Keep the suggestions coming!
This app is less news and more ads than even the dwindling paper version. It needs more customizability and more news if it is going to ever see any use.
BTW, it doesn't even provide the comics!?
Very Slow to update the county on current events.
Their updates are hours and sometimes days behind. It would be nice to know current events when they actually happen.
Not ready for prime time
Where are the comics pages?
