  • Very old content, can not read articles

    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.
  • Terrible App.

    This app for the iPhone is a terrible app. It crashes frequently and constantly has to reload. There are pop-ups on every page. Very difficult to read any articles without getting some sort of pop-up response. Needs to be completely redesigned. Frustrating!
  • Finally! A search feature!

    The lack of a search feature let the Democrat & Chronicle app bury unpopular news stories via content filtering and a rating feedback loop. This update FINALLY enables readers to find news that doesn’t make the front page. Much thanks to the developers for listening and responding to criticism!
  • Functionality is terrible

    No search function, so when I am looking for an article, I have to search on Google. Who needs the app? Also, My Account is usually “not available.” That is ridiculous. And when I call, the hold time is so long I usually hang up, or today, my call was dropped.
  • D and C

    Paper has reasonable local content. On line version is clunky and has too many pop ups. Very difficult to maneuver around some sections like the obituaries.
  • Good app with a few fixable problems

    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.
  • Great local news!

    Strong team of reporters and editors doing great work to tell Rochester's story.
  • In-depth Local News Stories

    Our region's TV stations just skim the surface of local news. I'm glad the D&C takes the time to thoroughly research and report local news stories.
  • Thumbs up for local news

    I am most appreciative of access to local news and sports. Most articles are informative and well written. Although I still like "feeling" a newspaper, this is a great complement to other online national apps. Thank you!
  • Ignores and bypasses notification settings

    Great to have a decent app for our local paper. Great news coverage, including investigative team. But for the App: I like to be able to customize notifications for breaking news. I have mine set to notify for NEWS ONLY, no sports, nothing else. But still get several "breaking news" alerts every week for players questionable to play for the Bills due to such things as wonky ankles. This is not news, people, this is sports.
