Can’t log in

I am a long term digital subscriber and recently downloaded this app on getting a new phone, but the app doesn’t recognise my email and password (used on browser).

Surely I don’t have to subscribe another time to access the app?

Five stars for content; one star for usability.

Great catch up

I was away down in England visiting family and the shops where I was sold only a couple of papers and really wanted to read the article about the oil worth 45 years ago and so on, was able to use this app to subscribe for the week and catch up, getting access to other prints. Very simple but easy to use.

I like it....

Well done on launching The National in App format. I've been a subscriber to the digital edition for some time and first impressions of the App are great - a one stop click via the app and I can now read quicker and it's more user friendly too. Well done and bring on Indyref 2!!
