The new App is the latest in a series of technological developments designed to ensure that Lloyd’s List remains the world’s leading provider of shipping industry news, information, analysis and data.

Great info; less than great execution
Lloyd's List is lauded as an industry leader in the field of maritime business news. Rightfully so. It has what you want: informative reporting and insightful analysis, grouped by topic (eg, insurance, tankers, bulkers, finance, environmental issues, technology, logistics, etc). But the app has issues. It doesn't load about a quarter of the time I try to open the app. It just sits there telling me "Lloyd's List," and never taking me to the news.
