Recent changes

I miss the Daily Briefing section. Did you consult your readership on that change or did you make it unilaterally. I also feel that when I started my membership you strived really hard to show equal numbers of views / articles to obviate bias. Over the last 2 years you have shown a preponderance of left wing articles. I would like to see you return to present different views to demonstrate a clear commitment to impartiality.

Available in the US at last!

I honestly missed this more than any other publication when I moved from the UK. I had the paper copied delivered but nothing beats the Newstand experience and ease of subscription.

Many thanks for making it available outside of the UK - now if we could only find a clever way to include the crossword :-)

It went from good to bad

After the most recent update, I’ve lost all my saved articles spanning many years. There used to be a night mode, but that seems to have been taken out.

What is the point of the interactive map? It takes 2/3 of the space leaving only 1/3 of the space for the story. This sounds like a bunch of people sitting around a table trying to figure out how to make the app better, and end up making it worse.

Why screw around with something that was working perfectly well.
