Good app

We need the words and news more and it is what the hindu does the best. Who cares what the graphics are. Some of these ignorant people dont know how to rate things. Dont go on visuals everytime because this app is better at news than other apps like toi who focuses only on news which is controversial. This app deserves better rating than there are here.

Good app, needs improvement

The app itself has evolved significantly since the first time I have started using it to be better in terms of navigation and content presentation.

However, one very nagging thing is the display of ads. I understand it is necessary to make money, but almost all the articles I have attempted to read the first time will have the advertisement displayed over the actual content making it useless and extremely annoying when reading.

For avid readers, it may be a good idea provide an interactive version of the crossword.

40+ years of The Hindu reader but bad iOS app

Dear The Hindu team, I tremendously value this newspaper and is usually one of the only online news source I read most of the days, despite your opinion tilt often to the left. But I enjoy it thoroughly.

However this app I am beginning to get tired with your impunity for dishing out too many Trump ads which we have to watch forcefully for at least 5-10 seconds.

In addition if we go out of the app to check something else in my iPhone, it already looses its context coming back into the app forcing us back to the home screen. How do you feel if someone yanks out the bookmark from a 500 page book you are reading every single time?

Hope you sincerely take these comments to improve your app and the experience.

We may be able to live with lots other issues, but these two issues are becoming downright annoying, which is the reason for the one star rating.

Thank you
