Every Morning

I like the e-edition of the dispatch. Provides me the convenience of electronic access but a familiar analog format. Even there I get a format that looks analogue but as I select articles the format changes to expand the article and make it easy to read. This is a 4.5 star rating. The Dispatch continues to tweak here and there to improve stability and if you select an article via a cont…page you don’t see the full article, just the part that was put on another e-page. Not a big deal but needs correct. I start my day as I have for many years, opening up the paper on my tablet though instead of reaching for the paper on the front porch. I will say that with the digital subscription I also get access to the mobile application and get breaking news throughout the day. Good value!

Keeping Up With the Dispatch from Afar

We subscribed to the printed Dispatch for well over 25 years. (Back when there were two newspapers, it was not our newspaper of choice.) Recently, we moved to Israel, so we have become an E-only family as far as Columbus newspapers go. I enjoy the daily paper on my Tel Aviv balcony, and the Dispatch is available way earlier than the today’s edition of the New York Times, which is significant and as much as we are now seven hours ahead of Columbus.

My only criticism is that when I get to the bottom of the page and swipe to the next page, I think it would be better if the app would take me to the top of the next page rather than the bottom. Perhaps this will be a later update and how the app functions.

It used to work, but the newest version does not. It simply doesn’t.

We have subscribed to the Dispatch since moving to Columbus in 1983, both print, and when it became available, online. We have had occasional difficulties with the e-edition app, but nothing like for the past month, when nothing works.

We have called repeatedly, to no avail. Our account is filled with funds, we are getting the print edition, and we can login through a browser and get a poor version of the paper with no ability to email articles or print articles (or crosswords!) It just doesn’t work, and no one at the Dispatch or service company has any ability to answer or fix it.

We simply get a message that says to call them about our account, which we have done. Oh, and we also get a message every couple weeks that has our correct home address in Columbus except that it has our country as Mexico, where we have never been. Repeated calls have apparently fixed that, but not the app access!

A terrible waste of our time.
