What's New in Version 4.2.4
Here’s what’s new in the Deseret News app:
Periodically throughout its 165-year history, the Deseret News has included a beehive along with the newspaper’s logo on the front page. The beehive was a symbol of hard work and industriousness to Utah's pioneers and continues to be visible across the state.
In honor of that heritage, the Deseret News launches with this update a new app icon that features an updated version of the Beehive state’s classic symbol.
The new design should help you quickly find the Deseret News among your other favorite apps!

The DN app is actually a lot less complicated than those of other news organizations. It is easy to navigate and I appreciate that I don't have to waste time looking for articles I nay have missed or want to come back to, a day or two later.
If you want to know what is happening in Utah, this is the news to follow. It is updated through the day. More importantly, it is a reliable source. There is minimal bias and spin in straight news, and articles do not waste time explaining the obvious (for the most part). Some articles are better than others, with occasional lapses in information verification: but I have only found that in general interest, not the news. The human interest pieces are a little too "Happy Valley": far better than the pervasive pessimism in the big chain news sources.
They also provide three faith sections (faith, Mormon Times, Church news). Those do not tend to be expansive; but they are redundant. Good information can be had if you read carefully.
Not too Bad
Overall, not a bad news site for Utah-based information. Decent articles that are generally written well, though there's room to improve there. Articles of importance appear in a timely manner. However, the layout of the site is such that old stories seem to linger on the home page forever. Further, for every "normal" article there seems to be another ten that all revolve around sports. Even worse, those sports articles all repeat the same story - as if different writers are covering the same story but no one bothered to let either of them know. At least I can be assured of getting the full BYU sports picture when browsing for more relevant information on the site.
Deseret News App
The obituaries were added to the site. The news is updated regularly and the app is user friendly. The DN is current, relevant and a good source of Utah news and information along with world news too. Even though I don't subscribe to the paper, the free news provides all the news I want. After I return to the states I will subscribe to the e-print edition. I love the local news and features. There are enough sources out there to access world and national news, even though Deseret News supplies this.
