What have you done? I was looking forward to one of my favorite magazines every week, because the digital format looked exactly as the physical magazine, the nice font, the cover, everything. It worked perfectly well and was easy on the eyes. And now we have this, something that looks like it's 1998 again, black fonts with no grace, no original cover, takes ages to download, crashes, and it's frankly ugly and blandly coldly digital. And where is my scrapbook of saved articles?!!

Brilliant magazine; my favourite reading of the week. But the latest version of the app is no fun at all. It’s one glitch after another. I feel the Spectator is spreading itself too thinly these days (TV, podcasts, etc.) rather than concentrating its efforts on its core business: the magazine (print & app) - and on getting the basics right.

The magazine itself is fantastic, of course, but the app is so frustrating and not designed for real-world use. Two or three times it tries to download an edition I have already downloaded and read most of. I'm often on a train with poor connection. So guess what. The download fails and then I can't read the edition - that would be the edition I've already downloaded! Incredibly frustrating
