  • Disappointing App! Poor Support!

    By ICTBS
    Newspaper content on my wife’s iPad is blurry if she chooses “Read Now” and if she downloads the content she cannot expand it with typical iPad finger gestures. When you app loads, all newspaper content is limited to a two inch wide window that cannot be expanded. I have been to the local Eagle office in Wichita, KS and was informed that someone from California would call me to resolve the issue. No call, no technical support phone number, so we are about ready to cancel and request a refund. Sad thing is, this app was working great in the past, but some dipstick keeps trying to “improve” it.
  • Needs improvement

    By Critter4me
    Hard to follow. I’ll stick with the paper newspaper.
  • The app is terrible on my iPad mini

    By Grani Mac
    Slow to load. Disappears unexpectedly. Reloads spontaneously. Hard to manipulate size. Considering stop reading paper.
  • Poor Content Curation

    By Dan in Wichita
    The content management system this organization uses to present news and editorial information is poorly organized. The same information automatically appears in several locations, which is inefficient for the reader. Insufficient resources are being dedicated to support this app, even though the corporate owners claim to be migrating to a “digital-first” journalistic and advertising product.
  • View like real paper

    By Jbhiker
    What happened to the option to view like a real newspaper? I can not locate funnies or jumble and many times it is difficult to log in.
  • Old news and keyholes

    By _LMThompson
    It’s difficult to keep up on current events because app is so full of old news stories. Even the “latest news” section is mostly old news. Additionally, the same stories appear under multiple headings so you keep seeing the same stories day after day, section after section. The eedition of the printed paper is better but they switched to a browser-based system where half the screen is wasted on ads and navigation bars. On mobile devices it’s like reading through a keyhole.
  • Poor way to access e-edition

    By poor 2
    Also cumbersome to use edition while using multiple iPad screens
  • Very difficult to read the print version

    By dkc71340
    I prefer to read the print version. This app is a significant downgrade from the previous version. Selecting the option to view the print version takes you out of the App and into your browser and is terrible to use. Give me a version that allows viewing the print version within the App and functions like the old App. I will likely not renew my subscription if this is not fixed!
  • Crappy App to start with, then they made it worse

    By dontneed toknowname
    Every since they “fixed” some minor bugs 4 days ago (10-17-19), it is impossible to access the digital replica of the print version if using updated Apple iOS with Safari browser. Doesn’t work when using Google Chrome either. In addition, all this app does is open a a link to a web page. If you don’t close the browser window after reading the online duplicate of the print version, you end up with multiple browser windows open. The older version was clunky, but at least one could read the paper.
  • It gets worse and worse

    By Marshaweaver
    I try to read their stories on Fb and get told I cannot without a subscription. Ok. Fine I open the app and try to read it there and get the same thing. It’s frustrating to say the least. So I see no reason to keep the app or bother with them. I can get the same information from any of the local news stations
