Columbus Dispatch E-Edition

By GateHouse Media, Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


The Columbus Dispatch iPad Edition keeps the design and flow of the print edition intact!
Subscribe, and you can download an exact replica of The Dispatch— including every page, story, photo and ad — each morning.

The Dispatch iPad Edition is perfect for travelers, Central Ohioans who have moved out of the area (like college students and snowbirds), or anyone who wants to take the paper with them every morning.

What In It For You? Here's just some of what’s great about the iPad Edition of the publication named the state's Best Newspaper by the Associated Press Society of Ohio in 2009 and 2010:

• It's quick to download and you can begin reading the front page while the rest of the newspaper downloads in the background
• The toolbar allows you to easily jump around from section to section, bookmark stories, make a full search of the paper and more
• You can read stories on the page (as you would the print edition), tap once to enlarge and tap twice for a special “story view”
• Tapping a story’s “jump line” takes you directly to its continuation
• You can easily share stories via email and popular social networks
• Websites and email addresses mentioned in stories and ads are hot-linked
• You can hang on to each paper for as long as you'd like — or delete it right after you're done
• You'll help the environment by saving on paper

The Dispatch iPad app is free to download, and all Digital D Total Access subscribers will have unlimited access to the iPad Edition. Just log on with your Dispatch username and password.

If you’re not a Digital D Total Access subscriber, you will need to purchase a monthly iPad Edition subscription.

Customer Reviews

Great App

This is an undeniably great App. Reliability has been great while on vacation. Paper downloads just like printed edition. Easy to follow and easy to read articles that you choose to read. Works very well on iPad. Can print out crossword puzzle or any other feature that is desired. Good way to keep up with Columbus news! Much better than going to web site.

Love app

Well, I initially gave this a bad review because I downloaded and could not open. However, once I opened I loved it! I'm 60 years old, love technology and stay current, but also like the traditional layout. As for paying, if it's a quality product, and priced right I'll pay - they have to make a living! Please fix the connection bug though.


App doesn't refresh the newest edition reliably. I've deleted and reinstalled 3 times in the last 10 days. This morning, nothing works. Cannot reinstall because the app keeps flashing an error message saying my internet connection is poor. Seems good enough to let me read all other apps and to write this review. So disappointed that when I finally decided to go e-edition only, this is what I'm stuck with.
