Customer Reviews

Straightforward app - quality journalism

I started with the kindle subscription, pay monthly, so could cancel when wanted. Fancied the print version to browse, not much print in our house so it's a nice change. Plus this app which is straightforward to use. On a 12 month sub. It's an interesting read, subscribed after reading the kindle summaries which presented its features well.

Good variety

The mix of print, digital and podcasts/coffee shots means that I can keep informed using a variety of methods. I really like the balance of content and the way it is pitched at a level that keeps it entertaining as well as informative. We live in interesting times and having a first class publication such as The Spectator allows me to keep fully engaged in a time effective way.

The Excellent Spectator

If you want to check out your own political views and opinions and have them challenged (or confirmed) in a thoroughly entertaining and grown-up way you simply must get the Speccie ! And in any case, it is worth the sub for the cartoons alone ! I have been a subscriber since the late 1980s and still thoroughly enjoy looking forward to my weekly fix. Be challenged, surprised and entertained yourself !!
