Rarely works Great content, terrible app. Frequently freezes and huge delays between pages. Galaxy S4

Brian Niggle

Notifications Settings Regression and High Location Usage! Hire better programmers and make them do unit testing. I dislike notifications and changing the setting doesn't work. It saddens me that people don't take pride in their work. Location usage is high on my Android device as well.

A Google User

Wonderful, when it works... Trying to share to Facebook causes a stupid loop where it continues to ask for permission over and over.

Patrick O'Hara

Alerts don't always link to stories If you get a real time alert from this app and then click on it, frequently the story you expect to go to is not there. I wish that was the worst of this apps problems. They are lucky they're the only real source of this kind.

Joe Moss

Preforms terribly I like the local content, but this is the worst performing app I've ever seen. Takes forever to load and crashes constantly. Just awful.

Joe Prusinski

Garbage No longer works. At all. Closes right away. (s5) Do not download

Eric Arcuri

Terrible Used to have to open it 3 or 4 times for it actually to work. Now doesn't open at all. Just a black screen. Terrible app.


Never works The app always stops working, the stories are old and typically not news, you can't watch the videos posted. All together the app is just like the Plain Dealer, crap.

A Google User

Loading slow Takes a long time to load. If it loads at all

A Google User

Rubbish WARNING!!! Automatic push notifications!

Steve Shenk

Slow Possibly the slowest app in the history of apps.

Kelli Swan

Yuck ... latest revamp laden w/ads (Re: nov 2014 update) I know showing ads is an economic reality for news apps, but I already miss the previous version of this app. It was so easy to scroll through the news headlines. No more! Now I've got ads, videos, big pics and other flow-breakers in my face. And BLOATED. Takes 20 seconds just to open/load! (Another update installed 1/2/15 and it is just as slow & buggy. Giving up and uninstalling this...)

William Nau

Can not turn off notifications. App worked well until latest update. Even though I have notifications turned off I keep getting them on both my Moto X (android 5.0) and Galaxy Tab S (android 4.2). I hate getting unwanted notifications from apps so I will be uninstalling this app. App is slow except on high end devices.

Kevin Vance

Unwanted notifications... looks like grade school This app was always poor, but it is getting worse. The look is grade school are project at best, but the biggest issue for me is the notifications. With the last update, the app no longer turns off notifications with the listed toggle. I tried it, and neither setting worked (they are not labeled which is which either!) So I get "breaking news" updates throughout the day. A fine OPTION, but one which I don't want. Their opinion of breaking news can be sketchy sometimes, I want to go and read an article when I want to, not have to reach for the phone when I hear it beep, only to find out the Johnny Manzel was at a party.

James Holpuch

Can't load up more than half the stories Ridulous how long it takes for the sport stories to load. Most of the time I just give up. Not an issue with usa today or espn or cbs sports. These people need to get their act together. If I was looking to advertise I wouldn't do it here!

Robert Weppler

Ridiculous news app Turns notifications back on, then notifications don't link to the story promoted. Not even included on the page! Uninstalling.

Rich Morris

Lol, look at dates of positive reviews. Most are from years ago! Multiple updates where the app keeps turning notifications on but they have improved the load time so there is that

Colin Serne

Terribly slow/crashes The latest version of the app is very slow, some stories will never load. Half of the time app will crash while loading new content.

John Simanella

Notifications can't be turned off. Option is there, but it doesn't do anything. Very close to uninstalling. Also, app is now very slow and bug laden :(

Doug Schuster

This app sucks Unwanted pushes, no way to stop the. Even when you click on a push it doesn't take you to that story. Time to uninstall

Dale W.

Plain Dealer app Unwanted notifications. No way to stop them. Just delete app and download a fox 8 or some other kind.

Kyle Muskoff

Sorry to have to uninstall I hate to lose my local news source, but I started receiving hourly notifications even though the notifications were turned off. Ridiculous that it takes over a minute to open as well.

Jim Rathburn

Cannot change pushed notification Here we go again. Push notifications will not disable. Also with other Plain Dealer apps. No wonder they are going out of business. There are no settings menu. This update pushes notifications with no option to suspend. Had to uninstall.

robert sberna

annoying can't turn off notifications, which are mainly sports related so far

Jim S

Used to work ok but now never loads Takes forever to load. I moved on to other news apps

Beth Fitzgibbons

Crashing I can't believe the upgrade has now made this app nearly impossible to use. Sad.

