Good app

I have been using the app for several months along with subscribing through in-app purchase. I prefer this since it’s easier for me to cancel; no phone calls. The app has been working well for me. Until today. I updated to iOS and iPadOS 14 and now the app closes immediately after tapping to open. This occurs on my iPad and iPhone. I tried tapping on the App Support link and that opens the app which then closes. Hopefully an update is released soon. This is the downside of using in-app purchase; I have no other way of accessing this content.

The only reason I rate this app 1 star is because 0 or a negative number was not an option. Indianapolis is my home town and I love everything about the city. Unfortunately, it’s only news paper has become a complete joke. And it’s digital newspaper is less than a joke. DO NOT sign up for a digital subscription. If you want to cancel (and you will soon after signing up), they make it impossible to deactivate your account. Which obviously is by design. Which makes the owners of Gannett Newspapers (the owners of the Indianapolis Star) even more reprehensible. It pains me to post this review. This is my second attempt at a subscription. The only reason I signed back up for a ‘script, was for Colts coverage. The straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back? An article following Sunday’s win...well, 6 nonsensical sentences. I tried. Again. But, I’m done.

Fraudulent chages

We live in Pendleton, Indiana we used to get the paper delivered on Thursday and Sunday. Last year we started experiencing issues with not getting the paper delivered. After multiple calls, they insisted we would get the paper on the next run. It never happened but they kept taking payments out of our account. So we decided to just quit getting the paper. They did reimburse us and I thought the issue was resolved. However, once again on Nov 12, 2019, they once again took a payment of 3 times the normal amount we had been paying and guess what we still haven’t received one paper. This borders on criminal considering that I have closed our account with them. I have sent an email to the Vice President Mr. Hakanson and am awaiting a response. Has anyone else experienced thus issue?
