I like it
Great Way to Keep Up on the News! 5/5
The app is easy to configure with the topics you want to know about. It sends instant notifications when a new story is uploaded so You can always have the latest news at your fingertips.
Free Press 4/5
Not a great fan of e-news, but the Free Press e-news is excellent
Love the paper, hate the app 1/5
By Grape Julius
The app used to be fine. But the last two updates have been absolutely horrible—the loading time is so slow for stories and headlines to appear that I’m starting to look for other news sources. I’ve tried it on multiple internet connections, so I know that the problem isn’t on my end. Please fix this! I will revise my review if and when the loading times return to normal.
Reduce political ads 1/5
Support Michigan news 5/5
Great app, excellent coverage of the news
Love the app, hate the update 5/5
Thoroughly enjoy using the app and having access to great content. However since the last update I’ve been experiencing an issue. If I’m in the middle of an article and my phone lock screen comes on (e.g. if I don’t touch the screen for a certain amount of time), when I swipe back in the article automatically returns to the beginning/top of the page. Very annoying for longer articles having to go back through and find my place. Please fix!
Great source 5/5
By USN Snipe
Great source for Michigan and National News!
Reliable Michigan News Source 5/5
By East Lansing Tom
These getting reliable news is ever more important. I turn to the Detroit Free Press for news reports that I can trust.
Great mobile newspaper app! 5/5
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!
Now I can’t even read the regular sections! There’s a title, but when I click on it, there’s a blank screen with black photo squares. This is a horrible app and I’m going! to need to cancel it! This is happening again - HELP!
Interesting coverage of the Wolverines. Thank you!
Great Local Read 5/5
By James from Detroit
The articles are focused on local news. Great way to stay current.
Pictures out of sync with copy!!! 2/5
I don't know if it is a mindless auto fill problem but it seems that when I click on specific article it first shows a completely unrelated photo to the copy. Check todays story about Lions QB buying a house in Georgia. The first thing you see is a photo of a Red Wings hockey player completely unrelated to the story I want. And this happened thought the app. Someone is not vetting layout! It needs to be fixed.
Isn't working with iOS 10.3 3/5
By Kountry Chik
Darn! Really like this app but most recent update doesn't work with my iPhone iOS 10.3. Sad...
I first read the Free Press in 1978-9
I was working in Detroit as a car hauler.
Cadillacs to the east coast.
Couldn’t have breakfast w/out that
It’s still with me today.
Enjoy daily 5/5
Have been reading the Freep for some time and will continue to do so. Nice app.
Too much sports 3/5
The app gives little of the news and way way way too much sports. And then it repeats the sports. Enough. Already. I’ve written to the site and never heard that they had even received my feedback.
Great sports reporting 5/5
I am a fan of all the major sports teams in Detroit, as well as University of Michigan sports. The Freep offers awesome coverage!
I read every day. I am a paid subscriber. 5/5
We cannot get delivery anymore where we live. I have read the freep many years.

Best coverage of all Michigan sports 5/5
By Wisconsin Turtle
Red Wings, Tigers, Lions, or Pistons you can get what going on first before all the others.
Great App to keep up with Detroit and the surrounding communities.

Freep whenever 5/5
By Jim Goods

Me again 5/5
By Dr. Me Again

I like it 5/5
By Madame Brittniee

Not loading 1/5
Data not loading on opening app
Keeps crashing 1/5
Not sure what is wrong but the app keeps crashing and giving an error ....
Awful app! 5/5
By jamo kid
Much news available, app is terrible. Will go with the Detroit News
Not worth paying for!
Stopped working 1/5
This app no longer functions. The top stories will not load, citing an error. Can use other parts of the app. Used to be a lot less ads, but alas, nothing lasts forever.
Does not work 1/5
For the last few days it gets a loading error and only shows the remove ads sign up screen. Very disappointing!
Does not work, opens with no Detroit free press, only add one 1/5
By Purdue boiler
App Won’t Open 1/5
I have enjoyed this app for several years, but now, in the last few day it won’t open! It appears that the FP peeps (AKA Gannett) me to opt for an ad free subscription before I can open the app! Don’t like being coerced!
The app no longer loads 1/5
The app used to work great, but now it just says loading error. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it, but it still says the same thing.
App will not load half the time 1/5
The Detroit Free Press application will not load more than half the time. No matter how many times I try.
Staying in touch 5/5
Great way to keep on thing going on in and around Detroit
By Harley Joe63
Excellent source of information
Used to be a great app 1/5
I used to love this app but now it is awful. The new layout makes hard to read and even the hint of touching it redirects you to an advertiser. Deleting it because it is too frustrating to use.
Detroit Free Press 5/5
By Bob Lerash
App is awesome, gives me a chance to catch up all the way in Denver!
Excellent news coverage 5/5
By cheesy mary
I trust this platform for news and I really enjoy the op eds.
Where’s newspaper format? 1/5
The app is no longer showing up in a newspaper format. Instead I’m getting a series of tiles that don’t appear to be organized by section. Terrible.
Add free is a myth 2/5
I did the trial add free app and I still see adds. Hopefully he developer sees this and will do something about it.
Great Way to Stay On Top 5/5
App works great. The Detroit Free Press is where I get all my local news. Great reporting. I'm probably one of the few that has both the app and has the paper delivered too. Sometimes it's just easier to see the whole paper by having it in your hands.
