    I like to check in once a week in case I miss something on the radio broadcast on my two hours of commuting each day. It takes too long to load, and there’s too many ads though, and I don’t always have the time on my lunch hour. The search is helpful, as is the sort by county. I love the lunch time DJ’s and my ride home at 5:00 with D&D, but turn it off on my morning commute. It is too political, the DJ too angry and he does not give callers an opportunity to fully make their point or speak. He consistently talks over them, and I just change stations. Dennis and Judy, and D&D are a bit more courteous to listeners, and aren’t do blatantly one sided in politics.
  • can no longer save stories Jan 1, 2021

    By NJnaturelover
    I have been a print and digital subscriber for years and want to support local journalism. One issue, I used to be able to save a story using the star icon at the top of the article. Recent updates took this ability away. I have digital subscriptions to other newspapers and can save articles. It is annoying that I can no longer save articles. Please bring this feature back. Subscribers and nonsubscribers should be able to save articles. Your latest update seemed to have fixed the bug when I read an article and then go to a link within that story to read a second article, clicking done did not close the articles. Thanks for the fix. I find the site reasonably easy to navigate. I give a three-star rating because I can no longer save articles.
  • Old Columns and Are All Parts of the State Covered Equally? Jul 17, 2018

    By NJinVA
    Some links display the last date a column was run and that date is several months old. Either remove the links or start up the columns again. Also it seems more “second tier” stories about North Jersey are listed on the main page than others from Central and South Jersey; this is with News and Sports. Is there something that can be done to balance this out?
  • Tired of listicle alerts! Sep 5, 2018

    By gladmax
    App is OK, although I don’t like links to web articles rather than articles in the app. But i’m really sick of alerts to boring, not-newsworthy listicle articles. I just turned off alerts on my iPhone because I really don’t care about which is the best _______ in each NJ county. Please save the alerts for real breaking news!

    It's okay. Lots of little bugs and problems. For example, push notifications link you to subscriber exclusive articles that you can't access even if you are a subscriber. Needs work.

  • Updated. Now it just crashes Update Dec 23, 2019

    By South Jersey Joe
    Just loaded latest edition. It was always slower than my other 2 news apps but now it just crashes when I open it. Loaded IOS 13.3. App works good now. Even sees to load stories faster. Fingers crossed hoping it keeps working.

    Born and raised in NJ, but living the last 40-50 years elsewhere, this is one of my favotite ways to keep up with what's going on there. Love it! But there there is the occasional problem though for articles that are lists, such as "here are the 30 lowest tax bills..." or whatever, but one can only read the first few (at least on my mobile ssmsung 8+). is there a fix?
  • Crashes Feb 28, 2019

    By BSzerszen
    Please update your app. Its consistently crashes. Also it takes forever to load current news that your writing staff is not very good with details on reporting the news much less any updates to a posted story.

    I paid for subscrition because alot of articles that were of interest could not be accessed. I then logged in. I have to log in everyday even though I've selected the remain logged in option several times. Also just tried to search for an article from this past summer, and nothing came up. I understand the need for subscriptions but i don't understand bad service. I won't make the same mistake twice.👎

    I'm never going to be a paid subscriber until your writers use spell check. Every single story you send me as a pop up on my phone that is an update on relevant NJ covid data is now only for paid subscribers. Every time I get that, I close the app. I'm about done with you.

    Extremely sub par app. Either pictures won't load in articles, or now the articles are blackened and the words are all jumbled making whole articles completely unreadable. There has always been some sort of glitch involved with this app over the years. There needs to be some sort of professionalism involved in maintaining this app, as it can be a very useful app for local NJ news. In general, poor quality control. Edit: Prior glitches cleared up, but the app will not open after latest update...

    update: for the past week, the app won't revert the stickers properly at all. as in completely unreadable. what's going on guys? MAJORITY of stories are "slide shows" which simply don't display properly inside the app. Is bet about 2/3 of articles I read in the app don't render fully. What is purpose if can't read the articles? no change since last update
  • Not working right Aug 17, 2018

    By beaner7985
    The obituary section of the app isn’t working. They aren’t loading and all you get is a blank white screen. I have an IPhone and my mom has an LG and it’s not working on her app either. I thought maybe the last update would fix the issue but it’s still not working. Please fix this. I even tried deleting the app and reinstalling it and that didn’t even work

    Since the update it's formatting off the screen you can't read replies it's acting just like the website. Now as far as the app goes the fonts are too small needs an option for larger fonts. The comment section when it slides over it should fully slide over the entire article the comment section two small difficult to read. Would like to see a cut back on some of the ads or at least have an option to stop the animation there very distracting.

    Articles load slow. Unable to view any form of non text media. App is data heavy and utilizes significant bandwidth. News is worthless, app is mostly OP-ed articles that you find irrelevant. Traffic and weather are as useful as a teatoller acting as a sommelier. The positive: at least the has a short name and you know you can't count on it. also, it may not crash.

    This app is ok but has same issues people have complained about for months and they have not been resolved. Click on one story, yet another story is the one that opens. Then once you get to story you actually want, the pics and story either don't open, or take forever to load.

  • Political bias Jul 13, 2019

    By ckanast
    The slant of any politically related articles always swings too far to the left, which may please a portion of your constituents, however is alienating other readers such as myself. Your legitimacy as a publication would increase dramatically it were more balanced. The absence of any substantive alternative viewpoint serves to identify this publication as politically biased therefore making it difficult to take seriously.
