Local- Fix your login loop!
The contact is great if you can access it!

I have just been using just the web browser for the Local which now has this ridiculous loop of logging me out. Whenever I try to read an article, I get a pop-up that requires me to login so I click for it to send myself an email link to login and the process just repeats over and over again and I can’t read any articles even though it says I am logged in! So I downloaded the app thinking maybe that would help the situation but it’s the same problem! Until this is fixed, I am canceling my subscription.

Not compatible with IPad
I thought a news app would be the most compatible app on any apple device because it is just simply reading digital articles, kinda what an IPad was made for… The second I downloaded and opened it on my iPad I deleted it immediately after. I would be happy to see the local on Apple News or a better digital news service. I additionally would be much more inclined to purchase Apple news subscription to read the local. I see the headlines of the articles and want to read them so bad, but then a paywall comes up. So I was about to cave in and pay but again the IPad app was not formatted for an iPad so I gave up.

Brock Fisher
Good Information. Terrible App.
I believe that The Local must spend all of their money on reporting the news and none of their money on their app. It functions only as a web browser. No saving of stories. No search function. You are better off using your mobile browser-even with a paid subscription. Don’t bother with this app.
