Ratings and Reviews
Affordable but limited
If you’re in high school journalism: You’re stuck with the generic-looking “s” icon — no way to customize it to your school paper’s own image. And, at least as far as I can tell, the news page of our paper is the default first screen after the app is launched. OK with that, except when I’m not. It would be nice to be able to adjust that in the app settings. But again, I could be overlooking something. Certainly cheaper than paying a developer, but it’s limited. SNO Support is always very prompt, so that’s a big plus here. I guess I was just hoping for something slicker than this.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
