Des Moines Register Reviews
Works well for me. I use it to read some stories before they are printed. Really like it for Iowa and ISU sports.
Travel a lot. Keeps me up with things happening in Iowa while I'm away.
Des Moines Register App is Great
By Katherine Sargent
I like the way it notifies me as soon as the day's paper is available and pulls up videos that go with the stories (for example, footage of high school basketball games).
By baby wak
Like to read first thing in the morning with my coffee to see what is happening in iowa and how the legislature is ruining the state
I love the notifications and getting the news fast.
My god you reviewers are kind people! This app stinks.
Cannot comment on articles.
When I open it a pop-up tells me this version is no longer supported , leaves me no option but to click," OK", then takes me to the Apple store where Apple notices that that version is " Installed", and clicking Open sends me back to the original app which now sort of works but still stinks....
Great news and traffic updates
The traffic updates I use everyday

I love the Des Moines Register. It's my lifeline to my Iowa family.
Love this app!
By FCS Fan
Keeps me up to date each days as to what is going on in the state and around the country! Use it often!
Take a lesson from The NY Times
This is one of the worst newspaper apps I use. The app should take a lesson from The NY Times website which is like reading the paper as it constantly updates its self. The Register website is a comic book edition of the paper with far too many videos and pop up ads. I only visit the site if I have no other choice because I don't have the paper in hand. The website ruins a good paper. Does the Register want to be a real paper online or an Instagram version of itself?
Good way to keep up with local news.
