HOMESCREEN WIDGET???!!! Where is it? Perhaps the developers need to look at (say) The Guardian app or the BBC NEWS app... Both of THOSE are obviously aware that a scrollable WIDGET on the homescreen put the stories and headlines within easy reach of users... It's not enough just to be politically unbiased, people don't always have time to go to the app to check new stories when a few swipes across homescreens can show them recent headlines from several news sources in a matter of seconds... SCROLLABLE, CUSTOMISABLE WIDGET PLEASE!!
Won't run on Xperia Z tablet Installed onto my Xperia Z phone and works fine. Installed it onto my Xperia Z tablet, will not run. Constant message saying "unfortunately the Independent has stopped". The Independent has been my newspaper of choice for many years and I really want a working android app (hence only 2 stars). Please please sort this out and I will gladly give it 5 stars!
Still crashing I like the app, it's free, the layout is clear, the ads are not too intrusive, the content is engaging, but it crashes every single time I use it. Android gives system message: 'Sorry, [...] has stopped'. Annoying.
Good App With Bugs Great app and design. App crashes a lot but otherwise good app with interesting articles.
Great news, poor app The articles and content are very good, but the app constantly crashes, freezes and causes my Z1 compact to reboot.
Murdoch made it It is as though R. Murdoch had made this app just to sabotage the best paper ever. One of the few remaining papers to give voice to true journalists like Fisk and Cockburn, The Independent is working hard to alienate smart phone users with this app. Please fix the horrendous freezes is all we ask. Update: new version no longer crashes, much better.
