Can't get the news when I want it

This app is so annoying. It only lets you read a certain amount of articles before it asks you to sign into your press account if you have a subscription to the news paper. If I had a subscription, I wouldn't need the app. I tried the subscription but had to cancel it because it never got delivered to my second floor apartment. If you don't have a press account, the app kicks you out of the article. I think it only allows you to read a certain amount of articles for free per month because after awhile it doesn't require you to sign in. It's an on going cycle. I end up reading the articles for free on the website. This app is irritating and I'm deleting it. I can read the articles on my desktop or smart phone browser instead.

Not Happy

The app now has a lot more pop up advertisement. The sliding navigation is inconsistent. And the overall loading time of each article is much slower. You fill the online version with negative news that happened in the Bay Area regarding violence and gossip which we didnt used to get. It makes you guys come off like TMZ. Although I do like the consistent tech updates. Also on the main menu, most of your headlines are cutoff so you can only partially see it. Please change the format so I can go back to using it. Thanks.

Apparently a sucker ,

Not quit what the people want, but could be great.

You did a good job, a Good job. My problem is only with the interface between App format and the sentinel webpage. For example I am unable to find the end of one the issues, that i was reding once I switched over to the App. I am hoping that you will find a way to catagorize those reports that may not immediately transfer over into a category, and possibly place them in an "extras" scroll box. This will keep your format tight And professional as well as allow for the admittedly smaller followers, but invested to you portion of the population to access what is important to them.
