Since updating to the new app, my device freezes up every time I open the app to read the paper. We never had this problem with the old app or with other apps we access on our device. Plus if we don’t open the app for 2-3 days, we are required to reenter our user name and password. As we receive the physical paper on the weekends, this is a weekly issue. We have a subscription so I am unsure why the app would require reentry so often.

Cannot AirPrint articles from iPad after update

I’ve complained for a month to N&O that the latest update on iPad is NOT compatible with their latest app update - am not able to use AirPrint to print puzzles or articles! They’ve told me they’re working on the problem. I hope other customers who have noticed this problem will complain to N&O to PLEASE UPDATE your APP!!

Almost useless

Example: I cannot find today’s print front page story anywhere online. Really? No search function.

The News & Observer does local and state news really well, but this app needs some work. The new and much-highlighted subscription login system does not work—I enter my digital subscription info, and it can’t find it. I try to get a new password, and I am told I don’t have an account. I tap for customer support, nothing happens. When introducing a new feature like this, please make sure it actually works before releasing it the day before a holiday. At least I haven’t had any issues actually reading articles, even though I can’t log in...

Worthless

The entire paper is headed for the end. The print version is down to just maybe 3 pages of actual news the rest furniture ads and other junk.

Considering canceling my N&O subscription!

CmInNC's Review of The Raleigh News Observer

Reviewed on 7/14/18 12:51 PM

I want to read the “paper” version of the news. This app is not very user friendly at all. I have been requested to login to my account yet again this morning. I don’t want to have the physical paper delivered only to go into the recycling bin so I am really considering just canceling my subscription altogether. I would give the app 0 stars if it was possible.

How to get to classified adds?

The obituaries are not listed according to city and town, at least I could not locate, and I have had residences all over NC. Plus I could not find the comic section.

“Breaking News” ?!?

ryvincen's Review of The Raleigh News Observer

“Breaking News” has a freakishly huge definition nowadays, and this app and its push notification has managed to expand it even more. I understand there’s a toggle option to turn off push notifications entirely, but I still want to be aware of local “Breaking News” (the narrower version). Maybe a great solution would an option to select specific notification topics within the app (Ex: the option to turn off the three notifications that UNC men’s basketball beat Pitt... huzzah?!).
