App Reviews

  • App slow to load

    By Prairiegirl01
    I like the look of the new app, but often when I try to read it it says I’m offline when I’m not. It loads very slowly. It is so slow that I give up. And I wish that it had a section like the NYT that shows me the popular articles of the day. Please fix!
  • Video ads

    By LMNMN
    I use the app at the same time I stream radio news every morning and I HATE when the stupid video ads on Trib app override my radio app. It’s incredibly annoying to have the radio go silent when I swipe to a newspaper story. In my opinion there's no reason to use video ads and I wish they’d just GO AWAY.
  • Too much sports and repeated articles

    By Argee739
    I think my title kind of covers it.
  • Essential functions missing

    By AhnaGB
    The app is disappointing, especially for a newspaper. Text is not selectable so you’re unable to touch, select, and look up a word, nor can you even select text to copy a word into a dictionary. Photos are not expandable so you can’t zoom in. When you turn your phone sideways to look at a landscape shape photo, the top and bottom of the picture are cut off, as is a portion of the caption. Makes reading the news on this app quite frustrating.
  • Doing better

    Animated video ads that auto play the audio... poor form, StarTribune. I’m disappointed. App still crashes randomly on iPhone X. Also with every version release, you’re saying “the app was built from the ground up” but clearly that’s not the case any more. Thanks!
  • Download app, get to welcome page, then nothing.

    By PuzzQueen01
    Tapping screen or attempting to go to next page has no effect. Waste of time on iPhone
  • Photo froze

    By bugged10
    I cannot remove the photo nor can I lose the app. I really am flustered by this situation.
  • Still buggy - MONTHS later

    By pjoe$$
    Below is my initial review from November. I’ve changed from 2 stars to 1 star. It is now mid-January and...nothing. App still freezes when a photo is even accidentally touched. Beyond frustrating and it was today...50 days after submitting my review that the Apple review dept checked in. FIX IT OR LOSE YOUR CUSTOMERS!!! I’ve got the paid version of this app, and it’s pretty frustrating experience using it. The worst thing is the problem with merely touching a photo: the photo pops up and you cannot close it. You have to delete the app and restart it, which is maddening! I see this problem has existed since at least June 2018, its now end of November and...nada, zip, nothing on a fix.
  • No one is paying attention to the comments

    By Mert6080
    This app has had a problem for a long time with the photos in the articles. If you inadvertently touch the photo while scrolling through an article, the photo opens and you cannot get back to the article or app without bailing out entirely and restarting the app. I have written to the developer directly and I see that others have also commented on this, and yet nothing has been done to correct the problem. It is annoying enough that I often don’t bother going back to the app after having to bail out. Fix this already!
  • Dreadful

    By what smell?
    The app is slow and has ads even though there is a monthly charge for it. Maybe if the print version went away more resources would be available to bring the app to 20th Century standards. 21st Century is unobtainable for the people behind the app.
