Lacking features no search  GC37207  2 star

No way to get to e edition. No way to read comics. And no way to search for a story.

My Touchstone  Nashville Gary  4 star

I guess you can call me old fashioned but I still look forward to my Tennessean in both hard copy and online. When there is a big story breaking, the Tennessean online is the first copy I look for. You can bet I will follow it the rest of the day. Then the next morning I still want my morning paper at my door so I can start my day with the latest news. The Tennessean has some real professionals starting with David Plazas. I always enjoy reading articles by Dave Boucher, Getahn Ward, Ms Cheap, and others.



Enjoy the digital updates!

Staggeringly Bad...  webslog  1 star

...and just what you'd expect out of Gannett. The app fails at the one thing a news app should do ... auto-update and deliver news. Other than Top Stories (and what makes them Top Stories? Timeliness? Number of times the story's been read?) none of the other news feeds update regularly. Weather stories from June still appear. Reflective of Gannett's slipshod approach to local journalism in general. At this point, the only reason I still subscribe is for the Sunday crossword and because subscriber loss is what leads to reporters losing their jobs and the paper getting worse.


Very informative  TerapinTN  5 star

Great app! The push notifications gives me just the right amount of information for my day.
