Sprechen sie nochmal mit ihrem UX-Designer.

Noch Gewöhnungs bedürftig und überfüllte Oberfläche. Meist störend: man kann die Bilder nicht mit zwei Fingern auseinander dehnen um Details auf den Fotos besser zu erkennen. Auf dem Handy ein Muss! Bitte fixen.

No English

I downed this app.all I get is in German but it was in English.i can’t find howtochange the language?
By rambler_

It’s not in English

They claim that their app support English Language but the whole layout and buttons are all in German! Not to mention the content

No online support after cookie problem

After the app changed settings and needed support for cookie settings, I cannot access the app anymore for free. One minute to the next the app didn’t work anymore. The given tutorials only referred to online browsers such as chrome, but not to the iOS app itself. Emailed support and they sent an automatic reply saying they could not help me - without even looking at the email. Will use another news app from now on!

Start the article in English, then all is in German!

I really miss the articles in english! The new format is frustrating, since you tease us first in english and then with one click we see only german on a page which appears to be a request for a subscription. Sorry, don’t read german. Bye bye

Nur noch Mittelmaß

Nach dem Update lese ich den Spiegel ca. 50 Prozent weniger am Tag. Das App Design Team muss im Lehrmaterial der 90er geblättert haben, als es diese neue App entwickelt hat. Das Look & Feel ist sehr altmodisch und die Navigation ist umständlich im Vergleich zur Vorgängerversion. Zusätzlich sind die Inhalte und deren Positionierung meiner Ansicht nach anders. Eine perfekte App wurde so zum Mittelmaß.

Audio and Login issues

When playing audio stories under SPIEGEL Plus, playback stops when the iPhone enters lock, making the feature I pay for unusable. In the past, this used to work. Also, why, as a subscriber, do I always have to login again, when I try to access SPIEGEL+? Please fix this! PS: workaround: use the SPIEGEL Kiosk app.

The site changed from English ( I do not speak German) to German however three is not a drop box on the site that I can use to get it back to news in English. If it continues I will have to cancel my subscription. Ron Strauss

Terrible app

This is NOT about content. Der SPIEGEL is one of the best news outlets there is. It’s about their new app. The old one provided a quick overview about the main news item. User friendliness, ability to navigate and quick access to the main news - all gone now. This new app is now one of many others, complex page with many categories that only show up if selected. In the old one they were seen when scrolling through. Old app got me to top new headline again when clicking on header. Not so any more. Big loss. Not using this much anymore. Quite a loss. I am not using it as often as I did. Was my go to news app first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening. Not any more.

Unfortunately this new format just reinforces that SPIEGEL is on the way down. Articles without relevance that should be - if at all presented - suddenly start the presentation, clumsy efforts to force you into payable content ... I only award one star as zero stars are not awardable. Really disappointed and partly disgusted.
