  • Stale

    By Slightly obsessive
    The head article on the news page is 89 days old. 'Nuff said.
  • Poor design

    By Motownmat
    Why can’t the developers fix the cover photos that appear in each article? The same cover photo appear above each story. This has been a problem for over a year and never addressed. They should write a story out their inept programming skills.
  • Worst. Paper. Ever.

    How is this horrible paper not bankrupt yet?!?
  • News

    The disgraced media continues to ridicule our great president, one would think that this leftist news outlet would notice their error but, continuing down into the swamp and still melting down due to hillary klinton losing Big Time. Start reporting the news correctly, leftist losers !
  • Great mobile newspaper app!

    By Buddy cat & Smokey
    I normally will not read newspapers on line, but the Free Press app is really easy to read and find what section you want. This is the best newspaper app that I have and I definitely will keep reading it! My complaint I'm now having is that the advice column is terrible - sometimes there aren't any new questions for days - my Oakland Press has new ones daily in Dear Abby....sigh! Line Dancing Grandma The advice columns aren't any better....they disappear for days - what happens?. I just changed the number of review stars to one...why, because again and again columns are disappearing, especially the advice columns!! I will close the app if this doesn’t clear up. This has gone on for days - I have been a Free Press reader for years and really like this app since we go to Florida. This app is getting worse and worse! Is there a reason why certain sections are not updated daily! I will no longer recommend this app to my snowbird friends from the Detroit area - please do not ask me to rate this app again unless you’ve fixed this problem!
  • Lose the ads!

    By motownspecial313
    This Ann Curry ad is ruining the app experience, fine I understand something have to keep the lights on...but you need to remove automatic launch/highly sensitive tap. It is very annoying...
  • Anything new

    By Headinhome
    The same pictures and stories remain on sport pages for weeks, even months.
  • Needs improvements

    By MoBoost
    Pictures totally unrelated to the story are at the beginning of the articles. New version, with selections at the bottom is not an improvement. It would be good to have access to comments, such as are available through I subscribe to the paper, but I have to pay to eliminate ads?
  • Sports are Not Breaking News

    By tang29
    I’ve chosen not to receive notifications for sports, therefore, I do not want to be notified about sports.
