Beautiful site very informative keep up the good work!❤️😍😘😗😙


My community connection  WiffleWafer  5 star

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.


Really good work IndyStar!  Tdakich  5 star

Appreciate it.


Insightful and relevant local reporting.  MisterMoron  5 star

Insightful and relevant local reporting.


Indy Star app  kwp47  4 star

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.


Turned almost 100% Liberal  lrigsby  1 star

I delivered this paper 61 years ago and I was proud to do so. But now the paper has got so thin. What news, or information it does have is 90% Liberal, it makes no sense for me to even take this paper twice a week. They should change their newspapers name to CNN. (Fake News)

Works fine  political mom  4 star

I still can't find some articles in the app that are in the actual paper.


Love this App!  Lilhardy1964  4 star

Love this App!


Nice app  DRPrater  4 star

It has worked much better lately in navigation effort and live links. It will get you to most of all of the material unless it is not a live link. Has gotten much better with navigation with better menu selections. Has improved with time. Since it shares platform with USA Today that makes it a much easier one to work with.


Easy, convenient usage  CDALLAS007  5 star

Excellent app that usually updates live news and sports coverage relatively quickly.


Bad Move - Deleting App!  a74523419  1 star

Hoodwinked me into updating app (said bug fixes) that now requires a monthly fee equal to Netflix of Hulu. IndyStar news does not deliver that kind of value, you have to deal with ads (which I don't mind but not if I'm paying), and the content is mostly recycled USA Today articles and gossip with clickbait headlines. Sad to see its slow demise. Local tv doesn't charge, so I'll look at their ads instead.

Hoosier Jill

Wonderful app!  Hoosier Jill  5 star

I love having the Indy Star on my phone! All news is well-reported, and emergencies are posted quickly.


Must have app!  Clbcat  5 star

The best way to keep up with Indy news. It is a must have

Indy Star Review  Ian Kitcoff  5 star

I love this app! It is so resourceful and full of fun! Not only does it include news but also hands on videos as well. I love that it allows us to sign up for "Breaking News" alerts and allows us to edit the settings as well. For the price, I think it is a phenomenal app and awesome to use if you care about Indianapolis News!


$7.99/month ok BUT...  DebraWL  3 star

I understand that newspapers need to charge for their product. It costs money to pay staff and other operating expenses. However if I subscribe on one device (iPad), I should be able to also read content on my other device (iPhone). Please correct or I may cancel my digital subscription. Thanks.
