    Lots of stories covering events when they happen and not enough communication of upcoming events and activities to do in this county.
  • Cannot bookmark articles

    Update April 2018 - issue with bookmarks still not fixed, even after latest update. Seriously? --------------- 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.

    This no longer looks and feels like a newspaper. Dump it.
  • Good local and national news

    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.

    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?

    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!
  • Dropping from 4 to 1 star

    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.

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