Introducing the Democrat & Chronicle eNewspaper app, where you can read the Democrat & Chronicle on an iOS device with all the stories, photos and ads shown just as it appears in print. Readers can use their current account login to access current and back issues.
I am very upset about Gannett dropping the Dilbert comic. I feel this is just another example of limiting free speech. In my opinion, one’s right to to say what they want without fear of repercussion preempts one’s contrary beliefs as long as the statement is not threatening or a call for violence. The author’s comment was not in the comic and therefore should not have been a legitimate reason to withdraw the strip.
As cost to ride with paper delivery, and the Contant of the printed edition has shrunk, we find this a reasonable compromise. We wish there was more local reporting. Local reporting seems to have been scaled back and Local high school sports has been significantly scaled back in recent years. Duplication of national news in the national section and USA today insert has been frustrating. The web access gives us the ability to remain in touch with whatever local reporting might take place and its presentation in the appearance of the printed edition is helpful.
I have enjoyed reading your newspaper. I love that it is set up just like reading the print edition. Always good stories.
The D&C electronic edition has become on of the best information sources we have today.
Won't load this morning. Ongoing issue with this app. The developer really needs to get some better developers.
Although I still miss the paper newspaper, and the large format it provided (as opposed to my iPad’s much smaller screen), reading the paper on the D&C’s app is easy and offers the choice of seeing the stories as they were printed in the paper, or as transcripts in plain text.
Having a newspaper (and once upon a time TWO papers!) is a life-long habit for me. Your issues are getting smaller and smaller and not really worth your subscription prices, so specials on digital papers are a life saver! Don’t let those get out of sight, please….
Very seldom has glitches. I can easily print out what I want, for example a puzzle. Has editions from around the country, which I enjoy. Has extra content which I have not explored. I think one is online puzzles.
Could make downloading better. Spuratic problems.
I read the digital print addition. Old school, I guess. I read on an iPad Pro which is perfect for reading the paper. The biggest issue is the somewhat erratic behavior of the PDF when zooming in from the full page. The print and graphics refreshing to sharp readable form can be slow and non uniform. Most of a section will be fine, but a paragraph or two refuses to refine. Very annoying when that occurs. Editorially, way too much space given to sports, IMO. I know some can’t get enough. Any is too much for my tastes. I am devoted to the comics section. Used to be a full two pages, now it’s one. Be warned that if the comics disappear, so does my subscription. I get better “news” reporting from the NYT and WP, so the D&C is expendable if the comics go.
