Ratings and Reviews

The Pop-ups Have Gone


The Independent App is almost back to its old self. No more pop-ups. There are advertisements, but you can move past them. Still the worlds best journalism, so please give it a try.

Works well and is obviously the finest source of news and comment. Worth it just to hear from Robert Fisk.

My essential daily news site


Since downloading the Independent app I've ignored my other news sites. I'm politically non-aligned so appreciate unbiased stories. In addition, I have to begin my day with the crosswords and codeword.

Independent News


Credible, varied, interesting, non-voyeuristic, relevant, and reliable are all words I describe The Independent reading experience over the past year since I've started reading it. Thank you to all.
