    By Marine City High School 1949
    I thank you for your allowing me to receive the NEWS digitally: A former Detroit area newspaper boy and High School whiz (Marine City) during the 40's and 50's) and former School Superintendent (East Detroit) during the 70's ( before the problems!).Always enjoyed the NEWS more than the FREE PRESS! How about that?

  • Ad free doesn’t work 3/5

    By FoxyRoxyTroxyBoxy
    Love the app - love the news. But when you subscribe to the ad free version, ads are still displayed. What’s the scoop?
  • USAToday lite 1/5

    By Solstice380
    What a waste. Not even any market reports in business section. The whole thing is organized like a child’s collage. Just more trash like USAToday.

    By JamesSteven24

  • Crap liberal newspaper 1/5

    By jim5666

    By Sarahal6611

    By Doctor AKA

  • Top stories 2/5

    By Jás

  • Subscription & Ads 2/5

    By Curly Q Linque
    I really like the app but paying the subscription price didn’t remove the ads. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app to no avail. It’s a frustrating situation.

  • Can't read story 1/5

    By Jpret
    The app opens and I can navigate selecting different sections however I can't open specific stories to read them. No matter the window. This is only true of this app, everything else functions normally.
  • Reader 5/5

    By BK Lion's
    Is there anyone on staff there that could find a Lion’s buyer? A new owner that would do what it takes to make the team competitive. The Lion’s have not been anything to praise since the Bobby Layne days. Not sure why the Detroit fans have remained so loyal? Pathetically disappointing. BIll
  • Update upsets! 2/5

    By 1979akc
    Since the latest update I can't open nearly half of the news articles for both the Det News and the Free Press on my IPad. The update needs an update!
  • Ad Free??? 1/5

    By TeddieJackEddie
    I purchased the ad free subscription ($2.99 per month) because l am sick of the chaos the ads create with the interface. What do you think happened after the purchase? Correct! There were ads all over the place! I cancelled immediately. All I can say POOR. Beware.
  • Integrity 5/5

    By Themadtaxi
    I have always depended on the Detroit news for honest and informative reporting I have lived abroad for years and depend on the Detroit news to keep me tuned in to what is happening in my home town and with all my favorite sports teams.
  • Great App but need to improve picture viewing 4/5

    By sp lions fan
    I have used the detnews app for at least 8 years. It’s great for keeping up with my home town. Especially my sports teams. I live in Chicago now. Only suggestion I have: please let me expand the view of the photographs that show up with the title of the article. Or add them again in the article itself. It’s disappointing sometimes when I can’t inspect those photos more closely. I use an IPhone. Perhaps that makes a difference.
  • Editing 1/5

    By Carhauler4u
    Please use an editor. So many errors. Even messed up a list of 11 michigan billionaires.
  • Like the news, dislike the new super obnoxious ads 2/5

    By KevinHall
    The new video ads that pop open 3 or more times while reading one article are ridiculous. I’m fine with ads, I get wanting to push subscriptions, but interrupting reading a single article with the same full screen ad multiple times is just obnoxious.
  • Great App. Biased content 1/5

    By Duped 2
    Really tired of the biased slant on nearly all stories. This deviates from the News/Free Press code of journalistic ethics and integrity. Just tell the news like it is. If I need an opinion, I will turn to the editorial section. As such, I will get my news elsewhere.
  • Ok 3/5

    By Hoodlum1720
    The app is ok, but should stop the race baiting articles.
  • Worst. Paper. Ever. 1/5

    By Evo153
    How is this shell of a paper not bankrupt yet?!?
  • So much better 5/5

    By Bull mom
    To echo some other reviews the News is so much more balanced than the Free Press which I found almost impossible to read- the journalists (if you can call them that) were just about their own personal feelings devoid of any facts - figures since they are a branch of USA TODAY - the News gives a good perspective and analysis. Enjoying the read so far.
  • Great 3/5

    By rebelchef
  • Good News 5/5

    By D. Rushlow
    I am originally from Wayne. I am retired military living in Ohio. The only way I keep up with sports and news in the Detroit area is with the Detroit News online!!! Thank you Detroit News for making this available!!!
  • Detroit newspapers 5/5

    By A. Winklepleck
    Both the News and Freep are outstanding reads. I’ve lived my life in metro Detroit and have read these two papers since I learned to do so.
  • Detroit’s Arkansas Connection 5/5

    By Docter Detroit
    Jeff Jackson reporting from Arkansas love the Detroit News app I get all my updates sports traffic shopping I stay in contact with the family and we have plenty to talk about love you Detroit news and the city
  • Detroit News - great info, lame videos 3/5

    By Snozberry
    I enjoy much of what the Detroit News has to offer. Breaking news, local issues, MSU sports and auto news. One thing that is becoming to the level of annoying is the attempted use of video. DN your a news paper - you do that well. While you are likely trying to make your app and site more ‘engaging’ with video -much of it seems to be nothing more than iPhone videos of press Confrence or attempted ‘sports shows’. When I’m checking in I just want the news, read what interests me and then I move on.
  • Tired of videos and auto play ads 1/5

    By He-Who-Hates-Annoying-Ads
    I’m getting sick and tired of being forced to watch more and more auto play ads and video ads. And I’m also tired of being tricked into clicking on ads by accident and then listening to all these tech and idiots brag about his popular their ads are.
  • Fair and balanced 5/5

    By Yoga racer
    Unlike Detroit's other daily, the Free Press, which is a liberal cesspool of racist and uneducated writers, the News gives a fairly accurate portrayal of events, without the typical liberal bias. They are sometimes hard on republicans, which is refreshing, especially when they deserve it. If you're only going to sign up for one paper to get Detroit's news, the News is it.
  • Needs work, no pics or comments 2/5

    By Patrick1911.45
    This app can use some work. You see a tiny picture with the headlines, but when you open the article there are no pictures included. Also, you cannot see the comments left by the readers like you can on the website.
  • Very laggy , crashes all the time 3/5

    By Joll002
    It’s a good app with much more to fix before it can be great
  • All the news that fits "..we print. 5/5

    By fyrftrtoledo
    I have been a Detroit News guy for many years because I like th,e Sports section. Now I Like the au tomotive news equally well. I haven't read the paper in the morning unless I have read the Detroit News. Mike Childers Toledo, Ohio
  • Not so much 1/5

    By My Game Day
    The latest update says I have to give the News permission to my settings before it will open up. Hogwash, I'll read the "Fee Press"
  • Ex-Michigan resident 5/5

    By Michael Brazil
    As an ex-Michigan resident and Michigan State 2 degree alum, I love your sports section. Keep going on the video analyses because it gives great context for me as a Florida resident, since I don't get local sports announcers opinions
  • Great local app 5/5

    By Duke 12321
    Great local app to stay connected.
