  • Bad App managed to get worse

    By Advaughn59
    I’m saddened by this app because I think the journalists who work at the Star do a fine job. The previous version of the app was frustrating because if you were reading an article and it referenced a previous Star article, the link would open a browser and ask you to log in, rather than just taking you to the article in the app. Sooooo, when a new version appeared I had hoped it would fix that issue. It did not. The ability to see the actual physical version of the paper was a redeeming factor of the previous version, and now that’s gone. Love the journalism, hate the app.
  • Terrible

    By Armitage2010
    Your app and login process is terrible. Despite having a subscription through Apple, when I login, the app treats me like I do not have an account and keeps asking me to subscribe. It has caused me to my subscription lapse and find local news elsewhere.
  • Not happy with the new version

    By Steffiritt
    I’m not too happy with the new version of the Kansas City Star. I found the old way was much easier for me to find what I was looking for in the online paper. I also don’t want to download the paper on my phone. I just want to look at it. Sometimes new is not always better. Should have left it alone.
  • Disappointing Upgrade

    By SFCalCat
    This week the Star’s (e)edition eliminated the option to browse the print newspaper edition look. My renewal option coming due next week couldn’t have come at a better time. Not for me.
  • New Version of the Star

    By Waynesl
    The version of the Star released several days ago makes it very difficult to navigate through the Star news. It’s no longer a newspaper where you can glance at a page and decide what you want to read. I spent the last hour trying to figure out how to navigate through the Star. I much prefer the “old version” of the Star. Unfortunately, I’m having to pay for this. Makes me want to reconsider my current subscription.
  • Yet another poor roll out

    By Franco9876
    I love the paper, but whenever an “upgrade” come along it’s a mess. The app doesn’t load properly. It closes randomly. You have to close the all to get the new paper loaded. The previous upgrade was a mess as well. Very frustrating. This is an add on for the 2024 update. Now you can’t even get a proper e-edition of the paper. Just a bunch of headline to click on and many of the headlines only display partially. Hate it.
  • Room for Improvement

    By IvanGroznykc
    The new app is clunky and difficult to navigate. The cost of the digital edition of the Star is overpriced. Not good value for money. Too little local news reporting. The paywall does not permit subscribers to share any articles. The Washington Post gives you 10 free articles per month to share. It costs less than the Star too.
  • Revised Star app is a disappointment

    By LongstandingReader
    New presentation format doesn’t include print facsimile, which has been my preferred first view of daily news. Headlines in news section are sketchy, really not enough to guide a reader’s intentional progress through the site. Persistent ad at bottom gets in the way of content. Unlike earlier versions, it can’t be dismissed. Very annoying. Experience might be improved by incorporating some of the content included in daily email summaries? Not clear what is contained in “Money” section - is this Business or personal economics?
  • Impossible to cancel subscription

    By Awal1980
    I paid for my subscription but it still doesn’t let me access content. Finally managed to get thru to their foreign, satellite customer service agency after jumping thru hoops and finding my account number. Between the data harvesting on the app and it apparently being impossible to cancel, I can’t recommend anything from The Star. They’re also a very anti union company, so if you are or have a family member that is a Union member, do yourself a favor and find a different news source.
  • Glitchy App

    By Logan 1971
    I have had repeated issues with the app’s performance. When I attempt to open articles in the news feed, the article opens and then closes automatically a few seconds later. I worked with someone from customer service… they had me delete the app and then download it again. It had not corrected the problem. I have also noticed that many of the Chiefs sports articles do not have the referenced videos attached to the correct article. This needs attention!
