Terrible app 1/5
This app is the reason newspapers are going out of business. It is poorly organized and has way too much old news on it. Half the time it doesn’t have the local high school scores or the write ups that are in the paper. Of all the news apps I use this has to be the worst
This is what Not to do on a newspaper website 1/5
By Vermont skidog
Old articles, no way to write a letter to the editor and none of the side info like the crossword, comics, bridge hand, etc. and it's not the easiest to use.
I enjoy reading the Free Press. 5/5
I want to thank the Editors, writers, photographers, and all, for a great job. I enjoy the FREEPS, on the I-Phone. I even enjoy the videos.
Thank you, one & all!

Love the BFP, Love the App 5/5
I love the BFP and probably read it every day. As UVM student who moved here about 2 years ago, it's been a really great way to get a sense of place and understand what all is going on. To the BFP, keep up the great work, and thank you :)

Reliable, Dependable, and Verifiable.
Keeping It Real 5/5
By Keep It Short
Just wrote a heartfelt review, tapped to send it and was told, 'nickname already taken,' and I lost my work. Spent 15 minutes on that. Maybe fix that?
Otherwise I love BTV, BFP, this app, Champlain College, and Panera on Church St.
Great app 5/5
I love the BFP app. Use it everyday to stay up with local news.
App works well, editors need to work harder 3/5
The BFP app works just fine but the editors are doing a pretty poor job of checking the work. I am amazed at how many mistakes there are in not just story text but headlines as well. Not clear how they can miss so much.
Great way to keep up from afar 5/5
The Free Press app is fantastic and an excellent way to keep up on Vermont news and happenings from afar.
Quality, easy design 5/5

This is one of my favorite apps!
Excellent App!! 5/5
Solid without failure time and time again. Thanks!!
Refreshing new app 5/5
By Mom in vt
Once I deleted the old one, and tapped on the new one, the app works just fine. I like the layout, but I miss the menu to find other sections, like sports or obituaries. Maybe it is there and I just have not found it yet.
Message to download new version 3/5
By Lou in Vermont
I downloaded the new version to my ipad but everytime I open the app, I get a message to download the new version. When I hit OK, it brings me to the app store where I can open the app. Nuisance!
The rest of the functions seem OK
Better layout 4/5
Thanks for your efforts!
Great news' source 5/5
BFP app is a great source of local and national news. All in one place. You can easily learn about all current events happening in the neighborhood as well as stay updated on the top US stories.
Great local stuff 5/5
I read the Free Press a few times a week, usually from the US Virgin Islands. It has all the local news I need from my home town.
Standard news app...better then print 4/5
This App works as advertised. Better then thumbing through the print version z
Great App 4/5
A great way to keep up with all the news in Vermont.
App okay, content: not so much 2/5
This app works fairly well as a newsreader, though it would be nice to be able to save articles as you can in the NYT website.
However, Gannett should be embarrassed by the content. Articles are still featured days after they appear -- or weeks. High school graduation articles were prominent through much of July, and some articles are listed as recent news when they're over a month old.
I would hope that a professional news organization could do better than this, but apparently not.
Great app 5/5
Easy to navigate.
Loads fast and gets you all VT news quickly.
Good but 12 dollars a month 1/5
By Jackie runs
Have to subscribe after looking through a few articles.
Lauren Read is awesome.
Digging the better video displays, especially the full-screen mode. Pretty darn nice.
Best App in Vermont 5/5
By PT in VT
It you are looking for breaking news and in-depth reporting from the Burlington, Vermont area, this is by far the best app available. Nobody else in the state offers anywhere near the amount of news coverage the Burlington Free Press provides, so this is one app definitely worth having if you care about Vermont news. It also has some cool photo galleries and videos.
No iPad App??? 1/5
How could you possibly promote this newspaper as completely digital when you don't even have an iPad app...???
Where's the box scores? 1/5
Paying $12 a month for "full access" and I can't even see box scores for last night's baseball games on iPhone. On iPad, can't even see national sports scores. Go back to the drawing board!
Needs some help 2/5
By James VT
Can't get it to work with digital access login created on-line. Help to deal with problem doesn't seem to be available. Link on Review option takes you to BFP home page, not support.
Lame app 2/5
Put it on my iPad (3) and it won't even rotate into landscape mode. It is a lame iPhone app at best. The photo and video resolution is poor as well.
