Ratings and Reviews
Review of the app NOT the content
I use the app very frequently and have a few things which really annoy me. First is auto-play video ads. These then override the sound and mean that if something else is playing (like radio) then it stops. I get that the condition of the advert is probably that the video plays and I have negative views on that but it annoys me that this will then take precedence over everything else.
Second is that the articles are filled with links to other articles. For some reason, these open in Safari (my non-default browser) and if premium, require a further log in even though I was already logged in on the app. Why can’t they just open the same article in the app, or better yet, give the option of adding to a reading list?
The other minor one is that videos, when played and maximised, can’t be rotated to occupy the whole screen, leaving a sliver of 16:9 in the middle of the screen.
Only paper that talks sense
I tire of all the BS in the (lefty ‘liberal’) MSM these days. The lack of debate, the intolerance of opposing views. The shouting down of anyone who dares to challenge the so called liberal progressive left, or, perish the thought, question man made climate change, or support Trump, or actually defend our Judeo Christian values, on which the greatest civilisation the world has ever known, bwas built.
I went to a meeting at The Times a couple of years ago, composed of Times readers. One delegate said in passing that he once read the Telegraph and it made him feel sick. There was nodding all round the table - I kid you not! I got up and left not knowing wether to laugh or cry.
So I read the Telegraph, partly to check I’m not the only one who thinks the world is going to hell in a handcart!
Missing a key feature and also ad heavy
I’ve just signed up for a Telegraph Standard subscription on a good deal so have been testing this app alongside my usual go to news apps - the Times and the Guardian. Compared to those two apps, the Telegraph is a bit lacking feature wise, the biggest omission being any way of changing the text size which is uncomfortably small for me.
The other negative is how ad heavy the app is. The Times, for example, features some discreet advertising that is on brand for the newspaper, whereas the Guardian’s paid for levels allow you to go completely ad free. The Telegraph, in contrast, has ads on most pages for click bait type products combined with cheap syndication links for PPI claims etc. It is not what I expected as a paid subscriber - it cheapens the experience of using the app and diminishes the brand.
Thankfully there is an alternative - you can access the Telegraph including premium articles via the Apple News app where you can alter the text size and enjoy an ad free experience.
I understand the Telegraph is trying to balance offering a free app with an added paid for tier, but going forward I would like that paid for tier to include an ad free or ad reduced experience. Until that happens I don’t think this app offers a real alternative to other news apps with paid for subscriptions.
