Great app 5/5
By CCYC Serenity
This is perfect for getting updates and essential everyday news.
Please upgrade- use the dividends your not paying
This used to be a good way for me to keep up on local news when I travel but the past month it crashes on me before I can open a single article. Please fix this!
Keeps changing to split screen and I can’ change it back.
Buggy beyond belief 1/5
I activated the Tennessean widget on my iPhone as soon as it was offered. It NEVER opens. The widget always says “Unable to Load.” When I go to the Tennessean app, it takes forever to load, and when it finally does and I click on a story, the app crashes. This is not a situation caused by increase demand on broadband or the app because of Covid-19. This has been going on since the widget and app were offered, long before anyone had ever heard of Covid-19. Also, I have no trouble with any other widgets or apps, so everyone else seems to be doing fine. I stopped my subscription to the Tennessean because there are few new stories every day, only a repeat of old stories with maybe one line of new information, then the old story is repeated as if it was new information. That is an old, well-known trick in the industry. As a result, I find the Tennessean widget, the Tennessean app and the Tennessean, itself, to be utterly worthless. It’s a shame, too, because I subscribed to the Tennessean to support local journalism, which I know to be vital to our society. Perhaps, only when people like me start leaving will the Tennessean start operating the way it is supposed to. When I was a newspaper reporter, we were required to submit two new stories every day. If we submitted a repeat of a story we had already written with only a couple of new sentences at the top, we would have been fired. I am certain that the Tennessean could offer numerous viable excuses for why it is not able to live up to the journalistic standards that were established long ago. However, it is their responsibility to find solutions to overcome those obstacles. Papers of record have always had obstacles to overcome that were unique to their era. You just do it. Just look at all these reviews that basically say the same thing.
Keep resigning in 2/5
I love the content but hate that I have to keep resigning all the time. It make accessing stories that I am alerted to very frustrating.
Great Resource 5/5
This is great up to minute resource for all things Tennessee.
Good news 5/5
By still kicking!
Thanks for keeping us up to date!
Great News Source 4/5
Love the Tennessean for the local reporting and great journalism. I think the app gives too many notifications, but the content is very good.
App no longer works 1/5
This app will no longer open. I pay for a subscription and it includes online access. If you don’t fix the app then you should reduce the subscription price.
Platform is faulty 3/5
The Tennessean’s content is decent. The platform seems out of date. Images don’t load properly, the display is awkward, and the navigation is not intuitive. Readers deserve better.
This has to be the most poorly maintained site I have ever used. Always says “no internet connection” even when every other site works. Takes forever to load.
Where are the comics? 1/5
By mouse o matic
Where are the comics in the electronic paper that my wife made me take instead of my paper.
Services and quality is so poor 1/5
We would like to discontinue services
Great content 5/5
The Tennessean provides great content for local Nashville residents.
Where are the comic strips? 2/5
The App 1/5
I look forward to having my coffee in the morning and reading the paper using theApp. But today the APP is not working AGAIN!! The Tennessean is an incompetent organization. Believe me I have been on the phone with them numerous times and sent online requests for information. It is a failing business.
Pretty great paper and app 5/5

Pretty great paper and app. Subscribe so that we keep some level of local journalism going in mid-TN
By Jesús Montoya Escobar III
App needs some improvement. Have a subscription. Unable to view stories.
Good up to date news.
Can’t find what I need 2/5
By Nashville Cat Mama
The app won’t let me into my print account information to complain about no delivery or to put a stop on print delivery, yet when I try to use a browser to get to Tennessean.com, the app is opened
Awful app 1/5
This app is awful. I cannot find the newspaper as it appears in print.
Dopey app 1/5
Suddenly my Tennessean app said my account is inactive. Perhaps that explains why I can’t access the e-edition on my phone. The customer service rep said my account shouldn’t be inactive and promised to investigate. Meanwhile, no newspaper on my phone.
Not enough substance and too many ads 1/5
The Tennessean is not much of a “newspaper” anymore. Half of the newspaper is ads with way too many full page ads. Would love to see some world news included in the paper. This paper also needs to be bipartisan since it is the only newspaper in the area. It’s sad when you only get the paper once a week for the crossword puzzle, sale fliers and coupons. Won’t be renewing our subscription.
