Reviews

Most sluggish app ever

1
Very awkward to use. I hope they didn't pay too much for this. Freezes up almost routinely. Difficult to bring up and isolate an article, tapping the article works sometimes but not faithfully. Who ever owns the Dispatch now surely can do better.

Sorry but this app stinks

1
I’m a subscriber and thought having this app would be good. Wrong!! Wouldn’t let me login. One star is too many.

Not very good

1
Compared to the apps for the Economist, WSJ, and the NYT this app is not good at all. These organizations have set the standard for digital apps The use of pictures makes it difficult to view the summary page for each section The load time to move between sections is slow

Bad initial impressions

1
Just switched from paper to electronic delivery because of massive price differential. Downloaded app to see difference from web version. Clicked e-edition, app crashes. Restarted and tried to log in, app crashes. Running an old iPad so OS is maxed out at iOS9, but if that is the issue then Gatehouse needs to mark iOS9 as incompatible.

Terrible app - not digital subscriber friendly

1
This app is terrible!! I am a subscriber to both print and e-addition but the app never remembers that at all. Very antiquated - especially for a media outlet.

Terrible design terrible tools

1
The app has terrible layout. Is hard to read or manage changing between articles. Is ad heavy and the ads aren’t even designed to integrate with the layout of the app. Just pulled google column ads shoehorned into a mobile display. Really a poor poor piece.

Cancel

1
I never look at the Columbus dispatch, have tried to cancel it over and over again and keep getting charged for it! I don’t know how to stop it! It will cost me 35 bucks thru my bank to stop payment!

Avoid

1
Was once a good paper, now a liberal rag. I cancelled because Im tired of them putting latimes, nytimes - lib msm content on front page for national stories - thats what associated press is for! Anyways I ended up having to file a atty general complaint because they make it impossible to cancel. Buyer beware.

Worst App

1
The Dispatch app is the worst I’ve ever used. I have to delete and re-install it every time I use it. Why won’t you do something about this? I’m almost done with you.

Terrible

1
The Nov 6, 2019 update has rendered the e-edition suddenly useless. Upon hitting the menu tab for e-edition, it comes up to the front page and in 2 seconds shuts the app down and disappears. Rebooting didn't help, the problem came from the update - please fix! On the days my hard-copy paper is late (regularly), and I'm running out of time I rely on the e-edition. PLEASE HELP!
