Subscription Rip-off

I subscribed for one year but now in a Catch 22. I still keep getting the window. The App Store says I am subscribed for one year. When I attempt to restore my purchase, I get a message the restore of my purchase failed. When I attempt to subscribe, it says I am already subscribed. So I still cannot see the stories I am subscribed to. Also when I went through the process for support, I got no reply back.

Addl info: I called Gannett Customer (NO) Support and was unable to get the issue fixed and said it was an Apple issue. They did not care I had receipts and notification of the subscription. I ended up asking for a refund. This would be no star app if I could give that low of a rating.

This is the worst news app I have ever seen. Way to many ads. The same article shows up multiple times as you scroll down. There is no rhyme or reason to how the main page is presented. And forget about trying to look at the obituaries, you just get hijacked by the company hosting them and spammed with so many ads you want to scream in frustration. The app gives more attention to high school sports than anything else going on. Really pathetic for something that’s supposed to be a news app. No wonder it’s nickname is The Star Blunder.
