  • Zoom settings

    The old app was much easier to read the e-newspaper. The zoom settings make it difficult to read one page at a time full sized. Please fix this.
  • Scroll with finger drag needs work

    By passwood dude
    The app is great with content and good with presentation, however the finger drag to scroll is does not work all the time. I have a 10th gen iPad with magic keyboard that works on every other app but this one. Fix it and the App would be 5 star

    Great local paper. Should publish more to counter the plans of MAGA Republicans to overthrow the Constitution in order to save US Democracy
  • “updated” app is terrible

    By CeeStor
    Since we have to use the app at a minimum on Saturday and on other days when our delivery may not show until 10, please fix this supposed “updated” app. It’s buggy, hard to navigate. Awful!
  • Bring Back e-edition app

    By Cwps
    I read the paper newspaper daily -but delivery has become unreliable. On the days when the paper isn’t delivered, I am forced to read the e-edition. Now, you have taken away the e-edition app and replaced it with this monstrosity. Single tap, double tap, articles don’t resize. Ads float down over articles and then you can’t get back to the article. Additionally, I read the e-edition in landscape mode on an iPad. The new app does not allow the double page spread to fill the screen. It is a tiny representation—almost unreadable— of the double spread centered on the screen. If your readers are opting for the e-edition rather than your other format, wouldn’t you think that they would want to read the paper as a double spread in landscape format? You complain that you are losing readers?! This app makes the paper almost unreadable. I used to look forward to reading the paper with my coffee in the morning….now reading the Desert Sun has turned into a nightmare.
  • Great for local news

    By Philliefanatic 235
    Quality reporting on local area news
  • Ads annoying

    By PNW Weather Dog
    The app is balky.
  • Terrible to try to read

    By Kristi54
    Your e- reader is terrible. It doesn’t fit the screen and won’t enlarge. Bring back you Print Edition app. So much better.

    The app is useless, I suggest not downloading seems to nothing but solicit purchases and subscriptions.
  • Problem with format change

    By Low vision reader
    The presentation format has changed so that I can no longer swipe pages side to side and cannot spread the text large enough for me to read with limited vision.
