Double Front Page

First I want to compliment the person that delivers our paper ON TIME! We went through quite a stretch when the paper was either late or not delivered at all. I always prefer reading an actual paper but had no choice for a while to read the digital edition. I slowly got used to it s I stayed with it. My wife prefers the paper version.
However, there is one thing that’s annoying. When starting out be clicking the “e-newspaper “ it opens as two front pages side by side. I finally figured out a work around but I don’t understand why it’s programmed that way.

Forced to accept add tracking !!!

I am a paying subscriber to the Hartford Courant. Yesterday I upgraded my Hartford Courant App. This morning I was greeted by the following message


There was no opt out feature.

I pay for my Courant Subscription. The Hartford Courant DOES NOT ALLOW the user to reject tracking. Again, I PAY for my subscription. I was stunned by the position taken by the Courant.

Perhaps it was somewhere in the fine print, but to my eye the Courant NEVER disclosed the REQUIREMENT to accept add tacking as a condition of its latest upgrade. Their stance is APPALLING.

Apple has done a terrific job helping consumers manage their add tracking choice. For those folks that chose to share their data, that is a personal choice that meets their needs. For those of us that don’t chose to share their data and PAY for the subscription, the Courant has taken a very poor stance on the issue. For the nation’s oldest continuously published newspaper, it is a big disappointment.

The New Hartford Courant App forced add tracking for PAID subscribers is 100% at odds with Apple’s policy of consumer choice.

I implore the Courant to remove this feature. If not I must request that the APP be removed from the Apple App Store as its stance is inconsistent with Apples values and policy.

Next to impossible to use...

... unless what you’re looking for happens to be right in front of you. I get better results searching their Facebook page. They used to have a clickable front page which was great, but the only way to access the rest of the paper now is a category bar at the top of the page. So there’s literally no way to just read the paper from front to back.

The search function is unusable. Results come up with a photo (!) and a short headline but no date which is completely worthless. For example, there was an update on an accident in Cheshire two days ago that killed a child. When I tried to find the original article in the search bar even the article I was reading didn’t come up when I typed in “Cheshire”. It’s like trying to find a book in the library with no lights on. Frustrating and awful.
