Columbus Dispatch App Reviews

  • Unable to log in

    By Jmcgurer
    I’m sure that the cost of my subscription includes the e-edition which is IMPOSSIBLE to access. Password resets are IMPOSSIBLE. Fix this.
  • Worst app ever

    By deanh54
    I have trouble opening this app every month right after they transfer my payment. I have to either call or reinstall the app then they make you pay extra for Buckeye sports coverage.
  • Poor application

    By columbus dispatch reader
    Ads cause the articles to jump as you scroll causing you to repeatedly lose place. The login expires every month or so and you have to delete the app completely from your mobile device and reinstall and enter login credentials. Very poor app in general.
  • Terrible interface and no search

    By SCLEV99
    How does an app like this not have a search?
  • Rip off!!!

    By DrTTurp
    I paid for a one year subscription, and the app doesn’t recognize it. It keeps asking me to pay for another subscription!
  • Horrible App, Bad Stories

    By AstroGirlBunny
    I downloaded the app but there was no search feature. First fail. I finally found the article I was looking for. It was utterly useless and misleading as it provided less than nothing. Second fail. I would imagine the paper itself is not doing well. The app alone is not great. But bad material just makes this a total fail on every level. Who puts the title "Stargazing apps can help bring the universe to your smartphone" then tells the reader to go into the Google search engine and do a search on "stargazing apps". I'm an astronomer and know this isn't even helpful advice to the average person. The rest of the article was no better. The writer was beyond lazy. But I give this app four stars because it has no search feature, no Science section, no ability to comment on articles, and overall a very crappy app.
  • Worst News App

    By ABCThree Little Ladies
    This app is awful. Constantly have to enter my username and password. The Latest Headlines jumps around more than House of Pain Jump Around. The e-edition always crashes. For those who want news electronically, don’t come here. A rating of one star is a gift. When you can read them, the articles are great to read.
  • I pay for digital subscription but no app access

    By td614
    As the title says. I now have to pay over $90 a yr MORE for app only access only?!? The news isn’t worth it. DL the nbc4i app instead, free and better news. Print is dead and the Dispatch is proving the theory.
  • Improved over the former Dispatch

    By 1945Bob
    We both like to read the Dispatch, and have a daily print subscription. We read it daily online when on our world travels. The new management is more willing to issue forceful editorials (though the editorial cartoons at times are inconsistent). I’d rather not get $9 deducted from my subscription length for special sections, but overall feel I get good value for the cost. They hold local politicians’ feet to the fire for users like charter school scandals.
  • Truly AWFUL App And Tech Support

    By schlimo
    I am a digital subscriber. Half the time the app tells me that “my quota” of articles read has been reached!!! No one answers the help line even though the voicemail prompt tells the caller,”Please wait until the next support person comes on the line.” Hint: they never do. Like the previous writer, I would have dumped them months ago were it not the only source of local news. I still may dump them. This is completely unacceptable service. Sloppy, inattentive, and BAD business practice.
