Overall usable app with some annoyances

Dark mode doesn’t apply while reading an article, only in the menus and while browsing article headlines, which is counterintuitive. Email communications preferences should be available in the app with push notifications but they’re not. Instead, after signing up for a paid membership to read news IN THE APP, SacBee still thought I needed to get 10 emails a day showing me the same articles that I already read IN THE APP. I also had to use html view in the gmail app to get the unsubscribe link to appear, which I think may be technically illegal under the federal CAN-SPAM Act.
Despite all that, the app UX is productive and the journalism itself is good....usually.
Oh and one more thing. The photos section is nothing but Jack Ohman political cartoons...that’s dumb. They’re not even that funny. How about some....PHOTOS?...maybe? Idk

Difficult and clumsy

Since I subscribe to the print version, I frequently find a story I’d like to share with someone who does not. With the confusing top line of types of stories, where you find duplicate entries galore and seldom any features beyond insipid sports writing (not including Joe Davidson, who is first class), you have to look through all the headings under each banner to see if the article you want might be there.
I don’t understand why the website wouldn’t organize under more traditional headings: Top Stories, National News, International News, Local News, Business, Sports, Opinion, and then Features or special groups of features like Food.
Nor do I understand why there is no search function to use so you don’t have to scroll through all the entries to see if your article can be found.
All the stories now are in digital form. Pay some competent web designer to have the site do a far better job of mirroring the printed version.
Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

Terrible app

There is no way that the rating of 4.3 out of 5 is honest. How many bots did it take, SacBee? The majority of the ratings are one star, for very good reasons. I’m a long time subscriber to the Bee print edition, but had to cancel because the delivery people had a hard time delivering more than 4 days a week. So I payed for the online e-edition. Isn’t it fraud when someone takes your money and gives you a non-working product? I need to read the e-edition on my iPad. Nope; it works on my desktop, but not on the specific device I bought it for. Bottom line: it’s horrible and if the Bee finally does go out of business it’s their own fault for not doing the job they were payed to do. And . . . This is no small point: the app does not include the comics. What is wrong with your people?? It appears your primary objective is to drive customers away. I WANT to support journalism, but your company makes it more and more difficult to do so!
