Asbury Park Press Reviews

Vmax Man

Liberal Rag  Vmax Man  1 star

After years of home delivery, I couldn't take it anymore. This has to be among the most biased rags, rivaling NYT for its liberal bias. Good bye!

Newspaper is way too liberal. It only gives one side. And it HATES Donald Trump whom 62 million people love and voted for. Can't read it anymore!

Good app for a great publication.  Greg from Eatontown  5 star



Ignores Notification Settings To Spam You  cmcintyre3600  2 star

This app has a settings panel that purports to allow you to tailor the push notifications you receive to your tastes. Interested in Entertainment but not Business? There are selectors for both! Unfortunately, this app ignores those preferences and spams you with a dozen or more random headlines throughout the day. For example, I have only Breaking News selected, and I just received a spammy push notification asking me to sign up for coverage of local High School football. 😡


Commercials  MACS.macs  1 star

Why do I have to listen to commercials when I pay for monthly subscription?


Local News  Crest5a  5 star

Best for Jersey news.


News flash  Lindajaye  5 star

I love the APP. I enjoy reading it whenever and wherever I am.

Don't bother  baldnbad  1 star

Poorly designed online newspaper. Awkward and cumbersome to use. Illogical grouping of modules. Impossible. Upgrade offered also fraught with bugs and glitches.


Frustrating  theclarks18  1 star

I actually prefer a hard copy of the newspaper. The delivery so so sporadic, I had to cancel it and switch to the app. The pop ups and poor design are a big issue. I would prefer the layout to be like a newspaper, but enhanced. Take a lesson from how great Golf Digest looks as an online magazine.


Hate this new app! Disneygirl  Brad240  1 star

And the news is only updated once a week, shows the same stories over and over again.


Hate the new update!!!  Suebeecat  1 star

Ugh! Why can't you leave well enough alone ! The old app was easy to maneuver around. If you wanted to find a section, you just scrolled down the list on the home page. Now I can't find anything! But it doesn't matter now because I'll most likely be unloading this app! I finally found obituaries down the bottom on a page, I don't remember how I got there though! This update is useless. Very happy ex APP app user!😡 PS Whoever edits the pages needs spellcheck! "Endorses" is spelled wrong in the headline!


New version stinks  Maxmax9919  1 star

Don't upgrade.. Now blasted with more ads


Great App, buenisima  Alhubalo  5 star

Keeps me informed with local news, and more not much to say just great app!!


App is as awful as the paper  Cheffed  2 star

Look the press is not a good paper so why bother with the app. Well if I'm out of town or I threw the paper out maybe I want to read something. Or if o want to see what people are saying g in the comment section. Worthless! I have to log in. Who cares. They should give this info away. I can't search for articles. Don't waste your time subscribing or downloading this app. Save your memory for candy crush or solitaire.


Like the App  recycledpet  4 star

Overall I like the app a lot. Great to read stories from back home. Sometimes it conks out a bit and doesn't 'fetch' the stories, so I have to reload. It would be nice to see classifieds on the app.


Sad  JMDlaptop  1 star

It is sad what Gannett has done to the Asbury Park Press. The app carries articles that at times are months old. The app on a regular basis does not load articles or content. Finding it difficult to maintain a subscription to this paper.


APP  Judymima  5 star

Was a Star Ledger reader for years. I have been disappointed lately with the shoddy way their reporting has been for awhile. I have switched over to APP and I am much happier with your style and internet page.
