Poor way of stars and stripe to try and take your money

There used to be the .99 cents stars and strips app that let you read it all for free. Now they they want to manipulate you in taking your money with this new stars and stripe app. It is a crime of fraud the way they do it. I highly recommend do not be a victim of them taking your money. If I could give negative stars I would. Also used to you could read more of articles un the app. Now they make it limited. They need to at least make the app free to all new customers that down load this appp since you can no longer read all the articles. But at least you can go to google and retype the article to read it that way for free.

Sorry to hear you feel that way. Our previous app did not provide all of Stripes' content and you can still read the top stories for free on this version. We understand some users' resistance to a subscription, but we hope you will reconsider the value of our news and return to us in the future.

From an app perspective, it's solid in terms of organization and UI. From a price standpoint, it's 1 star ridiculous. Without an overpriced subscription, one can only read the front page stories. For all the other sections, one just has to search Google for any given story and almost certainly find it for free from multiple other news source. To have to pay $40 a year for very little original content is insulting. As it's partially partially subsidized by the US gov (taxpayers), I would think $12 a year maximum (with no ads) and free with ads would be fair. Otherwise it's a 1 star rip-off.
