  • Is this a sports app? What happened to the news?

    By Mr bigglesworth89124
    Wayyyyyy too many sports stories. Literally maybe 4/5 articles are sports related. I want news. Not sports entertainment. And I had to turn off notifications because during any playoffs season, I was getting notifications before each game started, at least 1 during the game, and another after. Why???! I DIDNT DOWNLOAD THIS FOR SPORTS NEWS!! deleted.
  • Ad-Free does not work

    By Cup4drw
    I like the app and wanted to support the paper, so I purchased the ad-free subscription. However, it does not seem to do anything. All the ads are still embedded.
  • Poor

    By French7255
    Poor research. Not ALL the facts.
  • Love this paper. I have read the Free Press since I was 10 years old

  • Thank you

    By Home run Tommy
    I live in Flint Michigan, however, my hometown is Ypsilanti Mi. I use the app to keep current with Southeast Michigan I love to read! I also use MLive to keep up with the Ann Arbor area more specifically Ypsilanti.
  • DFP app is great.

    By CAtourist
    Easy to use app which supports great Journalism!!
  • App is ok but

    By jim5666
    The app has no place to write a review of the newspaper news items. The paper itself is garbage and no place to tell them to keep the biased out of their reporting.
  • Voter guide comment

    By bootjack yooper
    We appreciate the voter guide the Free Press has put together. So informative, easy to use and readers throughout the state can be helped by it. Dave Liimatta Brighton
  • New Clickbait Headline Style Stinks

    By KevinHall
    The new way the headlines are being written is awful. It makes it sound like a bot trying to garner clicks instead of an actual newspaper headline. This isn’t BuzzFeed, they should write like it. The app is fine in general to use. I wish the night mode wasn’t buried so deep in the UI or could be put on a timer with the sun. It’s easy to change the font size which I did once ever, but annoying to change to dark mode every night and back in the morning.
  • Plays Audio Video Ads unprompted now!

    By americandadinchina
    This app now will start playing advertisements unsolicited. And if in a meeting or event or somewhere else trying to read the paper very subtly, you could get called out with a loud obnoxious advertisement. Not using this app anymore.
