The Coloradoan App Tips & Tricks

The Coloradoan Reviews


Good way to 'pulse' local news  Flathead04  4 star

I run thru the headlines each day to remain 'plugged-in' to local info.


Simple good local news app  Gjb1221  4 star

Nothing special, just a solid local news app. Love it


An Outstanding Local  slncolo  5 star

Built around sections...first being local and regional then a healthy dose of national with their link to USA Today. Try Kevin Dugan out...a seasoned reporter covering detailed workings of the city and sometimes lighter fare. I'm impressed with their invites to come sit with them and kick things around where they ask, "how can we improve?"


CSU  DallasCowboys1993  5 star

Perfect for anyone interested in CSU athletics news.


Very good  RACalhoun  4 star

Nice presentation of the local news. Very mobile friendly.


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.

Old hide

Great app. Best newspaper app I've got


Could use a screen fix  zzim60thisisme  3 star

Screen only allows viewing on iPad vertically. I would like to rotate it horizontally.


Excellent FoCO Resource!  AstroGirlM42  5 star

Love it! Just moved to the community and it keeps me abreast of all the news and local happenings. Highly recommended.


What, no access to comments?  Cassyt  2 star

I know you rushed this app to market, but no access to view or leave a comment on the app? Crazy.

Cartel Fan

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.
