  • Good local and national news

    By Trikerpc
    Since moving to Ventura from Los Angeles we have enjoyed getting local news through the Ventura Star. While more conservative leaning than I enjoy they do provide the local news in a through manner.
  • Best Source

    Love having VC Star on my phone. Reliable and informative for me to know what is happening around my beloved VC home turf, and who’s gettin ‘er done!

    We have lived in Ventura County since 1979, that was the year Johnny Carson said if it snows in Malibu I’ll sign a contact for four more years (and it did).
  • Why isn't local news updated?

    By CB7580
    The Home Page seems to have much of the current news information. But the local sections have not been updated in five to six months. It's been like this for a long time. My App is the latest version, so someone needs to look at this ASAP!
  • Cannot bookmark articles

    By M_bearwoman
    Since Sept update, articles cannot be bookmarked in the app. Reported this, received email 'we are aware,' but after several more updates, it still doesn't work. I won't update my other Gannet newspaper app (Milwaukee journal) in fear of also losing ability to bookmark stories.
  • Dropping from 4 to 1 star

    By MCRider!!!!!!!!!
    1st review: The app has improved. It's functional for a quick slam bam on local happenings. However, it has an unfinished, "truncated" feel overall. It'll do for now... but keep working on improvements. 2nd: Dropping review to one star because many of the accompanying videos are deceptive. Example: Along with an article about a structure fire there is a video with an image that matches the headline. When you click on the video you have to watch a 15 second commercial- which I understand. But when the actual video comes on it is a fluff piece completely unrelated to the headline. What a waste of time.
  • Local news a priority

    The Star's app is great. Local news is given top priority. I like that.
  • Great App

  • The best newspaper

    By KkRisy K
    The best newspaper for local and national news because there is comprehensive reporting and the video footage and podcasts are all newsworthy.
  • Too much pop up trash

    By Nawatl
    This no longer looks and feels like a newspaper. Dump it.
