Bad Update 12/23 - Latest update loads incredibly slow. I've been using other news apps instead. 3/14 - Just checked back in. Your app remains broken 3 months later! It barely loads at all on my Nexus. You need a new IT dept!

Chris Bowen

Open App First Thing in the Morning I open the app immediately after I wake up. Then I sh*t, shower, and shave and hope the app has loaded updated content by that time. This is seriously the slowest Android app I've ever had on my phone. It's really a shame because this used to be a great app.

Rick Turner

Will this ever work? I'm convinced this pathetic app's reason for being is to drive readers to the print edition. Takes forever to load and then won't display articles. Well, I'm not buying. Literally.

Kenneth Klingler

ADMF I kept hoping they would fix problems since Sep update. Extreemly slow to load(if at all), freezes, and crashes. I'll check back every now and then to see if troubles corrected. Used to be the "go to" app.

Kevin Kozain

Too slow to load & annoying alerts This app is too slow to load, which is representative of poor programing. The alerts don't turn off, and the home screen doesn't refresh properly. Also the content is often poorly written as if no proofreading was performed. It's embarrassing that the State Capital of PA is represented by this news organization.

Bill Brown

Awful, takes so long to load that my screen times out. If this is the best you can do it's time to get out of the app business. Want to uninstall but keep thinking it HAS to be fixed soon.

Carolyn Butcher

Hate, hate, hate it! Second update that is crap. It locks my phone up every time I try to open the app. I am deleting the entire thing.

Eileen Benfer

I so enjoy Penn Live app on my android tablet. Keep up the good work. Thanks for being such a reliable news source.

Chris Shuttlesworth

Stop with the alerts!! I have disabled the alerts, and yet, they still show up. Please fix this. I'll also echo a number of other comments around application performance and speed, but fixing the alerts will take this app a long way!

Jeff Miller

Terrible App Takes forever to load and sometimes refuses to update additional news stories when scrolling to bottom of page. Is this a news app when the home page is 90% sports stories when I check what NEWS happened at night?

Re-Shock 83

It's ok I'm thankful for this app for its hourly updates on the news BUT it's so annoyingly slow.

justin prince

Don't bother. Awful. Used to be great, now doesn't even load. If it does, stories don't open. Waste of space...deleting. Based on # of bad reviews and continued lack of functionality, they don't care either.

Marlene Simpson

Penn live app To slow to load. This is the worst app I have ever used.

Doug Boltz

Extremely slow to load. Quits working all the time. Time to give it up..

Mark Shade

Worse & Worse App hasn't opened for the past 3 days. Lame.

Jessyca Kellogg

The worst app ever! The app constantly freezes. When it does work, it is so slow that it's not worth even using. Deleting app entirely.

Robert Arp

Very slow to load now.

Sarah DeHaas

Horrible since the update The app runs incredibly slow and crashes often. The old app used to allow you to refresh the home page by pulling down at the top. Now, you have to use a side menu that freezes and rarely works as it should.

Brody T

Very poor Update 12/2014. STILL UNIMPRESSED. The old pennlive app worked perfect for me. I rarely had a problem. Takes forever to open, when it does it freezes, updating articles takes 100 years. Very unimpressed. I've been using other central pa news apps since no steps are being taken to fix this

Sharon Edinger

New format stinks Since the new format, this app freezes up, goes to black screen, and crashes. NOT an improvement over last software app update

Thomas Auman

Update sucks Not happy with the "new" version. Go back to the old way

A Google User

Poor performance since the last update. Very slow and the font is difficult to read.

Claire H

Can't refresh and is not responsive

Hunter Deibler

Sucked since upgrade Used to be easy to use and fast but now its slow and freezes since they did an upgrade. 1*

Jack Seefeldt

Worth keeping? Not sure. Slow and clunky. Consumes a lot more than its share of resources. Lately couldn't get it to do anything beyond displaying the splash screen endlessly. Had to clear cache and data to revive it. App needs serious tightening up in both technical implementation and content presentation.

Dean Sanders

Upgrade is ruining it Very slow to open (well over a minute with a blank screen). No longer switches to landscape mode. Looks better than the prior version, but I read less because it's so much slower.

Tom O'Connor

Slow This app is terrible. Either slow or non-responsive. It takes a long time to open and freezes.

John Cheeseman

Good to get news but hate traffic & breaking news alerts. Have not found where to disable this like is found in many other apps

Dan Hassell

Drains battery! It is too power hungry. Uninstall!

Jeffrey Fischbach

Okay Can't share on Facebook!

Kelby Adams

Sep 19 Update killed it. Agree with others. After the Sep 19 Update, the app eats data in the background like a pig. 300 mb in two days, and i only used it actively once. After i uninstalled, it left crap in the system that continued to eat data, the system labels it "Removed Apps". Prior to this, the app was awesome. Please fix the data issue.

