Previous app version loaded really quickly. The latest version now spends an age "checking for new content" irrespective of whether there is an active internet connection. Why not just have a schedule option to download new content? I have told the app to only download when on wifi so why does it need to check for content when I am not on wifi? Tempted to uninstall and cancel my subscription if this isn't fixed
New app version has fixed the bug of frequent crashing. But it has introduced a new problem. When I try to scroll down a page quickly, the text bounces upwards as if held by a rubber band. Very odd. It forces me to read slowly, scroll slowly, and not skim articles.
More trendy A vast improvement on the previous app. It reads very well, especially when using Chromecast to cast onto an HD TV - nice and clear text. Podcast feature is a much welcome development. However, I have to downland the issue to listen to it. Perhaps make it more accessible? Also app fails to start on first opening.
I love the Spectator, I really do. But this app is an embarrassment. It habitually crashes, is very clunky, and not very readable. Might I propose looking at the Economist app as a model? Their app (not their newspaper though) is far superior.
This is a comment on the updated version (August 2016), specifically version 184.108.40.2060.1099. It still crashes every time on start-up: requires a reset and memory clear to run. Also, as far as I can see, the developers have removed the option to change font size. They specifically solicit feedback and reviews here. But then ignore it. Content: 5 stars. App: 0 stars if possible.
Even in the latest version ! If you choose to archive an issue under Android 6 the apps says "resetting" does not archive and fails to load. Needs uninstalling and reinstalling to get it to load and then redownload the issues again. Needs an urgent fix ! Now 2 stars
