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 220.127.116.110.1099. 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.
Crashes. The app must be started twice to make it work. The first time it always crashes. I wish it were possible to change font size, as is typical in other reading apps, like The Times.
Archiving on Android 6 Resets 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 !
Design ok but incomplete, buggy You can't change font size, you can't zoom in on illustrations. This was previously possible. And if you leave it open and do something else, when you return it crashes. Not good enough for an expensive subscription app.
