The Philadelphia Inquirer app reviews

  • Very good app fast clean loads fast 5/5

    By PhillyBlaster
    I’ve read the print version of the Inq since I was a kid. The shift to electronic was tough and the early versions were slow. This app is fast clean timely etc Access to all key areas is easy and quick
  • Content 3/5

    By San Frotastica
    I feel like the content stays up on the site too long. It could be updated more
  • Keeping up with sports in my hometown 5/5

    By Dab1941
    Great t
  • Fine journalism; horrible app 1/5

    By VanAcre
    The functionality and user interface for a news app are not complicated or mysterious. But this app is terrible to use: basic navigation is awkward, standard iOS interactions aren’t used consistently, scrolling is jerky, typography is horrendous, and article copy sometimes doesn’t even load. The Inqui is still the go-to Philadelphia news source, but this app is an embarrassment.
  • Useful for local news 5/5

    By KW2358
    Use this app everyday to get local news
  • Philly.com 1/5

    By Joe The Fighter
    I liked the old format
  • News 4/5

    By emcjj
    Be more current.
  • Ok, but needs some work 2/5

    By scouter128
    1) Why are Inquirer links to another Inquirer article jumping out to a browser? This is frustrating and would be good to fix. 2) I appreciate that many images within an article can be zoomed. It would be nice to do the same for the headline image at the top of the article, which doesn’t seem to be able to be zoomed 3) Support dark mode, where the background of all pages could be dark 4) Configurability for articles I want to see versus not; for example I may not be interested in row after row of high school sports results.
  • App crashes at end of each article when iPhone is in airplane mode 3/5

    By mc32echo
    Like using the app, especially when traveling. The app crashes at the end of each article when my iPhone is in airplane mode.
  • Inquirer newspaper 5/5

    By Chris, May 10, 2014
    I can not express how happy I am that the paper is on line. They cover very succinctly the sports stories I am interested in. I try not to miss their stories. They are clear and concise, very readable, thank you. Frank
  • Great content, poorly organized 2/5

    By Inkyjourno
    The Inquirer and Daily News are outstanding news organizations, which is why it’s so hard to understand the poor quality of the app and web site. Sports dominates the headlines and the order of the stories. In-depth news is buried and hard to find. Please make your best work more prominent.
  • No Comics! 2/5

    By DJG1041
    We subscribe to the Inky for my wife. I only read the comics. This app doesn’t include the comics section.
  • Longtime subscriber 5/5

    By HughE Dillon
    All the news you need.
  • Latest update freezes on ads 5/5

    By Sscorlt
    Scrolling freezes on every ad...very annoying since I pay for the subscription
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Matt 53
    Just awesome timely news and hard hitting stories always at the touch of my fingers.
  • App freezes everyday 1/5

    By CR 1/5/1985
    Its reaching the point where I am likely going to stop reading the Inquirer. Super frustrating that every article freezes and the app continually crashes. Are you even looking at logs or doing any QA on the app?
  • Sluggish UI 5/5

    By bill_langdon721
    I love that the Inquirer has created this new slick app. Some stories open sluggishly on my phone and the app has crashed, but I love the app.
  • Can’t believe this is free 5/5

    By Delco Steve
    So much better than national news. And it’s free, which is crazy.
  • An Inquirer Family 5/5

    By Jack Buttons
    We adore the Inquirer. Whether in Philadelphia or Cape May. Friends, neighbors and family read the Inquirer and discuss content. Part of our lives, as youngsters and seniors, and the our next generations that respect local and informed journalism. Thank you.
  • Philly Inquirer 3/5

    By harry donahue
    I like the new format. Never understood why Philly.com usurped the prestige of Inquirer.com. The op-ed and opinions are overwhelmingly liberal, even for a moderate R! As a right leaning R, I don’t get your bias. It seems counterintuitive to alienate so many customers, especially when print is in such peril. Even your “conservative” writers cross over to the dark side far too regularly. Fox News has introduced more liberal counterparts to their shows. Hannity, whose ultra-conservative rhetoric I sometimes find tiresome, welcomed Comrade DiBlasio on during his prime time show. It would lend credibility to the paper if it added true conservatives to your opinion writings staff.
  • Really enjoying 5/5

    By traderon
    App is easy to use and works very well.
  • Used to be five stars 3/5

    By Sawdust & Noise
    The previous version had an ad at the end of every article. Fine. A newspaper generates its revenue by selling ad space. However, the current version sticks an ad in after every paragraph of every article. If a print paper did that, no one would bother to read it. Worse, content scrolling locks up until the next paragraph's ad loads, even if it is the same ad over and over, which it usually is. As with too many appa, greed has destroyed rhe usability of this app. The only reason I gave three stars is that the editorial content, if you can lad and rea it, is high quality. Unbridled ad spew has cost you at least two readers.
  • Same 1/5

