Crashes when offline.

Really irritating that the app crashes a lot but when it crashes offline, it won’t open again without a WiFi or network connection. Please fix this.
If you are on a 2 hour flight and it crashes 5 minutes in........

Could easily be a lot better

This app is not good. It’s clunky and slow to use. It doesn’t feel like other apps and doesn’t behave as expected because it is poorly designed.

Some constructive suggestions: make the iPad app not simply a scaled up version of the iPhone app. The text is ridiculously big and it barely fits any content on my iPad’s massive screen. The app is also only able to be used in portrait for some reason. Also make it go back when you swipe right like most other apps.

This is frustrating enough of an experience to use that I’m considering just not reading the Irish Times, which is unfortunate.

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
