No good


I start the app and then have to wait ages while the latest edition loads. And they expect me to pay $15/month but I also get saddled with intrusive advertising. And I mean really intrusive. Like go to an article and get taken to an ad page first!

You need to have a good look at how The Guardian have implemented their newspaper. And you need to get it on Newsstand on iOS 5 so at least the latest edition downloads in the background and is ready for me to read when I want it.

I signed up for a 3 month free trial but if this is what I get I'm not signing up for the real product. It's not worth it.

Excellent App


Once again it is good to see the Australian adopting features from the Wall Street Journal app from its News Corp parent. The app itself an excellent app, and is a real improvement on the previous version. It is finally good to be able to share articles from all places in the app.

A good start...but


After you ignore all the bias pro/anti comments you get an okay app.

Considering we've only just scratched the surface when it comes to print media on the iPad, you get the app which you can nicely flick between pages, easier than the web-site. The ads are there, but easily dismissible if not interested (similar to the actual newspaper experience) - sometimes we forget ads are actually useful.

Looking forward to future updates.

At the end of the day we need good journalists in this country being paid and to keep the govt honest - so get your wallet out and pay.
