I always have appreciated the Inquirer and the writers who work hard researching & writing good articles. My only suggestion would be a more balanced approach to writing about sex abuse scandals which seem to be rampant across many pubic & private organizations, and religious institutions. However, Inquirer only seems to focus on the Catholic Church with front page coverage. Please also write articles on the millions of people the Catholic church assists with life saving care, food & support. Thank you!

Too liberal and biased

The Inquire loses money because it is a liberal, biased news organization. Left wing liberal nuts may appreciate the progressive non journalistic views but the Inquire must realize that these nut jobs don’t buy or read the news. Even the Inquire sports writers add their liberal viewpoints to sports. What ever happened to just writing the news? What ever happened to true and honest investigator journalist? And the Inquire cannot figure out why they lose money and readership? Simple question- why does Fox News have the highest number of viewers, at times higher than their competition combined? If a Main stream media outlet follows Fox’s footprint they too would be the leader in viewership or readership. Left wing liberals do not have an understanding of reality.

Greatly Improved

Over the past few updates, the user interface has improved makedly. The developer listens to feedback, and it shows.

There was a serious problem on iPad right after the last update, which now seems to have been caused by rogue ads.

Ad curation is the greatest weakness. Once in a while, an ad is an obvious fraud, but such junk is pulled quickly upon reprting.
