Not too bad for a quick overview of local and US news, but way too slanted with an anti-Trump agenda. Many of the writers are extremely racist. Barely any customization of what kind of articles you’re most interested in aside from a handful of broad categories. I use this only to get a quick glimpse of what’s trending.
The worst news app 1/5
Still the worst news app out there. You can’t find anything from the current paper. I do better going to Google and finding an article from another source. After so many attempts, why can’t they get it right?
Not working 1/5
By Lionel Jr
Four weeks, maybe even months, when trying to access the app, it will try to load then shut itself off secs later.
No search function. 2/5
How can a newspaper app have no search function?
Update you App 1/5
Why are the most recent letters to editor dated 6/22/17? Today is 6/26/17, 5 days later! Shouldn't a subscription based news app have current info? Better improve soon or I'll cancel my subscription. Not going to continue to pay for old news.
No print edition of Herald on iPhone anymore 1/5
In December I paid for the print edition of the Miami Herald to read on my iPhone. With the new app I cannot!!!!
Disgusting. I will ask for a refund!!!!!!!!!
I have enjoyed getting news from home while I 'm in Texas
Crashes a lot 2/5
The new layout is much more stylish and modern. Unfortunately every time I first open the app, go to Local, select a community and scroll... crash.
New app not good
App keeps crashing 1/5
App opens. Then I start reading an article. About 15 seconds later app crashes and closes. Also the scrolling is not smooth when navigating through an article. As previous person said the old version was just fine.
Awful app now 1/5
By Cay Sea
Format is too busy and I do NOT appreciate an app that I pay monthly for being filled with ads. Total BS
If I could give it less than one star I would 1/5
By Tone Deaf in Miami
Horrible app. The old one was fine. You violated rule #1 "If it ain't broke don't fix it!" The new app is not intuitive. Confusing. Difficult. A huge mistake! Think "New Coke". That's where you are. Go back to the old app!!
Love it! 5/5
Finally a modern look, thus far awesome!
Crapy Update 1/5
By Crapy App 654321
Crapy Update and I have a sponsors add every two stories.
Go back to the drawing board 1/5
General Feedback: This update addressed very few of the deficiencies in the previous version, and is a wasted opportunity to have brought the app up to industry standards at a minimum. Very disappointing, unprofessional and surprisingly terrible from a paper the size and prestige of the Miami Herald.
Specific Feedback: Remove ads on landing page for subscribers - they look cheap.
hate It 1/5
This new look is horrible. They removed the community section. The older version was better
The opening page "Home" doesn't load any or unable to load content. If you move to another section too quickly, the app crashes. There's no ability to edit the sections. Sure you are presented with the option, but try and pick anything and nothing happens. One welcome option is the dark theme.
Unusable app 1/5
By Exiting reader
You'd think after releasing a clunky app and receiving an avalanche of criticism, they'd improve? Wrong.
They don't care.
THEY DON'T CARE
Inconsistent posting of sports on the air. (when they feel like it)
Defaults constantly back to the Top Stories.
Even when you haven't finished the section.
Ads. Ads. Ads. Ads. Even after paying for the app monthly!!!!!
Oh, the grammar and editing are on par with elementary school.
My apologies to elementary schools.
But, they don't care anyway.
This publication has gone to the dogs.
When they go out of business, they'll never know why.
No one reads these.
No one cares anymore.
It's evident by the dismal quality.
The Herald is a good paper, but their digital department might as well be straight of the 90s, I really tried using this app for almost three months, but the functionality is abysmal, poor updates to stories, doesn't seem to match the actual paper , not up to date, etc., etc... too bad, I am willing to pay for access to the Herald on my phone, but the app is so bad it makes the paper next to worthless...
The app needs to revamped 1/5
Only let's one "restore subscription" not enter info for a new digital subscription. No help from herald's digital dept. I cancelled after one month of trying. Take a lesson from ny times.
Too small 2/5
By Miami herald
Kinda disappointed with this new app...on the Ipad Pro it's tiny on the page...any way to have it fill the whole display?
You can't go to an archive to search for an old story. If there is one I couldn't find it. 1/5
You can't go to an archive to search for an old story. If there is one, I couldn't find it.
text issue 1/5
when typing on comments and want to make changes the text locks up and you need to click done two or three times to be able to continue typing
No Search Option 1/5
If I can't find tge Search option, I don't use the app. I don't want to be forced to go thru all to find what I am looking for.
Very annoying 1/5
Why won't it allow me to view it in the horizontal view? Why won't it let me enter any terms for searching? Every time I try to read it, I just give up. This is the most annoying newspaper app I have. I keep hoping it will improve, because I really want to read the Miami Herald...but so far, it's just not happening.
