This is absolutely the WORST news app I've encountered so far. For each article, you get the headline, a picture, and a bunch of ads. What's missing is all the news text. Pitiful, like to was created by a 12 year old! (Sorry, kids)
This app has no real-time connection to the Merc's website. It is one of the worst news apps that I've used. I'm deleting it and will read the paper through direct link via Goggle.
Every time I read a Q&A column it is incomplete. Will show a question, but not the answer, or will show part of an answer without the question. This us basic stuff.
Local news What a joke! Where is that part of the news paper. I used to read the local and crime & court section. Why would you not think it's not important to know what goes on in the community. You are a news paper so report it.
Zero Stars for new update. New version is even worse. Still slow and crashes, and now more difficult to find the news I'm interested in. Downgraded to one star from two stars. Takes multiple attempts to start and keep running, and now the fonts are messed up and difficult to read. It crashes frequently and content updates are erratic. I use several other news apps (BBC, Reuters, New York Times), they ALL work MUCH better, faster and more reliably than the Mercury News app. It's an embarrassment for a Silicon Valley app. We used to subscribe to the paper version until the service got so bad we cancelled, looks like they don't want anyone read
Too much push of worthless fluff to overcome the difficulty of getting actual news. Used to be useful, but now is just a vehicle for ads.
