Update - A "Go-To" News Source

I wrote a review 3 years ago for this app, (See below). And in the intervening period they continue to make improvements and enhancements. It is my go-to source for Utah and Mountain West news, but they are also a good source for breaking and key US news as well. If I were allowed only one news source (not likely unless the president shuts down every news outlet he hates) it would be this Deseret News app. Bookmark it. Put it on your home page. "SCA" it. (Single Click Access).


I have lived all around the United States (in 9 different states to be exact) and have sampled local and national news in a variety of formats during those 30+ years. The Deseret News electronic edition is one of the top few in content, design and delivery. And it keeps getting better. I wouldn't be surprised to find it in the top 5 nationally in a variety of categories. I wouldn't let its geographical location keep it from becoming a regular read for individuals regardless of location or persuasion.

Logging In/Buyist Opinions

So first of all, I open the app, keep in mind I have never had problems with it before and it crashes, I didn’t think anything of it and I check my WiFi to go back in. As I try to log in the entire app keeps crashing! I have never had a problem with my WiFi I even checked it multiple times, but this honestly was ridiculous. This started about a week ago as-well so it was kind of annoying to have it not work.
As for their buyers opinions they are incredibly bad. You might be asking why I downloaded the app if I knew this was gonna happen and to be honest, I didn’t. I always used the news in the morning just to see what’s going on in the world, but everything at Fox has been escalating really quickly and they are BIG trump supporters. So be that as it may, they are showing pictures and clips of protests (which are SAFE because I have been to a few and everyone has a mask and gloves) saying that all of the black people are incredibly violent which isn’t true at all. Also saying that protesters are killing the earth because we aren’t at home.
This honestly isn’t a good news app at the moment, please try looking somewhere else for something better because it’s incredibly sad to see all of this going on.

Good reporting and writing

I love the in-depth reporting on substantive issues; it is important that in the media, there is a voice like the Deseret News, shedding light and a correct perspective.

I also appreciate the thoughtful analysis from the editorial team. So many papers and news outlets post knee-jerk stories to complex problems and incite greater calamity that the original issue should have created. A stable and calm-headed voice like the Deseret News is needed.

I would like the DN to include the option to comment on articles from within the app, instead of on social media.
