Generous and a Treat

Wanted to thank Birmingham News for their generosity in providing this free news coverage. I have appreciated it so much during this dangerous time with the pandemic. The extra fun activities for kids and their selection of puzzles in the paper is second to none. Thank you for providing this valuable and entertaining service during this time. I am grateful for this bright spot during the week!

UPDATE on previous review.

Purchased this app over a week ago from iTunes. Have not been able to log on yet. The app gives password error message. Have spoken to two managers at Birmingham news and had 6 lengthy calls to them seeking help. First they said they didnt have record of payment through iTunes. When they had that, the managers told me they would have it working that day and would call me back to verify. Neither manager did. Sixth call- they now say there is a problem with the app developer and I'm just going to have to wait until they fix it and they don't have any idea when that will be! Will gladly update my review if I can ever view the news on this app. Until then, I give it one star and if they had a zero star, I would have chosen that!
UPDATE: Josh at Bham News was able to identify problem and fixes were applied to the app by the developers. I can now read the news, which is awesome! For anyone having problems with sign in on the ipad (user name/password incorrect)- you have to click the button like you are subscribing again and a new button appears that says reset itunes sub (you are not charged for another account) Click that button and the application works! Thanks for the fix!!!!
