Akron Beacon Journal e-Edition App Reviews

  • Current Version

    By Mamma5
    This app stinks. This use to be my go to app every night to read the news but when they changed it they ruined it. If you want to read the current news look elsewhere.
  • Says no internet connection

    When I DO have internet connection! Opens to past edition.
  • Messed up!

    By slccmh
    After install, I am stuck in an endless loop of messages to update, selection of type of content, select edition. . . Then bsck to prompt to update app,which is already done, etc. Restarted and still no way to get the e edition. My next two alternatives in order are uninstall and reinstall the app, then cancel my subscription.
  • Joke

    By Slarvey
    Settings don't remember your settings and takes a lifetime to load. Best to use browser.

    Never received e-mail with instructions to activate app - don't waste your time with this one
  • Please fix this app!

    I love the Akron Beacon Journal and reading it digitally is wonderful... when it works. All too often it won't open the digital edition, there is no "contact us" to report or resolve problems, there seem to be a too many bugs that causes the app to spontaneously close. I was once told by someone at customer service (yes, I used a phone and called someone) to delete the app and reload it. So I did. Then I tried to log on. Nope, nothing I did allowed me to sign in. Nothing. Tried half a dozen times before giving up and venting my frustration by writing this review. Please ABJ, resolve some of these bugs. I am a long time subscriber and want my digital edition to pop up on demand, I don't want to jump through a dozen hoops or retry multiple times to read the news. Nuance this app and make it work properly all the time, for all of us.
  • Crash prone and advertising oriented

    By NT Squirel
    You would be better off with the print version!
  • Gone from good to bad!

    By Dcman2
    I had the old app, which I liked because it allowed me to go to sports and select by pro teams, colleges or high school news. Not I don't see a section tab, rather just a bunch of promoted stories that are organized in no logical sequence as far as I can tell. Ugh.
  • Improvement

    By SurfNOhio
    Glad the app now has live feeds throughout the day in addition to the print replica! Easier to view & share!
  • Does not free up space

    I am "keeping" the minimum three editions; but this is using 1.5 GB on a Thursday? I guess that it must never delete old editions. Follow up ... Just had to delete it again on my iPad as it was using 4.3 GB while only storing a so-called three editions. Is there a worst app ever award? Latest version downloads feed first, which takes 30 seconds. Afterwards, you need another 30 to download the edition. Why do I pay 5 or 10 a month for this?
