  • NEVER THOUGHT Jul 13, 2019

    By TCI Truck
    I have been a paper “purist” whole life. From being the paper boy delivering the States Item then the Times Picayune, I’ve been reading the morning paper. Even when the Advocate started 7 days, I had both papers delivered. We went on vacation and I started reading the paper on line and never thought that I would enjoy “turning” the pages on my IPad, but it’s been a great experience. Thanks to the Advocate for bringing the Times Picayune for BACK!

    My only complaint is that I used be able to go to the food section and search for recipes. I miss that. 😒
  • Adequate! Jan 16, 2021

    By adequatelysatisfied
    The NOLA app is definitely adequate! It’s nothing fancy, but it will do. I don’t like the large banner at the top of an article I select on my tablet because it looks like it takes 25% - 30% of the page. At least it works most of the time. The screen refreshes every time I go to another screen and come back. I understand it there are new articles or if I haven’t been in several minutes, but it could be 2 or 3 seconds. Definitely annoying. Sometimes the refresh gets hung up and I have to close it and reopen.

    I was born and raised in New Orleans, however, I moved away due to my spouse’s job. Therefore, it is very important to me that I keep up with my beautiful City, and all the beautiful kindhearted people who live there! The NOLA App has allowed me to do just that, as it is very informative, easy to follow, and just great overall. It brings New Orleans to me, and makes me feel so connected to my city/home! There is NO PLACE like New Orleans. Thank you!!!❤️

    I was getting the paper until my cancer came back. I stopped it because I go to therapy everyday. When I stopped the delivery I started reading it online when l had time. I then started getting phone calls to restart the paper. I did not know there was a charge for reading the paper online. Please stop the phone calls.

    Share button doesn't work. It brings up the mail options but doesn't include the link to the story. Not something I'd post about, but there's no feedback or help link in the app, which I find really irritating.

    The reader has choice on whether to read the news in the traditional newspaper style or in the list style. This app has a good balance of international, national and local news. Reporting states facts rather than intermix opinion. There’s always something of interest for everyone.
  • Review of Nola May 26, 2019

    By nola turnaround please
    The old Nola was a lot better . Stories got on faster and was updated frequently. Now I get maybe one story every 3 hours and I have stories that stay on for weeks at a time on my mobile device. Also, high school sports coverage is absolutely the worst in the south. On the mobile device, the lead stories on high school baseball were from games that happened in beginning of season and was never updated by your staff

  • Good local NOLA articles a bit too Pro-Trump Oct 20, 2020

    By Howling Badger
    Generally good reporting in a timely fashion. Some of the reporters should dig a bit deeper on local corruption issues like the Hard Rock debacle that’s still not resolved with no city or inspectors charged. It’s been a year now. That’s low hanging fruit. Also, Trump’s $35B+ bailout skipped in an article about soya farmers voting Red in rural Lousianna.

    terrible app coders. for over a year, i could read the articles but not see the pictures affiliated with them. now i can see the pictures but can't read the articles because the words are superimposed over each other. definitely need one of the other new Orleans media outlets to supplant these guys.

    Like previous reviewers I am having problems viewing photos for articles. When you click on picture you get a non related photo. I've cleared the cache and the data. All to no avail. By now this issue should be fixed.

    As I successfully log into nola, I'm unable to place an add due to having to do another log in of which is unsuccessful. My account and pass word is listed in my account on the web site. What's up. Other than that it's a great app.

    Usually this is a useful and legible app, but lately all the articles are black and unreadable. Update please, it been this way for too long now.
  • Waste of my time Feb 9, 2019

    By Gr8Ivan
    There’s always a problem when submitting a comment to express my opinion on a story I’ve just read. This time my comment was surrounded by a red line or rather circled in red with the words “retry sending.” I spent 20 minutes writing a thoughtful and legally sound solution to a situation involving a newborn who will not have the same last name as her brother despite having the same parents, one of which is an Hispanic father with a hyphenated name. I suggest getting your news from more reliable apps than this one which has wasted my time for the last time.

    The search function does not work. No matter what I type in it just shows a blank screen. I have an android with the latest updates, this is garbage. Uninstalling and going to try WWL - I need a dependable local news app
  • No Articles! May 30, 2019

    By Lcon1
    Be prepared for that phrase. Also, be prepared for old stories, dead links, poor editing, grammar errors, and other forms of poor writing. Video clips aren't substitutes for journalism. Too many stories are repeated in multiple categories, while other news items aren't available. The national news is superficial at best. Sports coverage is thin and often limited to Louisiana teams and sports. For example, there's very little if any coverage of hockey, Major League Baseball, etc.

  • Ads blocking text. Still no night mode? Dec 18, 2020

    By Drewajv
    Ads are covering the text of articles, making them unreadable. Fix it. Where is the option for night mode? Most news and reader apps have this option. No option to sort stories by latest first, either. Not nearly as good as previous version. Advocate is making everything worse. They just don’t seem to care to make a good product. Also, NOLA is NOT Baton Route. Stop forcing BR stories and info into supposed NOLA version of app and paper.

    Easy to use. I especially like the e-versions ability to provide the entire article even when it is on 2 different pages. The update feature showing the new articles is keeps me updated is convient.

    I LOVE this app! I check it out daily. My family lives in Louisiana, and NOLA keeps me tuned to what’s going on in the State. Your articles are loaded with the best content and always easy to read. Thanks for being so thorough!!! Keep up the amazing work, because you truly do it best!

    We need the paper reading on phone is okey but sometimes it is good to look through the paper and to feel the paper it is good to have them past and the features at your hand so that is what I love about NOLA.

    I was a little concerned that no new news articles were appearing on the website since Georges bought out NOLA and the Times Pic. Seems to have been remedied, but the entire site has more of an antiseptic look, no imagination.

  • Awful Nov 23, 2019

    By PartyLady09
    There’s so much room for improvement. -The layout is awful. It’s so busy and difficult to read. I have tried to get used to it, but it’s just not happening. -There’s more news than high school football. On some Saturday mornings, I can’t find out what’s going on in the world, but I can find a detailed story about every high school football game in the state. Please get your priorities straight! -For the past day or so, every time I refresh the articles (aka sports reports), it says that 12 new stories are available. Alas, they never show up. It’s unfortunate that The Advocate (which bears no resemblance to the Times-Picayune) has a monopoly. Further, you don’t get full functionality without paying for a subscription, which is not mentioned anywhere. Does the AppStore know about this sneaky trick?
