It's okay but for premium you are simply paying for a convenience. It lets you clip article sections and share. That's nice. It uses the Chronicling America site and only goes through 1924. Wish it went further out. Google News archives is better for lengthier searches.
Don't waste your time on this junk app. This app tries to get money for nothing. I searched a known event the 1st search and it says nothing found. I'm sure it won't until I exhaust my free trial searches. I'm done! Uninstall..
I have used Chronicling America before, this makes it so much easier! Multiple ways to search, you can have searched saved, saved your last searches.* Only 1 bad thing. The dates numbers are so small I can't read them without magnifying glass. *
I didn't realize until after I purchased that it only searches Chronicling America which I have already searched extensively. Did not let me request refund within 2 hours. Added: The developer offered a prompt, courteous refund. The refund issue was a misrepresentation on Google's part, not the developer. If I knew that additional Newspaper websites could be accessed in the future, I would continue to use. Perhaps a snippet could be offered and then a link to any other subscription site would help make this app more versatile. If there is any hope of this in the future, I would withdraw request for a refund.
I can't understand why this app won at rootstech. There's no improvement over the searches at Chronicling - it's just putting more emphasis on first names in your search.
I love this app it makes it so easy to find ancestors in newspapers. It is a big plus for family history research
