  • My Hometown Paper Oct 14, 2019

    By LKHankins
    Thanks for making the online version and app available! I get to read my hometown paper even though I’m no longer at home! The app provides all the great coverage of the FWST, and even throws in some news from other McClatchy owned news sources. The app performs well, loading quickly and accurately. My only criticism is that sometimes an ad will extend across the whole screen, and it’s difficult to scroll by it. Other than that, it’s a great mechanism to receive and read the news.
  • Outstanding Rangers coverage. Mar 11, 2018

    By budzo43
    FWST writers share a fans perspective and ask and answer topics that are on the fans minds. Only improvement would be to be more objective in evaluating performance of Rangers Mgr and GM. Especially when comments about not trying to win it all this year comes from GM. Would he have arrogantly said that if vote for new stadium financed by tax payers hadn’t already been approved? CMon Man! You can and should do better reporting and holding people accountable as your readers deserve it.
  • Great improvements to the e-edition Oct 30, 2019

    By icirrus
    My compliments to the Star Telegram staff for striving to make the e-edition user friendly. You have removed the bottlenecks to smooth reading in the new version. I am particularly happy to see the news without the “pushy” in your face advertising. The pop ups were a nuisance while digesting news. After 50 years as a subscriber, thanks for again making the ST the finest source for all the news. Kurt Tauzel
  • The “New” Newspaper Jul 30, 2021

    By ronj91602
    If you are looking for the old news paper you are out of touch but this new way of reading the paper is really easy and accessible. Features like want ads are pretty much a thing of the past but here you get instant updates where in print you would have to wait for tomorrow’s edition. Really enjoy the Beta version.

    I liked the e-edition better because it was ladies out like the newspaper. It had a bug this morning and wouldn’t open. Tried to uninstall and install and couldn’t find it. Only able to find this in App Store. Hate it!

    I love the app but now since you cannot read it without subscribing, I just look at the headlines. I’m on a fixed budget, since I retired. I live in West Texas and love keeping up with everything in Ft. Worth. The coverage of the news in Fort Worth is exceptional. Keep up the good work.

    As a native Fort Worthian, I am more dependant than ever on major headlines and news. This app has kept me informed in a general sense. The wording is concise, the story sums up what' happened in a nutshell, and it is short of having the actual paper delivered electronically or via pistal service to my mailbox. I am happy with this Star T. App!
  • More of a web page than an app Mar 13, 2018

    By Houston toad
    It works, news delivered, however this is a weak app, of course the price is right. Also it is hard to find current news, because the popular stories stay up for days sometimes with little change.

    Glitchy on Samsung tablet. This new version is a mess. I set preferences but they didn't take effect. If read a story in the opening view and try to switch to the replica, it crashes. Can only read the replica view by zooming in and out. If I tap on a story, it crashes. Please fix this horrible app! I'm not paying to stay a customer if it's not fixed! UPDATE The FAQs don't address the problems with this buggy app. It suddenly worked for a few days, but stopped working at all yesterday. JUNK

  • Updated app is terrible Oct 20, 2019

    By Hubbub52
    After updating the app it is terrible compared with the old app. Now it takes you to an internet browser filled with useless info. Simply put when I use the app I want to read the paper not have to go to several option to get the paper. Not to mention the app works terrible inside the browser. I can no longer just click on the continued on page to go to the end of story. It doesn’t expand easily either. It want let me move around the page easily either. It is a major disappointment that will make me reconsider keeping the star telegram. I was a home delivery user until the printed paper price got to be so expensive that I went to the e-print form. It was simple then just click on the app, up popped the paper and it downloaded and I could also download it for offline use easily. Now it opens in a browser, once opened it goes to a bunch of useless info, then you have to click on another spot to get paper that doesn’t work to well. JUST TERRIBLE!!

