Great local focus - could be better

Need less national commentary mixed with local news. Keep up what you’re doing.
The “front page” headlines about a tasteless homeowner is not worthy of that position in your paper.
Double check rendering of content in your app - especially iPad. Formatting and punctuation often make content illegible.
And keep on making Rochester a ‘better place’. A place that welcomes a balanced community of caring people, growing ethical businesses, and gov’t officials who are elected by knowledgeable voters.

iOS 14 Headaches Resolved

I downloaded the new version of the app yesterday, 10/9, and it now works great, like it used to prior to IOS 14. Good work with the fixes. I enjoyed reading the paper online this morning (which I had to since our weekend delivery didn’t happen).

I updated to IOS 14 a couple weeks ago and the app went downhill as it kept kicking back to my phone’s home page as soon as I opened an article. The only consistent way to read anything is to expand the page view which I don’t find user friendly. This morning I upgraded to 14.1 with the hope things might improve but they did not. Maybe it’s my iPhone 7 that is the problem but the app worked until I went to 14.

I recently updated to 13.2.2 and the app is prone to freezing where you cannot scroll or do anything. I have to shut down the app to make it functional. This morning a couple articles continuously froze so I had to expand the page view to read anything. The restarts do take me back to the page that I was on but this is very frustrating.

January 2nd: New problem today. The app will not recognize my internet connection so I can only see editions prior to today. I tried the web interface and it is the same thing. I even rebooted my internet to make sure it was ok. All along I had been able to use other apps and websites with no problems. You have an issue with the interface. Please correct it so I don’t have to request a credit.

Many items fail to come into focus. Pictures are extremely low res. When it fails to work, error messages are unhelpful. Tells me I have no internet connection when the problem is most likely their server. Thought it would work better on my brand new iPad but this was wishful thinking.
Update a year later: the app still stinks. And the content it delivers has been becoming increasingly meaningless, as they expect me to get news and sports info elsewhere. I may finally pull the plug on my subscription, but what to do about the Funnies?
And a few months later: The D&C company is unresponsive to any complaints concerning this app. Some of their employees don’t even know the distinction between their website and this app. A thoroughly frustrating experience. Down to one star.
