  • Where are the comics!!

    By DooganMcG
    All of the news bits are AMAZING. There’s just one other thing I grew up on. THE COMICS!! I just can’t find them?yes!
  • It’s great if you only want day old news

    By nevets95
    Pulling up archived papers works really well, but the home tab always displays an error and never loads any current articles.
  • Constant crashes

    By vodvill
    The content of the Star is top notch but I cannot read it all the time without this bug infested app crashing. I have done multiple deletes, downloads and restarts to correct this. This is the only advice the developers have to solve these problems. They rely on me having to take the disappointing effort to fix it rather than doing any real coding solutions on their side
  • This App is Very Flawed

    By shouldntbethishars
    A couple of months ago the feed of top stories stopped flowing. Now, I get an message that says “Error in fetching feeds”. I have contacted KC Star Customer Service many times and all I get is the same advice: empty the cache, delete the App and then reinstall the App. I have done this numerous times and get the same results. My one star isn’t only for the App but also for the robotic and ineffective customer service.
  • App is faster clicking to open notifications

    By TomcruiserMO
    I am pleased to report that since my last review that the speed to open from a notification to read the story has improved markedly. So, increasing my rating from 2 to 4 stars as a result. The app could still be faster navigating within the app. Also, the overall navigation itself is not the most user friendly which is why I am not giving it a 5th star.
  • Pop up ads

    By Dhelton410
    In addition to lots of ads which is expected and I accept as necessary there are occasional pop up ads. Sometimes they continually pop up making it impossible to read an article. This morning I was asked to sign in to read an article even though I was already signed in. I tried to sign in sgain but the pop up ads prevented me from doing that. Response to the developer’s response: I already did a reinstall and cleared the cache. You have a problem with pop up ads and you need to deal with it.
  • Useless on iPhone

    By Jposterman
    I have not been able to use the iPhone app to read the paper for months. I am able to access the e Edition but not just read stories on the app as I used to. I’ve tried uninstalling and logging back in. Always get the same error fetching feeds notice. Please fix this.
  • Buggy app doesn’t work

    By eschot
    Live news feeds through the digital edition don’t work. Error fetching content is the only thing that shows. This hasn’t worked correctly in months. Please fix.
  • Needs an update

    By Limaboy
    The app will not allow sign in and will not load content. Requests for help have been ignored
  • Home feed not working

    By 216Kings
    This app has always been frustrating with lots of glitches. It's the least user friendly news app that I read. The latest challenge: the home feed option doesn't work on my iPad. Happened earlier this month which means I'm stuck with only the eEdition.
