Easy to navigate

Easy to navigate. Play with the different features. Default settings are not easy on the eye of older people but if you spend just a little time you can customize it to your preferences

App is fine as is. Whatever updates that have been applied recently (then apparently backed-off...?) are poorly applied and obviously not “user tested”. Can’t get in directly, font and page is reduced so you have to expand to be able to read; if you print a crossword puzzle, again, the font is way too small. I mostly use the app on iPad or phone, as I think most users do, so test on a tablet and phone, not a desktop or laptop computer. (Yes, the web version using my desktop computer does work better...; even the crossword print) Overall, on-line customer service is completely non-responsive. Hopefully some standard IT practices will be applied to your development efforts in the future.

A very good newspaper!

I read the Patriot faithfully; have been doing so for a long time! PennLive is fine but I’ve been reading the paper for so long that I must have the e-paper. I could do without the obvious liberal bias; most of Central PA is conservative. We deserve at least a moderate tome. But what are we going to do?
