News Journal review

Always at my fingers tips with out a problem , and at a phenomenal price .twice this weekend I was going to purchase The News journal at the store but they hadn’t received there papers so I would have been out of luck as usual.

Stick with the website, subscribers can’t sign into the app

I’m a recent re-subscriber, trying to support local news. I can sign in to the website just fine, when I sign in to the app it sends me to an “Account Lookup” page and when I close that... I’m no longer signed in. I’m deleting the app, it’s pointless if a paid subscriber can’t simply login to the app to access content.

Apps require regular maintenance folks. If Gannett isn’t prepared to run these apps with a standard product lifecycle model they might as well capitulate the app world and stick with the website - after many decades that’s finally adequate. Perhaps we will be able to say the same thing about the app when they have had a couple decades to likewise improve it on the cheap.

I can’t activate my digital or print because the system keeps asking for an account number. There has been NO mention of an account number. I live chatted with an agent who said I had no account. I SENT AN ACCEPTED PAYMENT TWICE! The app will not honor the three free months they advertise.
Where do I find an account number?
Both live chat and voice support conveniently disconnected each time I tried to speak to customer service because, I feel, this was on purpose by each representative because they could not find the solution. From frustration, I feel both agents purposely disconnected.
Meanwhile I have sent a confirmed payment twice!!!!! I want a subscription!! I’m not giving up!! Find the account number for me!!
