The Courier-Journal Reviews


Easy to Use App  Janelarsonross  5 star

I find the CJ app great when I am away from my paper copy. The update alerts let me know what is happening in Louisville.


Timely Updates  KentuckyNewsman  4 star

Perhaps the best thing about this C-J service is the timely news updates. Certainly the news gathering/reporting business is constantly changing. Glad to see the C-J evolve and remain meaningful.


CJ App  48ccuxyc8992  4 star

Enjoy text updates on current events and option of opening article to read further. I most enjoy e-edition of paper. Like all the extras of app.


Rick Dickman  Trick0  5 star

It gives what it's supposed to. Overview and headlines. You can dig into it. But best if you subscribe.


Terrific  KG19762007  5 star

Needs work.  Ky Charlie  2 star

When a friend sends me a link to one of the CJ's excellent stories, really top-notch reporters, I have to go through a number of steps, and THEN still look


Keeps me totally in the know!  MissyRowe  5 star

Sadly, with the demise of the daily newspaper (say it isn't so!), this app is timely and locally informative-as well as nationally and globally-this app and the ABC news app are all I need to stay informed up to the minute. Great for weather as well. RIP, daily newspaper-you were awesome for that era in time!

Packer Chezhd

Delivery Quality  Packer Chezhd  3 star

The paper in itself is a nice paper. Pretty good articles and layout for the most part is good. Delivery issues, no paper or wet paper not placed in a good spot and gets wet. Sometimes it's only one plastic cover or sometimes two, still gets wet. It is mostly thrown on our driveway right where most of run off water from a rain storm runs and seeps in the plastic covers and we have a wet paper. The cj app seems to have s few bugs


Bad  ArtHarmony  1 star

Hard to use. No way to contact the Company, obviously do not value Subscribers. Another decline for a formerly great paper.

Great coverage.


App Will Not Install  catknox  1 star

Tried multiple times to load on iPhone 6 with large memory, downloads but will not install. Had same problem with USAToday app a few weeks ago. Obviously a Gannett problem!


CJ app still has lots of bugs  Josephriver  2 star

The app by the Courier-Journal still has a lot of bugs. The app has trouble loading on numerous occasions and usually requires me to attempt to load it two to three times. The content is not normally uploaded as quick as the website. Overall, the app still needs a lot of improvement.


Sports are NOT Breaking News!  OrganicNatalie  1 star

I have the Manage Alerts setting set to only send Breaking News. I have Sports turned off...and yet the majority of the notifications I receive are quarterly updates of EVERY UK and UL. This is NOT "Breaking News!"


Search Bar  Abacogirl  1 star

There's not a search button to view previous articles?


Honest news  Jayhawk1976  5 star

Appreciate having objective fact based perspective of up to date issues.
