which is laughable. It’s 2018 and no one pays for news anymore. The only reason I continue to use the app and visit the website is because I’m a lifelong resident of Columbia, SC, and have been reading The State since I was a teenager and there was no internet.
I liked this app sooo much better before you tried to improve it. Not as stable as before and I miss not being able to email or share articles on social media...I would think The State would have appreciated that and not taken away the capability.
