Great local news.  Fredad68  4 star

The daily roundup to prepare your day is great.

Works most of time  c6 4me  4 star

App works most of time. It's getting better sometimes slow in loading


Where's the news?  onemandog68  1 star

This paper once covered topics on local and national news in the app. Now you look at local hype and promotional events unless the national stories feeds "important" stories that will run everyone to read.(Like mass shootings, etc.). Otherwise, you will see before and after pictures..

SunDevil for Life

Outstanding  SunDevil for Life  5 star

Grew up in Phoenix but no longer live there. Great for keeping informed about local activities and sports teams!

Missing articles  Beach my  2 star

Same comment as May review. Missing articles on my iPad, but problem does not appear on my iPhone. Problem is on "Top Stories" page.


Review  Smtlez  5 star

Great app. Love receiving current event notifications


Not loading all top stories  Ediegourmet  1 star

I'm having the same issue as others with the app not loading fully. I take this to mean that they are throttling our ability to read even just the Top Stories. Guess this is goodbye Azcentral. I'll get my Arizona news someplace else.


Lower 2/3 articles missing  Nnnnnmmmmmmmmm  1 star

Starting a couple weeks ago the bottom 2/3 of the articles are not visible. Just a blank square where each article should be. The articles on the top third of the page are fine, but when you scroll down they are blank. I have deleted and reloaded but it still has the same issue.


Fix Needed  Beezer2010  1 star

The app currently only displays articles on the first screen, scroll down and it's ALL blank.

Az golf

Pretty much useless now  Az golf  1 star

I get a couple rows of stories and then nothing but blanks.

Always informed  LAFScrapFanatic  5 star

I love AZ Central. The notifications I receive are real time giving me the news I need when I need it!


Nothing to complain about  Niteflyer1  5 star

It's easy to navigate, well organized by content, and never has issues. 5 star product.


Hard to use due to all the adds  mrb2040  1 star

I pay $35 a month for print and subscription to this app and yet I still get full screen adds whenever you click on an article that I can't close because half of the time I cant scroll up to reach the x to close them. Have to force app to close and restart. If I could just buy print version I would as this app is worthless and so I now use other local news sites. Don't waste you time.

Good local coverage. Go to for sports.

Jazz 2498

It's not bad  Jazz 2498  4 star

It gets the job done of informing you of what is going on in Arizona and it wasn't too expensive. I think there is a lag though between the newest articles and them appearing on the app. I wish they fix it.


Great app. Good local news coverage.  Azhwymn  5 star

I finally let my paper copy subscription expire. $10 per month for the digital paper ($0.33/day) is a great price for good local news, beats reading personal blogs for "news".

Mr. Chubby

Great News Site!  Mr. Chubby  5 star

Fantastic breaking news and outstanding in-depth investigations! Laurie Roberts and Dan Bickley are must read columns. Dennis Wagner is clearly one of the best and brightest journalists in the state. His VA coverage was second to none.


Huge disappointment!  TetaKnits  1 star

I can no longer get any local news without paying $9.99 a month! What a ripoff!!


Good paper  Normanj4  4 star

Good local coverage.

St ridge runner

Az central, good info  St ridge runner  5 star

Good publication. Easy to navigate on line, good current updated news. But sometimes will not allow "free" access.