Must pay to read articles now 1/5
Despite years and years of using the Tennessean app, a couple months ago the app started to ask me to subscribe or log in to view an article. Initially I ignored it, it didn’t happen very often, and it wasn’t a big deal, of course paying subscribers should have more access to the newspaper. That was until the last 2 months, now it seems that there is no longer a rhyme or reason to the app blocking the viewing of the articles. Even when a notification doesn’t say, “subscribers only”, the article will be blocked from view. I refuse to buy a digital subscription, because the Tennessean uses personalized ad based revenue inside their app, and don’t offer an ad free version for subscribers. In my opinion, offering the app access to my personal information for them in turn to sell to advertisers, is more than compensation for online app access only. I called customer service, because other papers’ websites and apps, at the least say, “you have 10 free articles this month”. Then as a reader, you will know whether or not to click on an article-because why waste your “free articles” on headlines you read just to pass the time because you know you need to save your “free articles” for the headlines on the articles that pertain to you and you need the information. Not this paper, this paper sends notifications that doesn’t say “subscribers only” but will ask you to sign up or log in, they don’t tell you if you only have “x,y,z” number of articles you can view, and customer service is outsourced overseas to India and they only are there to answer the phone and sell subscriptions. I called customer service today and got nowhere, she would not even give me a local number. Can you believe the world we live in? You can’t even get the local phone number to the state newspaper anymore? Is that what this country is come to? It’s so much big business that we have to pay for news because ads aren’t enough and we don’t even have the right to contact our local paper directly here in TN and complain about it? I’m so sad for our country and what it’s come too. I remember the newspaper used to have the 615 number on the paper and a local Nashvillian would answer the phone when you called. It’s a shame. Delete this app, or don’t download it. It should be illegal for a newspaper to demand access to your personal information for nothing in return. Btw, you can get most of the news they send out in their notifications from News Channel 5’s app. Most of the time it matches their notifications word for word anyways! I really just wanted to read the story about why more teens are getting killed in cars this morning and couldn’t. Of all the articles, parents should be reading that one and reading it for free, that’s the one that it made me pay for-online and in the app. Isn’t that a shame? I just wanted to know how to help save lives and had to pay for the information! It makes me so sad. Of all the nonsense they write about and give out for free, the one thing that was really important, I couldn’t get access too unless I could afford a monthly subscription.
Inundated with ads 1/5
Never mind that I pay for a prescription, I can’t ever read past the advertisements covering the stories
Sports rag 1/5
i can’t stand all the Titans ads.
you’d think nothing else in & around the capital of Tennessee matters.
This is one of the hardest to use apps out there. A piece of garbage!
Won't stay logged in 1/5
I have an active digital subscription, but the app constantly logs me out. I can't stay logged in no matter what I try. Half the time it won't accept my login credentials at all - I enter them, and the empty login fields just reappear. Not even an error message. So I use the web site exclusively. The app is useless until this gets fixed, which I imagine will be the day after never.
Maybe worst news app ever! 1/5
Can’t even find the front page!
Smart app 5/5
By Lakes Park runner
Great, up-to-date information on the most important news in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
Great local paper covering news, sports, business, entertainment and more for Nashville and its surrounding counties.
Their music and music industry coverage are top notch in a place called Music City.
Finally Informed 5/5
The Tennessean has been such an incredible resource for staying up to date on the social and political happenings here in Nashville and all around the state. Definitely worth subscribing!
Why am I still receiving the emails from Tennessean I canceled my paper
No user customization 2/5
At app is okay, navigation is sloppy, but the biggest issue I have is it’s lack of customization. I dont care to receive notifications about high school football, but I want to hear about other sports (college and pro). I don’t care about the power being out in an area 3 hours from my house, only my county. Please fix.
This is not breaking news. It is old stuff and not worth anything. All of the content can be accessed on free sites. The Tennessean is getting progressively worse.
2018 training camp??? 2/5
By JR abcd
The Tennessean app shows constantly shows ridiculously outdated Titans stories at the top of the scroll. Still showing updates from 2018 training camp! Clean it up guys!
By Ethan Smoot-Alexander
By too old 4 bad credit
This is the worst.
Bad content 1/5
I’m not sure what’s driving content decisions, but I never actually see front page content similar to what’s in the physical paper. I see articles written 6 months ago, an emphasis on Opinion pages I couldn’t care less about, and a lot of On This Date articles as if I only want to reminisce about Nashville from 1979 - 30+ years before I moved it. Waste of time.
Good to have 4/5
Good to keep up with things in Nashville on line.
Digital subscription worthless 1/5
I finally caved a paid for a digital subscription. It recognizes my account and that I paid. It still tells me I need to subscribe to read further. Tech support fixes it. Then it goes back after two days.
By J B Hyder
Very informative and easy to access and read
Second worst ap on my iPad 2/5
When I try to view some articles, app gives me warning that I only have 4 articles left to. It’s this month. For an additional 90 cents a month I can have more access. About feed up with this message and the Tennessean! I rarely use app, not worth the stress of having a warning box popping in to block over half the screen of what I am reading. Seriously considering dropping this service,

App for Tennessean is disappointing. 2/5
By longing for old ways
I like my newspaper on a section by section, page by page, all the news that appears in print basis. I love sports and miss the stats portion of the sports news. I enjoy the orderliness of the articles, item by item. I like not having to search for the articles I am interested in, switching from section to section. I have an allergy to newsprint, so online is my only option.
By B'wood Reader
So slow to load. Ads are distracting with all the movement, blinking, etc. I would prefer to see actual news items in Top News (how Ms. Cheap, etc. makes Top News is beyond my understanding.) It seems to me that both the reporting and delivery of daily news is geared most toward profit.
By another someone
The notification filters are awful. If I want sports notifications I would turn on the sports notifications. I just want breaking news. Since when is experiencing the first half in pictures of a sports game or ways to watch said game considered “breaking news”? The Predators in the playoffs could be considered breaking news, but not 50 notifications about regular season Vols, Vandy or Titans games. Seriously...
