Newspaper view

I love reading the northwest herald on my ipad each morning. However with the most recent update, there is no longer the option of viewing the daily paper as if I was reading a printed copy. PLEASE bring back the option to view the printed format!

Great customizable news source

I love that the app lets me set up a custom feed of just the news that’s most relevant to me. I like to follow my local area’s news, but also want to keep up to date with how the Bears are doing, and through the settings, I can have those two things show up first in the app.

Shaw Local app for ios

Generally, the app displays the newspaper as expected. What is not expected is the unfriendly manner this app is to regular users. Itwill not remember the user from one session to the next requiring login again and again. Seems to allow login memory for PC. This app could be more user friendly but it is tolerable.
