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.
I have had minimal problems with crashes when using the app on my iPad. It is as close to reading the real paper as one can get using a tablet. My primary problem with it is the subscription price for a month is $10 (plus $1 tax) but the News doesn't seem willing yet to cut this price at least in half now that the print edition is coming out only three days a week. I am dropping my e-subscription until the pricing is changed. Reading the news on my iPad just isn't worth $11 a month for a three-times-a-week newspaper.
Purchased this app over a week ago from iTunes. Have not been able to log on yet. The app gives password error message. Have spoken to two managers at Birmingham news and had 6 lengthy calls to them seeking help. First they said they didnt have record of payment through iTunes. When they had that, the managers told me they would have it working that day and would call me back to verify. Neither manager did. Sixth call- they now say there is a problem with the app developer and I'm just going to have to wait until they fix it and they don't have any idea when that will be! Will gladly update my review if I can ever view the news on this app. Until then, I give it one star and if they had a zero star, I would have chosen that! UPDATE: Josh at Bham News was able to identify problem and fixes were applied to the app by the developers. I can now read the news, which is awesome! For anyone having problems with sign in on the ipad (user name/password incorrect)- you have to click the button like you are subscribing again and a new button appears that says reset itunes sub (you are not charged for another account) Click that button and the application works! Thanks for the fix!!!!
This app was listed as a free app. I downloaded it and then found out I couldn't use it without purchasing a weekly subscription. After deleting the app from my iPad I went back to the listing and found hidden at the bottom of the screen something that said the desktop version had a charge. I have two questions: 1. Why was that information not in a very prominent place rather than being underneath the arrow and then down at the bottom of the page? 2. Why is it listed in the app store as a free install?
Too often the only "news" displayed in the app is the daily comics. Very frustrating! And at least once ear week there is no download at all. The news app, in its current version, is not worth the bother. This needs to revert to the previous version until all the kinks have been worked out. We also lost the interactive crossword puzzle feature with this version.
I have had this app for over a month and still have not been able to log on. I call that stealing. I have talk to customer service and they told me to act like I'm purchasing it again ( will not charge me, it didn't ) and it will prompt me to restore it. I did that, and it still did not work. I now have emailed them and we will see how long it takes for them to respond and get it resolve. I know they won't refund you. Anyone reading this......SAVE YOUR TIME and YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE. They need to have it right before trying to do something that's obviously out of their league!
