Store Performance Index shows overall performance of your app on app stores. It is based on combined ASO & reviews metrics.
User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
This is a very good news paper app. I have seen lots of bad newspaper apps and this one is one of the good ones. Even if it has a few glitches in it and the apps glitches are very small, and they don’t effect me much. I am very shocked that a small newspaper could make an app this good. I just want them to add more features to the app and fix some of the small problems with it. The. The app would be almost perfect.
The old app was awful. The new app is awful too, just in different ways. There are two major problems. One is that it is way too sensitive to touch. When you are scrolling through the screen it takes you to articles that you happened to lightly press on when scrolling. You have to keep your touches to the narrow margins on the sides if you don’t want the app to open up articles. That is not practical. The second problem, and the bigger one, is related to the first. If you happen to touch a photo when scrolling, it opens the photo up and then you can’t close it. The only way to get out is to force quit the app and start all over again. These are problems that any minimum amount of testing should have caught. Another issue just came to mind. Having no photos in the obituary section is a huge step back. I look first at the photos, not the names. I don’t even bother looking at that section now.
Below is my initial review from November. I’ve changed from 2 stars to 1 star. It is now mid-January and...nothing. App still freezes when a photo is even accidentally touched. Beyond frustrating and it was today...50 days after submitting my review that the Apple review dept checked in. FIX IT OR LOSE YOUR CUSTOMERS!!! I’ve got the paid version of this app, and it’s pretty frustrating experience using it. The worst thing is the problem with merely touching a photo: the photo pops up and you cannot close it. You have to delete the app and restart it, which is maddening! I see this problem has existed since at least June 2018, its now end of November and...nada, zip, nothing on a fix.
I can’t even tell you how much I wish this app worked. I read the NYT every day online because I mostly can’t access this one. Although I have a paid, current membership it tells me about every other day that it has expired and I no longer have access to content. This is resolved by removing the whole app, downloading it again and logging in. When I click on pictures I get stuck and I have to close the whole app. Many times the screen just freezes on content and I have to close, reopen and try again. I really enjoy my local paper but find I’m not reading it anymore due tech issues. I hope StarTrib can get things resolved.
This app has had a problem for a long time with the photos in the articles. If you inadvertently touch the photo while scrolling through an article, the photo opens and you cannot get back to the article or app without bailing out entirely and restarting the app. I have written to the developer directly and I see that others have also commented on this, and yet nothing has been done to correct the problem. It is annoying enough that I often don’t bother going back to the app after having to bail out. Fix this already!
