One small issue

There doesn’t seem to be a place to sign on if already a subscriber, which I am. It did appear a couple of times, but all I see now is a request to subscribe.

Decent app, but journalism needs improvement

The app is intuitive and useful. However, The Desert Sun’s journalist writing style is occasionally grammatically incorrect, and articles that provide updates to oft-covered topics never include a backstory paragraph to help the reader understand context and history. And, the photos and videos placed at the top of each article often have nothing to do with the article’s content; in some cases, it has been seriously misleading and irresponsible. For example, when a restaurant in Palm Springs closed suddenly, the photo was of a completely different restaurant. I have complained to the Desert Sun repeatedly about this and have never received any response.

App doesn’t allow subscriber access to content

I am continually frustrated by being blocked from viewing/reading content - despite being logged onto my account I keep getting pages that say I must be a subscriber to read the rest of the article.
