  • An idiot

    By one of many americans
    Uses too many of the same characters to post the same information. Everyone gets it. Yawn.
  • CYclone Football

    By phopfer
    Depend on Randy Peterson's views, analysis, and reporting of all things Cyclone! He is simply the best!
  • Easy access to news, sports and stories of local interest

    By BassCanary
    The app provides clear headlines to breaking stories, editorial content and stories relevant to our state and local governments as well as our schools. It’s convenient to access the Register electronically at any time and any where!
  • Extremely difficult to log in when credentials change.

    By frustrated in dsm
    Poor app design makes logging in impossible when receiving an invite from another subscriber. I’ll just get my news from CNN.
  • Obituary

    By franksrbadesmoines
    What happened to the current day obituaries? Really don’t like the new format. Is there another source for them?
  • Poor

    What happened to the obit files? Can’t see the current ones anymore.
  • Works but repetitive

    By milk for the morning cakes
    The DSM Register app gets me where I want to go but then shows me the same news stories I saw yesterday, interspersed with too many repetitions of the same ad.
  • Surprised

    By Lillie0415
    Relocating from out of state I am shocked to find the Register so radical left wing.
  • Awful

    By ForTheCommonGood
    This is truly one of the five worst app experiences I have ever had. I want to support the press but this level of incompetence is off the charts. This app can’t keep an identity straight from day to day.
  • Could be so much better

    By Jarik12
    I love having digital access to the local newspaper. I do not love the format of that access. I generally use the ‘Top Stories’ to try to peruse the latest news headlines. The section has grown larger and larger over time, but has not improved or given me more actual news. It must have some sort of random story poster and keeps the same stories up for weeks, NONE OF WHiCH ARE DATED. New stories mix with the old and the only way to know is click into each one and check. This is particularly bothersome with things like COVID statistic updates, which appeared daily for a long time. A story about 500 new cases might appear right alongside a story about 30 new cases and you’d never know if either was current. In addition, the same story will often appear many times in one scrolling, sometimes with a different headline. There seems to sometimes be a loose grouping of similar stories, but that is not consistent. The lead-in text is highly variable in both amount and quality. I would like to see an overhaul where there is a section for today’s news, with some divisions or sections for subject matter. Any stories from other dates than today need that date right there with the headline, and to be somewhere else entirely. Lead-in text should be consistent and concise and let me tell easily whether I want to read the rest of the story within a few words.
