Tribune Publishing part of our News & Magazines and have average installs from 50000 to 100000. Last Update Aug. 12, 2016. Google play rating is 59.8161. Current verison is 3.11. Actual size 14.0 MB.
Update...avoid. nothing but ads Since their update, this has become a pay site. There are constant pop-up ads and ads placed throughout the story feed. Plus, about 40% of the stories require a subscription. And that number rises weekly. It's just not worth the trouble anymore. After years of use, I removed the app.
Premium stories? I pay for a 7 day a week subscription and now I have to pay to see them on my tablet? I don't think so Sentinel.
I am paying 4.99 a month. I am hitting a pay wall for about 1/3 of the articles. I thought I was getting complete access. The call center in the Phillipines is totally worthless. They have no record of my account. I have called and e mailed repeatedly with no response. The Orlando Sentinel is a complete joke in print. But, it's the only newspaper available for daily state and local news. Someone pkease help me!
New software is worse than original This newer software not only charges for a handful of the articles to be read, it is littered with advertisements. It also is constant opening web pages, and google play to try to get me to download apps, just from scrolling around.
Less Content Than Before After installing the new app and subscribing for full digital access I found myself with less available content than the free version I used to enjoy. (Examples: No local news sections, no weather.) Pay for less. Go figure. What is available looks nice, however.
Do NOT update! After a FAIL to launch (& having to uninstall/reinstall) I THEN discover that the OS app is no longer free & informative, letting me save articles & search out writers, among other niceties. Now you get "five free premium" stories a MONTH (which you have to register for), but after that, pay up! YOU HOSED US ORLANDO SENTINEL! I've lost all trust in you. We should have been TOLD what the update would do to our beloved app. Maxwell, Bianchi, Kassab, Owens, Diaz, Boas, et al, you're too good for this place.
Miss the old app I have read this multiple times daily and have for years on mobile. I agree 100% with what most people are complaining about. The pop ups to the play store continuously that usually force me to go back to the main page. Also that a lot of the sections were removed. I understand charging for premium services since this is about making money, but I better get something better than what is being offered. I might as well just use the browser, or get my local news somewhere else.
Keeps getting worse Leave it to the sentinel. They are one of the worst newspapers ever and they're app is even worse. Add after add keeps popping up and blocking the stories. You are forced to watch these adds if you want to read.
Annoying Where did the county news sections, crime, etc go? Good app gone bad.
Excessive Adverts For Apps Each time an article is opened, I'm redirected to an as for some Android game, open table app, or some other nonsense and have to close it all out each time. Very annoying.
If I am paying for a subscription.. Why do I have to wait for a 5 second ad to time out before I can get into reading the news?
App doesn't work After the update it just force-closes. Fix your app, engineers. Update. The app works now. I won't pay for digit contents, so I'm giving it 4 stars.
New & Improved... & So Much The Better! My only real complaint is that I paid for the subscription service and still get to many ads! For a hard copy newspaper I expect ads. When I pay for app I expect zero ads.
Ruined a good app Latest update is not user friendly. Its too generic. Also asking for money to view content. Use to read it everyday. Rarely even give it a look now.
New update does not open 12-10-14 issue has been fixed. Thank you for your response and for your assistance! I have updated my review for this App! Thank you again!
Last update ruined it App was okay but now I'm done with it. Last update fills it with full screen ads, and it randomly tries to open my play store multiple times while in articles. Some stories are also now "premium" which require a membership. I'd understand maybe a couple banner ads, but all of this combined...I'll just use the web version
Constant pop-ups and redirecting me to other sites and apps makes reading and browsing a pain and disruptive.
Bad update! Way too many ads. Also can't select news by region anymore. Horrible update.
Problem solved As posted by others, if the update isn't working, uninstall the app then install again. Should open. After using this app, I miss the previous version.
What a joke Want me to pay for reading the stories?.....lol this has been a "B" rated app to begin with and now you want to charge me for it? 1st off you need to send your reporters back to school and teach them proper grammar and spelling....And 2nd...find real headlines.
Good Update has improved the quality of the website.
What are they thinking of It appears to me there is a lot more advertisement on the update then before. Just like previous people who have rated it I agree with the fact that Orlando Sentinel is just trying to get more money from you. I personally like the old version better.
New update has ruined app The new update has solved the problems I was having. I also like the new layout for the application.
Better than old Fishwrap Lets face it.. the Newpaper biz in America is broke. The Tribune is ancient with old world technology however this upgraded app for The Orlando Sentinel is quite the opposite. Firstly, remove the old app from your system. Now download new app and register or sign in. Go to System App settings, find OS and adjust settings, now open app and adjust setting there as well, notification button etc. It looks like after you read a specific amount of hot stories, you will be charged. You knew this was coming right?
New version 12-06-14 It is amazing how stupid this company can be. NO ONE tested this update, not even one time, or they would have found that the new version doesn't launch, except under very limited circumstances. Stupid ... stupid .... stupid ... Call me with a PO for $5k and I'll tell you the work around until you morons can get it fixed.
