New to Baltimore

Loved reading the Free Baltimore Banner articles so much I decided that I wanted to read more than the 3 articles so I bought the subscription for 6 months and have not been disappointed! I especially like the information about what’s going on around town socially! Great news source.

Font is very hard to read

This review is strictly about the app, not the news content. The app works fine and I would really like to give it a higher rating, but the font used is very difficult and unpleasant to read with its exceedingly thin lines. Increasing the font size isn’t the solution; though that helps a bit. Please re-think this font and choose one that is optimal (or at least much better) for screens and more accessible to a wider range of the reading public.

Great news presentation

Love the Baltimore Banner! Updated news about our city and state every day. I was hooked when your writer talked about watching Succession. A true fan of a great show. Tell us more why you watch it.
