The Coloradoan App Tips & Tricks

The Coloradoan Reviews


Good local coverage, but no politics....  AnnaG_CO  4 star

The Coloradoan is great for local news. It doesn't provide coverage of state or federal politics, so one has to go elsewhere for that info, but the app works well and is easy to use.


Easy and informative  Ahnie  4 star

This app is simple and easy! All the local news in one place! Thanks


The only source of local news  Colorado55  4 star

The Coloradoan is the only reliable news source for NoCo locals. I have very impressed with their coverage of breaking local news in the last year and have replaced Denver 9 with the Coloradoan as my primary source.


Good app to catch big stories but could use more content.  rjprivatei  4 star

I like this paper because it gives some good local stories. Unfortunately, the number of stories is a bit light for a town the size of Fort Collins.


Simple and User Friendly  PandaFondu  5 star

This is a news app and nothing more - the way it ought to be.


Prominent ads, despite paid-up digital subscription  dgstangel  3 star

I love the Coloradoan; it is the only reliable source for local news and the reporters do good work. My three complaints are: 1. Tons of ads, including blatant examples of "click bait" and "fake news" links. (I.e., "Try this one weird trick..."). This, despite the annual digital subscription price. I'm happy to pay for the good work that the Coloradoan does, but let's omit the ads. Stop double-dipping with the online content. Unlike the print version, I am NOT paying you to show me online ads. Just news. Why not offer a separate, extra-premium "ad free" version? What's the risk? Charge me whatever you think it's worth. 2. No search. The website version of the paper offers a very useful text search feature, but not the app. Would love to see this. 3. Typos, typos, typos. Does anyone proofread or copy-edit the digital content? It is a rare article I read that doesn't have at least a handful of egregious errors, usually in basic sentence structure. Surely you could hire a couple of CSU English majors as low-paid interns to help clean this up?

Nice way to enjoy the local news  Back in colo  4 star

I've been using the app for 4 months. It works well and seems like a great way to get the local news.


Out of date news  MarvP  1 star

The iPad version of this app is useless unless you are interested in "news" that is days, weeks or in some cases months old. Updating does nothing to fix this. While there might be one or two up-to-date articles, it by no means mirrors the local news that appears in the paper copy. Useless!

IPad version of the App is useless - most stories, including those about the weather are 76 days old - and will not refresh. Have tried deleting and reinstalling the App to no avail. Have been forced to use Safari and the normal website. Have sent feedback several times - but never received response. iPhone version seems ok.

Wylie Coy Ote

App is unstable  Wylie Coy Ote  2 star

While content is good, this app is a horrible platform and no one from the paper seems to know or care that there are stories hung at the top of the page that are 40 days old. I pay a digital subscription fee and they can't keep it current? It's almost impossible to find anyone at the paper who will talk about the problem. The Coloradoan does not seem to care about digital subscribers, only those who have a paper delivered.

Frustrating app  Cartel Fan  2 star

I love the Coloradan but hate the app, although I still use it daily. I am constantly accidentally sliding from article categories rather than scrolling down like I intend. Extremely frustrating. I always hit something that changes the article. The app also closes randomly. This is coming from an 18 year old who adequately understands how to use an iPhone as well.

Search and or save  House shopper374839  3 star

Oh...and how about a bookmarking, save or search feature? I'd like to be able to find that article on great hikes this weekend when I go hiking :-)


Awful  DeeRae  1 star

The app does not update. Terrible app.


Great!  Beerelf  5 star

It's the local news!


Aweful  Fcnative  1 star

This version is awful. Some sections not updated for over a week, including obits. May cancel overpriced subscription.


Too pricey-sorry  Beanheard  1 star

$7.99 a month is a lot of money for the occasional reader. Should have options for daily read instead.

Good stuff!  Chris Throssel  5 star



Update Impressive  Bozionelos  4 star

I like seeing more content with the update instead of the main articles. Nice work.


Refine the categories  T4227  2 star

It seems silly to put sports in the NEWS section. There is a section for sports, why don't all the sports stories go there? I looked at the news, and 50% of the stories were about sports!!


Good to great  Pfsemaj  5 star

The previous version was good, I got an update just now and the new version is great
