Can't turn off notifications with new update Updated this app as usual but I then started getting random news stories popping up on my phone as notifications. I go into settings to disable notification but that option is now grayed out with a check that you can no longer uncheck.

No text to read AGAIN!!! What is use of clicking on an article only to find there is just a picture - no article. happened on 12/31/14 - was fixed - now back on 1/1/15. Love this app when it works - now useless! Please fix.

Ron Carnes

Crap No articles appear anywhere, just ads. Tried update, uninstall/reinstall, still an empty husk.

Steve Lukshides

Flaws go unfixed The back button doesn't work and it often won't refresh the list of stories. There have been countless times I look at the story list and they are all dated from last month, the last time that I looked at that particular category. There's no way to force a refresh and waiting is just a waste of time, it updates when it wants to. Ugh.

Elise Autenrieth

Why do I have to right swipe twice on the app's main screen to scroll through headlines?

Bill Davidson

Craaash! Constant crash on Nexus 7!

Edgardo Barrios

What a piece of junk Continually crashes

Tae H. Kim

Odd permissions behavior? I'm curious to know why this app has "Auto Wake Up" 1,938 times since I've downloaded the app a month ago. Luckily I have 'Permission Guard' on my phone...

Paul Lipton

No search and can't really use in a plane No search, no offline reading, no saving like NYT app, which offers often to refresh all sections when connected and our Wifi only. A basic app that does the basics adequately.

Adam Andrews

Good app Able to get all the news. Not just some of it. Simple to use.

bridget downey

Terrible app Don't bother

Greg S.

Please fix. I have been a long time user and loved this add. But since the in-article adds have been added close to half of the articles are blank with just the word " null " between two advertisement bars

Scot Brown

Data hog The was good until just about every story is a video.

A Google User

Awesome Keeps me in the philly loop, living in Florida!!!

Richie Gill

Racist Liberals Nothing but hateful allegations against innocent white Americans. Horrible

Marty Frappolli

Works well w intuitive interface

ARC ARC

A+++ Really well designed and complete piece of software.

John Bradley

Navigation is flawed-tries to be too cool The developers of this app try to make it so cool that it fails to provide a simple format to navigate the news articles. The side navigation bar appears in the left side of the screen sporadically which pushes the article off the right side so you can't see the full article. You can tell the intention of the developer was to show off their software dev skills rather than produce a functional product.

Jared Hart

Sync capabilities? Doesn't sync the news. Sorry but month old news isn't fun to read over and over again.

Nat Tow

OK. Trying to share the news stories to other platforms is either impossible or not user friendly. Otherwise its an OK AP

barney bice

Trash. Crashes repeatedly. Come on! This isn't rocket science. Please make it easy to read the local news!

Ella Cobb

Excellent. Love it. It's up to date & works beautifully. I'm truly grateful for the app. I have a few other news paper apps. One gives news from all over the world! But can't get any Philadelphia news from it. In fact, I haven't been able to get Philly news from any other app! " Thanks guys."

Reginald Johnson

Good to have on your phone

Ray Aviles

Love it Good informational app

Johnnie Mae Butler

Non-functional Would not open!

Edward J. Connor

No improvement Released an update around Christmas, but didn't fix any of the bugs. What was the point?

Hassan Rida

Terrible since update Worked great before the recent update,now it is horrible! The only thing that works is the forced ads!!!

Michael Reiser

Terrible "upgrade" Ever since this New upgrade, this app is simply unusable on my HTC EVO 4G LTE w/ 4.0. I get days/week old news, constant crashes, and no way to close the app. I would give it zero stars if I could.

A Google User

Much Improved UI Opening app gets you to a display of top stories. Nice organization makes accessing section of interest easy. Works fine on Galaxy S3.

Michael Brown

Poor app The content will not update on my EVO 4G, the news is at least a week old. Going to delete it. It's a shame because it could easily be a 5 star app with some effort by the developers.

A Google User

Great app Works perfectly on droid bionic, but it would be nice if they allowed you to change background to black with white text...

