  • Great way to keep in touch as a former resident Aug 31, 2019

    By Spunkybear1
    As a former Central Florida resident with friends and family still in the area, it’s a great way to keep in touch as to the comings and going‘s and notes of interest in the area. More than once I’ve been told I know more about what’s going on in the area than those that live down there do. The only thing that I miss is the way it used to be organized because to me it is now a little bit harder to find sections of interest that I used to enjoy reading. Other than that I enjoy the app.

    OS: Courageous, informative. Calling a spade a spade. Now more than ever, we've got to have sources that report accurately. We're trying to support print media and are encouraging family and friends to do same.

    The news provided by this app is decent local and national reporting, but the app has a few problems. 1. My phone keeps reporting this app as consuming too much battery. I have to force it closed after every use. 2. The formatting is inconsistent. Headlines and section headers have different typefaces and sizes. It looks more like a collage project than a professional app. Besides that, the app works well enough and the content is good.

  • Too many ads Dec 17, 2019

    By Navel Gazer
    Downloading the digital version of the Sentinel is much better than the unresponsive design of the online product that interrupts the reading experience with too many ads.
  • Bugs persist Oct 31, 2019

    By Jimsafan
    I get an email with links to stories and tap on the one I want to see. It opens safari and then tells me I have reached my monthly limit (I am a subscriber- I should not have a limit). At the top of the safari screen it provides a link to open the app. Tap the link and the app opens at its home page, not at the article I wanted. Been doing this for many months, one would think that it’s an obvious bug. If a subscriber (or not) gets an email with links, and their phone has the app, it should open the app, not safari. Please fix this annoying bug. Otherwise the app seems to work well.

    There are all kinds of problems with this app. It use to be that on the day of the month the app paid my subscription I had a black out of the app for 24 hours, every month throughout that day. Now, this past week, I have a total black out on every platform. I am paid up and no access to the service anywhere. I talked to Orlando Sentinel digital subscription and they blamed Google, I talked to Google Play and they blamed Orlando Sentinel App. I have other newspaper subscriptions, yet this is the only one that gives me problems. I had to cancel my subscriptions. Orlando Sentinel cannot deliver this digital service at all. Be warned.

  • Terrible online content , app never works right Feb 28, 2021

    By CerveasDiablo
    Extremely poor app, finding the days news is extremely difficult beyond a few top stories. The only way to really read everything is to use the e edition, which frequently crashes and doesn’t let you view all the pages. Happens almost daily. The e edition is stuffed with so many ads, not only do you get all the ads in the print version you get lots of extra ads, this is very disappointing as a paying subscriber. I also subscribe to the Daytona Beach news journal and their app is a thousand times better. You would think a company such as the Orlando sentinel could have an app that functions correctly , maybe they need to check out what the news journal is doing.

    This apps is useless. I keep getting "you've reach your monthly article limit". This is after I've been paying for it for over 5 months. I'm unsubscribing. Orlando Sentinel can't even close/unsubscribe my account. I have to call google because I downloaded it thru google play. Orl. Sent. used to be a good newspaper...what happened. They play another in town, go to a convenient store on Saturday and can find Sundays paper ready to go for $4.50. Sundays paper on Saturday, come on now that is BS

    The application is buggy, sluggish and, as of the most recent update, unable to recognize if you have a subscription or not. If you try and reset your password, it won't even recognize your email address. The application has gone from bad to fundamentally useless and you're better off using the mobile website.

  • Reached my limit with OS Aug 29, 2019

    By MMM828
    Very frustrating. I have a digital subscription, which charges me without fail, but it never stays logged in. I receive alerts that I can’t actually read in the app. They open in Safari. I’m repeatedly blocked, saying that I’ve reached my monthly limit of free articles, prompting me to sign in. I sign in, but I still can’t view the articles. I can use the app fine, if I’m just browsing, but opening a targeted article never works. I have to search for it, defeating the point of the alerts.

    I would like to be able to share articles. Why are we having trouble reading articles beyond the header?
  • Very nice interface and organized articles Nov 24, 2020

    Born and raised in Orlando, I love journalism and my city. I'm glad to have a smooth operating local news platform.
  • Captions for the hearing challenged folks Jun 20, 2020

    By Fit in 2015
    We need captions to fully understand what is being spoken on the videos.

  • Finding an article Jul 5, 2020

    By KSOhara2
    It is difficult to find an article published in the Sentinel even with the exact headline...which is very frustrating! I have tried to find articles by specific columnists with the headline of the column...without success. It is really annoying!

    Adds pop up constantly. Articles promise to show graphic content that is inaccessible by this simple electrical engineer. I give up.
  • Buggy, hard to navigate Sep 25, 2019

    By Obobfla
    This limits the number of stories you get. Navigation is terrible. Pictures are displayed too large. Often, you see the same articles and pictures for days on end instead of fresh news

    Instant alerts won't open. Some photo uploads take up their entire feed so you don't see any new news stories.

    Slow app strewn with ads that diminish the reading experience. Major issues with account that led me to just cancelling altogether.

    Orlando Sentinel buildings on Orange Ave being torn down. Management (?), please dump this loser newspaper with them! I dumped the sinking ship 🛳 months ago. Online version was a non-functioning time wasting nightmare for me. Low 3.0 app rating speaks for itself. (Some Orlando Sentinel employees taking new jobs or payouts. Smart. Good thinking!)