Norman Lucas

Slowest app on my phone Slowest to load and slowest to respond while using

Al Espen

I don't want notifications Find a way for me to turn them off or I will uninstall.

Melanie Kucharik

Used to be good This app worked well until about a month ago. Now it takes forever to load and crashes frequently. Galaxy s4.

Brendan Mcnamara

Slow Take 2-3 minutes to start up. Crashes all the time. No way to filter out sports news (most of the content)

Rich Gallegos

Crappy Runs extremely slow and constantly locks up

Jeff Pugel

Sloooow Always slow to load and refresh with new stories.

Nick Groh

Terrible at story loading and excessive background gps checks.

William Lucas

Recent updates cause slow load time The last few updates has caused the app to load painfully slow. You just stare at a blank screen for like 8 seconds, and then other splash screens before you get into the app. Please work on app speed. Disappointing.

Steve Cuccia

Needs to use Android design concepts They are trying to create the exact same UI on Android and iOS and all it does it create a poor user experience on both operating systems. You really need to create native apps for both and use standard design concepts in both.

Angelo Woods

Jobs don't work Trying to apply for jobs with LinkedIn account doesn't work fix asap

A Google User

New format and update fail I have found the most recent changes and interface to actually be much slower and confusing. I can't share stories through facebook anymore. Now it goes black for many seconds and I think it has crashed until I move on to do something else and suddenly the app pops up again.

Dave Z

Crashes repeatedly Cannot have a good experience when the app crashes constantly. Its extremely frustrating and annoying

Rick Coyle

26 seconds to load Was a great app. The Neomg media executive in charge is naked on the horse, while the minions tell the exec how everything is great in the kingdom. Ridiculously unacceptable.

Jonathan Simon

Can't share on Facebook? The new share capability only allows twitter, google+ and email? What happened to Facebook?

john ebenger

I want nothing more than to be a great app As others have described, this is a very slow moving app. If someone was using this app to find out more about our city, they probably wouldn't visit. If I was the Plain Dealer, I would put a great deal more resources into making this a great app that everyone would love. Cleveland has so many great things going on that this app that bares it's name does not do it justice. I rarely post comments about anything, but I feel very strongly about this.

Robert Hirsh

Poor attempt Excruciatingly slow to load. Very poor content. Emphasis is clearly on revenue from ads. Fail

nicole greenfield

Mistake by the Lake This app essentially does not work. Poor performance. Terrible speed. Continuously force closes. It's sad, because I think we all want the app to work.

Daniel Colbert

Mind-numbingly show Takes forever to load. Easier to go to site using browser. I hope they'll fix it, as it would be great if faster.

Kevin Whelan

Terrible app Takes forever to load. Freezes up. Scrolls very slow.

Johnathon Smiley

Love content does not work well. Better off just visiting cleveland. Com site

timothy dorsey

Very frustrating app. Slow and freezes.

Del Yates

freezes all the time and when it doesn't freeze it's really slow. Just an awful app.

Joseph Quattrone

Extreme delays Most times never loads at all, horrible performance. A real shame you can't access good content.

Gerd Jakuszeit

Way to many imbedded podcasts. Living on the west coast i hoped this app would be more user friendly and informative. Writers should write not audition for network news shows.

Greg Gathy

Slow to load, freezes.. What's going on? Older versions were better, they loaded quickly and didn't freeze. Don't know what bogging down the system, but I hope you figure it out.. *Droid Turbo with latest updates. Update: uninst/reinstalled app & new install runs better... For now. * to *** for the time being

Robert Hirsh

Poor attempt Lost another star due to no effort to improve. Excruciatingly slow to load. Very poor content. Emphasis is clearly on revenue from ads. Fail

Carmella Williams

Content good, performance poor The site provides a wide range of stories that covers everything from the weather to sports to local/area news to international news. Very good in terms of content. I am extremely disappointed with the performance of this app on Android devices. The app loads super slow and is very sluggish after it is launched. On a cosmetic not, I would also suggest changing the layout to make the articles easier to scan and give the home page a new look. PLEASE UPDATE IT ASAP!

Kenneth Marcis

Problems loading and ads abound Very problematic launching the app, opens to black screen only to force an error. When it does open, nothing special. T mobile note 4

Brad Butler

You can do better than this! Waiting for a page to load takes an eternity.

