Great app

After latest update the app has been working fine again. Like the news and local interest stories. Use it every day.

App freezes constantly

Great new coverage, however, the app freezes after about 10 minutes of being open. Seems like it’s trying to download too many ads when this happens. Very annoying though when you can only read 3 articles before it freezes.

App keeps crashing

I can no longer open the app on my iPhone. When I attempt to do so, the app crashes. I see others are having the same problem.

PennLive charges $15/month, a fee that is almost double what a comparable Washington Post subscription runs. To have a crash bug like this, with what they now charge, is asinine. There are true amateurs running the show at this company. They better get their act together quickly or they will lose many more people.
