I have been an Independent reader for many years. Futhermore, I fully ebraced the online / app only format. However, the app is sorely lacking in features and usability, articles are littered with typos and errors, and the standard of reporting has become hugely unbalanced. I valued the old Independent standards of representing all sides of the debate with smart writing - it has sadly become far too biased.
Been an Indy reader for years but the app stinks. No download available this morning; checked subscription and it's paid. Why oh why do you not spend some money with a top app developer and get something with a better user experience. Sadly Guardian and Daily Fail outperform you technically by miles.
Whilst I don't have a problem with paywalls, I find it absurd that The Independent app does not allow you to have a peek, or 30 day trial, before buying. The last time I tried the Indy app it was atrocious, so I uninstalled it. I've come back to try it once more and I can't tell if it's worth it or not. You can't do anything with it unless you pay. Do you pay £1.49 for every edition? Is it laid out like a newspaper? Can you comment? Do you swipe for stories? All of these questions will remain unanswered until I can try-before-I-buy, and so The Indy loses another prospective reader. Defies logic.
Great UK and world news coverage plus really good magaziney and opinion pieces, plus some Sudoko. The app is great for downloading everything ready for me and no delays flicking through. Interface for the menus could be a bit clearer but else really good.
Clear and informative coverage of current news in an easy to navigate app. Worth the subscription in my view.
£1.49!!?? What a con for left wing biased nonsense.
