Love the paper but....

Used to enjoy reading the paper on the Daily Edition App purchased through iTunes, bit basic, no whistles and bells but worked well. Took up week free offer direct through the independent for daily edition and I M and now can’t access daily edition. Just constantly tells me that it doesn’t recognise email or password. Major frustration! And now the crosswords aren’t on IM. Asked for help three days running on online helpline and get message someone will get back to me but no one does. Considering going back to The Times online. Not pleased....

Paid app now?

It used to be free and I’d check it a few times a day, now I’ll have to pay to read it? Not only I’ll delete the app, I’ll bookmark The Independent on Safari and keep reading for free.
Unbelievable they made such a massive change like that.

Developer Response ,

Over 90% of the articles are still freely available on the website. You can try the service for free but unfortunately we could not make all the new features complimentary.
