Notifications continue to ruin this otherwise great app

Every time this app is updated, I check to see if the notifications issues are fixed. Still not fixed as of Feb 2020.

The app continues to be less useful than the mobile website.

I want to give this five stars but notifications are very poorly implemented. Most of them expire after a short period of time, even when the articles still exist. So clicking on the notification an hour or two later just opens the app and not the article you want to read. You need to remember the title of article you clicked on and search separately, which makes the notifications totally useless.

Also, the inability to customise which notifications you receive is a nuisance. I want notifications based on categories that interest me, e.g. want breaking news but never want sports news.

Finally, the app really needs to support landscape mode on iPad.

For now, use the mobile website instead. If an app isn’t better or more useful than the mobile website, it serves no purpose.

Could do better

I like the idea of being able to read my news by whipping out my phone or iPad whenever there’s a 2 minute lull in my busy day. However I wonder do the Irish Times take their digital customers seriously enough. There are regular typing errors, which I seldom come across in hard copy, and in spite of quite a few complaints over more than a year, it is not possible to use landscape mode for a more comfortable view. Presentation looks great, but the change to pale grey text that you cannot zoom to enlarge, makes reading a miserable experience. I don’t think I will be renewing this subscription

Annoying autoplay.

If you run one of the video reports on the site an alert appears on the screen (partly blocking it!) that another, random video will follow. If you don’t press the pause button you are treated to some unrelated video. I contacted the Irish Times and asked them to either discontinue this annoying feature or to have an option to switch it off (You Tube provide such a feature). The Irish Times refused saying that not enough people objected. Thanks for nothing!
