    It’s a really good app...... I would like to be able to open the pictures that are next to the titled stories, though.

  • Can't read story

    By Jpret
    The app opens and I can navigate selecting different sections however I can't open specific stories to read them. No matter the window. This is only true of this app, everything else functions normally.

    Is there anyone on staff there that could find a Lion’s buyer? A new owner that would do what it takes to make the team competitive. The Lion’s have not been anything to praise since the Bobby Layne days. Not sure why the Detroit fans have remained so loyal? Pathetically disappointing. BIll
  • Update upsets!

    Since the latest update I can't open nearly half of the news articles for both the Det News and the Free Press on my IPad. The update needs an update!
  • Ad Free???

    By TeddieJackEddie
    I purchased the ad free subscription ($2.99 per month) because l am sick of the chaos the ads create with the interface. What do you think happened after the purchase? Correct! There were ads all over the place! I cancelled immediately. All I can say POOR. Beware.
  • Integrity

    By Themadtaxi
    I have always depended on the Detroit news for honest and informative reporting I have lived abroad for years and depend on the Detroit news to keep me tuned in to what is happening in my home town and with all my favorite sports teams.
  • Great App but need to improve picture viewing

    By sp lions fan
    I have used the detnews app for at least 8 years. It’s great for keeping up with my home town. Especially my sports teams. I live in Chicago now. Only suggestion I have: please let me expand the view of the photographs that show up with the title of the article. Or add them again in the article itself. It’s disappointing sometimes when I can’t inspect those photos more closely. I use an IPhone. Perhaps that makes a difference.
  • Editing

    By Carhauler4u
    Please use an editor. So many errors. Even messed up a list of 11 michigan billionaires.
  • Like the news, dislike the new super obnoxious ads

    By KevinHall
    The new video ads that pop open 3 or more times while reading one article are ridiculous. I’m fine with ads, I get wanting to push subscriptions, but interrupting reading a single article with the same full screen ad multiple times is just obnoxious.