Tom O'Donnell

Deleted, stay away Up grade killed it, totally Sucks now, doesn't even update stories, still stories under breaking news from thanksgiving, it Dec 12 now lolol

David Wengert

Finally Great to see Philly news available on an easy to use app.

A Google User

Cannot exit app The back button does not exit app, just keeps loading pages with ads. No way to exit, keeps looping.

MrKupsky

I have the app on an android tablet... can't load it to my samsung S6. 505 error?

MickBurkellc

Horrible app. Story pops up and when you go to site the story doesn't exist. Uninstalling now.

Paul Lipton

No search, sideshow fails, and can't really use in a plane Good newspaper. Terrible app. No search, no offline reading. The article slideshow didn't work on two different phones. A basic app that fails in many ways. Also navigation is flawed. You often find yourself returning from an article at the top of a list, rather than where you left off. Restaurant section has stopped updating. La Ban's table chat series is no where to be found. And, this app NEVER IMPROVES.

Love this app when it works - now useless! Please fix. OKAY!!! IT'S 8/20/15!!!!....NO TEXT AGAIN!!! .....Thinking I should just uninstall and save the aggravation.

Joyce Sample

Needs an update When you receive a notification of a news story and you hit the link, it does not take you to the story. Also, there's no way to search for that story.

L Bridge

App isnt that great so i only use it to get a general idea of what's going on in the city. It needs a lot of work.

Ron Cori

Error message Error message 505 when loading...1 week later...still won't load. Awful. Won't work on Galaxy...

Joe David

App crashes every time. Worse than ever.

Sean Minder

Crashed Tried to read article and the app kept crashing

Crystal Prioleau

I like this one

Alexandra Fensterer

The app just didn't work. It doesn't give me up to date news. No matter how what I do, uninstall and reinstall, it doesn't work.

Mark Dabrowski

Articles don't load With a new galaxy tab 4 the articles load real slow or not at all. Using same WiFi as old tablet and phone with no problems.

Patrick Donahue

Articles don't load either New format on my laptop, but still the old non-working app for my tablet. What is the problem?

Scott Starnadori

Garbage. If you send a push notifications for breaking news at least take me to the article when I click it. Takes you to the main page where breaking news is nowhere to be found. One of many annoyances. Uninstalled.

John Aleksiejuk

Good articles, ok app. I can't view photo slideshows on any device. On my Galaxy tablet, sometimes articles don't load properly--either no text or missing first few paragraphs. Navigation is simpler on my phone than my tablet too.

John Bradley

The side navigation bar appears in the left side of the screen sporadically which pushes the article off the right side so you can't see the full article. You can tell the intention of the developer was to show off their software dev skills rather than produce a functional product. UPDATE: still a POS after 3 years development. Using portrait mode, it displays too much white space between paragraphs. If switch to landscape mode you lose part of the article or it displays the first article instead.

Kate Seltzer

This is one of my favorite apps but it won't work on my samsung galaxy S7. Hopefully you'll figure out a fix so it works on this device.

Bipin Bajracharya

No horoscope Jacqueline's Horoscope is the major attraction of Philly. How can you not include it in this app ? Include it and it is a 5 starer.

Joseph Ra

As much as I would like to keep up on Philly News... Not sure about the paper itself but does an editor even review these articles? No proofreading? Besides that, why must I end the process because there's no exit or quit option? Also, can we not get a responsive web design so pictures dont take up the ENTIRE screen?? I'm uninstalling out of sheer frustration.. ive had it. Hey at least it hasnt been crashing on me lately..

Patrick Bair

Really useless app Searching online is better. This app is really useless. No search function. Menu omits important sections, e.g., opinion.

Steve Holland

Needs upgrade Not very intuitive. Makes you jump through a lot of hoops for old news.

Tim Kaiser

Notifications? No. This app would be great if it didn't randomly decide to turn notifications back on every three days or so.

Bob Watson

Disappointed in this app
