1. I get a "Unable to load today's edition" error near constantly making the app unusable. 2. When I do manage to load a story, the font is stuck in a serif based font. This is a massive no-no from an accessibility point of view and there appears no obvious way to change it to something more readable. (also the case on the Times website) . I won't pay for a subscription that is uncomfortable to read when other news channels use accessible fonts for no charge at all. Rubbish app

Very disappointing. It works just fine for reading the most recent random articles that one comes across while browsing. However, finding specific articles or even just slightly older articles is near impossible to accomplish through the app's interface, especially given that it lacks a search feature. If there is indeed search functionality that is simply hidden in a particularly strange place in the interface—or if it is added in the near future—I would be happy to revise my rating to 5-stars, and would be even happier that I could start using this app, rather than just the web interface. Until then, this app is relatively useless for me. (Please add a search feature.)

All of a sudden the Times Live app just says "Login Failed" on one of our mobiles when we try to use it - we have temporarily circumvented the problem by accessing via Chrome, but not ideal! Any ideas? We have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, also switching off the mobile - neither solutions work. Any suggestions? Also, the app has started using much more data than usual this month. I regularly have to delete data and cache as all issues are held on the mobile storage - not ideal!
