Paperless in Boise
Our paper route delivery guy quit and so we went paperless, using the app and website. The Website works better on a desktop. For a tablet using the app, it is a bit unstable, the e-version paper that looks the same as the printed copy constantly switches views and formats, requiring lots of going back to find your place. However, there is more available news using the app and website than the printed paper and the news is somewhat fresher as the paper’s deadline is early in the evening due to the printers being in Twin Falls. Consequently, much of the printed news is over a day old when you get it.
Clickbait headlines show lack of skilled writing
I want to like this app, and the design itself is great. However, I want to scream every time I open it--nearly every headline is written like cheap clickbait; as if a 21st century reader can't be bothered to actually be interested in a story if the words "find out why" aren't in the headline. I'm *on the app* to find out why. It's insulting and obnoxious and, frankly, I want to actually know what the story is about before I bother clicking over. Moreover, those kinds of headlines are generally used on stories online that are phishing for clicks to steal data...is that the way the Statesman really wants to portray itself? I'm not impressed. I'm finding another way to read local news.
Cost prohibitive, unfortunately
The Statesman is our main daily news source for local news. We have been print subscribers for many decades. We have found the increased print subscription costs unreasonably high. We recently started receiving the print edition of Idaho Press Tribune, which is a fraction of the cost. When our current Statesman subscription expires we may discontinue or opt for digital only.
