Worst news app ever

This app is lame. Be prepared to double-thumb scroll all the waaaay to the bottom for Obituaries.
Sometimes a spam message pops up to click. You have to end the app to avoid clicking.
Update: I raised it one start. They put a box at the top that you can jump to different sections. Too bad the box disappears as you scroll down. If you want to jump after you've scrolled down a ways you have to double-thumb your way to the top. The spam is still popping up requiring one to kill the app to get out of it. Still the worst news app I've come across.

Unreliable, glitch-filled app

The Scranton Times-Tribune app: don't waste your time! The ONLY good thing about this app is that it's free, but you get what you pay for-- nothing. The app USED to be much better about 9 months ago, but there's no point in mentioning its now-defunct good points. Suffice to say, I could barely read my paper today. The button option to choose text view" or traditional (formatted for mobile vs more like a hard -copy appearance) disappeared. The text was literally jumpy (I checked other websites ; they're all fine, just the newspaper is twitchy). Some articles would not enlarge to make for easier reading. Even in the iPad, some articles are blurred. This app is not well- made or well-maintained. If I could give it NO stars, I would, but the review forces me to give it at least one. Pretend you don't see that one star. This is a zero-star, totally thumbs- down review.

Bait & Switch

Downloaded the app to access archived reporting AFTER reading the provided information that included the assurance that there would be “no charge” for iPad users.
The first article I tried to access resulted in me being flipped to the newpaper’s website, then a 15-second view was brought up of the article appeared before a subscription-required sales prompt popped up and disallowed my ability to READ the article I had searched for.
Certainly I understand that newspapers need revenue streams and I would certainly have been willing, had I been honestly approached for a digital subscription. Instead I was promised access that was not provided and I have been jumping through hoops since trying to gain a readable version of what I have been unsuccessfully researching.
Just horrible. Can’t use the app, can’t read the darn article, and can’t even get a subscription purchase to finalize so I’m just SOL.
