ABOUT STARS AND STRIPES SUBSCRIPTIONS
Subscriptions to Stars and Stripes digital content can be purchased by visiting
[ https://www.stripes.com/subscribe ].

Your subscription supports our mission of keeping U.S. personnel informed with uncensored, First Amendment protected news and information. When you purchase a subscription you help fund the delivery of thousands of print newspapers to forward-deployed personnel around the world.

Stars and Stripes is a non-appropriated funds organization receiving less than half of our funding from the DOD and the rest from advertising and subscriptions.

For those who are not forward deployed and who are interested in news that impacts the U.S. military, we charge a nominal subscription for our print and digital content to ensure we are able to meet our mission successfully every day.

We continually work to make the best app possible. Send us comments at: appfeedback@stripes.com

From an app perspective, it's solid in terms of organization and UI. From a price standpoint, it's 1 star ridiculous. Without an overpriced subscription, one can only read the front page stories. For all the other sections, one just has to search Google for the subject story and almost certainly find it for free from multiple other news source. To have to pay $40 a year for very little original content is insulting. As it's partially partially subsidized by the US gov (taxpayers), I would think $12 a year maximum (with no ads) and free with ads would be fair. Otherwise it's a 1 star rip-off.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry you are disappointed with our app. Your message has been shared with our teams for their information. If you click on the Menu once you open the app, you can read about other topics of interest to the military community, e.g., "U.S. News" and "Veterans News". Thanks again for your feedback.

I also have the problem where I can sign in using a web browser, but Android only crashes. I submitted a crash report through the app and quickly received a response that informed me that I needed at least android 8.0 (I have 9.0), and app version 4.4.2 (which is the iOS version) while the Google Play store has 2.2 7. I sent back a reply informing them of this, and haven't heard anything back yet (5 days now). Android support seems to be lacking when they refer you to "that other system".

We are sorry for the trouble. We recently released updated versions of our Android app (ver 2.2.9). The latest version of our Android app is available at the Google Play Store and is compatible with Android devices 8.0 and higher. Please contact us at memberservices@stripes.com if you continue to experience a problem with our app. Thank you.

Fails to deliver. I purchased this app sever years ago, when their website changed to subscription based. Originally billed as pay once, gree access thereafter. Over the last few years content has steadily become more restrictive, but the main headlines have always. Send readable. Now, on the app I purchased, I cannot access any content. Good job, Stripes. Instead of subsidizing your government funding with data from me as a reader, I will go elsewhere for my news.
