Nobody updates the news 1/5
By waste of time 2018
Just installed this app. One of the top 3 headlines is “McCain wins ‘08 GOP nomination. Great news - only ten years out if date.
Why would I want to pay for news I could get elsewhere? I thought I’d try to show some loyalty being a native, but the content is not exclusive enough to warrant a monthly subscription. Better news apps out there.
Very one sided views 1/5
By K Bur
The political bias of this organization is disgusting. What a rag. The same left leaning insight on every story gets old real fast. Even my liberal out of state friends can only say “Wow” and shake their heads when reading the Az Republic while visiting.
It’s a shame the metro area of Phoenix does not have a print media that just reports the unbiased facts and lets the consumer decide. The Arizona Republic is a perfect example of why the media in this country is not taken seriously.
Hometown Source 4/5
By Meiji's Dad
AZ Central-excellent source of Valley wide news without a subscription fee
Enjoy & share periodic AZ Historical articles & photos that can be share
Keep up the good reporting
What happened to Business section 3/5
By Noah Horowitz
Lately this app is working better. But the Business section now almost never has any new articles or ones not also in other sections. What happened to Business coverage?
Need a subscription 1/5
All of a sudden I can’t read any articles unless I pay for the $8.99 subscription...no thanks! I’ll get me news from other sources
Concise, local coverage 5/5
Love this app to get a quick roundup of what’s happening around the Valley on those days when I don’t have time to watch the news
Where are today’s headlines that are on the front page of the printed newspaper? 2/5
Bad design. In fact it’s terrible.
Arizona’s best 5/5
By darth benava
Old news - don’t bother 1/5
There’s lots of news out there, but this app is really good at OLD NEWS and hardly updating anything for weekend news. I laugh that they want people to subscribe.
Why buy ads 2/5
I opted to get the access when it was on deal but most annoying experience because even if paying you have perpetual ads popping up you have to scroll through. I won’t buy again. I’ll find my news on other aps.
Youre a news app! I get it, we all need to make money, but the place I work, gets your publications. The app is a convenience, so for you to say “youve seen too many stories and need to subscribe” is crap! Ill just go online somewhere else and read the same news. Thanks, but deleting!
Great for Leftists 1/5
By Brad McNeal
The one & only conservative columnist is a NeverTrumper. The relentless global warming advocacy; the series on The Wall, is just too much. This state and city is not 99% leftist, but this outfit is. The editorial slant and left slant of every writer from Karina Bland to Bill Goodykoonz, Ed Montini to Laurie Roberts; it’s relentlessly leftist. I give up, my subscription is now terminated. I also add that the app has an indecipherable method in how it prioritizes its stories. Breaking news is rarely listed first. Very amateurish.
Good app for headlines. 4/5
Not bad overall. Need to open up more content.
Good info 5/5
It's pretty good! Not as nicely laid out as their website but you can track down most of the info you are looking for!
Worst App Ever 1/5
Went from free local news to charging a subscription fee. Deleted the app and hope the advertisers are happy that they have one less person to view the ad!
Useful app 5/5
Gives me the important news I need. Much improved over a year or so ago.
By Uj sp
I like it. More information story less politics.
Keeping Up 5/5
Azcentral allows me to keep up with the news. I live out in the country and don't get a newspaper like I used to. With this app I can keep up with news in my state and beyond.
Best source for AZ news. 5/5
By Mark Arndt
Read this every day and happy it's available.
AzCentral app Connects 5/5
Easy to navigate & read. As a long-time subscriber to the Arizona Republic, I look forward to checking out headlines & breaking news on my cell.
Love the way it is organized. Easy to peruse and find interesting reads. Lots of variety which is what I look for.
Subscription Fee???? 1/5
Only 100 free articles per month??
There are other options for local news.
Nickel and diming folks any possible way 1/5
By Az golf
So FYI, if you decide to upgrade to the latest version, you now get a 100 article limit a month that very conveniently pops up after clicking on an article reminding you how many you have read and trying to get you to subscribe. Might I recommend any of the other FREE unlimited news sources here in Phoenix.
Az Central 5/5
Easy to use
By Neck Row
Garbage content. Example: Movie review for the trolls movie misspells character names and suggests it's promoting drug use. Weird and not even amusing.
Not worth the space it takes up in your hard drive.
Loud music in video ad 1/5
I am disappointed with the latest update of this app. I was startled when loud music started playing in an ad while I was reading an article. If this doesn't get fixed in the next app update, then I will uninstall.
AZ News while traveling 5/5
Excellent product to keep informed while on the road
Not iPad compatible 1/5
No meaningful apparent improvement in this latest release and is still showing only Dining news from December 2016. I'm considering canceling my subscription.
Good Experience 4/5
The app works well.
Although I read the paper to keep up locally with what's happening, the paper has become biased. Instead of just reporting the news, it tends to lean toward a more liberal socialist view. I love Phoenix, I love to keep up with what's going on, but I just want straight news and to decide for myself the political outcome thoughts.
Excellent easy to find what you want 5/5
Great app. News succinct and quick. To the point coverage and on target.
Arizona news 5/5
I love all the news azcentral has. Not only Arizona but the rest of the nation. Very informative app.
Keeping up to date is easy 4/5
Whether traveling or in town I can count on Azcentral app to keep me aware on the latest news
Great app 5/5
By NM Sleeper
Great local news. 4/5
The daily roundup to prepare your day is great.
Works most of time 4/5
By c6 4me
App works most of time. It's getting better sometimes slow in loading
Where's the news? 1/5
This paper once covered topics on local and national news in the app. Now you look at local hype and promotional events unless the national stories feeds "important" stories that will run everyone to read.(Like mass shootings, etc.). Otherwise, you will see before and after pictures..
By SunDevil for Life
Grew up in Phoenix but no longer live there. Great for keeping informed about local activities and sports teams!
Missing articles 2/5
By Beach my
Same comment as May review. Missing articles on my iPad, but problem does not appear on my iPhone. Problem is on "Top Stories" page.
Great app. Love receiving current event notifications
Not loading all top stories 1/5
I'm having the same issue as others with the app not loading fully. I take this to mean that they are throttling our ability to read even just the Top Stories. Guess this is goodbye Azcentral. I'll get my Arizona news someplace else.
Lower 2/3 articles missing 1/5
Starting a couple weeks ago the bottom 2/3 of the articles are not visible. Just a blank square where each article should be. The articles on the top third of the page are fine, but when you scroll down they are blank. I have deleted and reloaded but it still has the same issue.
Fix Needed 1/5
The app currently only displays articles on the first screen, scroll down and it's ALL blank.
AZCentral is awesome 5/5
Great app for up to date info
Doesn't work 1/5
The AZ Central Top Stories page has a few stories, but the rest of the page is blank. Doesn't really matter because most of the stories are days old. Terrible app.
Living in cali 5/5
Great way to stay in touch with good old Arizona.
What happened? 2/5
By Cherrybud 1
For two years I liked reading the top stories on my iPad..the section available without subscription. But recently most of the items refuse to download. Strange. Parent company's other app USA Today feeds perfectly. Pity. I did enjoy the local coverage the Republic offered - but with so many alternatives available deleting the now worthless app isn't that big a heartbreaker.
Thanks enjoy it daily. Especially when we are on our summer trips! 5/5
