Can only be used in portrait mode so it’s far too small to read. A really pitiful attempt.
So annoying-impossible to read anything. The moment a finger touches the screen, the app redirects to the web browser. Disastrous.
I’ve been using this app for more than 12 months and it’s worked great. Until now. With the latest iOS update, the embedded links within each page are now far too sensitive. This means when you scroll up/down on a news article, you can’t avoid opening all t e various links and ads to safari. It appears other news apps (CNN and FOX) have the same issue and are introducing a fix on their apps.
This app is basically useless; it is a thin wrapper for a web view, which would be fine, but almost every time I try to scroll it, it opens some random telegraph page in Safari and I need to switch back to it, leaving dozens of Safari tabs. Very annoying!
I enjoyed The Telegraph and its insightful reporting and commentary on what is happening in Great Britain and the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, particularly as it applies to the epic battle over Brexit.
The Telegraph provides a full range to UK and world news. “Opinion” is provided as opinion and seldom masquerades as objective news. When reporting science its writers can be exuberant but almost always provide a link to the source research.
Every week iTunes takes my $2, and every week the Telegraph says my subscription is inactive. In the process of “reactivating” my current paid-up subscription (usually several times on the day after Apple took the money), more often than not I lose the article I was trying to read. This shouldn’t be rocket science. Every other paper I subscribe to manages to know I’m subscribed week after week. If Brexit works out as well as this app from its leading proponent, the UK is doomed.
A source of sanity in a world of sensationalism
App is excellent on smaller screens such as the i-phone but absolutely does not compare when used on a tablet. I’d like to see a separate app for iPad. Also both the new iPad app and the iPhone version needs to accommodate commentating on posts, which is not currently a function. I therefore end up consistently logging into a browser on my tablet or phone, just so I can comment. Love the Telegraph, but their developers really need to consider the suggestions from this review to make their apps more functional and useable on different devices rather than trying to have one app which poorly attempts to expand to be used on a tablet. Why is it poor? It does not fit the screen, is pixelated/looks blurry. Here’s hoping this is addressed so that the quality I see on my i-phone is replicated to the iPad. I’d give a 4 star for the apps use on I-phone but only 1-2 stars for iPad. Of course the review has nothing to do with the quality of journalism which is in my opinion, second to none.
For a Yank back in the USA, reading the Telegraph is like secretly drinking a cup of tea in the late afternoon. The Telegraph is a quick pick me up to keep me in touch with the other side of the pond. Further, Brexit is even better than Game of Thrones. I may even find out the endings to both by June! John
