Digital experience well thought out

With another news app I use, notifications stop coming on some devices at times or led to missing articles altogether, but I have never encountered it in this app, so the experience is comparatively superior by far. The interactive graphics and videos embedded within many articles are great work too.

One of best news apps available

Very clean and crisp interface. Embedded videos work and it is easy to save articles you’re interested in for a later time. As for the quality of the journalism itself I have always been impressed by the wide range of viewpoints. Including articles critical of their owners -alibaba- or national government.

Great source of information

Having an interest in current news and information that I had previously been unaware, SCMP has been a consistent and reliable source. Initially my concern of biases, which when cross referenced with other information sources, happily has been minimal.
Thanks for providing another source for interesting news.
