Plays Audio Video Ads unprompted now! 1/5
This app now will start playing advertisements unsolicited. And if in a meeting or event or somewhere else trying to read the paper very subtly, you could get called out with a loud obnoxious advertisement. Not using this app anymore.
Almost great! 5/5
By Joe Chateau
I love everything about this app....except for one strange issue. I can go to any sport and get up-to-date news with one exception. When I click on Lions it’s stuck on the news from Nov. 29th. Tate is saying the Lions have to win the rest to make the playoffs.
I have deleted the app and reinstalled it, but it still sticks on Nov. 29th. How can this be fixed?
Lions portion of this app 1/5
The Lions portion of this app has not changed in 146 days. It’s still talks about Tete taking the Lions can still make the playoffs. It is unbelievable that someone has not fixed this portion of the app. The other sports teams don’t have this problem with their portion of the app.
By Slightly obsessive
The head article on the news page is 89 days old. 'Nuff said.
Poor design 1/5
Why can’t the developers fix the cover photos that appear in each article? The same cover photo appear above each story. This has been a problem for over a year and never addressed. They should write a story out their inept programming skills.
Worst. Paper. Ever. 1/5
How is this horrible paper not bankrupt yet?!?
The disgraced media continues to ridicule our great president, one would think that this leftist news outlet would notice their error but, continuing down into the swamp and still melting down due to hillary klinton losing Big Time.
Start reporting the news correctly, leftist losers !
Great mobile newspaper app! 1/5
By Buddy cat & Smokey
I normally will not read newspapers on line, but the Free Press app is really easy to read and find what section you want. This is the best newspaper app that I have and I definitely will keep reading it!
My complaint I'm now having is that the advice column is terrible - sometimes there aren't any new questions for days - my Oakland Press has new ones daily in Dear Abby....sigh!
Line Dancing Grandma
The advice columns aren't any better....they disappear for days - what happens?.
I just changed the number of review stars to one...why, because again and again columns are disappearing, especially the advice columns!! I will close the app if this doesn’t clear up. This has gone on for days - I have been a Free Press reader for years and really like this app since we go to Florida.
This app is getting worse and worse! Is there a reason why certain sections are not updated daily! I will no longer recommend this app to my snowbird friends from the Detroit area - please do not ask me to rate this app again unless you’ve fixed this problem!
Lose the ads! 2/5
This Ann Curry ad is ruining the app experience, fine I understand something have to keep the lights on...but you need to remove automatic launch/highly sensitive tap. It is very annoying...
Anything new 1/5
The same pictures and stories remain on sport pages for weeks, even months.
Sports are Not Breaking News 3/5
I’ve chosen not to receive notifications for sports, therefore, I do not want to be notified about sports.
U of M Athletics 5/5
By Go Blue in ATLANTA!!!
Coverage is the best!!
As an ex-pat, I check it every day 3/5
Good way to keep up to date on the hometown. Hard to beat the price; it’s truly a “Free” Press.
— Art should track the stories better. Way too much feature art for unrelated stories. And, too often, thumbnail shots don’t open with the stories.
— Not sure why some obscure stories age so long in the home page — sometimes for days.
— The steep reduction in staff shows. A lot is missed, especially in business news.
Mr. Juan O’Neill 5/5
Good to read news from my home town paper.
Looks like the search capability has been hidden, again.
Love my local paper, not a fan of app 2/5
I get a digital subscription of the paper delivered daily. Big fan. However I constantly struggle to find the stories I read in the daily paper within the application so that I can share the articles. Bummer.
By Uh60 driver
Just a bunch of closed minded liberals who think they know what’s right for America writing biased articles with little to no facts. If I could give negative stars I would.
Deleting app 1/5
No comment on the app but I am deleting this app and it’s data and will no longer read the Free Press based on the recent call for the National Baseball Hall of Fame to rescind it’s election of Jack Morris over one rather innocuous comment he made 25+ years ago. This is preposterous.
Expat enjoying the Freep 5/5
By Jim A R
I left my SW Detroit home for the Philly Area in 1974. I miss all of Detroit and revel in the good news and frown when you I read the bad news. My go to source? The on line Free Press. What a great background and full of excellent storylines. Example: the recent Delray story. Tremendous!
Morning Delight! 5/5
By Five Minute Fun Franny
Great way to share news and coffee! Excellent paper!! 👍🏼
Yay for the F P!! 👏. And “Thank You” for each edition! 😀
No search function 2/5
Wish there was a way to search.
Love the Free Press 4/5
And always have. A little liberal for my taste but good paper just the same. Articles could be refreshed quicker. It gets tiring to read the same thing all week long. They always have had the best reporters. Keep up the good work.
I no longer live in the Mitten. I greatly appreciate the Freep app.
App shuts down 3/5
By Detroit Planner
Often, when I am reading an article on my iPhone 6plus, the app shuts down.
Good paper 5/5
By Ann Arbor Resident
New version of app has strange organization. Only cartoons as opinion?
Usually loads quickly and works well 4/5
And they have real writers and reporters.
Stupid app! 1/5
Designed by idiots!
Used to be a great app 1/5
I used to love this app but now it is awful. It has had the same couple of stories on the page for days. There are at least 2 to 3 different articles about each sports teams and no real news. Like I said, I used to love this app but reading stale news isn't worth it to me
Great app!!! 5/5
By Captain MJ
Easy to use. Comprehensive. Be sure to check the Settings to customize your experience.
I Love "The Freep!" 5/5
Have lived out of state for 25-years but I REALLY miss my Michigan. The Freep keeps me in touch with what is happening in the Mit and with my sports teams. Still love reading Mitch Albom's article and glad he stayed with Detroit despite his fame. Keep up the good work and thank you for keeping me part of the D!
The app keeps shutting down. Using a 6 plus. Is my device not supported anymore? Wish it worked like it used to, i did enjoy it when it worked.
App links are broken 1/5
Downloaded the app so I could track some runners running the Detroit Marathon, and the links are broken so I can't track any runners. Worthless app!
This app is impossible to navigate. Terrible set-up
No search? 3/5
I don't see any way to search for stories. Ugh
Qk review 5/5
Before I retired, I loved to read Detroit Free Press when available & listen to WJR in my car on the road. You guys do a great job. Pls keep it that way. Joe M.
Love the sports coverage. I live out of state and the coverage keeps me connected to high school action, Sparty, the mac, lions, tigers, pistons, wings and the outdoors. Love the Freep!
Good regional news 5/5
I rely on Freep for my Detroit sports and Michigan news.
Great app great content 5/5
By Pinball Izzy
Read it every day! Five stars. Real news. No fake news here.
Love the updates and coverage of local sports.
Always loved the Freep 5/5
Even when I was at school on the other side of the state I would try to grab a copy on my way to class (they had them free on campus along with USA Today)
Top notch 5/5
Look at it daily
Excellent newspaper app 4/5
A very good newspaper app....love it
Crashes all the time 1/5
Used to love this app but literally crashes all the time since update. Is there any testing done?
Freep is the BEST! 5/5
I've read this paper since I was a kid--the app is great and very user friendly 👍🏻
Constantly crashing 1/5
I use a lot of apps and I’ve never come across one that crashes as much as this. So annoying!
Keeps Me Updated Throughout The Day 5/5
The app is great. It informs you of what is happening in the world as the article is written. You can depend on the Free Press for a complete and fair story.
Very Useful for Daily News 5/5
I use this app daily for news, both local and national. The only wish is the ability to access specialized content for digital subscription
Decent App Terrible reporting 1/5
Love it 5/5
I love the app and I use it even more now that my guy, Nick Baumgardner is reporting for the Free Press
