  • Great for sports

    By Ken D K
    Read it every day
  • Pictures out of sync with copy!!!

    By Mabovoice
    I don't know if it is a mindless auto fill problem but it seems that when I click on specific article it first shows a completely unrelated photo to the copy. Check todays story about Lions QB buying a house in Georgia. The first thing you see is a photo of a Red Wings hockey player completely unrelated to the story I want. And this happened thought the app. Someone is not vetting layout! It needs to be fixed. M. Beltaire
  • When it works it can't be beat

    By Snow guy
    The free press is The NY Times of the Midwest when the app is working. If the programmer gets its act together it cannot be beat.
  • Problems

    By Bingo fan 69

  • Sports in the D!

    I check 3 things on my phone each morning. The Freep is always first and the most fun! The postings are timely and most stories load quickly.
  • App Stopped Working

    By BMMTroyMi
    I used to really appreciate being able to read the local news on the Freep App, but the app has stopped responding on the last few weeks. Once in the app, you are unable to click on more than one article to read. Soooo frustrating. I did contact customer service but have yet to receive a reply. I am loath to delete the app, but it is useless at the moment.
  • Latest update doesn't work

    By Moodge01
    I updated the app and it no longer works. Deleted and installed again. Same issue.
  • Update version not working

    By Raptr7
    The latest update rendered this app worthless for my iPad. I am running 10.3. But now when I open the app and to use an article, it doesn't open. Are you supporting my version? I guess I will find a new news app
  • Update upset!

    By 1979akc
    The latest update on Nov. 26 will not work properly on my IPad. The articles will not open! This update should be updated ASAP!
