Customer Reviews

One app, two choices.

Here is an app that provides a view of the newspaper as it would be seen had a paper copy been purchased. In addition, it provides a digital version that enables fast navigation to a substantial amount of content, ease of browsing and access to supplements, etc. So, the best of both worlds and a comfort for those of us who still suffer withdrawal symptoms from the dear old paper copy with all its accompanying smells of print and paper and that audible rustle of those crisp pages.

App much improved and working well.

I enjoy the Independent immensely. The Design, layout and photography are excellent and unmatched by any other quality newspaper.
The articles cover a wide political spectrum and is a true Independent.

Great app

The app is useful and well designed with two small exceptions: it starts painfully slow on my iPad Air 64GB and it covers system clock which is unacceptable.. Bring the clock back - I enjoy using the app so much that I lose my sense of time lol
