Great local newspaper, app seems to be stable

This is the best local newspaper, with little bias in reporting unlike the national news sources. Over all the years, they have always provide excellent local investigative news reporting. When I travel and read various other local papers, Newsday is no comparison. Need to continue to support excellent reporting.

Thankfully, the app seems stable again after the buggy iOS 13 release.

I love the fact that when I’m reading the newspaper edition, I can click on the article and it reformation it to a much easier format for the device. IMHO, they have nicely address electronic news while still trying to keep the paper addition going. I just wish their electronic subscription cost is less than the paper subscription edition.

If I could give app no stars I would

This is an update to my old review. The App is still truly embarrassing for a newspaper that once was really well written. Typos and stories with wrong facts abound. Stories are left up for days so who knows what’s really “news.” The comments section has yet to comeback — obviously management knows what a leftist rag it is and are scared of being called out. It doesn’t crash regularly like the Newsday app of old, but the paper and app aren’t worth paying for,

Another update - another half -assed excuse for an app. Now the comments section locks up if you try and reply. Plus, the app runs the same inane story for days, like valedictorians of high schools. OMG. Crash after crash, freeze after freeze. Newsday App is horrible and has been for a while. Don't bother.

Jets' Fan ,

Out of area review

I am a new resident of Conway, SC (near Myrtle Beach) & previously lived the last 29 years in northern New Jersey. I’m a huge NY Jets fan and was always interested in reading Newsdays’ sports articles about the Jets. These articles also introduced me to the Long Island area, so I’ve been a fan of LI ever since! Now that I’m living, geographically, much further away, I’m enjoying the Newsday App, so, I can keep up with an area of the country I love. With that also being said, my prayers are with all who live in this great metro NY area as you’re dealing with Covid-19. Everyone, please STAY SAFE! Much love, Peg Grady
