What's New in Version 2.1.2
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Big data consumer. Difficult to find content.
There are two main issues with this app. Firstly the sheer volume of data it uses. Despite the fact I mainly update it on wifi, it still seems to use a gigabyte of data a month. That's £10 for me on top of my subscription. Turning off updating in the app makes little difference, and if you turning off in the operating system, the app just reports errors and won't let you see what you previously downloaded by wifi.
Secondly, it's difficult to get to all the articles. When I do an update, it says it's downloading 2,000 articles. I can only see a fraction of these and the navigation hierarchy is not the same as the newspaper, so you have to guess where things are. More choice of shortcuts would be useful.
As has already been said, The Guardian app I vastly superior - and no £26 a month subscription!
OK for headlines but ......
This app is OK for the headlines but the iPad version is so much better. Why can't I get the iPad version on my iPhone 6+?
The SHARE function DOESN'T WORK either, as another reviewer has pointed out. It only shows the start of the article then invites the recipient to subscribe, whereas the iPad version shares the full article. Why can't the iPhone version do the same? It is very irritating having to remember which version works correctly and/or having to email myself to check, (having logged-out of course).
Maybe I'll try another web-chat to raise these points - again.
I was very disappointed with this app, although the layout and interface is very user friendly, there are some big bug issues that need fixing. My crosswords don't load which is very annoying, especially when I pay for it! The guardian app is free and infinitely better, if they can do it for free, surely The Times can do it properly considering the price of subscription.
