Better than paper

I read the App seven days a week. The clean interface supports the informative writing.

The ads are unobtrusive. My only wish is more ads and news from local small businesses.

Not seeing new subscription

I subscribed to a digital only offer and the app will not see that new subscription. The CSR told me I had to go through a third-party vendor with the app, which sounded like I had to pay for a second duplicate subscription (probably at full price) in order to use the app.
Why isn’t the app seeing my valid subscription? Fix this and I’ll update the rating. Or at least give instructions on how to get the app to see the subscription.
Thank you


Finally, a search bar!

A much more functional app that is superior to the mobile site.
