Tricks you into clicking ads

The ads are so easily triggered while scrolling. Any slight brush causes the browser to open with the ad. I can’t get through a single article now without accidentally opening these ads multiple times. The latest update now also has full screen ads that moves the close button around. Sometimes this button is camouflaged with the background so you can’t find it causing more opening of ads. Such cheap tricks to increase clock through to ads is not what I expected from a respected news source.

Messy and missing features

More ads for a subscription i am paying for? Scrolling on my phone works poorly and the print edition is gone! That was the feature I used the most. Sure, the look is nice and refreshed but now the functionality is so poor being forced to use the pdf to read the print editions. Who in the right mind does this? Please learn from Apple and how good the Apple News app is. And bring the print edition back so I can read in a continuous page with proper formatting! This is so annoying.

Hi michlhw, thank you for your feedback. We'll share this with our product/design teams. For the full print experience, please try the e-paper. A 14-day archive is also available in the e-paper section. For latest top headlines and most updated articles of the day, including breaking news, live coverage and multimedia features, check out the homepage, Latest or section pages. Please contact if you need further assistance.

Caution! Read before installing!

There is no way to remove it. I deleted this app because I prefer using Safari when visiting its site. After an uninstall, its icon vanishes, along with its app listing in iOS Settings, but it remains fully functional as an un-deletable ghost app when launching from a bookmark or a Safari page icon saved to my Home Page. Only workaround: manually type the Straits Times’ URL in Safari every time you visit the site. This should not be permitted.
