Works great for me, easy way to stay on top of local news
Nice way to read local writers who live work and play in Eastern Iowa
First, the app itself. Crashes frequently to the point of freezing and shutting down the ipad. Tech support suggested reinstalling. Didn't help the problem.
Second, they may say this has "breaking news", but learning about an accident backing up morning traffic the day after is not breaking. The app is updated between 8am- 11 pm weekdays only. The news is rarely breaking news. On the weekends, the fluff pieces from the front page are posted here (except during football season). The articles on the app are full of broken links and captions for pictures that don't exist. It seems that things are just cut and paste between platforms without regard for the requirements of the platform.
This app freezes all the time, doesn't matter if you're in the middle of a story and scrolling down, or trying to pick a story to read. It's absolutely frustrating that you can't get through a story without having to restart because it froze.
Just on a side note, the editing is terrible. Stories with wrong pictures, sentences without spaces; as an app it is definitely lacking.
Hope they are able to update these issues, ones I never had on my Droid.
