  • Surprise access change AND it’s TERRIBLE

    By MG27511
    The previous edition read like a newspaper in my hands. Go directly to any section by pulling menu list down. Just like a newspaper. I saw no warning of the ‘improvements’ and unable to use paper as I expected. Finally called and emailed the executive editor, Mr Church, but never responded. My wife stumbled upon the revised access. Went to the app, which is not usable - who wants to select types of stories, etc? Just want to access the paper as I would in hand. What do I do now? Select the eedition and flip through all the pages until I get to the section desired. And why can’t the menu option be brought back as an option?
  • Confirming the app is terrible

    By Ben d2
    Links from push notifications break, trouble logging in, hard to find stories, random glitches.
  • Opens to Yesterday’s Paper

    By Song$ter
    Since the updated app was released I need to log in every day. When I log in from the page presented (ads to buy subscription + tiny tiny sign-in hyperlink) it opens to yesterday’s paper. There is no link to the archive from that webpage. It means I have to go back out and make sure I log in from my bookmarked link to get to the main log in page. I use an iPad. One of 2 fixes is required. 1) have the sign-in page shown on the subscription buying page go to the main log in page 2) add an archive link to the main page for each edition I make a pdf version each day to read the paper because the screen is very sensitive and I hate having articles suddenly open to a full article. I find it annoying & disruptive.
  • Hot garbage!

    By musicinmybrain
    Articles close when I try to scroll, so I can’t read them. Articles in the e-edition, “home,” and on the website aren’t all the same. And that’s before talking about the mediocre quality of the actual articles and reporting.
  • Virtually impossible to read an article now

    By LibrarySue
    Articles won’t stay open for more than a few seconds. I am a subscriber so it’s incredibly frustrating to have to open an article 10 times to read the whole thing.
  • How is this app still so bad?

    By Davidrogers27
    I’ve been a N&O subscriber for years, because I want to support local news. But this app is so bad it’s making me reconsider my subscription (which is more expensive that the WaPo, FWIW). The app crashes multiple times when reading every story, and sends you back to the home page once again. The stories highlighted are often totally outdated. In the Durham section there are stories that are like 2 years old! I know times are tough for local papers, but please hire some developers to build a functional app or more and more people are gonna reject this paper. PS. I deleted and redownloaded the app multiple times as suggested. It makes no difference. The problem is the app, not some outdated version.
  • Doesn’t work on iPad

    By Games.rate
    I can read the News and Observer newspaper on my iPhone but can’t open it on my iPad. Both devices are new and up to date. Any solutions? Kind of a bummer because I don’t get the physical paper. PRobably going to cancel if I can’t resolve soon, even though I believe in supporting the local news.
  • App is rough, stories are great

    By nat24737
    **Edit to add: I got a developer response suggesting it was a Facebook problem that I can’t share stories. This is not applicable, I’m trying to share directly from the app and nothing happens. I don’t have a Facebook account and that is definitely not the problem. I’m happy to continue subscribing to the N&O, I really value local journalism and feel like I’ve gotten a lot out of the subscription. However, the app experience is rough. I have an iPhone and the stories will frequently close and return to the homepage when I’m halfway through reading them. The bigger problem for the N&O itself is that the sharing function doesn’t work! I click on the sharing button to share the story when I want to hear others’ comments, but nothing happens when I click it. This seems like something you should definitely fix, I’m trying to give these stories more clicks! Lots of bugs to fix, would really appreciate if they were worked out.
  • Turned the page back.

    By SC1865
    I made transition to e-version in 2018. This current app turns the page back . Agree with other reviews that the e version replica much harder to read. I read the e-edition and abandoned trying to read the web version. Android seems to run better than my iPad. Both take 15 seconds to load some days. On content , the Top Stories often stale with 2 or 3 day old articles. My major peeve is the weather is up to two weeks old. Yes, 2 week old weather! Less would be more when it comes to Top Stories. Also, stay away from back button in your browser while reading articles in replica. That closes the web page for entire replica. I learned to only use the X in upper right corner on the article page view you are reading.
  • New version of app is terrible!

    By kt1654to3008
    I want to see the whole paper, not 6/135 pages!
