Great Newspaper, Dreadful App Having read another and more successful newspaper all my life I have decided to treat the Independent as my main source simply because it's the only one that seems unclouded by factionism. Just a shame that it's such a technically weak app, it's barely usable, hanging up all the time. And I hate the way the headline in the teaser is not the same as the one in the article.
Independent Live The content is good but the android app is hopeless because it stops working so frequently. I can't get through the newspaper without it stopping working a few times. Such a shame that the ICT doesn't do justice to the journalists.
Permissions. Why does a newspaper application need access to my phone and contacts? Other newspapers competing for readers with The Independent either do not require such permissions in their applications or allow them to be disabled and their applications are still useable.
Still Pants These updates are almost laughable. Having ceased the print edition and gone solely online the Indi herald a brave new world of digital journalism by adding the word 'live' to the logo. Crashes are still aplenty. While some of their best journos Fisk and Cockburn are buried between reams of click bait. Unless they get this right soon, we'll be reading about the complete demise of the Indi in the Express.
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."
