Wow, I'm impressed! I didn't think this app could get any flakier but unbelievably this new update achieves it. We'll done the developers, you achieved what I thought wasn't possible. And to add insult to injury it's a battery hog too! Just needs some spyware or a virus adding at it would be PERFECT!
Oh my god ..sort out this dreadful app Dreadful dreadful app crashing clunky headers hiding buttons in xwords..i love the Independant and the croswords but both are now so frustrating on this app that i cannot continue..seriously Independent you must have seen the same bad comments on here many times- i have..sort it out and i will subscribe..otherwise i am afraid we are parting company. I have been reading the I for 20 years and i do not make comments like this unless i care ..oh my god sort out this app..you are obviously not listening
PATHETIC I used the old app, it had its problems, but it worked in a manner of speaking. This new abomination demands that I sign in with SM. So, after discovering that I have forgotten my FB password, I sign in via Twitter. But that isn't enough for these bureaucratic little runts. I have to give my DOB, gender and 'Zip'.

Crashes alot I'm using a fully updated s6 and ever time I read the Independent it crashes. I keep trying because I really like the content but it's driving me insane. I feel like it's the adverts loading over the top that is causing the problems I may be wrong.... please sort it out. Once it crashes if I wait it will work until I close the app again could take 90 seconds
Sell-out I used to read this paper for.... independence.... That means unbiased, non prejudice articles. However they've gone the way of all mass media franchises now and stopped giving cold hard facts for us to form our own opinion. "No sir, please spoon feed me your opinion so I can gobble it all up and leave any thought out of it."
