Match Pictures to Stories  Andy Bauer  4 star

Overall nice job. When going from article to article however, sometimes the wrong picture loads for a story.


Horrible Customer Service In Foreign Country  FrankCarlozzi  1 star

Very Inconsistent and Extremely Horrible Customer Service Technicians in Foreign Country


Not a newpaper  Lottedo  1 star

If you want to see the actual newspaper, you still have to go through your browser! This app is a waste of space!


Could be better  CarlMH  2 star

Could be visibly more appealing.


Not the same  Greatnsmall  3 star

I have or supposedly have 7 day digital access but the paper isn't at all the same as the print version. At times I get a message that I have read one out of five allowed (free access) articles yet my bill says I have unlimited access tithe digital Courant. It's not always easy to navigate, I find myself unable to read the entire article when I can't find where the continued part is. Maybe a good would help but it isn't the same as reading from the paper.


Don't understand bad reviews  rcallahan1991  5 star

I dont understand the bad reviews of the Courant - Im a regular reader and subscriber and enjoy the coverage of both national and local news - the app layout isn't quite as intuitive as some other news apps but far from the worst and it lets me stay updated with all the topics I follow. Push notifications lag behind Times and Post for instance on national news, but can't get any better source for state and local. If you live in CT this is definitely the way to go (as long as you have a subscription). Stay informed and think critically as with all news sources!


Regular reader of e-newspaper  IJoeB  5 star



Great app.  Kubs44  5 star

Rely on it regularly. Get all the news quickly. Easy to scroll through. Thanks, Courant.


Update:  22223219  1 star

They got worse!! Changed to 5 stories free for a month. Same news everywhere else for free and they want to charge for horribly written stories and biased commentary and writings. Pitiful! Deleted! I do not normally write reviews however this I felt warranted. The stories are generally quick but informative but subscription based? The Courant's content is minimal! Laced with both grammatical and spelling errors. When I click a story I expect content not a short sentence or 2 to follow up the lead in then nothing! The NY Times I would pay- The stories are thought provoking and well written and worthy of my money.


Needs some work  BruceTr  2 star

I receive both the paper and digital editions of the Courant. I find it difficult to read today's stories on the digital editions and separate them from previous days. There should be a filter to select the stories from a particular day. I would also like the app for the iPad to include a feature on which appears on the website showing a digitized version of the day's paper using the same layout. This way when a friend recommends that you read a story on the first page of the local section you can find it easily. Finally, a newspaper is not a newspaper without comics (sorry NYT and WSJ). Why can't I read comics in the digital edition?

@SeanScanlonCT: Glad to see both sides came together overnight to end this dispute but it doesn't change the negative impact this had on…

Waste of time  JVipadguy  1 star

It looks nice. But the point of a newspaper is to actually read some news and that's where the Courant app fails, or rather, crashes. Most days, I can get through the opening paragraph before getting dumped. Then I restart the app, reread the first paragraph, and get dumped again. Here, I've skipped a space, just to remind myself of what an actual second paragraph looks like. There are lots of good newspaper Apps out there. The Courant team ought to take a look at some of them. In the meantime, I have to read that first paragraph of the Uconn basketball article again.

Far better app but, where's the search?  Erik Bowen  3 star

This is a far better than the previous app. But, where's the search function? And I think it would be great if you could integrate CTNOW into this app as well. That being said—it looks sharp, it feels great (like it was made for the iPad) and I really like the follow feature. And do we finally have the whole Courant?


A Pretty Good Update  MSewall  4 star

This version is flashier than the earlier one, and the presentation of articles is more tightly integrated with the web version of the paper than before. Its use of photography to identify article resembles the long-standing look and feel of the AP news app. I do like both the ability to save articles for later and also the ability to specify topics, such as "UConn Huskies,” that one wants to follow. I do think the previous app looked more like a newspaper. The new photo spread looks cluttered and provides less information than the opening paragraph format of the previous version (which was not devoid of photos). I suppose that’s purely a matter of aesthetics (one person’s 4 stars may be another’s 5 stars).


App Store Redirect  @xtopher  1 star

Content aside, I take exception with any app that automatically redirects me to the App Store.


Random App Store Opening  Johngalt78  1 star

Why the fu*k does this constantly open the App Store? Total bull

Luis Rodriguez

Horrible  Luis Rodriguez  1 star

Keeps sending me to the app store every time I open an article. Extremely annoying.

Hartford EF

Awful  Hartford EF  1 star

This app is terrible. The articles aren't kept up to date, the ads are huge, and now, it automatically sends you to the App Store to some random game page whenever you try to open the app or a new article! Just awful. Definitely removing this app and finding my news elsewhere!


Amazing  ByeByeAndroid  1 star

As hard as it is to believe, this app is even worse than the worthless paper. When you click on a story it auto opens the App Store to some worthless app. Is there anyone at the courant that knows how to do anything? The HC will not make it another five years let alone another 250.

Lucaya Bill

What's with the App Store business?  Lucaya Bill  1 star

Every time you start to look at an article, the app automatically jumps to the App Store page for whatever app is being advertised. Incredibly annoying.


Annoying  543kid  2 star

It's always behind on the news and now it opens the App Store immediately for you to download a game that's advertised on the Courant. That's just going to drive away users
