Appalling Locks ones phone up, crashes almost every time I open it. Friends have found the same. Good journalism tainted by bad app. Unfortunately their website is also a bit slow but at least it doesn't crash one's phone or pc. Please sort this. Your choice needs to be heard especially in the UK where we are fed hate and celebrity trash by most of the press.

Awful For such a good media outlet to have such a poor android app is hugely disappointing. Will stick to reading the Independents mobile website.

THIS APP IS AWFUL!!! I GIVE UP! CONSTANTLY 'APP HAS STOPPED WORKING' LOADS OF FEEDBACK LEFT EACH TIME IT FAILS AND NO FOLLOW UP . GOODBYE ... Shame, because ....Good news coverage and quite 'independent' however it now constantly 'stops working' ive left numerous feedbacks but no responce, probably going to delete it soon even though its the best news app (with regard to news quality) and independent. Looks like theres no quality of app support

Clunky, out of date Used this across a variety of devices and gave up after a week. Ugly, slow, and the news was always twelve hours behind every other website. Not a patch on the app of the (self righteous and irritating) Guardian, worse even than the clumsy Times app.

Excellent Not the greatest app, but still a lot better than most. Best journalism, however.
