Ratings and Reviews
I always have appreciated the Inquirer and the writers who work hard researching & writing good articles. My only suggestion would be a more balanced approach to writing about sex abuse scandals which seem to be rampant across many pubic & private organizations, and religious institutions. However, Inquirer only seems to focus on the Catholic Church with front page coverage. Please also write articles on the millions of people the Catholic church assists with life saving care, food & support. Thank you!
Works when it works but is slow
It’s not the best news app in the world. I signed up for a special offer for 80 cents for 8 weeks but probably won’t renew because the app is slow and every other news app I have on my phone works just fine. When you tap on a notification, it takes forever to load the article. Sometimes it doesn’t load at all. I gave up today after a few minutes waiting for an article to load with nothing but the headline, picture and little spinning circle in the middle of the page. I was going to keep it to support local news but if you can’t make an app that loads reliably, I can’t support you.
Developer Response ,
We hear you, we're aware of some issues people are having with loading the app. Here on the Inquirer App Team, speed and ease of use are our primary goals. We're actively working on optimizing performance, and we’re excited for you to try out upcoming updates.
Too liberal and biased
The Inquire loses money because it is a liberal, biased news organization. Left wing liberal nuts may appreciate the progressive non journalistic views but the Inquire must realize that these nut jobs don’t buy or read the news. Even the Inquire sports writers add their liberal viewpoints to sports. What ever happened to just writing the news? What ever happened to true and honest investigator journalist? And the Inquire cannot figure out why they lose money and readership? Simple question- why does Fox News have the highest number of viewers, at times higher than their competition combined? If a Main stream media outlet follows Fox’s footprint they too would be the leader in viewership or readership. Left wing liberals do not have an understanding of reality.
