  • Slow and buggy

    By Armitage2010
    Notifications take forever to open and load in the app.
  • Needs an update

    By Limaboy
    The app will not allow sign in and will not load content. Requests for help have been ignored
  • Home feed not working

    By 216Kings
    This app has always been frustrating with lots of glitches. It's the least user friendly news app that I read. The latest challenge: the home feed option doesn't work on my iPad. Happened earlier this month which means I'm stuck with only the eEdition.
  • Enjoy The Star. App is brutal.

    By bzehawk
    Rarely can read a full article without app jumping back to home page.
  • Clicking notification takes too long to open story

    By TomcruiserMO
    Why does every other news app almost instantly open from a notification but this done doesn’t? It is not like I have an iPhone 6. This happened on an iPhone 11 and continues happening on an iPhone 12.
  • App doesn’t work

    By Scb0629
    App has not worked since August 2021. Tried recommended fix of clearing cache and reinstalling all, still dues not work. Very disappointing this has gone on for so long.
  • App Error

    By Intellectus_KC
    Every time I launch the app on my iPhone, I get an “error fetching feeds” message. I can still open up print editions but really liked getting the feeds. I removed the App, rebooted phone and reinstalled the App but am still getting the error message.
  • The journalism is good the app keeps crashing

    By Jkjjjffv
    App Worked fine until aug 2021 now it just crashes all the time — skip the app just read it on a browser
  • Buggy

    By markmcedwin
    With this latest version when I get a notification the link never seems to work. I have to go look for the story. And today when I'm reading a story and the middle the story goes blank. Very buggy
  • Ads ads ads

    By vodvill
    They’ve tried to get clever with ad insertion in this app and it breaks the program. Pop up ads now crash the app every time. Not worth the frustration to use.
