Keeps shutting down 1/5
App is choppy, slow, full of ads, and keeps shutting down. The previous version was way better.
Noisy ads 2/5
App recently added a noisy ad containing very loud slot machine type noises. Only way to turn it off is to close the app. Makes using the app difficult when reading in quiet situations (waiting rooms, bedrooms, etc.)
Too little for too much 1/5
By Waveland Dosey
Print PDF keeps crashing. Scroll down to read and pages turn black.
Default set to print edition and it always opens up in Live view.
Always asking me to log in. Why should an app constantly request that you log in at least 3 times while you try to read the newspaper?
And why does digital cost so much when you don't have to print or deliver?
I think it is sad that the app advertises that this is a free app (which it was until 11/14) and now they want us to pay for something advertised as free. That is clearly false advertising. Seniors and disabled people live on a very limited income and do not have the extra money to pay for something advertised as free which is their way to get a lot of the news.
Deleting this app! 1/5
I have enjoyed reading an occasional article on this app over the past few years. I grew up on the coast, and it was nice to keep up a bit. However, tonight after I opened the app every article I clicked on had a pop up window asking me to "log in." Thanks a lot Sun Herald. I've deleted the app.

What has happened? I've had this app for ages-well over a year-and now suddenly it's asking me to pay for it? Not going to happen!
Won't be paying for this anymore 1/5
I still pay for this newspaper. Home delivery, electronic version and mobile apps. For local news, you know? Except when I click on the local news tab, my so called hometown paper is as likely to show me the latest news about Kim Kardashian or Angelina Jolie as it is anything happening in my home town, or my state, or any adjacent states, or even the entire southeastern U.S. I was proud when this paper won a post-Katrina Pulitzer. Didn't know that would be its grand finale.
Good news app 5/5
Only reliable news source in South Mississippi
No search function 2/5
I usually hear about a story I want to read. I need the search to find it.
Pop ups. 1/5
Marketing gimmicks. I won a free iPad Air. Thanks Sun Herald. I'll stay with WLOX app.
Pleasantly surprised 4/5
This app is great to have! It's like having the local news in my pocket. Don't get me wrong, FB and Twitter are probably better for up to the minute reports but I really enjoy this app.
It's a keeper! Keep up the good work Sun Herald and keep improving the app! 👍
Not working 1/5
This app will not load on my iPhone 6S Plus. I removed it and reloaded but with no luck.
Two thumbs down 👎🏻👎🏻 1/5
Information is usually inaccurate. Not to mention they are Anti-police!
By Gabe Russell
Well laid out and keeps the news flowing.
Never has been user friendly 4/5

Other users summed it up
Excellent App 5/5
Very well laid out and articles are always up-to-date.
My new favorite app for keeping up with what's going on in South Mississippi.
* Since the last update to this app it will no longer open on my iPod 5 running ios 7.1.2
* Newest update (11-6-14) fixed the instant crash issue. Everything is working fine and looks great.
App Does NOT work! 1/5
This App is worthless. It will not open at all. I called The Sun Herald to report this but they have not fixed it. Poor customer service.
Please update your app 1/5
The app does not open at all since I downloaded ios8.
News flash 1/5
Your app is crap. Doesn't open
Will not open 1/5
By Rue Toulouse
App keeps shutting down. Will not open at all. Started happening after the update to iOS 8. Need bug fix, and update.
Broke Down 1/5
App will not even open, seems like this happened after "upgrade". Worthless.
I like the news but no sound went get a text!!!
By Fuzzy Bee
App seldom works, when it does open it wont let you log in. Hasnt worked for two weeks now, called sunherald twice already but no joy
Sun Herald App 1/5
App shuts down every time I try to use it.
Almost There 3/5
By Sonnet Sequence
Would like to see Weather, Comics, Horoscope. Or perhaps these are there and I just haven't figured out how to access them. Any wave off the coast of Africa needs to be mentioned--at least here on the Gulf Coast. SH App is a good start but needs some refinement.
By Ed 56
Did not work very well before, it even worse now. So yourself a favor and delete this rag.
Won't work now 1/5
It worked last time I used it a couple months back. When I try opening the app now, it tells me I must upgrade to the latest version at the App Store. It provides a button for this. I click into the App Store but there is no upgrade/update available. So I've deleted the app entirely.
Not working 2/5
Downloaded the most recent version of your app one week ago. Very informative. But now it won't let me open it asking me to download the most recent version before I can continue. There is no more recent version available then the one I have. Not impressed!!
What's the purpose of these updates if a viewer has to also subscribe via username/email etc?... Deleting app
Like the App 5/5
By Ed Curley
Covers all the pertinent things happening or that have happened on the coast.
Horrible, horrible,horrible. Hardly works and now the want you to create an account so they can charge you! Booooo!
Sun Hearld 2/5
Only works half the time.
Won't even let me give my review right now. I've tried 4 times !
Not good 1/5
When you pull it up you never know if you will be able to see any of the content or not. Mostly not!
Missing functions 2/5
By Leenie 123
There is no link for obituaries
Please address this!
Can't open the Obituary page!!!
Missing link 3/5
Please return the link to the obituaries.
Screen width too wide 1/5
By Just wanna read it
On opening app, the screen width auto adjust forces the font to exceed the width of the screen, forcing each line to be read by swiping back and forth. Changing font maintains the same screen width with just different fonts.
Money Hungry? 1/5
I already pay for the paper, I'm not paying for the app too.
Disappointed, not paying for this service. WLOX app is better and still free!!
You want me to pay to use the worst news app on my phone? WLOX has a free app that bliss this out of the water.
Never was great in the first place. 1/5
Now you want to charge? WLOX has a free app for those wanting free Gulf Coast news.
Updated for profit 1/5
I've been waiting for a year to see an iPad version of this app, no luck. Now it's been updated, not to include iPad support but just to require a paid subscription. As with the printed version of the paper it's just not worth the money you want.
Delete worthy. 1/5
By Sofia Jax It up
Loved the app because as a 22 year old single mother constantly on the go I was able to keep up with a few local and current events with ease. Now you want to charge me for it when it's not even comparable to the website? And the website is mediocre to begin with so that's really not saying much about your app. So pretty much you're charging me for bare minimal junk? No thanks.
Jus reinstall it,I hv it back so far😁
It was free, Now they charge, waste of time.!!!!!
Black hole sun herald!!!!! 1/5
By Mr.MASTERS 666
Why???????😩this is a no star app. 😩
Really Sun Herald?!? 1/5
I used the Sun Herald app EVERY day. But now they are charging? There are too many other news apps out there that are free. Good Bye!
Goodbye SunHerald 2/5
Hoped this was some mistake that Sun Herald would correct They don't get it. I can get my news from lots of sources. This was only one. I cancelled print subscription a year ago. Now I am deleting the app rather than take out a new subscription.
It was an easy way to look at sun herald without having to access it in safari. Now you want me to pay for it? That is laughable.
Lackluster App I Have to Pay For 1/5
Being a South MS native who now lives in New England, I was very excited to have the app. Yes, it's mediocre and outdated most days, but it was an easy way to keep current on all the local news that I still care about.
I was willing to tolerate the lack of attention the app got before, but now you're asking me to pay for it. I'm not subscribing for a full-fledged print newspaper just to have access to a neglected app that only carries a tiny fraction of the news.
Hopefully you'll get with the digital age soon and realize that you can't charge full price for a large coffee and only give us a teaspoon-full. For now, you've been deleted. I'll get my news from the WLOX app.
