Good, but needs some Improvements
It's a very informative and useful app and finally something in the agricultural industry, (which should have come sooner) so thumbs up for that one national farmers (y) however it needs some tiny improvements such as, the new IOS5 means your app stays open until you close it and therefore the app temporarily stores the data so that if you revisit the app you can carry in as normal, where as on this app you are taken back to the headline issues. Another issue is that sometimes odd pages can't load, or it doesn't zoom in properly. One of the biggest improvements that could be made however is hyperlinking, there are so many useful topics brought up in this app, and they say "for more information click here" and then you click and nothing happens, so hyperlinking would be a godsend. Apart from those improvements, top qaulity stuff. 6/10.
Could do better
A good idea but rather clunky. The zoom around pages needs careful handling otherwise you seem to be sent back to page one, just when you were getting to grips with an article.
There doesn't seem to be a way to search the whole arcive, so if you don't know the edition that the article that the article was in, you have to go through each copy. More work needed.
Proper news, well delivered, me and my colleagues are very impressed!
