    Nice to have access to a variety of media to stay connected to my hometown.
  • Worthless

  • Bad Update

    By Ahaake
    Was a great way to read Tribune. Now almost worthless. Ready, Set...Delete.
  • New version is awful.

    By SouthMPLSis#1
    It used to be good, but this new update is impossible to find anything in. Was one of my favorite apps. Not anymore.
  • App update is horrible - Do Not Update!

    By Jrmmn
    This app is now a royal pain and has lost most of the functionality it had. I will revert to the old version or dete the app. Why pay the Strib for old and outdated content. This is now junk. Thanks for wreaking an app I liked to use previously. Please fix this.
  • Ruined w/latest update!

    By glttrktty
    Wow. I have never seen an app so thoroughly RUINED with an update as I have with this app today. You used to be taken to a page where you could choose between the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press. Then you could easily look at headlines within each section of each paper. Now there is no way to do that! Everything is lumped together in one hideous, chaotic mess and you can't even tell what paper you're reading (the Star Tribune articles are identified as coming from their RSS feed but Pioneer Press articles aren't identified at all until you click through). Worse yet, multiple links had expired when I clicked on them. Even more annoying, all the Pioneer Press articles take you to the full, non-mobile formatted website, not the nicely formatted version you used to see in this app. It's almost like they sat down and *tried* to figure out how to make sure every single last aspect of this app and its UI was completely wrecked! This went from being an app I used to read daily to being one I will not keep on my phone in its current version. I can't even fathom what they were thinking by trying to jumble everything together. I'd give it negative stars if I could, and I very rarely write negative reviews and have downloaded and tried out over 500 apps. This went from being one of the most useful to one of the worst ever in one quick update. Sigh.
  • Don't bother

    Looks like this was bought out by Strib and now they want a subscription. Not likely since there news is a week old. I'm in my 60's, have read the news for a long time and I want to tell you that paid news paper subscriptions on line will never fly
  • Good app but crashes

    By Monster2672
    I love how how various local news sources are all together, but it crashes almost every time I open it. Sometimes it crashes as soon as I open it and sometimes it's after I've read a couple articles. I'd rate this app 4 stars if it wasn't for the crashing.
  • Crash-0-Rama

    By RPduc
    I used to like this app. Some of the sites are poorly laid out for phone browsing but overall it was useful. However, recently it has become unusable due to incessant crashing. This app needs an upgrade, possibly related to updating the OS on my phone??
