  • Adequate! Jan 16, 2021

    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!!!❤️

  • Aggressive non-stop ads Jan 29, 2020

    By Jodyharrison
    This app has way too many and too aggressive ads to be enjoyable. I have a subscription and I still get pelted relentlessly with pop-up videos that continue to launch despite me closing them each time. I have to close, exit, and relaunch the app just to have an opportunity to read the articles before getting interrupted by another site or video. I understand the need to sell ads to pay for content but enough already. There needs to be a way to do it tastefully and in a way that doesn’t completely disrupt the reading process. The e-edition is pretty nice but you can’t highlight and look up text. Please please please improve this app so that people can enjoy reading about South Louisiana without the rigamarole.

    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.

  • 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.

  • No Articles! May 30, 2019

    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.

  • Extra, extra read all about it! Mar 21, 2020

    By Gigi#1965
    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.

    No other app comes close to NOLA when it comes to Big Easy coverage! Also has national news and weather.

  • Appears problems in transition have been fixed Jul 16, 2019

    By raykibb
    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.

  • 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

  • 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?
