Technically, the app works but you can only find limited recent stories arranged by date. At times, there are several news headline categories IF the you can find the categories in setting. Sometimes, the categories can be found in settings but like today, it's nonexistent. My biggest complaint is the lack of being able to search the data base for specific stories previously posted or even a general word search.

When they rolled out the new website that made my eyes hurt, I had to give up on The Local - it's a shame they didn't do more accessibility testing before rolling it out. Then I remembered the app. Which is far easier on my eyes! Unfortunately it's not easy finding the same level of articles within the app as the website, but it's still better than no access.

Update: They fixed the membership problems in the update. Kudos on listening to your readers! The journalism and articles deserve the subscription. I can't imagine a better way to keep abreast of important (foreigner related) news in English. The only negative is that the app itself is just a browser, but this is not a deal breaker.
