    Not a great fan of e-news, but the Free Press e-news is excellent
  • Love the paper, hate the app

    By Grape Julius
    The app used to be fine. But the last two updates have been absolutely horrible—the loading time is so slow for stories and headlines to appear that I’m starting to look for other news sources. I’ve tried it on multiple internet connections, so I know that the problem isn’t on my end. Please fix this! I will revise my review if and when the loading times return to normal.

    Great app, excellent coverage of the news
  • Love the app, hate the update

    By Threegoalnight
    Thoroughly enjoy using the app and having access to great content. However since the last update I’ve been experiencing an issue. If I’m in the middle of an article and my phone lock screen comes on (e.g. if I don’t touch the screen for a certain amount of time), when I swipe back in the article automatically returns to the beginning/top of the page. Very annoying for longer articles having to go back through and find my place. Please fix!

  • Great mobile newspaper app!

    By Buddy cat & Smokey
    I normally will not read newspapers on line, but the Free Press app is really easy to read and find what section you want. This is the best newspaper app that I have and I definitely will keep reading it! My complaint I'm now having is that the advice column is terrible - sometimes there aren't any new questions for days - my Oakland Press has new ones daily in Dear Abby....sigh! Line Dancing Grandma The advice columns aren't any better....they disappear for days - what happens?. I just changed the number of review stars to one...why, because again and again columns are disappearing, especially the advice columns!! I will close the app if this doesn’t clear up. This has gone on for days - I have been a Free Press reader for years and really like this app since we go to Florida. This app is getting worse and worse! Is there a reason why certain sections are not updated daily! I will no longer recommend this app to my snowbird friends from the Detroit area - please do not ask me to rate this app again unless you’ve fixed this problem! Now I can’t even read the regular sections! There’s a title, but when I click on it, there’s a blank screen with black photo squares. This is a horrible app and I’m going! to need to cancel it! This is happening again - HELP!
