No search, only some previous day’s content
I love the content you have.
Sometimes when I tap on an alert from the app to see the relevant article, the app shows me a more recent and unrelated article. Sometimes the article in the alert just isn’t to be found.
There is no obvious way to search. The search on your website is indexed poorly, but at least there is one.
Previous days’ articles, political cartoons, etc. are only sometimes available through the app.
Thinking of the web site: I have to reset my password every time I use it, despite always using the same password. I suppose using the same password keeps the app from having trouble or a sign in when I launch it, but any password reset should require reauthentication of the app (or any other way to get to my account), even if it is the same password.
Lots of Notifications, but
I expect a notification to show me current news. However often the news displayed is two days old! Why not update when notifications are sent?
Hidden local news
I saw a news item about a local hospital having multiple coronavirus cases in another news source. The only way this article showed up searching for it in this app was to enter the hospital name. Under the search for coronavirus I got fluff stories about restaurants opening and sports stories but nothing about this hospital that is located nearby even though this story was just out yesterday.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
