Freep over the years 5/5
Growing up in Detroit, the Free Press was part of our family through the 50s an 60s. Then marriage and the 70, 80 an 90s living in Plymouth part of our life, then a job change to Wisconsin and could only get it when we were at our camp on Lake Superior. Finally the Freep app, I’m now seventy and enjoying the Free Press everyday. Well Done!!!!
Sports Reporting 1/5
Sports reporting features University of Michigan much more than Michigan State. I, like many of my friends, are U of M AND MSU followers. However, very few sports articles, in comparison, are written about MSU sports. FREEP sports must do better.
Tha D to SC 5/5
Originally from Detroit but I still like to know what’s going on in my city! This app is cool!
Full screen video ads load as you scroll 2/5
The new ads that pop up to auto play video as you scroll are disruptive and terrible. It’s fine to show ads to pay for the app, but these are jarring and confusing when they take over your whole screen as you scroll through the headlines. This kind of innovation stinks and only serves to make me really dislike whatever you are advertising. Don’t load a full screen video of any kind, especially an ad, without me clicking on it to ask you to.

One sided reporting 1/5
One sided reporting. One sided political views in every political news piece. Give me facts, not just one sided facts.
No way to increase text size.
Too much sports coverage 2/5
More sports stories than top news
Sports and State news 5/5
Enjoy haveing the Freep on line.
Too many sports stories on main feed 2/5
22 of 32 are sports, why have a sports section?
G Don 5/5
Great free app
Video of Detroit 5/5
There is no news Service that gives you a better feel of Detroit than the Free Press.

Detroit Free Press 5/5
An excellent newspaper!
Always a good read 5/5
Good information in the morning as I wake and in the evening be for I retire.
Mornings wouldn’t be the same without my Free Press! 5/5
My morning is not complete until I read my online Detroit Free Press! I would never sift through an actual newspaper, just not a reality any longer. Thank you for it!
Free press app 1/5
I pay $12 a month for content that I could get from so many other sources. Why doesn’t the online version include all the stories from the print edition?? So little actual local news (other than sports). Very disappointing.
Detroit Free App Is Awesome 5/5
By Friend of the Free Press
The Detroit Free Press app is awesome and very easy to use. The frequent updates to news stories is a real treat.
Why do you still display the Super Bowl score? 2/5
Every day for two months you have displayed the Super Bowl score along with current stories. If the Lions had won, I would understand...

Not worth using.
By Yoop now
Read Freep in print for 47 years while downstate. Get my Freep " fix" online now. Great!
Love Motown news everyday 5/5
The Freep is an institution!
Too liberal and far left 1/5
By Go Blue 70
Unfortunately, the Free Press has joined the other far-left news media in “President Bashing”, a sad state of affairs for a once respected paper!
INTERNET FREEP 5/5
By John MSU 53 RRHS 49
Good way to keep track of my old home town, automotive news and best of all MSU sports coverage. John. MSU 53 , RRHS 49
Love the Freep!
Great for sports 5/5
By Ken D K
Read it every day
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.
When it works it can't be beat 4/5
By Snow guy
The free press is The NY Times of the Midwest when the app is working. If the programmer gets its act together it cannot be beat.
By Bingo fan 69
We can't we open any articles on either of our IOS 10 devices. Been a problem for three days now. Just tried factory reload on this device and it didn't help
Sports in the D! 4/5
By Doey 888
I check 3 things on my phone each morning. The Freep is always first and the most fun! The postings are timely and most stories load quickly.
App Stopped Working 1/5
I used to really appreciate being able to read the local news on the Freep App, but the app has stopped responding on the last few weeks. Once in the app, you are unable to click on more than one article to read. Soooo frustrating. I did contact customer service but have yet to receive a reply. I am loath to delete the app, but it is useless at the moment.
Latest update doesn't work 1/5
I updated the app and it no longer works. Deleted and installed again. Same issue.
Update version not working 1/5
The latest update rendered this app worthless for my iPad. I am running 10.3. But now when I open the app and to use an article, it doesn't open. Are you supporting my version? I guess I will find a new news app
Update upset! 4/5
The latest update on Nov. 26 will not work properly on my IPad. The articles will not open!
This update should be updated ASAP!
Font size adjustment sorely missing. 3/5
Otherwise eight fairly typical NewsHour.
Is this a sports app? What happened to the news? 2/5
By Mr bigglesworth89124
Wayyyyyy too many sports stories. Literally maybe 4/5 articles are sports related. I want news. Not sports entertainment. And I had to turn off notifications because during any playoffs season, I was getting notifications before each game started, at least 1 during the game, and another after. Why???! I DIDNT DOWNLOAD THIS FOR SPORTS NEWS!! deleted.
Ad-Free does not work 2/5
I like the app and wanted to support the paper, so I purchased the ad-free subscription.
However, it does not seem to do anything. All the ads are still embedded.
Poor research. Not ALL the facts.
