  • Good app with a few fixable problems

    By Soduku Blaster
    The Democrat and Chronicle is the best source of local news in the Rochester area. I enjoy reading stories by Leo Roth, Sal Maiorana, and David Andreatta. However there are a few things that can be improved. For some reason stories about the Buffalo Bills more than a year old are still appearing at the top of the Bills news feed. This forces me to scroll to the bottom to see the most recent news. I submitted a request to fix this and I never heard back. The D and C is is using more video. Unfortunately this forces the reader to watch a 15 second ad every time you click on a short video. Some of the “videos” contain only text, almost like watching a Power Point slide show. I can tolerate the 15 second ad before a real video (I know ads support the business). But don’t make me watch an ad just to see me a slide show containing only text.
  • No search feature = information suppression

    By NadaGamer
    The lack of a search feature let's USA Today and the Democrat & Chronicle bury unpopular news stories. The new version continues the lack of a search feature. I’m proud to subscribe to the D&C, as local reporting is critical to democracy, but the inability to track down that reporting is ethically questionable.
  • Great local news!

    By USA! USA!
    Strong team of reporters and editors doing great work to tell Rochester's story.
  • In-depth Local News Stories

    By BVTNY
    Our region's TV stations just skim the surface of local news. I'm glad the D&C takes the time to thoroughly research and report local news stories.
  • Thumbs up for local news

    By 4Papa3
    I am most appreciative of access to local news and sports. Most articles are informative and well written. Although I still like "feeling" a newspaper, this is a great complement to other online national apps. Thank you!
  • Ignores and bypasses notification settings

    By pkin
    Great to have a decent app for our local paper. Great news coverage, including investigative team. But for the App: I like to be able to customize notifications for breaking news. I have mine set to notify for NEWS ONLY, no sports, nothing else. But still get several "breaking news" alerts every week for players questionable to play for the Bills due to such things as wonky ankles. This is not news, people, this is sports.
  • Great for Top Stories and Updates

    By Mindmovesbody
    I like being able to catch up on current events on the go. I love the Top Stories and having the updates that pop up in notification form are helpful as well. They keep me up to date.
  • Obits are NG

    By Jack and Meg
    The main reason I have this app is to keep track of Rochester area obits. I find that whenever I call for the obits by location the screen goes white, the loading icon spins and the screen never returns. John Radley
