  • Needs work

    By Chomperdog
    Reading is cumbersome and approximately once a week the app looses my subscription so it has to be deleted and reinstalled. I like reading the local paper, but it is a pain to deal with.
  • Constant Problems

    By BackJackDoItAgain
    I am continuously getting locked out of my account on my iPad after reading three articles in spite of having a full print subscription. I’ve deleted the app and reloaded it only to get locked out again. Very frustrating.
  • Nope...

    By JHawk8
    You can’t access the news unless you pay money. Rip off foe a liberal news small town paper. Their main focus is to run down the police. ?? Why...what are you hiding?
  • App is useless after last update.

    By Todd the Bod58
    Every time I attempt to use this app, it loads then freezes. Cannot navigate to any stories.
  • Terrible app - don’t waste your time

    By lakelandr
    Most annoying: Randomly updates while scrolling through headlines, loosing my place. Same stories appear two or three times. Slow load times. Often stalling and turning non responsive. Restart app and will usually load. No local news section I tell you what, whoever developed this app needs to get a clue.
  • It’s a local newspaper app without local news

    By Scarnevale
    The new update, and the last several tbh, have made this app useless to me. I go to the ledger for LOCAL news. I got to the national news for NATIONAL news. Tell me about our community. I don’t go to the ledger to hear about riots in Europe. I want to know about the house fire around the corner, the community fair in Bartow, the farmers markets around our community. Make local news your focus and I would love this app. As of now? I will probably delete it. Sad way to go out...
  • Opinions biased

    By whpolk47
    Very liberal biased opinions. Dropped the paper copy and tried the application after 2 plus years no different.
  • Great reporting

    By Bob Nickell
    The Ledger has a good stable of aggressive and objective reporters. They, alone, deserve five stars. However, the Opinion Director drags the paper down to a three. His editorials are biased and contain many factual inaccuracies.
  • Excellent app

    By Loyd harold
    Great hometown newspaper app; easily navigated. Really enjoy Gary White articles and insights.
  • A+

    By Blueline007
    The best newspaper app for lakeland by far.
