  • Horrible App

    By ed12334567
    I subscribed for one month and almost immediately canceled. App does not open cleanly nor recognize your subscription until you go through various screens advising you to subscribe. After cancelling these out you get to the digital paper which many days only has a partial paper. Terrible app.
  • App

    By Carol JB
    It downloads Wrong newspaper
  • Failed to Load

    By ETFWiphone
    After recent iOS update this app would not load any version of the Harrisburg Patriot-News. It did load the Omaha edition which does nothing for me here in Harrisburg, PA. I. Did get a message 'No feed found'.
  • Bug fix required

    By Edenridge
    The Harrisburg Patriot News app opens to the home page of the Omaha World Herald on Apple iPad. The Patriot News has difficulty delivering the physical paper on a regular basis and the app was always a backup. Now they can't even deliver the digital version.
  • Major space hog

    By D15589
    Consumes gigabytes of space if you don't monitor it carefully. I've selected the setting to store only three editions offline but, at last count, there were 29 editions in storage taking up about 1.5GB.
  • Bait and switch

    By AGuitarMusicFan
    While the app's performance is sluggish for all the reasons noted by other reviewers, my complaint is with PN's "bait and switch". I still subscribe to the hard copy weekend edition. That entitled me to receive the electronic print editions for the Tuesday and Thursday editions... until sometime within the past few weeks. Now they want me to subscribe to keep receiving these two weekly editions. Sorry, but the value proposition isn't sufficient to warrant me forking over additional money. I believe I'll also not be renewing my subscription for the weekend edition after that subscription nears the end of its term.
  • Lousy app, lousy price.

    By Moose L
    I downloaded this app since the actual daily paper edition is being curtailed. But it leaves much to be desired. I did not buy the subscription but did view the sample edition. The electronic edition seems to be no more than a scanned edition of the actual paper. It is not sized to the ipad, so in order to view the whole page you have to drag your finger around the whole screen. This causes the page to constantly reload and it does so slowly. Often times this reloading caused the app to crash. Tapping on the next page should bring you to the top of that page. Most people who read down to the bottom of a page and tap the next page do not want to start that next page on the bottom of it. The thumbnail setting displays pages too small to be of any use. Instead of trying to force the newspaper onto a tablet they should design a layout that is built for one. I'm sure it would increase subscription rates. For a clean easy to navigate layout I think the NY Post nailed it. Until then I think I'll wait on this one. Update: At the beginning of the year this paper went from a daily publication to just 3 days (tu,th,su). But the subscription price remains the same for just 12 editions per month. Not worth $1.33 an issue. All other problems with the app are still the same too. Nothing changing with this paper.

    Wanted to see demo of the app, it simply wouldn't load. Tried it 3 times. We just cancelled our subscription to the print version, we won't be paying for this electronic one.
  • PN app online terrible

    By App Terrible
    This should make someone ashamed. It is slow, sometimes will not load, is very, very, very slow to resolve. This app is so bad it will not even take my review about how bad it is.
  • Bought subscription, no paper!

    By Cw1352469
    Bought subscription through app store, it worked for 1 day. Now every time I start the app I am prompted to buy a subscription. I cannot access the paper. I call cust. Support at the Patriot. They say it is not their problem. DO NOT BUY A SUBSCRIPTION THORUGH THE APP STORE.