Too many ads!!! 1/5
App is hard to use because the pop up ads are blocking view of the stories on both the iPhone and iPad. The ads are strategically placed so that you constantly click them by accident and then It takes you out of the story. I am a subscriber to the paper, I wish that qualified for an ad free AP. It is painful to use.
Where's "Search" Option? 3/5
Decent, if not exciting, news app, but would benefit greatly with a search option.
No subscriber services 1/5
By Buck n ear
Logged on to make changes to my subscription. Wasn't available for such use. Really?
As bad as it can get... 1/5
By Steve in Miami
This app is cranky, confusing and practically unusable. It has no landscape mode, does not allow articles to be forwarded (check out the New York Times app, Herald, it is possible!)
No landscape mode? Terrible overall design.
Back to old version. If no fix before they quit servicing old version, it will be no Herald!
Could be so much better 1/5
It feels like someone developed this app, then clocked out, collected his or her check, and went home. Never to return again. Hey Herald, pay someone to make your app less painful and mind-numbingly embarrassing. Stories repeat themselves as I scroll down..... a lot. There's also a lot of lag when scrolling which makes me hit "google news Miami" for local stories. Seriously, take a look at other local newspaper apps and do that. You really need to do it. Print media as a whole is counting on you to save the world, perhaps even the known universe.
Will not show in landscape, needs more detailed breakdown of sections!!
Quality paper 5/5
By Capt Dennis
One of the better papers in the United States
Disappointingly ugly 1/5
I'm assuming many eyes saw this new design before it was green lighted. That's why it's so hard to understand it. How is it possible that so many people agreed on this abortion of a design. Why can't the Miami Herald look like a newspaper ? What were you people trying to accomplish ? Look @ the NYT and WaPo. Those are fun and easy to navigate apps.
I have it on my iPad too and it's not terrible. I works well on my 4S too. It isn't glitchy, doesn't crash, only 22mb. I would like a search function tho
News Flash 1/5
This app stinks. Can't find many articles that are in print edition. Difficult to search, incomplete.
Very old fashion Technology 1/5
By Xfinity Fan Sad
Recording a payment and record for the Digital version is EASY---BUT using and connecting to the Digital Press 5 --- it is very COMPLEX... And very old fashioned.
Should review process of connection once you Register and Pay!!!
Doesn't Work 1/5
I can't get this App to work. Quite frustrating.
You want us to pay for this? 1/5
You can only view so many free stories before they force you to pay for a monthly, app-only subscription. Ridiculous...if the app had a fixed cost for permanent ownership (e.g $0.99, $1.99) I would pay, but $6.99/mo...? Please do us a favor and run an editorial on your dealer.
Login to read every article! 1/5
I pay a subscription of.99 every month and I have to log in every time I want to read an article! Come on, MH! Get your act together! Why do I pay for this?
Doesn't work 1/5
Even with the app, the monthly subscription, it consistently denies access, and there seems to be no channel to solve this
Terrible app 1/5
By Maria Berei
Bad app, you have to login to read each letter to the editor . This is the worst app I have monthly subscription the news is not updated daily in
sections. No stars it's garbage
Updates and push notification!! 4/5
By Mr. Miami II
Glad to have updates that fixed most of the bugs. Most importantly the push notifications. Now please fix your crashing iPAD app!!
If you guys are gonna be in the mobile news app business you've got to understand that you need to send push notifications to your users, Theirs a big difference in being a newspaper and a mobile app, we cant always just read our phones at will thats why you need to alert us mobile users when something happens....were mobile!!!!
They'll make you buy a subscription. Not worth it
2 stars only because ... 2/5
the app is a pain. I subsribe thru itunes and the prompt will come up to subscribe and this has been happening for months !! Please fix!!!
Poor iTunes subscription service 1/5
Skip this app, go for Sun Sentinel instead!
The Subscription service through iTunes works about 10% of the time. This problem has been ongoing for over a year. No reason this shouldn't be fixed by now.
Good app, but..... 3/5
Great app!! Only thing is lately it crashes, and won't open up at all no matter how much I try.
HAVE TO PAY $0.63/DAY?! NO WAY! (=$18.90/month?!) 1/5
I downloaded this app and loved it at first. It was a great way to get a few quick updates for the Miami area.
But then today I guess I hit a "trial limit"? (Which was never mentioned, I could never tell I was on a trial.) The only option is to now pay $0.63/day to subscribe!?
In todays digital age of online content you should be generating income from advertising, or charging way less than $0.63/day. That's $18.90/month to read news online for 5-10 mins a day...
Not gonna happen! At least not by me!
Keep getting kicked off 1/5
By hoo hoo mooo
poor app. I keep getting kicked off subscription and cannot access it.
I have to delete it and re-install every month
