Ratings and Reviews
Having moved away from greater DSM, we read the register to keep up on those things of interest in the Central Iowa area. Most of the time it works great. The obituaries are often unreliable, however, in the way they present. If you choose to read one in full, you can't get back then to the list without going all the way back to the home screen and starting over. Sometimes it just locks up and you have to start over. The opinion section is often missing the Two Cents worth column, then a day later it shows up with two columns! Nothing is ever "perfect" for everyone, but we do appreciate your continued effort to improve our reading pleasure. Thank you.
This app is awful. It doesn’t work well with a password protection program. When I log on through my password protection program, it takes me to the manage account section. If I click on the register link at the the top of that section, it brings up news from multiple dates and doesn’t even have the date at the top of the story. And sometimes I get to a place where I am asked to log in again. I want to read today’s paper! I want to have one log in place that gives links to today’s paper, archives and search, and subscription management,

This App is the worst newspaper app on my phone! I can’t enter the app even when I put in my email address & password. It says I have an account but it won’t me in unless I use Facebook. Finally I go the App Store daily & can read through the app in the App Store until I hit the limit for the app. Even when I attempt to sign in it won’t allow me full unlimited access despite being a delivery subscriber for a decade! I can read newspapers from around the world that I subscribe to, but not the Des Moines Register!
