    by Pita X

    Great app to get caught up of all the local news. Fast and easy and is exact same as real newspaper.

  • Great app but...

    by Rusty 200X

    Please stop sending out so many "who cares" notifications. I don't want to shut off notifications completely because I don't want to miss something important but I don't care what Marty Walsh is saying during his inauguration speech.

  • Fantastic

    by Tangent2

    Great content, presentation and organization.

  • My paper

    by Wat Woman

    by Margy too

    Every morning I look forward to opening up my Herald. easy to navigate and lots of news.

  • Easy!

    by Peanut1776

    Easy to figure out how to use. Easier than most to select a section to read as the selection choices are in a large format. Great articles. Ads are obnoxious-so downgrading from 5 to 3 stars

  • My daily herald

  • Site

    by The Benoit

    Great layout an easy to view articles in a quick manner

  • Boo Radley

    by Bup's Best

    I love this app and read it every day. Wish I could add/read comments though after a particular article.

  • Avid Sports Fan

    by Boston fan living in NC

    I read The Herald every day. The best news for all sports is written in Boston.

  • Accessed every day

    Great app.first thing I check on every day...

  • Great App

    by Blaze207303

    Very streamlined.

  • Good to read

    by PhilS9

    Worth the read but sometimes fails to load up.

  • Very good App

    by Gnome friend

    The format is easy to use, and the ads aren't too intrusive.

  • Terrible

    by Nelle18

    If there were only one problem,I'd give more stars but the site has little new content...and what is there isn't always current. Among the issues: *site crashes very often *old news (2 weeks old!) as prominent as breaking news *Food/dining section is empty *Incessant promotion of Herald Radio

  • Good sight but hangs a lot...

    by FrankG Speedy

    Kind of slow. Sometimes unstable as well.

  • Landscape and sports

    by Yosef bar Yosef

    Needs landscape mode No sports? I understand why a separate ap works for sports fans but I would like a sports category in the regular ap

  • Boston Herald

    by Purplezaza

    Great app, I love the pop up, it gives u just the right amount of information.

  • Boston Herald

    by Uta3000

    Love it! Read it every day.

  • Good

    by 2souls1mate

    Is good

  • Gov

    by Yddac

    Great all up to date

  • Too much unnecessary glitter

    by Tgmerlin

    The objective is to read the News and columns- the new layout provides no real improvement. But I wouldn't give up the app.

  • Got to have it if you live in Mass

    by Jsn5006

    It broke my heart to see WTKK change formats. Now, I can hear good quality news and talk at any time of day. The app occasionally will lose the stream which is frustrating, but only on a data connection. Pandora doesn't have that problem because they can buffer more content ahead of it hitting your ears. If you miss hearing more common sense in radio download this app!!

  • Good app.

    by Capecod mike

    It's a good app. Does what I need I like the updates of important information

  • Absolute best !

    by Billy Noname

    Easy to use and very informative and unbiased. I would like the comics online also.

  • New Herald Format

    by Sidecar Gent

    I love it! New design is well thought out. As usual great news coverage. With the Sports News designed the same way, I open the Herald first thing in the morning. Thanks... dgb

  • Obnoxious SPRINT pop up

    by CurtV

    You now can't even read an article without your entire screen being hijacked by an ad by Sprint. This happens over and over, with no way to stop it. So much for reading the Herald on line. Thanks a Fffffing lot!

  • Boston HERALD

    by Fedora Al

    I enjoy reading the Herald on my I Pad. Looking for past articles is not difficult. I wish they would incorporate all of the comics to an on linestatus. Keep up the good work

    by Sak43

    The Herald app works flawlessly on my iPad. Great for keeping current on the news.

  • Newsy

    by Spellbinde

    If you need a Boston news app, this is very good. If you gave a few apps, it's redundant.

  • Yawn

    by Denver too

    This is fine app; after all, wether Boston Globe uses it, too.

  • Tedious

    by Just the Facts, Ma'am

    Too many ads, too many cookies, too much self-promotion.

  • Less Than Stellar News App

    by Rocket2Me

    What I find most maddening: getting a badge/alert, launching the app to see the details, but then NADA...: - ( The least that should occur when I bite and launch the app to see the alert: the alert DETAILS.
