  • App

    By Don in IA
    I am disappointed with the Des Moines Register online newspaper. I haver seen other newspaper online Apps. That offer the paper as it appears in printed copy and it is much more like actually reading the paper. You can still isolate individual stories, photos, cartoons, etc. The paper that I am familiar with is the Salt Lake Tribune. In it, the full paper option costs the reader slightly more than that offered by the Register, but is, in my opinion, much more readable. Don Smith
  • Good app, but...

    The back end server will not allow you to login to view articles unless you purchased a digital subscription through iTunes.
  • Online reading

    By Southern IA reader
    Last weeks update has made the app nearly unusable on my iPad. Most all of the sports articles will open, news articles, opinions and most else will not open. It acts like the links are broken. I've removed and reinstalled the app, but it didn't help. Customer support had me change my password so she could see what I was seeing, but that did nothing. This problem doesn't seem to be affecting the android device!
  • All Sports All the Time

    By Erb178
    This app consistently features sports stories over actual news stories. The notifications are horrible, too. I haven’t found a setting that doesn’t send 5+ pointless “breaking news” stories a day- most of which are (surprise!) sports stories.

    Thanks for this article Black And whites smoke Marijuana at the same rate African-Americans are incarcerated more than whites .

    Fact check on Kim Reynolds campaign ad claiming Iowa that under her admin Iowa has been among the nation’s leaders in personal income growth. Actually, Iowa has had negative growth in personal income for the last two years. Also ads against Cindy Axne in another race claim she “supports criminal aliens” This is ridiculous and simply untrue!
  • New tactics to get money out of you

    By Larsj4880
    I hate the new tactic of only letting you read a few paragraphs of story and the demanding $5 a month to read the rest! Oh, you still have to deal with all the ads, but they want your money. It’s amazing other media outlets can provide top stories for free, but the USA Today rag wants more money. About to delete this app!
  • A Video Based App at Best

    By Bigtenfbfan
    Convoluted, not user friendly, little writing of merit. Primarily a video app for advertising.
  • Page crashes when video is embedded in article

    By Klahsen1111
    The videos are fine when that's all that shows, but when the video is included with other content, the page freezes when the whole article loads and the play icon shows on the video.
  • Obnoxious

    By JustinOmaha
    Whoever controls the notifications needs to understand the difference between “breaking news” and every story they post on social media. As a new resident to Des Moines, I was very excited to see the app had the option to select which notifications you’d like, but they obviously don’t honor your request.
