Orlando Sentinel Reviews


Non functional app  Unfitbit  1 star

After signing up for subscription last week, each time I try to access the Sentinel receive message used up articles. I go through the time wasting check subscription process with reply I am a subscriber. Beautiful Sentinel and Apple-amazing technology! Also a beautiful thing you must rate app before sending comments-Where are the minus 5 stars that is my rating


Typically Bad Tribune/Tronc  NYNY212  1 star

Tribune and Tronc apps are almost universally bad, but this has to be the worst of the worst. It is full of bugs, takes forever to open and then freezes repeatedly. Almost as bad is the fact that the Sentinel is terrible at updating it. The lead story could be at the top for 36 hours, regardless of what is going on. Newer stories are sprinkled haphazardly throughout the page with no rhyme or reason. Looking for the "latest" news is useless. And big stories that are in the print edition or the digital print edition are hard to find, if they're in the app at all. I keep hoping Tronc will be taken over by another media company, just so this tragic app would be replaced.

A Waste  Jason Paul Cheney  1 star

After updating, I realize that there is now a limit for reading anything. There used to be a little flag in the corner of the article indicating it was a premium story. I thought that was bad but stuck with it. Now there is no indication and after 20 minutes of reading I have hit my monthly limit. I could understand if there were no ads, but that is not the case. There are many places to get the news daily whether local or national that treat user better. I would definitely NOT recommend this app. I actually hope that I don't even have to rate it one star for it to count. UPDATE: I did have to rate it at least one star to review. Also, since then they have changed it from 20 stories per month to 10. UPDATE 7-11-17 They have lowered it now to 5 stories per month. Still the same amount of advertisements. All I do is delete the app and redownload and keep reading. I'm sure this is to increase the download numbers and then charge more for advertising. If they would just stop with the games this might have a better rating.


Used to be ok  Rhijt  1 star

They have reduced the number of free stories a month from 10 to 5.


Latest version now only allows five articles  Ron32713  1 star

Waste of application space as they've gradually reduced the number of free articles per month even with ads! Can get local news from so many outlets, nothing special enough to warrant a subscription...so time to say goodbye from my devices.

Useless, don't waste your time  the real puzzle man  1 star

Does nothing

Come On Now...  1/2 Smart Person  2 star

This app is sad, you get 10 article reads per month, then it becomes useless. The irony however is that a quick google search and you can read the article on safari for free! It makes the app rather pointless. Just open it up and let the ads pay for the content Orlando Sentinel...


Update: The worst app EVER!  phoebenews  3 star

Update: I've changed my rating to reflect a more optimistic outlook as the glitch seems to have been corrected today. I cancelled my subscription yesterday, which still leaves me almost a month to use it. This should give me enough time to work with it and decide if I want to renew. ***************** I wish I hadn't wasted almost $8 on this stupid app that can't even open the link I click. Still can't get it right OS? After all these years? Don't waste your money. It's the worst.


Great news app  Mayberryrev  5 star

I really enjoy this app I get all of my national and vacation news they have good coverage.


Confusing  Lat467  1 star

I thought I would be able to read the paper by paying for a subscription in this app. Well, I can't. It only allows access to the website. If I wanted to search for my news I could do that in my browser with better results. I tried to search for an article in today's paper and the search returned a list of videos several years old. Worthless. Why do I have to pay for a physical paper delivered to my home. Then I am able to read the paper electronically and the physical version just goes into recycling. It is such a waste I refuse to do it.


Orlando Sentinel  SpaceAce85  3 star

Sort of ridiculous to pay $4.99 for access to DigitalPlus stories. Just Google the headline and read it for free on the mobile version site. Otherwise, for the most part the app is an improvement from previous versions.


Horrible  Purplecdl  1 star

To many Pizza Hut ads. Charging now, really!!!!! Same content is free elsewhere.


Good app but hogs memory  Tom2354  3 star

Would be great if it didn't occupy 500MB memory on the phone.


What are they thinking ????  Renfred  1 star

Was my go to app for news because I live in Orlando. Now they want $4.99 a month to read certain articles. I wonder if they even realize you can just google the article and read the exact story on line they blocked it on the app ? So not getting anything extra !!! Just saves a few extra steps to read it !!! Along with annoying ads that pop up and stay for about 4 seconds each. Ok with the ads. Charging to read articles ???? No other news app does that. So I will use those and anyone who asks about the Sentinal app will be warned. Not good business. I hope they re evaluate this decision.


Horrible  WeeziePeanut  1 star

The articles are horribly written and completely biased. If you want unbiased reporting, go somewhere else for your news. The new app is the worst thing available in the App Store. Delete.


Don't Bother  Cpc3289  1 star

You need to pay to read most stories since the update. Other media outlets for Orlando have completely free apps.


Terrible update  Rebabear  1 star

Have been unable to access for several days. Many articles are now unavailable unless you have a paid subscription. Forwarded articles cannot be opened.


Lousy update  Srkoog  1 star

Stopped running 3 days ago.


Bunk!  Rwmega  1 star

Wow crashed on first try. Now I have to pay for content? Uh no this isn't the New York Times. I'll gather my news from other places. Good luck with this.


Terrible App!  ktmfactoryrider  1 star

This has to be the worst app that has ever been published. I suppose they want money over than any quality application now, it just used to be bad now is unusable. This program will run a few times and then, if you want to use it, it has to be deleted and downloaded again. The only reason that I stuck with it for a little while is that I paid for a subscription but now that the subscription is over, I'm done with this piece of crap! I'm trying to leave it NO STARS but I don't know if that will work, I might be forced to leave it one star. It doesn't even deserve that though... THIS IS A SAD PATHETIC, UNUSABLE APP, DO NOT DOWNLOAD!
