2.0 out of 5 stars not ready, buggy, and poor 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase
Given the updates to the app I am updating this review. The good news is many of the bugs I mentioned in my original review have been fixed. (Notably the endless requests to sign up for the trial subscription). However, and it is a big however this is still a very poor offering and the team behind the app have a lot to do and we the consumer deserve better. Specifically:

1. The app doesn't use Whispernet and there is not obvious way to download the latest edition of the newspaper. It is a simple enough scenario - I want to turn on my Kindly Fire HD and either (a) see that morning newspaper or (b) press a button in the app to download now. Instead I'm left loading other apps (to flush the Time app from memory) or turning off the Kindle (again to unload the Times app from memory) or waiting in vain if these fail for the app to recognize todays paper has been published.

2. The app still crashes a lot - the only app ever to crash on my Kindle. "Asphalt 7 has stopped working". I don't care and I don't want to see the error.

3. I want to be able to select how the download works. At the moment the text arrives first and the pictures follow. Makes sense to a developer sat in the office but not to me rushing out the door to catch a train, without the images this is a poor experience. I should be able to select if the pictures `lazy load'. I also want to be able to configure which sections download as standard. On a Sunday morning I have to download each section of the Sunday Times separately. !? Believe it or not I do have other things to do on a Sunday.

4. When you write to me in the app telling me about updates please don't insult me by talking about the about on my iPad. I don't have an iPad I have a Kindle.

The text on the app store page says that from January 2013 existing Times subscribers will be able to use this app. News a lot of people have been waiting for, including myself as my wife already subscribes on her iPad & we don't feel we should pay again + the kindle version is more expensive. Have emailed the Times to ask & received a curt response asking for my life history, cats name & date of birth of my great great great grandmother-in-law** when will these corporate process managers realise that customer-facing responses like that don't endear us customers to their company & products. Meanwhile the whole debacle over not being able to use your existing Times subscription on kindle shows yet again how walled garden systems & DRM work against customers. I will not be subscribing via kindle, ever, and will only use the Times app if I can use our existing subscription.

Most frustratingly the edition doesn't alway as update to the most recent edition when opening on a new day resulting in me having to spend upto 15 mins switching the app off and on, alternating between web and other apps that update to try forcing the update and then finally resulting to switching off the Kindle Fire completely. If this was occasional it wouldn't be so bad but it does it most days, the problem with the App is that it doesn't have an update edition button so you can't force it to update to the latest edition. Grrr!
Apart from that the app is well constructed for reading and navigating sections with one exception being if you read from the front page sequentially meaning your next section after news is Scotland - has made me more aware of Scottish issues though!

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't refresh properly between editions 3 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase
It should be a nice replacement for the morning paper and I like the additional content that is not available in the app but when the damn thing doesn't even upload the most recent edition but keeps pushing last weekend's edition you have to wonder what you're paying for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete and utter rubbish 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase
This app does not work. Mine freezes many times a day. It will not download the days paper. On the occasions I do manage to get the paper if I start reading and then go back later the content has vanished. It's a total pain. All the other apps for the Kindle Fire work, why can't this one?

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off! 31 Dec. 2012
By G.Smith
Whilst the App may be free, the subscription is nearly double that for the iPad. What's worse, you can't use your iPad App log-in. Deleted.
