I get bits and pieces, most days. Occasionally difficult to get “today’s” edition on right day.

I’ve had a (paper) subscription with the Pilot since the days I could also receive a home copy of the Ledger Star.

I’ve recently relocated to Florida; thus have switched from a hard copy to online.

I still want to see what your excellent journalists have to say too; but... as I’ve said, this has not been a happy transition.

PS: your “proof-reader” machine also needs a tune up.

This article made my mouth start watering with my heart start racing to taste the pit fired delicacies. I plan to load up the van with the rug rats and begin my road trip today stopping at the P-town BBQ joint, and next weekend, extend my road trip to South Norfolk, and so on until I sampled each location. This is a great review and a fabulous idea for family outings while social distancing during the pandemic. Our journey has just began. Please continue your sampling reviews.

Less adds, but notifications fwd to website not app.

Ever since the website re-work it has had a ridiculous number of adds. This pushed me to the app which has a more reasonable number and provides for a better reading experience.

That said, for some reason the app notifications send me to the story on the website rather that the story on the app. This is annoying and anti intuitive. I expect and world prefer to read the story in the app. That is the point of the app after all right?
