App Reviews

  • Nice app but flawed

    By LarryPDX1
    It works pretty well. I usually use the two-panel mode with the paper layout view in the left panel and an expanded view of the selected section in the panel on the right. My complaint is that bold sub-heads in the paper selection are not bold in the right panel. If you are looking at a community events listing, it is difficult to sort out the break in events. If this were fixed I'd give it a **** rating.
  • Love the app!

    I can efficiently scan and read news of the day, plus older stories and opinion pieces. Swiping lets you move quickly from story to story.
