Piece of crap 1/5
By Soooo long
It recognizes I’m logged in at the top of the screen. But when I click on an article it asks me to subscribe or log in. When I click log in the log in doesn’t remain on the screen long enough to log in. Every article I want to read I have to leave the app, go to google, enter log in to bostonglobe.com and log in. For every freak’n article! If I want to read ten articles I have to log in ten times. I’m not going to bother to read the Globe anymore except the Sunday sports notes.
A Bit Of Home 3/5
By Dorchester Jerry
We love the Globe and the feel of being home in Boston it brings every day when holding the paper version over a cup of coffee. You do seem to do less reporting and more taking sides in the great polarization. How about “just the facts” again. Thanks for being there.
Your app won’t let me read the articles and I paid for a subscription
Format change 2/5
I prefer format simulating newspaper w full page view & option to highlight a story of interest
New format 1/5
By reading in Peabody
The old format that mirrored the actual newspaper was much easier to navigate.
New format is awful! 1/5
Like the old full page format with ability to enlarge individual articles.
Send it back to wherever it came from
Not as good 1/5
Knot as good as the old app where you could actually see the layout of the paper and read it as it was intended to be read.
Old News 1/5
The app has old news articles (sometimes many years old) riddled throughout sections. Some appear under headers such as “Latest Technology News.”
Simple, sleek, and fast 5/5
Great content wrapped in a great package.
Fake news- all the time 1/5
Every edition is replete with endless and unbalanced attacks on president Trump and Republican ideas in general.
All stories inconsistent with the far left agenda are either not reported , or spun to fit the narrative.
Fact based journalism is non existent- even straight news stories are written as if they were on the editorial page.
Son, Husband, Father, Grand Da ... 5/5
Insightful Stirring, Honest, thorough, inspiring,Inclusive and Invitingly Habitual! Rob (Loved, Worked and Florished in Boston, Happily Retired and ReInventing In RI)
The Best 5/5
By Complusive Charlie
I’m 78 years young and having been reading the Globe for at least 70 of those years. I can remember siting on my front stairs in West Medford waiting for the Globe to be delivered so I could get all the sports highlights and box scores.
In my working career I traveled a lot for business and I made sure the Globe was saved for my enjoyment when I got home.
The globe had so many great writers whether it was politics or international news but my love of sports was what got me hooked from Cliff Keane, Bob Ryan, Tom Fitzgerald, Leigh Montvale , the king of football writers Will McDonough, Peter Gammons. Plus your coverage of high school and college sports can’t be beat
Please don’t stop being the #1 newspaper in the country
Just reopened online subscription 2/5
Password problems galore!
Annoying as hell.
Boston Globe 5/5
By Psych girl 817
Best paper ever!!!!!! 🙂❤️❤️❤️❤️
Death notices 2/5
I usually find them in the metro section but not on this app. The search engine can’t find them either
Cancellation requires a phone call? Give me a break 1/5
It’s bonkers that the Globe requires you to call a phone number to cancel your subscription. And you have to do it during business hours.
This shows contempt for Globe readers, or cluelessness on the part of the Globe’s policy makers.
This reminds me of something Comcast would do.
Great app, great reporting 5/5
First I want to emphasize how critical it is in this day and age to support quality reporting and the Boston Globe really stands out.
I am particularly impressed by the investigative reporting done by the Spotlight team well beyond their Pulitzer Prize series in abusé in the Catholic Church. The current report on the sad fate of Valedictorians is an eye opener.
The app itself makes access to the news easy. It should in fact send me more text alerts for articles! On an iPhone they are regrouped by source and are a nice incentive to check what’s happening.
Love reading the Globe 5/5
The Globe has talented reporters & journalists who keep me updated on the latest news everyday.
Great, reliable app. 5/5
Great, reliable app. Nice companion to my subscription
The Sportswriters 5/5
By barkin bill
are not tomato cans
Have read the Globe for years. 5/5
The writing is informed and timely and the sports section in particular is great.
Not a good sign 1/5
First time on it completely froze.
Globe online 1/5
This app stinks. I liked the old format
Worse than the older version 1/5
By Orthotic man
Loads poorly. Photos too much of the screen. Can’t scan the headlines without a lot of scrolling. Go back, please.
Ok but I want RSS feeds 3/5
By rcharbon at y42k
Would be better if articles I’ve read would go away.
Best Sports Section Anywhere 5/5
For any sports fan, and especially a Boston sports fan, there is no better comprehensive, in depth, sports coverage than the Boston Globe.