USELESS Since The Update I finally figured out that to get the new version to work, you have to go into the app settings and first Force Stop and then Delete Data and Cache. With that done I was able to run the app. This new version is COMPLETELY USELESS. No longer can you find Scott Maxwell's column, Ticked Off, or even narrow down the stories to just one county. Those options are now gone. All you can see now are the top stories in the major sections only. I am going back to reading what I WANT in my browser.
Bad since "upgrade" Since it's upgraded, it will not even open. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall. Not working.
Uninstall old version first Didn't work until I uninstalled (after updating from old version) and reinstalled the new version. If it keeps crashing, give this a try. HTC One M7
Works better than before but doesn't have a weather section.
Fixed If you uninstall before updating it will work fine.
New update It absolutely will not open after recent update on my Samsung phone.
Charging me now ??!! Unbelievable !!! You bait me into thinking the update was going to be great , and then you charge me to use your app ??!! The update was just an excuse to squeeze $$$ out of everyone who enjoyed it for free in the past. DELETE DELETE DELETE !!!
Doesn't open Updated today and it won't even open. Guess I will have to wait for the new update.
Keeps shutting down with new update Was pretty ok before now it wont even start up?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
No good New update messed it up, won't open!
New Update This New update is terrible, this paper on line keeps getting worse and worse...Not even worth reading anymore. .
Another slantinel fail! Way to make sure the app actually worked before releasing the update
This worked Application manager force stop app clear data and it works again.
stopped working update broke the app on my Razr Maxx HD
Possible fix Need to clear cache after new version.
Latest update makes app not worth it Recent update makes all articles premium. It's one thing to make columnist content premium. But every single piece of news? No thanks. UPDATE: They released another update, but now, instead of all articles being considered premium (a likely mistake), you are now only able to view 10 articles a month for free. So essentially no change but to confirm that the app is worthless. I'll be going to a new source for news I guess.
Does Not Meet Expectations I subscribe because I want to read local Orlando news, but this app is sub-par. My main gripe is that content is very poorly organized. It's like no one is bothering to figure out what constitutes top news vs. breaking news. The same story appears multiple times with different dates. Sometimes photos appear with no text. Sometimes a photo icon that shows up in story link does not show up in larger form when you open up the story. Compared to other newspaper apps, this one sucks.
I have 4 prints delivered to my home which i pay for. Now i cant even read the news on my phone. What a garbage update. Fire the genious who thought of this. I would give it a 0 but the app doesnt allow me to do so. FIX IT!
New not worth paying for This app sucked when you could read the news for free. Now the app is great but you have to pay to read the news stories which are not written very well to begin with.
Waste. Even though I subscribe to the print Orlando Sentinel, I can't read the articles. Uninstalled!
Latest update What to hell orlando sentinel??? Now all stories are premium and I can only read 10 a month??? Or I can pay extra to read everything.... nope, I'll just continue to use the other free Florida news apps. Big mistake on your part to change to this format. I'm sure your traffic is going to nosedive now!
Good app...lots of problems The idea of this app is very, very good. There are so many glitches and issues, however, I only give it two stars (and I've been using it for YEARS, well before the new formats). Enjoy it, but expect lots of waiting, videos that DO work but then ones that don't, and several other issues.
made all stories premium stories .... hurry up and fix or just get my news some where else . you ruined this app deleting app
Not worth it! I have used this app ever since I've had a smart phone, about six years. I thought the content was unbiased which is the reason I chose it. Now after the recent update I can only read 10 articles before I have to pay!?! Looks like I'll be moving on.... Sad greed has takin over!!
Bugs or a scam Hint: Uninstall then reinstall the app to restart the counter. All articles are premium and the counter did not restart in December.
Says I'm using up free articles But I am a print subscriber logged into my unlimited digital account on my phone. Why can't this app tell that all the articles should be "free" for me? The same account works on the website just fine.
Past reader They should just charge for the app. You need to pay to read the news.
Not paying! Why in the world would I pay for this?? There are so many, way better news apps. I only had this to begin with because it was free, not because it was good.
Not free That suck ..not free..just moving on to other local new that are free...................... FOX 35 IS FREE
Uninstalled Not worth the time to consider if it's worth 1 of 10. Not worth the money to pay for.
Not worthy Sorry but I'm not paying for these B grade stories written in very poor spelling and grammer. ...I pay for the paper already but found it a little more convenient to read from this app on the go.....but as I said I'm not paying for poor quality product.
Bad choice! There goes my way of being in contact with Orlando.... i will find some other source. I'm not paying for articles anymore!! Uninstalling app...now!
Do not update Once updated all articles become premium content and as such you will only have access to 10 articles for free and then one must subscribe in order to continue reading. I would think that the paper would provide local news for free to promote the city and create a sense of community. My home town paper, the Miami Herald provides free content on their app. If I could give zero stars I would.
Uninstalling Not paying, sorry. Every other news outlet is happy for you to read their stories for free. You should probably read your reviews, it's pretty telling.
Uninstall, stand up to all premium content Every story premium even breaking news & obituaries. I guess you made a decision for most to uninstall this app. Most online newspapers do what your app had before, some content as premium but pertinent information, that which helps the community understand the community not blocked. You will understand in the long run as people react negative toward this decision, yes a newspaper is a business but it also serves as being part of a community.