Barb Ozimek

Worst app ever It has great content. Why can't you just get it to work correctly. Takes forever to load and then it's constantly freezing.

A Google User

Wonderful, when it works... Trying to share to Facebook causes a stupid loop where it continues to ask for permission over and over. Does this on multiple devices.

Robert Keesecker

Improvement The developers managed to make the improvements to get the app to open in less than two full minutes. Great. This is a long-awaited improvement. Articles also open better, entire app more stable. Upgraded to 4 stars because the improvement is performing steadily.

Dan Peters

Slow Good content, but very slow app. Inappropriate ads on obituaries pages. As others have stated, I want this app to be good!

Michael Calkins

Business Owner This application is the worst on my cell. I dread using it but am tied to Cle. news kind of held hostage. The site is just as bad on Pc's.

Kermit Pollari

Still useless Initial load time/refresh is horrendous. And, then can't even read a simple article cause it takes minutes to load.

Justin Harris

Huge delay loading App works fine for a week or so then takes forever to load.

Melanie Kucharik

Used to be good This app worked well at first, but now it takes forever to load and crashes frequently. Galaxy s4.

Jeannine Garsee

Wat too slow to load and only a bare fraction of the website's stories available.

Jim Fisher

A mind boggling bad app! Frequently delays or crashes.

A Google User

Rubbish WARNING!!! Automatic push notifications!

Sherry Baker

Freezes up too much.

Jarhead Semper Fidelis

Slow like a snail crashes often

Ted Mayo

Takes forever to load

Joe Porter

Terribly Slow and buggy. It takes a minute to open every time. When I click on events calendar, it'll display a few items and then vibrate 3 times, and go blank. The stores are slow to load as well. If breaking news happens and you click on the banner, the story doesn't show when the app finally opens.

Jeff Pugel

Always slow to load and refresh with new stories. Also downgrading now to 1 star as it doesn't allow me to move app to SD storage.

Darryl Brown

Real slow to down load time. To slow, this app used to be a fast loader but a update was done about two years ago and it haven't been the same since.

Kimberly Arbaugh

Won't take you there! I get updates, sometimes"live" stories and when I tap it,it takes me to the stories I browsed through already AND I can't find the story anywhere. I'm uninstalling.

Ron Finklestein

It's ok The news they provide is good when you can get to it. Way too many advertisements that you can't fast forward or skip through. I've stopped watching the videos for that reason

Jerrel Banks

Irritating flaws Notifications don't link directly to the article. Comments are not moderated (flooded with bigotry and racism), these 2 problems are big enough for me not to filly use the's a shame because the news stories ARE interesting

Larry B

App Fixed - Limited News Stories Though After years of neglect the app is up and running again. A few more unobtrusive ads now also.

Reggie Hamilton

Improvement App has improved recently. Previously, it would take a long time to open. Much, much better recently!

Mark Harris

New version Much quicker than before and better share capability. Not much the app can do about the quality of journalism, though.

Lino Ramos

Keeping UTD on Cleveland Great app to keep up with hometown news. Go Cavs. Go Browns . Go Indians.

Andrew Stein

Improvement Good speed, only issue is that you can only access the most recent 10 or so articles in a section.

Joe Shoaf

App works well Nice to get hometown news so easily while living out of State.

Martin Presser

Tried to get into sports, I couldn't It's nothing special

Norm Lucas

Latest version working much better. Hopefully changes stay.

Timothy Kelley

Cleveland. com It get job done . . . but need some closed captions.

Marla Jones

Grest app. Not intrusive. Doesnt require access to all your personal settings. Well written.

Peter Finta

My source for Cleveland news. It's all here.

Lisa Rosenthal

Slow to open on my phone but easy to use. .

David Udelf

Finally An App that actually loads within a reasonable time. Great job!!!

Michael Reber

Moved to California This app keeps me connected to Cleveland and home!

Avion Johnson

Keep me informed even though i live out of town

Jonathan Presti

Great style Easy to use app. Love the sports info.

Justin English

So wonderful I cancelled my newspaper subscriptions.

Vincent Grimes

Getting there It still need improvements some areas...

Bob Miko

Excellent but needs to improve search function

kevin gibson-bey

Better now Used to suck much better now

Steven Holland

Informative As good as any newspaper.

David Leonard

Much faster than the old version.

Tom Tyson

Good app for local news
