Get with it Dispatch
This app has never been what you could call “with it”. Always has been old school. Who is in charge of the design/updating this thing? Newest “improvements” for this paid subscription for a publication with tons of print ads is a banner ad that once in a while fires up a video randomly. How nice! And then you get to log in every day, have the screen lock up and then have to reopen the app.
Well done Dispatch; continue operating in the stone age and frustrate paying subscribers trying to operate in current day methods. Please get this fixed!
Agree with others; if I could give it a 0 or negative rating I would. Time to fire whomever is responsible for your app development. Hey, since Urban Meyer is such a god in Columbus maybe he can figure this out; he’s looking for something to do now!
Improved, but for how long.
Could it be you are listening and taking action on our complaints? It seems like it and if so thank you. I really have few issues with the e-edition. Every once and while I would have to sign back in but that has happened with other apps as well. Overall it seems like a pretty stable app, at least for me. Like others, what I went on a diatribe about were changes made that actually took away screen space. First you added extra tool bars we didn’t need. Then you add scrolling ads across the top. I like many others complained that this was completely unacceptable for an app that we have to subscribe too and is half full of ads as it is. You seemed to have listened again. Jan 1 when I opened the e-edition the ads were gone. I hope you didn’t just pull them for some technical reason and plan on putting them back in the future. I guarantee the day that happens my subscription will be canceled.
All progress means change
But, not all change is progress and that is proven by the latest so-called updates to this app. I figured I'd eventually become used to and familiar with the changes but two are just annoying. First, how do I get rid of the constantly scrolling 'Latest News' on the left side of the screen. There used to be an X and then the word 'Hide' that let me remove it but those are no longer available. Second, there is no longer a menu (that I have found) to jump from one section of the paper to another. Now, there's just the pop-up scroll at the bottom of the screen. Again, all progress means change but not all change means progress.