No comments 3/5
Wish I could see reader comments. Can’t see them with this app, only with a web browser.
Uncurated news feed 2/5
It’s pretty much an uncurated news feed. One example, as new stories were added about the sexual harassment allegations against the head of Boston’s Catholic health care system, they were just stacked on top of each other, all topped with the exact same photo. The typography was identical for each headline. The typefaces and design are lackluster. It feels as though there’s no editor.
Very unreliable on my iPad 1/5
Terrible experience every morning
Why no full page views 1/5
I like the prior version much better. Allowed the user to see the full front page and move to each page from front to back if one chooses. What happened?
Paper great but shrinking 4/5
By Richard E of Devens
There is less content in the paper every week. I buy The NY Times once a week. Packed with content.
Globe app 2/5
The app presentation of over the top photos is gross and way too much. It s about the news not the pictures! Also going into “sections” cuts the view in half and the presentation again for low literacy readers. Just the news please.
Gladiator and my subscription 1/5
By Sparty's human
I bough this subscription to read this series and I can’t access it. Why is that?
Great Writers 5/5
Well written newspaper. Relevant articles. I always feel well informed after reading the daily paper. And many of the writers have great wit and wisdom which makes it a fun paper to read
New format 1/5
This new format is NOY reader friendly!!
I would very much like the previous version back, which is not in a vertical form!!
I wish this app was available earlier.....absolutely love it.....easy to use.....SO MUCH better than having to use the normal web site.....
The traditional format was much better
Luv it! 5/5
By Pam, i am
hello, Boston Globe! Love the new interface! I’ve had Boston Globe as an app for my smart phone forever, but this new interface is terrific. thank you for all the updates you have made.
Still great, but... 3/5
By quincy raider
I love the Boston Globe and have read it every day for 45 years. I still don’t miss a day, even though I don’t live in Boston anymore. My one concern is that it increasingly seems determined to enter the culture wars, more as a participant than as an observer. I am not a habitual critic of the press, and I don’t look for liberal bias under every leaf. But I think the Globe’s news articles do tend to be slanted, and the selection of what to report or omit seems to reflect an agenda at times. In the opinion pages, liberal perspectives outnumber conservative ones by at least 4 to 1. Many columns are preachy and repetitive, more hysterical than thought-provoking. I hope the editorial board will occasionally self-reflect and remember that its more strident members do not hold a monopoly on truth and justice. Still, I love the paper and probably always will.
Excellent app 4/5
By 67 EJD
We have waited for a real GLOBE app for far too long. This app is excellent.
So much better 5/5
The new app is so much better than it has been... not perfect, but finally close enough to be worthwhile.
Good idea, but so ugly... 3/5
By Jonah Hex
The best news apps replicate the beauty and style of the newspaper it is replicated on. This app is functional, but so ugly. I would rather look at the content on a browser.
Everything looks better 5/5
By Dr. Picky
I’ve been a Boston Globe reader for decades. And an online subscriber for about 15 years. No ink on my hands, and the screen never rips. Now, with the new app everything is easy to find, content is always fresh...and the photos are spectacular!
Fan From Near and Far 5/5
I have been reading the Globe for about 60 years whether I lived in Boston, Maine, South Florida, Shemya, Alaska, Herzogenaurach, Germany, or my current home, Greenville, SC. Many times the paper was a day or a week old. It didn’t matter. The Globe is the best at covering local, regional, and national news on a daily basis. Sports columnists like Peter Gammons, Bob Ryan, and Dan Shaughnessy are gifts to a literate sports fan. The Spotlight team’s investigative reporting pulled back the curtain on despicable behavior by a powerful, entrenched institution. ( A shoutout to my BLS classmate Steve Kurkjian). Although I have lived away from Boston for more than 50 years, the Globe allows me to be a lifetime Bostonian.
Old Format 1/5
By Old School 99
I like the option of seeing the paper format.
Obnoxiously one sided reporting 1/5
The coverage of the Kavanaugh confirmation is bitter and partisan. An individual now needs to read 3 or 4 newspapers to develop a balanced view on an issue. The Boston Globe has sunk to new lows of sensationally liberal one sided reporting. Bummer.
Found so many good articles 5/5
By reads and walks
Subscribed for years. Never figured out how to find all the stories. Till now.
Cant comment so why bother 1/5
Longtime Online subscriber. Commenting not allowed, comments not shown. Those are a valuable part of every story. So i still have to look on my browser. This app is useless as far as i am concerned
So much better! 5/5
This is way better than the e reader. Great work! Love the accessibility and clarity of this app
