  • Great way to keep up with our local news!

    By Hersheymon
    I am enjoying this app very much. I like the full edition on my iPad. I get notifications of top stories and it's easy going right to them and reading what articles I want, including back editions. Have loved being able to keep up with news back home, as we have been traveling cross country. And no need to go out to get the newspaper in the rain!
  • Great option

    By Bigla125
    Originally gave it 5 star but lately when I go to app, it's old news that has been on for days and features like current Answer Man are not available . Have become very disappointed. Excellent option when I can't read the full version on my laptop.
  • Great local newspaper

    By BenMSU
    The CT covers the issues that matter in Western North Carolina. The app makes it easy for subscribers to read it!
  • Crap, just crap

    By Brassfrog
    The TV weekly says there additional TV listings to make up for the hugely under-reported printed listings, but there aren't any to be found.
  • Big improvement

    By Papoosey
    Have been using for a few months and find this a huge step forward over the old app. I would like to see the feature whereby we can view news from up to 5 other local Gannett papers extended to desktop.
  • Needs Search Function

    The app is clean and presents the news in an appealing fashion. I especially like the alert function when breaking stories are added. I do think it needs a search function to be able to get to a story quickly.
  • Decent App. Quality Content

    By Dman1224
    Yep, it's a newspaper app. I open it and it presents local news. A crowning achievement of modern software engineering.
  • It's a better source for local news than the tv station

    By Coop917
    The AC-T isn't the best paper I've read but as far as local news it's hard to beat. The app helps me keep up when I'm not home.
  • Perfect Fit!

    By BillAfloat
    When I lived in Key West we affectionately called the KW Citizen the "mullet wrapper." So I'm gonna affectionately call the AVL Citizen-Times the "trout wrapper!" Like the mullet wrapper, it's a great local paper and always entertaining! And, I suspect that unlike the KW Citizen, the AVL Citizen- Times app actually works!
  • Junk Paper

    By bobusar
    They do not care about the community. Their only interested in profit in their pockets. Waste of your money. If you every have a delivery problem, forget about getting your paper delivered quietly or correctly. The have zero respect for the people they claim to serve!!!
