Keep improving

It's ok. However would like to access whole article. Also to select a specific subject or date if an event. Possibly by name of individual or program event. Also interested in upcoming activities and events. My family lives in Lawrence and its rather nice to see what is happening in their area.

What a Big Difference

I’ve been thinking for some time that I’d pay for a subscription if they had a decent app that was easy to navigate and understand. The website is just awash in so much mixed-together content that it was near impossible to see the the latest stuff, by category.

The new format is awesome and easy to navigate. I haven’t paid for a news paper subscription in fifteen years, but it’s worth it in this case.

If I had one wish, and it’s probably me, I want “Today’s Paper” There’s a curated, shared experience that I feel I miss.

Good app, could use a bit more content.

I am a newcomer to Lawrence and have been using this app for several weeks. Overall it is a solid local news app. While occasionally you find one-paragraph stories, most stories are fleshed out. The letters to the editor, opinion pages, and This Day In History articles are all enjoyable. The ads are minimal and it is free. This is not an app for your main news source but is a pleasant enough supplement. I would like most photos and the like as well as a greater amount of details for some stories, but again, a solid start for a free small city news app.
