About The Independent:
Founded in 1986, The Independent stands for many things, often uniquely so. It stands independent of political party allegiance and makes its own mind up on the issues of the day. The Independent has always had a global perspective, built on a firm foundation of superb international news reporting, journalism and analysis and now enjoys a reach that was inconceivable when it was launched as an upstart player in the British newspaper industry, with as many readers in the US as the UK. It breaks news stories that matter, and alerts the world to new challenges.

Love the paper but....

Used to enjoy reading the paper on the Daily Edition App purchased through iTunes, bit basic, no whistles and bells but worked well. Took up week free offer direct through the independent for daily edition and I M and now can’t access daily edition. Just constantly tells me that it doesn’t recognise email or password. Major frustration! And now the crosswords aren’t on IM. Asked for help three days running on online helpline and get message someone will get back to me but no one does. Considering going back to The Times online. Not pleased....

Took some getting use to - like the way articles fit the page rather than endless continuation that goes with the beeb.
Will never buy another paper paper again ( whilst I have a phone!!).

Am too busy to read full paper every day. Get most news from radio and tv. But I like what I can see of the Indy. Wish it was more open for casual readers, like me, as is the Guardian. But find the Guardian is hysterically left wing. I voted Leave, but am not a fascist, or stupid and uneducated (PhD), or a rabid right winger, (as so many b t l comments in Guardian assert). Wish I could occasionally see a bit more of the Indy. But fully understand you have to charge. But my limited time and many commitments also force me to prioritise. Best wishes. Hope this feedback helps?
