  • Doesn’t like it when you leave

    By TBone369
    Every time I want to quickly do anything outside the app it put me back to the first page. Even when I’m in the middle of a story I’m committing on. So frustrating
  • Great news source

    By Mikerp01
    My go to for news.
  • Please fix this issue…

    By Bickelc
    I’m reading an article, then I get a text. I reply to the text. Go back to the app and it reloads on the home page. Now I have to search for the article, etc.
  • Love the Freep

    By Bouginvilla
    Best Detroit paper. Great writers. Has been for decades, since the days of George Puscas, Bob Talbert, Joe Falls, Jack Saylor, Jerry Green, Jim Fitzgerald, Mike Downey and on and on, and continuing to the present era with perhaps the best of them all, Mitch Albom. I delivered the Freep in the 1960s and have loved it ever since.
  • Needs a redesign!

    By dylaroo
    This app is extraordinarily frustrating to use. Every time one toggles to another app, and then returns to the Freep app at any time in the future, the app returns to the home page, forcing the reader to hunt for the article he/she was reading. Poorly thought out design and user experience. Learn from those news apps who do it correctly!
  • Good coverage bad app

    By E Powers Porcupine
    The Freep is the last vestige of a free press even if it was swallowed by a big chain. But it’s annoying that they keep telling me to subscribe for access to subscriber-only content when I am a subscriber.

  • Almost great!

    By Joe Chateau
    I love everything about this app....except for one strange issue. I can go to any sport and get up-to-date news with one exception. When I click on Lions it’s stuck on the news from Nov. 29th. Tate is saying the Lions have to win the rest to make the playoffs. I have deleted the app and reinstalled it, but it still sticks on Nov. 29th. How can this be fixed?
  • Great app

    By black walk
    My one criticism is there are too many ads. Other that that it is fantastic!
  • Leave the app briefly, starts you back at the home page…

    By Schonem2
    When using the app, if you leave it, even briefly, it returns to the home page instead of keeping you at the article you are reading. Not great in that aspect.
