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.
WHERE IS THE NEWS FOR TODAY?
This app used to be a 5 because it was a very easy to read e edition of the paper. NOW you can’t find the most basic of stories from today’s news. No national stories. No national sports. What happened in college football games yesterday. This is November 24. On the Top Stories page, there’s a MLB score from October 30. Did you change the app and put no one in charge of making sure all the news is there? HELP
Best desert news media in the valley
I love the Desert Sun. It’s very well written and informative - much better than most Coachella Valley news media. My only complaint is trying to login after I bought a subscription- it really should be quite simple, but someone has managed to make it so bad that I may not renew my subscription.
