Very well designed app. Actually easier to get the content you are looking for than the website! My only small issue is that occasionally it fails to restart with a black screen of death. Probably a gentle warning that I have already read enough!
It really is rubbish. I'm a subscriber, but I think they only use it to promote the much better print edition. Crippled with adverts and unavailable content (unless you're a premium subscriber), such as articles from the Economics Editor. Navigation on a mobile device randomly throws you out of articles losing your place in comments, and unfinished comments. Comments often can't be loaded; search is barely usable. Navigation is terrible. The purchase page doesn't explain how this works. Search suggests articles without regard to date and struggles to find relevant answers. Opens with old articles and doesn't update. Recommends outdated articles. A mess.
There is now a diabolical hermes advert animation that activates anytime you swipe, making the application unstable and it impossible to read the FT. What a shame! It was a great app before. The Hermes advert also causes the app to freeze.
functional informative good oversight no problems, BUT as a subscriber I expect a totally ad free experience. not just does it have ads they sometimes get in the way of the reading experience. loss of two stars due to that
They recently started putting advertisements to the app. I'm paying a large sum of money to subscribe, and yet they're still pushing unwanted ads on my screen. This is unacceptable; I'm not reading a random tabloid & don't have time to slug through ads.
The FT's content is great - the app isn't. I use the app in place of a morning paper and need offline stories updated early. The app goes through phases of not doing this for no reason I can discern - it also regularly loses my login credentials.
