Great Local News

Superior reporting and columnists. Did prefer however the previous layout and format. Now hard to tell if an article is current or several/days weeks old.

Reliable local news

I just got this app. I was using the New York Times but I don’t live in New York and I find most of their articles a bit too high brow for me to be honest. The Projo is very comprehensible and I honestly don’t see why I need to know what’s going on in Botswana or wherever which I’m sure the NYT covers. Projo seems to be mostly local news (judging from my usage of it thus far) which is basically all I care about at this point in my life. So... as they say, “It works for me.”

So much missed potential..

This app is disappointing. I believe in supporting local journalism, and I think having a clean, functional app is important. I’ve lived in RI my whole life and I’d hate to see the Projo go out of printing. As someone who would pay for a good app, here are some suggestions:

1. The navigation is confusing and the sidebar menu is a little overwhelming. It would be cool to have some sort of quick navigation tools or just an overall more fluid and intuitive interface.

2. Should have a login capability. There aren’t (from what I can find) any options for logging in, linking a subscription, or even any personalization options.

3. Not sure if I’m missing this one too, but I didn’t see any options for paying to turn off ads.

I understand this is a hard time so maybe app development isn’t in the budget. But just wanted to give some feedback because I think it could be a great app for all my local news.
