Blame Gatehouse Media for the problems
Gatehouse Media is the worst thing that ever happened to The Columbus Dispatch. Editorially and journalistically, it’s still a great paper, but both the print and electronic versions have suffered from disastrous technical problems since the acquisition. Add to that the abysmal customer service department—you can’t even call and talk to a representative after noon (!)—and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to justify continuing my subscription. If it weren’t the only viable source for local news in Columbus (the TV stations’ web coverage is even spottier than their broadcasts), I’d have dropped my subscription long ago.
Like reading in a paper in a windstorm
I’m not sure what is wrong with this app that constantly causes content to jump around while scrolling through headlines. One second you see a story only to be whipped far down the screen. This leaves the user scrolling back up to find there previous place. Based upon my experience and other reviews, it seems that it’s time to hire a new developer.
Good content, awful app.
The way ads pop up makes the app practically unusable. It will pop up while you are reading a story or looking at the different articles available to read and all of a sudden the content in the article has moved causing you to have to go back up to find where you were.
