Living outside the USA, it is good to read through an overview of what is happening. It is night in the Sthn Hem when all news happening during day in America, so it makes u feel connected in real time. Opinion pieces highlight some points that never highlighted here. Its affordable & gives more articles than some others. Keep it up! ☆☆
The news articles are generally good and provide a nice balance to some other news sites I use. But the app itself is very buggy. It frequently freezes on start up so that it is a minute more before you can do a anything. And for some reason, it won't provide fresh headlines on a Friday. Tempted to uninstall.
Its great, as always There are so very few decent newspapers in the UK. Hence, its only right we should be vocal about how good the reporting is. It makes me sick to my stomach when i see headlines from the daily mail and daily express. Newspapers like these have blood on their hands. They are actually beneath gutter press.
Don't waste your time First three attempts to use: 1) I tried searching but only ever got "sorry an error occurred please try later." Perpetually. 2) I tried choosing the Tech section and the app froze solid. 3) I tried to read a story - as soon as I tried to move down the page the app crashed. 3 fails from 3 on Android Marshmallow 6.0. Waste of my time. Pity as I like the I.
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'. These I give, using my French postcode. It says "Loading" for five minutes until I figure that it thinks it is a non-existent American zip code, so I reverse and try my former British postcode. N
I've used this app on a number of phones. Although I love the independent and their reporting this app is a huge disappointment. So I have finally, after about 3 frustrating years, I will be deleting this app. Constantly freezes, stories don't load properly and there's a story about Tesla on the tech section which has been there for over 9 months!! The only reason I put up with it for so long is that I'm a big fan of the newspaper, but there's a limit.
