    This was a decent app now all you get is a picture of a dog from a Purina puppy chow as that intrudes on the articles you are reading about every 20 seconds or so, should not happen on a paid app.

  • Register Review

    By colahawk
    One of the best papers in the nation. Liked it better when Register was in morning and Tribune in evening

    This App is the worst newspaper app on my phone! I can’t enter the app even when I put in my email address & password. It says I have an account but it won’t me in unless I use Facebook. Finally I go the App Store daily & can read through the app in the App Store until I hit the limit for the app. Even when I attempt to sign in it won’t allow me full unlimited access despite being a delivery subscriber for a decade! I can read newspapers from around the world that I subscribe to, but not the Des Moines Register!
  • Please add a search function

    By degiowa
    This format lacks a search function. No matter how wonderfully you organize content, users still will want to search by keywords, too. Please add.
  • Online reading

    By Southern IA reader
    Having moved away from greater DSM, we read the register to keep up on those things of interest in the Central Iowa area. Most of the time it works great. The obituaries are often unreliable, however, in the way they present. If you choose to read one in full, you can't get back then to the list without going all the way back to the home screen and starting over. Sometimes it just locks up and you have to start over. The opinion section is often missing the Two Cents worth column, then a day later it shows up with two columns! Nothing is ever "perfect" for everyone, but we do appreciate your continued effort to improve our reading pleasure. Thank you.
  • Poor App

    By Tciowa
    This app is clumsy at best and keeps asking for renewal though I have done that—almost every time I log on. So, to read the articles, I have a 5 minute navigation through strange pages. Sometimes I don’t get on at all. I also am now being directed to Gannett since I also have another Gannett digital subscription. I think I get quicker information from Google so likely I’ll quit this subscription.
  • Sometimes

    Works great good reading but I have to sign in two to three times a week reminds me my trial is up I sign in again and goes away says I have full access but continues to count my articles does need work
  • Very Pleased with DR app & Format

    By Bentputter
    I feel that the app functions very well and the layout is user-friendly. I believe that the Des Moines Register provides a balanced format and that the articles or relevant nationally and locally.
