Great redesign, still want integrated weather

High quality local and national journalism. The recent design update is much cleaner, attractive and user friendly. Only dropping one star because the app still does not have an integrated weather forecast/radar. When you want to see weather you have to view the desktop site or use a mobile browser. App includes weather related news but not forecasts. Otherwise, this is an excellent news app and my primary source of news. Subscription for unlimited digital access is very reasonable and in the current climate of disinformation, supporting real journalism is tantamount to supporting democratic institutions.

Not a fan of the redesign

I like having the paper in app format but the new redesign is clunky and harder to read. Not to mention the icon is awful!

Slick, but has major issues!

Grew up getting the Baltimore Sun hard copy paper. Always impressed with its quality, and, as long time Orioles fans, enjoyed its coverage and, more recently, the BS dedicated Orioles app. Sorry to see that go!

As to this...

Smooth, well thought out app. Permits customization of sections; easy movement around app; scrolls well.

ISSUES

1. Too many advertisements.

They are embedded in the headline list for each section and, worse, in the middle of every single story. They remain there even if one is reading offline!

Will they still be there if we subscribe? Until we know that, we won't subscribe.

2. Text is small and there is no way of changing the font size, at least none that we can find.

We don't hold our devices up to our eyeballs, so this is a problem. Until that is added, we won't subscribe or use the app.

Note: the BS Orioles app has font size controls , but even its largest size was too small.

3. The sections list is incredibly long, including county after county!

Those should be grouped and put at the bottom. As it stands, it requires too much rummaging and rearranging to get sections right.

Hope you all can fix these things -- we would like to keep following the O's even though we now live hundreds of miles away from home!
