Customer Reviews

  • Great news app!

    by STX_88

    Love using this app to stay up-to-date on all the latest news in the Coastal Bend! Also, the videos are a nice touch and good quality.

  • Good

    by Claitrertyff

    Really good

  • Great option to get your news in the go!

    by Bethany637

    I love using this when I'm on the go or running errands. Any down time is easy to fill and stay up to date on the news. App crashes every now and then, and I'm not sure what parameters it uses for pop up alerts but I've only gotten 2 and they were both regarding a non emergent matter. Those are my only criticisms.

  • Don't want out comments?

    by rsgon

    How about a way to comment on the pieces? I'm on an iPhone and use the app daily, but I can only read comments and not give my 2-cents...

  • Irritated!

    by LauraFord

    The app was great until a couple of days ago. The "Now" section is not refreshing & all I'm getting is a blank screen.

  • It's ok

    by rickrent6770

    Would be nice if you could post comments!

  • Missing something

    by Personfromhere

    No ability to click on sections of the paper like sports or business. Old version was better, I wish I hadn't updated to this one.

  • Pretty good

    by brianlaw72

    But needs to add ability to share stories via email, twitter and Facebook

  • Great!

    by Sam_H

    Great app! Nice to be able to get read articles that were just released. I would like to know when we'll be able to log in and post comments on the articles. That would be great!

  • Need updating

    by blueplanetarts

    Please fix

  • Decent but no ios 4

    by Lady Vohn

    Decent app. Keeps me up to date quickly with main stories. Does not work under iOS 4.0. Will be great if we could get an updated app soon.

  • Problems

    by woodythewonderdog

    Surprisingly decent app, but will not open under iOS 4. Sigh...

  • Great start Cc,TX

    by firefighter217

  • Vantastic 5!

    by Furrylore

    Soo cool I gotta do a 6/5 but then the ratio be off... But 5/5 works too!

  • Fantastic

    by garzaj007

    Great app! Way to go Caller-Times!

  • Nice job

    by peni32

    I thought this would just be a link to the site, but it's a lot more than that... Nice surprise... Now if you guys could just improve in content... J/k

  • Login failures

    by Kandor28

    Since requiring a subscription, this app will not remember activated user names. I have to reactivate my subscription now every time I try to login. Too much of a hassle to use now.

  • Log on

    by 1 sonofagun

    Now have to have paid subscription and log on to read stories..I can read the news in many places...not worth the effort or money for me

  • Upgrades are useless

    by Lefty Lane

    Obviously whoever maintains this app is on an extended leave of absence. The poor reviews about the Now section go back into 2011and are still valid. I get better current news by word of mouth when I stop for coffee in the morning. This is a joke. Oxymoron - "news". Ps I only rated this app at one star because it won't let you do a half.

  • Caller

    by Popsci

    Change it back. Very limited! This upgrade was a mistake. Made it pretty much worthless. Typical MSM, only let's you read what they want you to read. I think I will delete it now and find another news source. OK, you had your chance to change it back. This app is useless to me in it's current form. I still cannot see the obits and no way to share on facebook. I am deleting this from my phone!

  • Was good once...

    by rcrakerjax18

    This was a great app until the latest update. Now you are unable to read stories from different sections like sports, opinion and local entertainment. Instead, you can check the weather. Um, thanks? They really dropped the ball with the last update.

  • Needs to be updated

    by Jacobg0080

    I used to love this app, but now it doesn't open on my iPhone 4, it just crashes every time, please update it asap

  • Was great...:(

    by Superfamguyfan

    This app was very good I would not know anything about what goes on in this city if it was not for this app.....but ever since software update to 4.0 the app crashes every time and does open ever ....hoping for an update real soon please