Uninstalling Every story is premium? Well that means none of them are quality. I'll just use a tv news app or something else. Says I've read 10 articles this month. I haven't read one.
This app is useless without paying for a subscription. It's a joke! I only get to read 10 articles/month without a subscription..... Ugh! I would read more than that every day. This is worthless.....
Uninstall Pay for news articles? Really? Just going to use Google now. Bad move OS.
Once you update, you have to pay to read more than 10 articles a month. Ridiculous. Uninstalling.
Terrible idea Way to limit content.... this will cause you to loose readers and advertising and likely cease to exist
Rubbish Why should one be paying for those upgrades....just uninstalled the app..
Every story still premium Even with the latest update, all stories remain premium. Not like this in the iOS version! A crappy app for a crappy paper!
Uninstalled Limited to 10 news articles a month. Need to pay beyond that.
Forget it I'm not paying for this.
10 articles per month?! 10 articles per month is ridiculous! Uninstalled
Every article is now considered premium? I might consider this plausible if the editor checked for spelling and grammar! Come on Orlando Sentinel, so much for community...
Not paying Why do you think I am going to pay for some story while i can Google it for free?
Shame on you not cool I not happy I have to pay to look at the news where I have other ways to get the news for free shame on u
Very Bad Are you kidding me. They only give you 10 free stories a month. I will get my local news from another source.
Can't read You might as well call this a paid app because you can't read any of the articles without a subscription. Deleting now.
Every Story is now Premium This newest update (11/24) caused all my stories to become premium and require me to sign in. Now instead of any clicks in this app, you'll get none. Was a nice app, but these 'stability improvements' ruined it. Uninstalled.
All articles are premium?! This used to be great...now all stories are premium. You gotta fix!
Completely changed app Now every article you click says that it is premium. Uninstalled, won't be using it again.
Problem solved Doesn't open often since latest update. When in the rare event it does open most of the articles fail to load.
Terrible now after update. App doesn't open. Every story is premium.
worthless... what's the point of having a news app if you can't even access ANYTHING without a paid subscription? might as well price this app at $9.99 and save us all the time it takes to download and then immediately uninstall it..
Confusing There appears to be no logic to display of stories.
S. L. O. W. It is constantly updating, so you can only get a few stories at a time while the little circles turn and turn... Crap. This newspaper is such a sad shell of its former glory. And someone should really get them to define the difference between "top stories" and "breaking news". The identical stories are in each section. Pointless. The local TV stations cover the same stories, albeit with less depth.
Uninstalling Every story is premium? Well that means none of them are quality. I'll just use a tv news app or something else. Says I've read 10 articles this month. I haven't read one. Wish I could give minus stars.
Everything is premium? Really News from a week ago is premium? C'mon fellows, old news should hardly be considered premium.
10 free stories I read my 10 free stories in February, it is now March 5th and it is saying I have already read my 10 free stories but I have yet to read one in March!
Now they charge to read every article after 10....why would anyone do that when they can google it and find the same story somewhere else for free?
Ap is slow to refresh. Lots of ads
S. L. O. W. .... It's still constantly updating. The circles round and round endlessly. Subscription cancelled.....It is constantly updating, so you can only get a few stories at a time while the little circles turn and turn... Crap. This newspaper is such a sad shell of its former glory. And someone should really get them to define the difference between "top stories" and "breaking news". The identical stories are in each section. Pointless. The local TV stations cover the same stories, albeit with less depth.
Easy and Dependable I get Orlando News as it happens with very little drain on my phone resources.
Works well. Great coverage.
REALLY POOR APP! I love the Orlando Sentinel, but this app has sucked since day 1!! EXTREMELY slow response time. Ads appear over the article text even though I'm logged on as a paid digital subscriber. Sometimes it just goes wacky with the articles going over each other when I scroll. If the Internet version of the paper wasn't so hard to see on my phone, I'd uninstall this in a heartbeat! Please invest a little money in a competent programmer & give this app a COMPLETE face-lift! Please!
Content for fifth graders Slow loading times. Horrible liberal slant on everything, reading level of a below average fifth grader.
Better than old Fishwrap Lets face it.. the Newspaper biz in America is broke. This Orlando Sentinel app lets you read 10 premium stories then it offers you monthly rates to continue. Nerds can simply go System Setting, Apps, find OS, Clear cache, settings etc. The app will start over allowing 10 stories. Then repeat process if you desire to. Online, in your browser its all free! Go figure...
The best news for Orlando I really enjoy this paper because it goes more in depth than the other news organizations. I went ahead and subscribed. It has paid off nicely.
Use to be better, but better than nothing.
Just okay They want to charge you for this information, but nobody else does. News is not up to date for breaking news. Quality of what they put on here is poor.
You pay for a subscription and to many ads There are way too many ads for a paid subscription. I like to scan the news stories but I keep getting the stupid pizza hut ads, the beach ad, and a couple other constantly in the feed. I can take a couple ads but seeing the same ad in my face 20 to 30 times in a course of 10 minutes scrolling through the stories if to much. Use Google or the ap for your news.
