The Providence Journal, R.I. App Reviews

  • Absolutely horrible

    By ManceRayder
    The constant flow of ads makes the app keep jumping making you lose your place in whatever you’re reading. It is so bad that I most likely will not renew my subscription to the Providence Journal.
  • App hasn't worked in over a week

    By gsankey
    I used the app daily for months without too much of an issue. Now it won't scroll at all and I can't select any articles. Hopefully they revamp this app.
  • Why change?

    By Mike from Riverside
    I loved this app before it was “improved”. It was great to be able to read the paper like you were actually paging through the paper version. Why take that option away? I see from other reviews that I’m not the only one.
  • Where’s the journal

    By Quiltingsue1
    I wanted the version that replicated the print version. This new update is confusing. I liked seeing the front page news and then selecting the sections. This is a huge disappointment. I may delete it as it is not useful
  • Ads Ads Ads ..

    By High Handicapper
    Wasn’t a bad news app. I pay for the iPad app for the daily newspaper and is well worth it. But as I’m told they don’t offer anything like that for the iPhone. Problem: The Ads are do bad that they take over the article. You spend more time trying to get rid of the ads so you can read the article. I’m deleting this app.. Because of this problem this news App is Worthless. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME.. You should get rid of the company who does you advertising.. that causes this to happen.
  • Update Is Terrible

    By etarnowski320
    The newest update has ruined this app. The former version was much more user friendly and had a better look. Very disappointing.
  • Very disappointing

    By Former Journal reader
    The content is not as robust as one would expect from a newspaper and the writing is poor. The application also crashes regularly.
  • Crassly focused on advertisers first

    By Wishing Rocks RI
    Designed to be always shifting content by rotataing ads, this app makes the articles really difficult to find and read because your place is always changing. ProJo, remember that without readers your ads have no value. Redesign the app so content stays in place. If not, I’ll just stop reading and rely on your competitors.
  • I really like liike. (Liike)

    By Bmrtins0324
    Gives just about all information. Now time ..
  • Too Much Sports

    By Goldnsilverboy
    There are too many sports related stories in the News section. Sports should be in the Sports section. I like that news is frequently updated and it is well written. More local news would be preferable. The weather forecast is not very adequate.
