Out of date technology
The technology used by the Dispatch is woefully out of date. The online/iPad version of the paper is terrible, and their customer service and billing processes are even worse.
I tried subscribing, but I could not get the iPad version to work. I called customer service and was told it would take at least 24 hours, perhaps longer, for my account to be activated. I then tried to cancel but was told I cannot cancel online, or by phone at this time - I need to wait five days and call back.
What century is this? In the rest of the digital media world, it's the 21st century. At the Columbus Dispatch, it's is still the 20th.
Great coverage of OSU sports. Quick, responsive an easy to navigate. It's my go to app. Good Work!
Leave it to a newspaper to update a phone app and have zero text describing what the update is for.
