Eccellent news paper, but please fix the app. The Independent is undeniably my favorite newspaper, and I read it daily. However, my efforts to gather knowledge of the world around me are put to an abrupt halt when I try to use this app. From the very moment I get past the long load up time, I am faced with messages telling me the app is taking an unusually long time to load (In reality not unusual at all as it is ever time I load it). Once it has loaded, I am faced with the app, which is fine, and now I may click a story, and attempt to read it. But that would be all too easy. At this point I am faced with the bane of this app; "The Independent has stopped working". From here I have the choice to wait 10 or so seconds for it to work again for a minute or so, or alternatively I can close the app. Now, as I am sure you noticed before even reading by the sheer size of this complaint, there is a lot that needs to be fixed, and I am truly amazed at how many issues a news app can have. TL;DR, Fix your app, and you can have my 5*.

No obvious way to stop notifications And it never stops notifying. As though somebody thought, our customers will want our app to demand their attention all day long

Slow slow slow Freezes TOO much and takes ages to lpad just the front page. I'm so tempted to uninstall as it is just taking up space.

Independent Search is impossible! I've returned to using the website. It also irks me that, because I don't have an Ipad, I don't have access to all the functions, even though I'm a print subscriber.