    Update required today. New interface asks me to choose my topics. No issue there but after selecting my topics there is no button, menu, or anything else to save my choices and view the paper. I guess it's time to switch to another news source. I have a Samsung Note10+.
  • The app is totally inefficient Dec 25, 2018

    By Day in Texas
    I can’t believe how challenging it is to develop a basic app that works consistently. Obviously the Star-Telegram has not invested in its own product. Whoever designed this app had absolutely no clue what they were doing. That of course is my opinion. I’m tired of logging in and being logged out; I’m tired of being told I don’t have an account when I do; I’m tired of not being able to follow up on any article. I’m also really tired of trying to find anything that is timely. This app brings up articles that are two and three days old. Perhaps I’m not actually looking at a news document but instead a historical archives document. I’m also frustrated that in order to use this app I must have an active Facebook account. This is not a good value for somebody who cares about balanced media.

    takes several minutes to open, often closes back to opening screen, SLOW RESPONSE on all screens. Over all, a giant step backwards from previous version.
  • Absolutely horrible Oct 2, 2019

    By Fdh161
    The “new” iPad app is nothing more than the convoluted mess that is the desktop e-edition. The previous app was essentially the print edition on screen. It opened to the front page of the paper then paged through sequentially (although you could jump sections if desired) - exactly as a reader would expect. It was an elegant presentation. Now we have a series of headlines (same headlines in multiple sections to make it appear as if there’s more to the paper than there really is). About the only thing that hasn’t changed is the ultra-biased, misleading and often downright false reporting. I didn’t think it was possible to create a local paper that would make The Dallas Morning News look good by comparison, but somehow McClatchy found a way to do it. I’d give it zero stars if I could.

  • Your website is not user-friendly Nov 22, 2020

    By Keith Wrobel
    I have been taking the Fort Worth Star-Telegram now for about three months. Before that I took the Dallas Morning News for about 30 years. I really do prefer the Fort Worth Star-Telegram over the Dallas news. However your website is extremely difficult to navigate and not user-friendly. If you could please do something to your website to make the paper easier to read and navigate it would really be a blessing. Also is there no way to go back and look at yesterday‘s paper if I want to see it on the website ? I suggest you look at your competition and see their website, you’ll understand then what I’m talking about. Thank you Keith Wrobel

  • Disappointed Dec 19, 2018

    By buckeye b
    I have been a long time proud subscriber to the Star Telegram, having grown up in Ft. Worth and living in Tarrant County my whole life. But I am very disappointed at the lack of real journalism the paper used to have. For example, during the Nixon years, the Watergate hearings, and the legal process that was taking place in Washington was usually front page news. The current legal issues involving President Trump and the Mueller investigation are either buried deeply in the paper (or app) and are often not even covered at all. Our country is facing some possible serious constitutional issues that may result in the impeachment of a president. Should that not be front page news? I hope the paper is not bending to partisan pressure to become like “Fox News” by only presenting the news that suits a certain political viewpoint. I believe the Star Telegram can do better. I believe newspapers can serve as one of the guardians of our great democracy. But it can only do that if it tells the truth consistently. Sincerely, Dan Manning
  • New version very bug filled Oct 11, 2019

    By WBgolf
    The so called improved version E-edition is terrible. Frequent crashes, blurred text, ad at bottom blocks the page, pages are slow loading due to ad at bottom, frequent errors saying page won’t load, when exiting the e edition it no longer return to where you left off like the older version. You messed it up bad this time, Star Telegram. Please fix the bugs. Reading the E edition is a laborious and frustrating activity now.
  • Not liking this change Oct 12, 2019

    By Kat88@&$
    Used to love reading star telegram on my iPad but since switch recently has been very frustrating. Very jumpy.... sometimes can only see part of article then jumps off. If not fixed soon may have to try a different paper. I switched to online version years ago and have been happy until last few weeks. Ugh

  • Not a Well Developed App Sep 8, 2018

    By RBT1975AFA
    I HATE that the new version of the app takes readers to a web site in a browser to see the facsimile of the actual newspaper. That wastes a third of the screen with browser functionality. The older versions of the app were much more seamless. Perhaps this way they can waste more of the reader’s time closing pop up ads that further clog the screen??
  • Constant Breaking opinion notifications Jan 10, 2018

    By Raphi.R
    I’m deleting this app. I’m tired of the constant breaking opinion notifications. Half the time, it’s not even a story of importance. The Star Telegram is more like the Star Tattletale trying to make stories about well-known people sound shocking and appalling. Super bowl results? Breaking news. Their opinion of a player’s performance in a regular season game? Not breaking news.
