IndyStar Reviews

  • By


    The only reason I rate this app 1 star is because 0 or a negative number was not an option. Indianapolis is my home town and I love everything about the city. Unfortunately, it’s only news paper has become a complete joke. And it’s digital newspaper is less than a joke. DO NOT sign up for a digital subscription. If you want to cancel (and you will soon after signing up), they make it impossible to deactivate your account. Which obviously is by design. Which makes the owners of Gannett Newspapers (the owners of the Indianapolis Star) even more reprehensible. It pains me to post this review. This is my second attempt at a subscription. The only reason I signed back up for a ‘script, was for Colts coverage. The straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back? An article following Sunday’s win...well, 6 nonsensical sentences. I tried. Again. But, I’m done.

    Fraudulent chages

    We live in Pendleton, Indiana we used to get the paper delivered on Thursday and Sunday. Last year we started experiencing issues with not getting the paper delivered. After multiple calls, they insisted we would get the paper on the next run. It never happened but they kept taking payments out of our account. So we decided to just quit getting the paper. They did reimburse us and I thought the issue was resolved. However, once again on Nov 12, 2019, they once again took a payment of 3 times the normal amount we had been paying and guess what we still haven’t received one paper. This borders on criminal considering that I have closed our account with them. I have sent an email to the Vice President Mr. Hakanson and am awaiting a response. Has anyone else experienced thus issue? Dawn Mattingly

    Don’t Waste Your Money

    I didn’t want to connect this app to my facebook account. After several attempts, I was able to create an account with my email address and a password. The app does not provide access to the online account you created, which can only be accessible through their website. So, creating the account was pointless. I don’t want to pay for news that I can get for free elsewhere. (Content in this app is high level and contains many of the same stories the provider shares on twitter/facebook.). This was super disappointing. Once I was in the app, and surfing around, every article I viewed had an advertisement positioned in the middle of the content, asking me to subscribe to e-access, which I thought I had just done when I agreed through iTunes to subscribe for $4.99 per month. This was the final straw, only a few hours after agreeing to subscribe. Well, after this experience, I’ve cancelled the subscription I just signed up for and am deleting the app from my phone. No thanks... I’ll find my news elsewhere.

    These day everyone wants to condemn guns as an evil force that makes people be violent and not take responsibility for their actions, yet alcohol is a more serious problem but very few complains about alcohol. Drunk drivers kill with the same deadly force and devastating the lives of so many. I have yet to see an inanimate object do anything on its own, no matter what object, whether car, gun knife, ball bat it’s ALWAYS the person behind it. James R Fox Greenwood

    My Indy from afar

    I have been a fan of the Indy star for 40 years and find them to be fair minded in there reporting and enjoy the editorial section, and even though I live a thousand miles away I read it daily and follow so many things in the city that interests me everyday. Thank you, I miss my city, it's people and my wonderful friends. Captain Ray R Irvin aka Mr Greenways

    Free or subscription…both are winners!

    We follow several digital newspapers across US. Indy Star is one of the best organized, easy to navigate, aesthetically pleasing, and generous with the amount, quality and variety of free access articles. Great photos, too. Wish (crossword) puzzles were available on free version.

    My community connection

    Ignore the comments and cries of bias. Sure, the editorials are often left of center, but editorials are not reporting. The Star's reporting is topical, pertinent, and quality. And they excel at local human interest stories, which often intrigue and delight. I love my hometown paper.

    Decent interface, needs search

    I’ve used the app for a few years and it has improved but there are times when I want to go back and search for an article about a person or event and cannot seem to find a way to do this.

    Indy Star app

    I like the app because it's easier to read articles on it than in the print version. Especially enjoy the advance access to Matthew Tully's column and some other articles as well. The only improvement I can think of would be to take out the ads.

    Lacking basic functions

    The app only gives you access to some articles. For example, a headline will appear in a FB feed but I can’t find it on the app. Further, it would be nice to be able to have the article found in a newsfeed to automatically launch in the app. It doesn’t. This app functions solely as a reader which is disappointing. Could be so much more robust.

    On Line Star

    It takes a bit of getting used to reading the news in this manner, but the content is good and the app works well.

    Needs a search function

    The app reading experience is fine, but it lacks the ability to search recent articles that have fallen off the curated main pages.

    Content I Want!

    Liked IndyStar from beginning however, new format takes some time getting used to. Not clear division of news and sports.

    App is easy to use and content is easy to find. I also like that the articles fit into my screen.
