    If I'm paying you for a digital subscription you shouldn't force advertising in my face. Not worth the price either.

    Too many free news apps out there to pay for one that is average at best.

    No use since it requires a subscription. Used to keep up big country I no longer live in area. Very disappointing.

    First you take away our tv guide, now you charge extra and still no tv guide, cant even access it here. I dont have cable or dish...am I just supposed to guess at what's on tv?
    I dont like this format. I want to read the paper as it is on paper.
