The Register - Biting the hand that feeds IT

With more than 5 million readers, The Register is the one of the world's biggest online tech publications.

It has news desks in London, San Francisco and Sydney to make sure you get the news you need wherever and whenever it happens. And it has columnists who'll give you an interesting take on the implications.

It has an active community of IT Pros from across the world, who discuss everything from cloud to chips, systems design to sys admins, Virtualisation to Vatican bloggers, Latvian hackers to liquid crystal raygun turrets.

For an original slant on the world of technology, you could do worse.

The Register. It's where tech lives.

Customer Reviews

Quite a good app, rendered infuriating by adverts

The title says it all. The app works well, the addition of comments made a big difference (although you can't vote on them like you can on the web version).

BUT.. And it's a big 'but'.... The Office365 banner advert, flashing and blinking, in those horrid colours simply distracts to the point of fury.

Truly, this advert alone stops me using this otherwise good app.

Annoying adverts - not as shown in screen shots

The app is ok but the stupid advert for office365 is constantly blinking and flashing which detracts from the whole app experieance.

I notice that neither the advert nor its place holder are shown in the app store's picture, so it is not as advertised.

I have gone back to the web version as you can zoom into that and stop the flashy blinkly rubbish at the sides.

Overall - poor.

I expected better of the register, maybe they are starting to believe their own stories.

Makes each day worthwhile

The Register is part of my daily routine. Having the app on both my phone and tablet makes journeys especially fun. Good layout and easy to use. Keep up the great work chap.
