Ratings and Reviews
We read it everyday
We live in San Diego and read the news from home everyday. We moved here over 30 years ago (time really flies) from the Sharon area. When we came to San Diego, there was no internet or cell phones. It was much harder to keep in touch with local news. This website keeps us connected to our hometown and Youngstown area news and events. We both have our iPads and iPhones setup for notifications. My husband and I couldn't be anymore pleased with the quality of your app.
I LOVE this app!! I have a busy life and I’m always on the go. I don’t always have time to sit and watch the news at home so it’s just more convenient for me that I can just pick up my phone at anytime and check out the news and see what’s going on in my neighborhood. I don’t have any issues with this app. I give this app a 5 Star.
Home news away from home
For those like me that live most of the year away from the area, I‘m glad for this local news app. The app functions well, but it could be technically improved.
I depend on notifications (turn them ON!) and usually read the stories that interest me.
If there’s one thing I could change it would be for the content editors to show less left wing bias; It’s sometimes like you’re on the DNC payroll.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
