Customer Reviews

A Very Grown Up Read

I am new to the Spectator and found it very difficult to read until I realized that it is a bit like a cryptic crossword: really difficult until you crack the code. The spectator provides very grown up articles, which entertain on nearly every page.

Not a pleasant experience

Horrible download issues - last few weeks have been inaccessible. And a nightmare to cancel the subscription - Spectator refuse help, iTunes cancellation options artfully hidden. I hold out no hope of refund for missing issues. Avoid.


Great app. Is it possible for the crossword to be made available in a printable format please?
