IndyStar App Tips & Tricks

IndyStar Reviews


Good Coverage  ElizTed  5 star

I live on the east coast so the Indianapolis Star (digital edition) is my link to what's happening in my former city. Not only does it keep me informed of all the local news, including sports, but it offers good coverage and commentary on national issues as well.


They're back!  Agranthale  5 star

Glad the articles aren't cut short anymore.


Solid App, Great Content  strat3201  5 star

App works great, content is always top quality. Zak Keefer, Stephen Holder and Gregg Doyel are reason enough to subscribe.


Hometown paper  Bob5856  2 star

I have to say after living in Indianapolis my entire life the Star has now gone in much different political direction. What was once an overwhelmingly 'right' leaning source it's now moved to the left.


Great  Nana11+3  5 star

Good coverage of up to date info...


Good source of news  L-Rub  4 star

Articles are always timely and instant to the event. Appreciate the story alerts to my phone and like the mix of text, pictures and videos on many stories. Sometimes the many ads throughout the articles are repetitive and get in the way of continuity. Since I can't always read the stories immediately, i like being able to access recent stories that I missed.


Paying money for digital subscription  Indyfanjudy  3 star

I am annoyed at paying 12 $$$ per month and still have to put up with ads on the digital subscription of the IndyStar. As of May 1st. 2017, I still fill the same way about the ads annoying when I am paying for the subscription. Judy


Terrible  Wobegone212  1 star

Absolutely unequivocally the worst newspaper in America.


Serves its purpose  Jb236647  4 star

Overall it's a clean interface and easy to navigate


Worst news app that I own.  Indy46227  2 star

I'm a print subscriber to the Indianapolis Star as well as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. The Star's app is by far the worst app I own. Why do other newspaper apps work so seamlessly and this one frequently will not update stories. It seems to work better in wifi, during still. . .

Good app  KD 317  5 star

I love getting news alerts. App works well. Only one glitch when it deleted all of my "save for later" articles. Looks like it's green greatly improved since the past.


Great Paper, for Conservatives  Caretaker22  5 star

This is a very good app and very easy to use. The newspaper is good if not a little bit right leaning.


Great News App!  Mrmrtx  5 star

I love keeping up with the latest news from my iPhone. I get alerts on breaking news stories hours before the news is broadcasted on TV.
