  • Pretty good app Dec 16, 2016

    By WJWebb
    This is a nicely laid out app and does an excellent job for what it's designed to do. The only drawback for me was paying for this app (quite some time ago) and it still displays advertisements! I've never seen another app that does that. Usually, when you pay those are removed. I've gotten used to them, as they don't get in the way to much but the removal in the paid version would have gotten the app 5 stars.

    They've updated the app within the past fee months. It's a little better but has a lot of ads
  • Only newspaper in town Feb 21, 2021

    SJ-R better than not having a paper.

    haven't fixed the bug yet. I still have to uninstall and install every couple of days. really annoying.

    Sad that our hometown newspaper has devolved to almost irrelevancy. Reporting is good to excellent but circulation and customer service is poor to non-existent. Hence, my rating of "3"
  • Easy Access Sep 27, 2016

    Front page news and follow on stories very easy to access and read. I use all the time.
  • Accessible for voice over users Aug 13, 2016

    By Bill in Springfield
    Navigation among the articles using voice over screen reader works, which it did not with previous versions. However, I agree with other comments regarding article organization
  • Nice navigation on the new app Jan 24, 2018

    By Nikhilbh
    Really like the new navigation. Especially being able to see the top stories sooner and real time.

    After looking at like 4 articles, I can't read anymore. And yes, I am subscribed. When I call, they tell me to uninstall and reinstall. I have to do this EVERY TIME! Its insane. I PAY for full access!
  • Clunky and Dissapointing May 20, 2021

    By From the Bootheel
    The app is not intuitive and really is downright primitive. On the positive side, it is appropriate for the content of what was a great newspaper but now needs to close.

    The worst app you could possibly download. Have to reinstall every 5 articles, even though I'm a subscriber already. Help desk there helpless.

    By RANDy Corporation
    I wonder if the SJ-R advises those who pay to advertise on their very basic app that they block people who actually use the app and therefore fewer people see the ads they are being paid to run? Content is very lacking, especially local content. It is easier going to the web site than using the app which defeats the very purpose of the app.

  • Worthless Dec 23, 2017

    By Mark Jones Crissey
    Poor app. Stories are not updated. 2-3 days can pass before changes appear. Some stories are nothing more than a white page. Opening this app has locked my phone (I phone 10) numerous times. Use at your own risk.
  • Terrible Aug 22, 2017

    By 123458885422
    Stories are not updated the same ones there day after day. Not organized well, i.e. Local,national, opinion etc.. Biggest complaint; can't download the day's news and read offline. The old app, just a copy of the print version, was much better!

    By Right 1957
    You can read most of the contents of the printed newspaper with this app. It's easy to use, and there are not a lot of pop up advertisements.

    Love the app. Wish it would stop dropping out.

    They've managed to Destroy a Great Newspaper, but At Least the theApp is Well Designed.

    This is a question for the sj-r. I haven't seen able to access my account for the last two weeks. Why am I having this problem? I remain as a guest no matter what I do. I can't leave a comment or like/dislike any comments.

    Unfortunately I have to delete and reinstall this app every other day. Aggravating

    There is no way for subscribers to login and view the e-edition or subscriber content. Booo!
  • So-so Feb 20, 2017

    By BobC44
    Not bad for a smaller newspaper. As an out-of-towner gives me enough information on the important news!
  • Jul 22, 2017

    By Jim Hanely
    Changing from an iPad to Android tablet, I am used to reading an electronic copy of the newspaper. This android app only offers select articles, not the newspaper. Not worth paying for newspaper subscription if you can't read it. UPDATE: an Android app finally releases with electronic copy of the newspaper. Be advised, a different app however.

  • Poor news source Jun 2, 2017

    By Cent. Ill. boy
    The app is okay if you want to check the news every couple of days. Needs to be kept up to date throughout the day. Look at St. Louis Post Dispatch and see how a news app is continually updated.

    It keeps crashing! And that’s on this brand new iPhone SE 2020! What the heck? Can we get a more reliable app without all the stops and crashes PLEASE?!?

  • Horrible app Dec 29, 2015

    By Doe hunter
    Did not think the sjr could get worse. I was wrong. It can and it did with this app. The app does nothing more than further water down, dilute and generally restrict the real news.
