Store Performance Index shows overall performance of your app on app stores. It is based on combined ASO & reviews metrics.

When I’m traveling or if my paper carrier doesn’t deliver a paper, the app gives me a sense of the local news that is superior to the local tv station sites. I also enjoy some of the video clips. I would enjoy it more if the search function was more user friendly. An example, I was searching for high school sports scores and I struggled to find them until I realized that the category had changed to sectionals. It is still high school, right? So there is room for improvement there but glad we still have a local paper that publishes daily.
The Democrat and Chronicle is the best source of local news in the Rochester area. I enjoy reading stories by Leo Roth, Sal Maiorana, and David Andreatta. However there are a few things that can be improved. For some reason stories about the Buffalo Bills more than a year old are still appearing at the top of the Bills news feed. This forces me to scroll to the bottom to see the most recent news. I submitted a request to fix this and I never heard back. The D and C is is using more video. Unfortunately this forces the reader to watch a 15 second ad every time you click on a short video. Some of the “videos” contain only text, almost like watching a Power Point slide show. I can tolerate the 15 second ad before a real video (I know ads support the business). But don’t make me watch an ad just to see me a slide show containing only text.
The app itself is generally fine altho the only notification I have set is “Breaking News” no other notifications are enabled like “Sports” but I’m always getting alerts on how the Bills are doing, player updates or other sports info. Yesterday during the afternoon I received 4 notifications on the Buffalo Bills. This is not “Breaking News” please only push these notifications to subscribers who have the “Sports” notification enabled as it’s truly annoying to be alerted to something that is absolutely not applicable to the notification that has been enabled. Not everyone in Rochester is either a Bills fan or a sports fan in general & it’s a waste of time to be notified for nothing.
This newspaper is a Rochester institution. The coverage of local politics, sports, art, food, events, entertainment, etc are outstanding and an invaluable resource to our community. The app is easy to use and the banners are an unobtrusive way to stay informed of major stories throughout the day. Please sign up and support this organization so they don’t have to sell themselves to some national conglomerate that will dilute and - potentially direct - the thoughtful, intelligent, local content.
The news content is terrible. Half of the articles are permanent fixtures, and remain on your front page for months. Yes, months. For filler, the D&C leaves articles on their app for a long time. Some that are up today were first posted 2.5 Months ago! As of the past month, the app will only allow us to read the headlines, and a few lines of the article "teaser". The content will not appear without paying a fee. Garbage app, do not even bother. If you want the D&C content, just google their headlines and read it on the web.
