  • Restore Traditional Newspaper View

    1
    By Dr. Ping Eye
    I don’t like the new format. Would love to see the traditional newspaper (replica) view returned. If it is available I can’t figure out how to get it. Also, many old stories from months ago still listed. It is hard to scroll through and find just today’s stories as the preview headlines don’t give dates of publication. Finally, too many video adds that take over the app even though I am a paid subscriber.
  • Worst change you could make!

    If I wanted to get my news in an Apple or Google format, that is where I will go. The purpose of a digital version of a local paper is so I can ‘read’ it rather than get a delivered paper. If I wanted to do the category scroll routine, it certainly wouldn’t be at a local paper. I go to the ‘newspaper’ version and read it, but what’s the point. You have over-evolved, go back while you still can and fire whomever made the decision to change.
  • Dispise the new app!

    I understand print paper is becoming extinct however the new and “improved” app won’t even let me see obituaries! I have a full digital subscription and I cannot see parts of the paper without going to the replica. This new one is tremendously annoying!

    Now they want $12.99 a month to use this app. Not a chance in the world.
  • Watch out.

    WHY DOES IT SHOW ADS BASED ON LOCATION IF “Never” was chosen on location privacy?? While on vacation they showed me local ads in Florida. Eye opening. Look I pay 12 bucks a month for KC Star so I do support them but now I can’t.
  • Would be nice not to get sports alerts

  • News Limit $$$$$$

    By iPhone user in KC!!!!!
    The app just started a number limit on how many articles you can read without paying. But they also have ads that stop you from seeing news without watching the ad first. Hello.... pick one to make your money. Ads or subscription. But I’m not paying for a subscription when you have ads that pop up. This is common sense. My preference is to deal with the ads and not have to pay but there is no way on planet earth I would do pay you to watch your ads. Are you kidding me????

    I love the content. I can log in via a browser on the same device I want to login via the app. I have no issues logging in and they have no issue collecting my monthly subscription fee. But this app tells me I need to reset my password due to a new version then rejects my password change. So the app is useless.
  • The app has bugs.

    If you leave the app in the background to look up something in an article, say an address on Google Maps, for example, and return to the app, you don’t return to the article you were reading. It resets and you wind up at the Top Stories header with the #1 story in the background. It’s very, very annoying and I’m uninstalling the app.
