    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.

    Moved to Palm Desert, and reading The Desert Sun acquaints me with many aspects of the local lifestyles. Like The desert Sun for breaking news and valley news.
  • 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.
  • Good basic app

    It’s a pretty good app, but annoying that they leave items for weeks at the top of the section as opposed to putting latest news on the top of each section. Makes you feel like nobody has anything new to report.
  • Nice way to keep in touch
