Handy and easy app to use

Love having this app to check out the local news. Don't like messing around with a big newspaper. I use this app everyday to see what's going on locally and around the world.

Do these developers actually use their app????

Okay, first, props they at least have an app. But what's the point if stuff doesn't work??? They only post a very few stories here. Those they post are good, it's a million times better than their mobile site. BUT.....
1. The developers or editors clearly never tested "breaking news." you can read the headline, and the first few words of the store, but nothing more and no link to the story. WTH???
2. Hope nobody you love dies if their last name falls in the second half of the alphabet. They only show up through about L or M. AND, most of the obits from A to wherever it cuts off are just "in memorium" of people who died a year ago in 2011. Why put those here and not the current ones?????
3. If there is news breaking like a fire or accident, that doesn't seem to make it into the "breaking news" section, which is exactly the kind of stuff mobile users want. If you've got people tweeting it, hello, put it on your mobile app. Though I guess what's the point, if nobody can read the breaking news anyway....

I live here. I'm stuck with the Mercury as my local news source, but it's so hard to support them when they have an awful website, painful mobile browser, and a really promising app that has serious flaws that apparently the mercury doesn't care about. Frustrated again!

Lousy!. Don't waste your time!

Warning: not free. Stops loading articles after about 10 or 12 links are clicked and requests a subscription. How stupid is that? And they wonder why people are turning away from newspapers and embracing other sources of information. Also, it's Riddled with ads and has poor performance. Slow to load. Stay away. Go with a major network news app instead which is free.