Kevin Fincher

Horrible I hit NO for push notifications but im still getting them.

Chris Markel

Terrible update Non-responsive or slow every time. Do not install!

Elliot McConnell

New update is horrible September's update ruined this app. The old version wasn't incredible but at least it didn't take forever to launch and consume memory.

A Google User

Was a nice app, new update not good for phones. All you can see is a picture and maybe a 1 word article description. Please give us the option to change layout.

Andrew Kreider

Update After update the app is constantly communicating and eating up data.

Ryan Groff

Huge battery hog!!!!

A Google User

Fail After latest update (complete rewrite) the app doesn't open at all. Says there was an error and to check my connection. I tried it with wifi and 3g.

Christopher Trace

Needs Major Updating Always crashes. A snail can travel faster than this app. I guess I will need to get my news updates from other media sources!

Kimberly Casonato

Don't be in a hurry Extremely slow...

Gene Pogasic

Slow slow slow Uninstalling. No more current than the two day old news in the print edition

Thomas Firey

Desperately needs redesign Latest version's log-in function doesn't work for either FB or PennLive account. Original navigation problems are still there.

A Google User

Slowest Android app I have Takes more than 30 seconds to open. Ridiculous amount of time. Faster to load the mobile page in my browser. And ads don't show up (not that I mind) in case the advertisers care. Let's get with the times, pennlive.

Rbt Wir

Almost worthless Not as bad on a PC, but the mobile app is almost worthless. Long load times, crashes.

Jayne Abrams

Frustrated trying to upload to Android phone! But excellent on I-pad! Old, repeated "news", way too much high school and PSU sports. Very good Obituary format on phone, not very good on I-pad. Comments sections come and go..... Frustrating trying to search...

Bill Brown

Awful, takes so long to load that my screen times out. If this is the best you can do it's time to get out of the app business. Want to uninstall but keep thinking it HAS to be fixed soon. This app is so bad it reflects poorly on Patriot News and developer.

Scott Schaffner

Too Long To Open! What bugs did you fix?????? Maybe the bugs crawling out your head! Why does it take so long to open your app? One of the worse apps . Since your company only prints 3 papers a week this app should be much better. I would prefer having the paper delivered 7 days a week rather than waiting for this app to open. Still no major update. What's the problem?

Daniel Sheaffer

FIX IT Was great app with local news and alerts, after update never loads and crashes. Please fix

Bill Graham

Piece of crap Presented by an incompetent staff of programmers. Can no longer log in to comment.

Gary Wells

Works fine for me. The app loads quickly, even on my slow DSL connection out here in the boondocks. Must have been some refinements recently.

Beth McBride

Terrible So slow. Its faster to wait for the news to come on tv


Terrible app. It's hard to imagine in this day in age, that a company such as the patriot news can't even build a decent news app!!!! Oh wait! They can't even deliver a newspaper on time, why should I even be surprised..DONT WASTE YOUR TIME DOWNLOADING THIS JUNK APP!!

Richard Garman

Terrible Stories won't load...basically worthless

Barbara kaufman

Slow loading Needs updated. So frustrating to use.

A Google User

Junk Crashes. Extremely slow updates. Has little value

Andrea Hollis

Takes FOREVER to load only to still maintain its slug like pace as you cycle between the different articles.

Melanie Boyer

Still the worst. How many bad reviews does it take until this app gets a makeover?

Sam Rickrode

It seems to take 30-45 seconds to load. It's like having a dial up connection on my phone.

Nate Graham

Don't do it It seriously takes forever for this app to open. You can set news alerts, but by the time you click on the alert, and the app opens...the event is already in the history book.

Dago Gomez

biased political views incredibly biased with politics, they don't present me with facts on both sides, instead they slander one side and praise the other in an attempt to make my mind up for me..

Lawrence Hill

Ok It seem bigger and brighter. I still find more thing that be on Pennlive I want to see through Google first.

Geanne Yohn

Gloom and Doom Very focused on the bad stuff. Depressing read. They call themselves "local" but few local stories.

Elliot Markovitz

It's just OK Not enough local news. Too much sports and silly stories on the home page.

Stephen Friedman

Great news app Easy to use and full of excellent content. A must have app for any cell or tablet.

Justin Wenger

Another left wing biased news source.

Lynn Carl

Very slow opening up.

Janet Griscavage

First Read in the morning Where I go to find out what happened overnight

Mark Stottlemyer

I think they fixed it!!


Much improved! Penn Live improves with each release.

Latroy Wilson

Great for local news update Just what the title says.

Remain Anonymous

Very good. I use it every day. It's well done.

james betsill

My Town. My News. WHENEVER I Need it. AWSOME!

Lawrence Scott

Good up to date paper for the burg

Mark Alexander-Gray

Great up to the minute news.

Larry Beyer

Well Done Use it daily.

Jerry Gould
