Not too good.

This is really a shrunken version of the print edition which is impossible to read without magnification turned on. The content is good but this app is not. I can't even do the crossword which is not interactive. The photos are terrible. It is very expensive and difficult to get out of. I can't recommend this. Come on The Herald. You can and must do better.

Initially I was extremely happy with the app. It allowed me to read the Herald on my frequent business trips.
Then the app stopped working. It repeatedly asked me to restore purchases and even after numerous - more than 10 - interactions with the app support team - and more than one week's subscription lost, I am still no nearer having the issue resolved. It seems that my subscription and tracking through the app to my Apple ID cannot be linked.
As I wrote, initially great - but beware when the service goes wrong..... You take your chances.....
Update: September 15. Call me stupid but I tried again and exactly the same happened. Couldn't reset my connection and I lost a month of subscription. Very flakey with dodgy support. I wonder if this app is endorsed by herald newspapers?

Room for improvement

I was delighted to see this app giving full access to reading the paper in its true broadsheet form. Download speeds and ease of use (zoom, swipe and archive material for offline reading) are good. However, images in the main newspaper editions remain blurred when you zoom in to read the article. This is not the case in the supplements where images adjust the focus to remain sharp and therefore making it a more pleasurable read. It must be possible to rectify this matter so please have it built-in to the next update.