    By elyssa527
    Same stories try something new already. As bad as home delivery which is the worst paper in the universe
  • No Subscription Needed? 5/5

    By Jasphil
    The Philadelphia Inquirer is one of the last, great local papers in America. I am a proud subscriber to the digital edition of their publication and read it daily. I am glad to see this app, which makes the paper easier to navigate and read, but it does not ask me to login like the Inquirer.com website does. Is this app and all of its content free? Why am I paying to subscribe, and subsidize others reading for free when I can cancel and still enjoy the app? I don’t want to see the Inky fail which is why I am a subscriber, but allowing for free riders is also not a sustainable business model.
  • Balance 5/5

    By Jrmktnmj
    I always have appreciated the Inquirer and the writers who work hard researching & writing good articles. My only suggestion would be a more balanced approach to writing about sex abuse scandals which seem to be rampant across many pubic & private organizations, and religious institutions. However, Inquirer only seems to focus on the Catholic Church with front page coverage. Please also write articles on the millions of people the Catholic church assists with life saving care, food & support. Thank you!
  • Traditional Newspaper 1/5

    By SocratesNJ
    Any chance you could put your efforts toward ensuring delivery of the newspaper?
  • Nice app, but could be better 3/5

    By D-town guy
    I log in every day for my local news and find the site very informative. My only complaint is that my page is loaded with local (high school sports) that are of no interest to me.
  • Below Average 2/5

    By Ejaazi
    App will not open many times and even when it does it is slow. Also, there is no option to 'copy' a link in order to share it.
  • Best news app for traveling Philadelphians Updates frequently with important stories well written 5/5

    By Llsvme

  • Poorly done 1/5

    By 12€£¥abc
    It is a shame what has happened to our Philly paper. App is poorly designed Too many ads Hard to navigate. Buy a NYT and see what they do. I will not be subscribing again.
  • No thanks 4/5

    By great eye opener
    To work
  • Best game in town 5/5

    By my dog walker
    By far Philly.com has the only full good reporting of local news.
  • Hometown news 5/5

    By emilynn
    A wonderful reliable source for local and world news, just too much sports news for my taste
  • It’s becoming less meaningful news all take time 4/5

    By Brentheking
    If you want people to read it regularly, put some real news on here other then high school sports.
  • I like the Ap 5/5

    By Phillyjackfarson
    I’m a Philly native living in Northern Virginia and I love to keep up with the news.
  • Crashes and Burns 2/5

    By Gimmeabrake
    Content is good, though somewhat repetitive and gets outdated. Would love to see less content - maybe that would permit faster, more efficient loading and fewer crashes.
  • Issue with iPad Pro 5/5

    By Echo2411
    Loved this app on older iPad but since getting iPad Pro it won’t show the listings bar on the bottom...please fixxxxxx
  • Police officer 5/5

    By 179291
    Very nice
  • Best Early Morning Go To 4/5

    By John Jr's Roommate
    Philly.com gets me up to date every morning. Really good sports coverage with some of the best sports writers anywhere. Great APP!
  • Poor Service 2/5

    By nm267
    I read the on line version when I travel and enjoy staying connected, but the service is really poor in regards to my delivery service. They either don’t care about there customers or don’t have the capabilities to deliver newspapers in the Doylestown area.
  • DPM 5/5

    By Aaa_aaa!
    Love the ease of access. Good range of stories. Go to read every day.
  • Annoying 1/5

    By DAZ in PA
    The search doesn’t work. I can’t find what I’m looking for in the sections that were selected by the developers. When I search for what I want, I get totally unrelated articles. Do you test this at all???
  • Love Philly.com 4/5

    By Richard Senior
    Love Philly.com. Good content, regular rotation of stories, the only negative is some ads cover the content.
  • Awful App 2/5

    By Mfecani
    It amazes me how bad this app is...as other commenters mentioned, you click on a story, and you get a different story...they must have no QA process/team.
  • Linking to wrong place 2/5

    By Jkcoops
    When I click on the story the next article comes up
  • Wrong story 3/5

    By philareader
    Click on a story. Get the one before it. Deleted and reloaded the ap. Still happens.
  • Wrong stories 4/5

    By Yostie324
    When I press on a title, the wrong story comes up.
  • Links are wrong 1/5

    By links wrong
    I would give zero stars if I could because the links to the stories are wrong. Tap on a story supposedly about St Joes prep victory and you get a completely different story.
  • Pop up ads galore 1/5

    By Maz12346
    Start reading an article and you get a pop up in the middle. Talk about intrusive. Better news on channel 3, 6 and 10 news.
