Customer Reviews

  • Kitsap Sun Review

    by Jeffic2002

    Must have an account before reading the entire article/story. Easy to use interface. Local News at your fingertips.

  • Kitsapsun

    by Birddog1977

    Really needs an update! New news items do not always load. I have to reboot my phone to force the app to download updated news.

  • Why

    by Brotsten

    Why isn't there anyway to share an article?

  • Better with update

    by amberforhan

    This app got a little better with the new update but it still needs work... 1. Why do I need push notifications and why do you need my location? You don't offer nearly enough content to justify using these features. 2. There is still no way to comment on a story. (This is also a problem with your mobile site.) This app has tons of potential but still has a long way to go. At least it doesn't crash anymore!

  • Kitsap Fun

    by TeamMW

    I am constantly fulfilled by the content of the Kitsap Sun. Whenever I wonder about the most recent beatdown at East Bremerton nightlife, I check my favorite publication and boom, instant gratification. And now, there's an app for that. If you need to know about who won the most recent beard competition, or what building Kitsap teens burned down last weekend, just whip out your iMobile-device. I am constantly equipped with he most cuting edge stories happening in Kitsap County. A must for any Bremertonian. ... But seriously, we love it.

  • Will be deleting (Again)

    by BOHICA0620

    I was hoping over the last several months the sun would make this app available to all without paying. Unfortunately, nothing has changed. I'm deleting and getting news elsewhere.

  • Requires a Subscription For Content

    by ST4sDucati

    Just like their website, this app requires a Kitsap Sun subscription to be able to read the articles.

  • Deserves NO Stars!

    by IrishCharmer11111

    Version 2.2.0: Don't expect to read any news stories. This is what you will read instead: "You must be a subscriber to view this story. Please log in using your Kitsap Sun account to read the full story." $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ DELETE, DELETE!

  • Worthless

    by Ksmith9956

    Horrible idea to cut off non subscribers. I grew up in Kitsap county and subscribed to the sun for nearly twenty years. I have moved away and always used the app to keep in touch with news from my home town. Now I use the many other options available to get that news instead of the sun because of their ridiculous idea to make it a subscriber only app. Sad.

  • Costs money

    by All good things come to an end

    Not happy about the subscriber requirements. Really $10/mo? What a disappointment, deleting now

  • Archaic

    by Bornfleth

    Charging for news is unnecessary and archaic shouldn't be surprised like most things in Kitsap...way behind the times. App deleted!

  • Charging for Internet news?

    by darth_sensei

    I loved this app until it started asking for a subscription. I get the paper in the mail already. Ill be deleting this as I can't see full stories anyways.

  • Probably the worst!

    by skipmarler

    I would like an online app for the Kitsap Sun to report like a paper not a search engine and!!! Terrible! There is not even a section in sections for classified ads! I search for pets and get a loose tiger in Puyallup

  • Pretty Pix

    by Visual U

    The app was very useful till this last change. This is now a lot more user friendly for your uneducated readers. (Look at the pretty pix)

  • Sections button is gone now

    by ET1SSUSN

    Deleted app since I could not see the 911 section any more. It's worthless to me now.

  • Fail just like their papet

    by Picklgreen

    How can the kitsap sun afford to continue to publish when real papers in seattle cannot? Your app is crap just like the quality of your high school drop out journalists. App auto refreshes every 3 seconds and scrolls to the top. No way to turn this off! Deleting app now...

  • iPad

    by PoulsboSalesGuy

    AAll sudden can't view on iPad. If update for OS4 was not compatible for iPad both versions should have been offered. Very disappointed as I used this app several times per day.
