Requires subscription to read stories. 1/5
I used to enjoy reading AZ Central. But, now it requires a subscription to read stories. Not a great app.
Scrolling is very disjointed since the last update 2/5
Scrolling in the text window is very halting and especially bad at the ads. The texts jumps up and back down. This makes it almost useless
Decent but 3/5
By Noah Horowitz
App no longer allows capability to print up an article. Get tired of looking at small cellphone screen or sometimes want hardcopy. Used to be able to do this.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
The repugnant now feels they can charge when you use to get 100 stories per month free. Goodbye!
Since you have decided to place restrictions on the stories two paragraphs in, you’re app is being deleted from my phone.
A Little balance 1/5
.....would be nice. The Az Republic is a joke since being taken over by USA Today. Constant Anti-Trump,Anti-GOP,Anti-Conservative. Montini,Goody-pants and Linda (La Raza) Valdez are radical Conservative haters and should be avoided by anyone seeking commentary not tinged by hate for anyone who doesn’t subscribe to there radical worldview. Such sad people. Why do I subscribe? To follow my sports teams.( Although Greg Moore wallows in the same swamp as those mentioned above). And if you ignore their subscription pleas long enough they’ll pretty much offer it to you free. So desperate! Ha,ha! MAGA!
Nice Try 4/5
By belligerent always
Thanks for trying to even the playing field politically, but you’ve got some real Trump hating writers. That’s why I don’t read The Republic. Sticking up for McCain & Flake only makes it worse. Nice local news coverage, sports, & food reviews.
AZ Republic on life support ... 1/5
The Republic is dying and is a victim of mediocrity and unenthusiastic reporting. The newspaper watched while Arpaio terrorized LATINOS for 24 years. There were no Pulitzer’s for courageous writing during that time. Instead, Phoenix burned while the Republic reporters schmoozed with Arpaio.
Trash bias rag 1/5
By MU Fiji
Not worth lighting a fire with.
ONE SIDE DOES NOT FIT ALL... 1/5
I am so sick of EJ, Benson and the like...I cannot read a publication that delivers opinions over the news...If you want to be an Opinion Publication at least endeavor to be balanced...Otherwise, change your name to “Arizona Opinion"...!
By cannot send
Awful. Cannot suspend delivery online. Very amateurish.
An absolute cesspool of ads. 1/5
Being a paid subscriber doesn’t help. Complete garbage.
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
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
