Glitchy, annoying

The homepage stops my music playing as if some story on the homepage has autoplay. This continues even after I click play on my music again. More frequently, the page reloads and the screen shifts to a different location. This makes scrolling incredibly annoying since I lose my place on the homepage and have to scroll back up. This happens everytime I use the app. The same thing happens when reading articles which is even more frustration. The app is terrible.

Don’t waste your money!

What a dope I am. I paid for a 12 month Apple subscription via the App Store. However the G’ville Sun app refuses to recognize the subscription. Both Gatehouse/Gannett (they own the Sun) and the Sun people I contacted were worthless.

Through trial and error I learned that if you delete the app and then reload it, it restores your quota of free stories. So every day I delete and download it. Everything was better when the paper was owned by the New York Times

Used to be great

I used this app regularly for several years suddenly it is crashing and won’t load anymore. Lately the news has been old and not updated. It really does have potential if I could open it and get the front page updated so it’s not always high school sports
