Ratings and Reviews
It's All We Have
First of all, I am grateful for having an online source for local news. Having said that, I believe that there is news other than the Cardinals. I know that it creates views, but many people want to know what's actually happening in our area. One thing that irritates me are the house spotlight features. Taking pictures of garden trolls or a family heirloom does not express the architectural merit of a house. Get a new home feature photographer/writer if you are going to do these type of stories. Do you guys have spellcheck? In this day and age there is no excuse to misspell words. It's as if the writers were in high school finishing their homework in the hallway. I know investigative reporting costs money, but I deserve content after watching 15 seconds of a Bommarito commercial. I sometimes read stories where I can't figure out the chronology or connection of events. They are stories and you are supposed to be storytellers. Missouri is supposed to to have a great J school, get some interns who want to bolster their resume. As much as I whine about STL Today, it is the first thing I check, after my emails, in the morning. It's all we have.
New Update and the Economics of Digital
First of all, I agree with the negative reviews of the latest update. It is difficult to view on my I phone 6s. The old version using a text-based list was much easier to use and quicker. I could swiftly view the articles and get to what I wanted. The large picture graphics in the new update align with many of the more modern news sites but I find it, like so many things in life these days, to be dumbed down. I still take the print edition and totally prefer it over digital. Interestingly, I found that if I sign up for the digital edition I get my delivered paper at a lower monthly rate. Go figure. But it shows the power of those annoying digital ads - that’s where the money is. I will continue to read the print version and use the digital edition for late breaking updates, all the while keeping in mind the liberal bias in the news articles and the ridiculous lack of any alternative viewpoints on the editorial page.
Getting better bit still needs a little more work
I really appreciate the work that has been done to improve this app. For example. Making most of the story links with a white background and better color font. There is one issue both my husband and myself keep having with using the app on our iphone 7 phones. While reading an article, the page will constantly refresh and take us back to the top of the article. We are continually scrolling back through trying to find where we left off. I remember one time recently, I had this happen five or six times reading an article and just gave up. I was hoping this would be fixed in the latest update bit it has not. It would be great if this could be addressed in the coming updates. Thanks
