Ratings and Reviews
A pleasure to use but still room for improvement
I have been a subscriber to the Daily Telegraph since 1990. I used to get vouchers that I would take to the newsagent for my daily paper. This was a pain as I had to remember to take the vouchers. I then had to carry the paper with me, which was quite bulky. I have subscribed to the Digital Edition from the moment it launched. It is a real pleasure to read my favourite morning newspaper on my iPad Pro 10.5”. The text is clear, the pictures are top quality and when I compare it with the print version that we have in our Post Graduate centre, I still prefer reading my version on the iPad.
There is still room for improvement. The app is much more reliable than before but it does still crash occasionally, although it quickly restarts. My main gripe is that although I have apparently downloaded the edition over breakfast at home, if I try to read the paper when my iPad is not connnected to the internet, I often find that the content for many of the pages is missing. This is really strange. My home internet connection is 200 MB/s so feel confident that the content should have been delivered.
Also, it would be superb if I could complete the crossword on my iPad Pro by tapping at the iPad folding Keyboard rather than on the on-screen keyboard.
When it’s good, it’s very, very etc.
Trouble is, it develops quirks - just had one where, when doing the puzzles, switching pages caused, as found on switching back, completed answers to disappear - only fixed by deleting the app and reinstalling; also, losing login details and demanding a fresh login to continue.
While I know that advertising pays most of the costs of the paper/app, in the paper version, the same advert isn’t repeated, page after page. It is in the app! If the developers think that increases the chance of the adverts being effective, it seems to me that the actual effect is the very opposite. It simply increases the annoyance factor!
That has now changed! While the small, in page ads remain, after the first full download, when the show in full, the full page ads don't load and there's just a message saying that the ad is only available online! While I don't long for ads, that is ridiculous. If I'm not online, just how am I supposed to download the paper? Also, if I am not online after downloading it, I find that it isn't really readable much of the time, anyway. Pages refuse to scroll, freeze, until nearly finished reading with a connection.
There is no search facility. In my household, this would be of immense value, when my wife, reading the paper version refers to an article it is usually difficult to find in the app, with its very different (by necessity) layout.
Good when it works
In all the time I’ve had a digital subscription (sine the early days as I was an early adopter of the iPad), I have not ever managed to get the automatic download to work and each edition is so bloated with pictures and adverts that downloading on a train WiFi’s unworkable.
I’ve followed instructions/mailed the Helpdesk etc to try and get automatic download to work, with no avail. I don’t understand why when other papers manage to get it to work (eg the Times). Likewise others offer a “light” edition which is downloadable if you’re not got good network coverage (eg FT). Why is the Telegraph unable to do this? I wasted the entire 58 minutes of my commute this morning trying (and failing) to download today’s edition.
Also and clearly this is my preference, but my iPad is a mini and therefore the cartoons are often unreadable as there is no way of expanding them in app. I could take a screen shot and look at it that way, but why should I make the effort do do that when the Telegraph is not concerned about the accessibility of its output. I don’t see why cartoons etc cannot be enlarged when all photos can.
As others have noted the latest updates seem to have got rid of the glitches in the puzzles.
But without serious improvement in the app, I will be reconsidering my subscription to this paper before my 25th subscription anniversary early next year
