Appreciate Access to Local News

Although not perfect, this app is pretty user friendly and provides coverage of local news that might not be available online elsewhere.

Why can’t this be more like WSJ?

With the Journal’s app, I can see the timeline for events as they happen because articles appear in the context of a dated edition. I can peruse articles that may be interesting to me and not to others, or I can ignore articles that the publisher thinks are big deals and just focus on what I want to see.

With the Free Press app, I can’t see articles organized by date of publication, I can only see what the publisher thinks I want to see, often from days or weeks before. I don’t get to pick and choose by date, I don’t get to see the smaller articles that might be interesting to me and to few other people - all I get to see are the articles that the publisher thinks are big deals. I hate this app.

And the local obit’s are hard to read thru - after you read one, you need to go back to the main Obit page then dive into the local obits - waste of time.

And where are the comics?

Old news

This app for the most part is a waste of time. First majority of the news is old news you leave articles on it way too long. It should be more like your paper. Most news apps like the New York Post allows you to look at the paper. You put random articles on your side and leave them on there forever. Secondly as is the case today half the time the app doesn’t work or shuts down on its own. You really should be embarrassed by this app.
