What's New in Version 2.7.6
We made further improvements to the app fixing a number of additional bugs.
Thank-you for reading the Telegraph!
Ruined by ads
The heavily intrusive ads you have persistently forced upon your readership have with the latest incarnation of your iPad/iPhone app reached such a pathetically begging-to-be-noticed level that I have often resorted to reading the web version of the paper in my browser.
Since a broad swathe of users don't actually read the adds and instead find them merely irritatingly ubiquitous, you are only making your app less attractive.
The Times meanwhile has a far superior app and allows the e-mailing of articles to popularise the paper. It also allows an in-app web or dictionary search that your app used to have!
Used to have but not any more: your app is becoming less fun to use and you will ultimately drive away users rather than gain new ones. Shame on you for totally ignoring your app users feedback. Try reading the iTunes reviews of your app instead of your ad revenue reports.
And PLEASE desist from writing me another falsely fawning response in which you say the ads are a necessary add-in to finance the app. That's like saying "We understand your point but are obliged to completely ignore it". A mind-bogglingly thoughtless and user-unfriendly stance.
This App Is No Great Advert For The Telegraph
A bit dull and soulless, to say the least. However, the tsunami of advertising is the final straw. One expects it between the pages, but the constant interruption just as one starts reading, due to an advert popping up at the top and pushing the page down, is an aggravation too far.
The Times & Sunday Times app is a little more cheerful, but a complete mess. These newspapers however are rescued (big time) by their superb separate e-paper app, usable on the same subscription. Likewise The Evening Standard, which is FREE if anyone wants to trial the e-paper experience. It's about time The Telegraph moved with the times (no pun intended) and provided this format asap.
Ver 2.7.6 is...
quite buggy. It crashes often - asking to send reports back to the developer. Hopefully these will lead to an app update soon.
As others note the latest version carries a lot of ad traffic. I'm guessing the argument would be that this keeps subscription costs down.
Another item to note is that in use the app takes up a large amount of memory. Mine is currently at 3.8Gb for a 20Mb app. A wish list item would be the function to delete read copies of the paper - thereby saving memory.
