Needs improvement I hope in the near future we will be able to zoom or increase font size.
A good improvement over the previous app. However not able to copy and paste parts of an article on a mobile device to share. Can only share the entire article. An option to increase or decrease the font size would be helpful too. As many readers do travel and read from our devices, this app would be great to have offline reading capability option (eg. whilst in the air) with a pre-loaded cache of all the current day's articles . The Economist app already caches all the current edition without any fuss.
Finally an app worthy of using I lost all faith in SCMP's former app for being far too slow and cumbersome to use, resorting instead to the mobile website to read the news. This refreshed app, however, is a strong step in the right direction. Only complaint is that there are WAY too many "breaking news" alerts. It's like the editors are trying to make a big deal out of small news stories to try and lure you back into the app.
Problem with bug fixes Why so many updates? The latest update dated 19 May 2016, has caused a conflict with "X-plore" file manager culminating in an irritating error which is unable to display the home screen properly and therefore shows HTML script... I have been using this app since 2014 without many issues but this really gets the gold medal for the app with the most dubious update!
Love it Now this is what an newspaper app should be! Big improvement from the previous one. It actually get things done! But I hope I could increase the text size and font. Also please allow me to copy text.
Great Job! Could be better if I can get an ads-free version with a purchase. 如能提供付費的無廣告版本就更好啦！～
- The app now supports dynamic font size within articles. To increase/decrease font size open Android Settings > Display > Font and adjust ‘Font size'
- We've made it easier to see what's popular on the site by moving the Trending section to the top nav
