This paper is my local evening paper and I used to buy it for many years.
Since the price went up and no extra added content, except on Saturday and an even higher cost. I have stopped buying it.

Now I get it for free on my Kindle :-)

Given the modern newspaper apps now available it is a great shame the Shropshire Star digital edition still smacks of a very early effort. When it works is is fine but too often it stalls for a day or two, especially at renewal time even if the renewal is automatic. The Star need to look at some of the other newspaper apps to see how it can be done.

We have had the Daily Mail & Shropshire Star delivered to our home over a number of years. The Daily Mail offer of a free Kindle HD Fire for a years subscription was very attractive and we like the format for reading it. We tried the Shropshire Star app on our new Kindles but the whole page format, expanded to reading size and then roaming the enlarged screen spoilt the enjoyment. For this reason we didn't convert our free trial into a subscription.

The print on this app is far to small and impossible to read, even when zoomed in. Therefore totally useless.
