Statesman the real Austin key

I have read the Statesman since I was six. I am now 76. I have lived in LA, Stanford California, Durham NC and the North Carolina, Houston and the North Shore of Oahu before coming home.
The investigative reporting of the Statesman is top
Notch. I love Micheal Barnes and -Herman. I get the digital daily and the Sunday plus Show World.
Austin needs to have its own top-notch newspaper plus connection to the national news. I will keep subscribers and hope that people who move into the Austin area will subscribe to the Statesman in order to learn about their new remarkable home and the things it loves like sports.

Uses overseas call center

Yes, that’s right—the Austin “American” Statesman uses an overseas call center to manage their subscriptions! After using this subscription for over 4 months, I decided it wasn’t worth my time. To cancel my subscription was an exercise in frustration. When I finally found the well-buried and hidden “cancel subscription” link, I got a “this feature not available at this time” message, with a telephone number to call for assistance. That number connected me to the overseas call center. It took several minutes to cancel the subscription, but only after insisting I did not want to transfer it to another family member or friend. Typical of this subscription, to be expected of a news feed filled with ads disguised as news stories, video news links that lock you into 15-second ads you can’t skip or back up from, old, repeated news articles, and those irritating links that trick you into accidentally linking into other ads. This is a BAD news ap!

Much improved over 5 years ago

Smooth. Logical. Yay! The improvements in using the app since the buyout of the Statesman several years ago are dramatic! Easy navigation with ads enough out of the way that you can digest articles without constant worry. The paper has good enough focus on local but not as much investigative content as needed but the app works very well.
