It's only just started. I would prefer a contents page full screen with subsections to content. No TV schedules and Arts reviews. Hopefully this will come?

Did not work on my wife's older 10 inch android tablet. Does work on my Toshiba Chromebook, but online Independent pages are in the portrait format and not all of the opening photograph can be seen on the opening landscape screen. However, excellent on my Kindle Fire Kindle 8 inch.

As with many other reviewers, I found this a very poor app - buggy and inconsistent. The Amazon app store offers it as a download on devices other than Kindles, though given its poor performance it is hard to tell if it is doing better, worse or the same on non-Kindles. Certainly not worth spending lots of time on it finding out given the number of good news apps available.

I bought the independent from my paper white and works fine on that device. I tried to get it on the kindle fire and it does not load or work properly. I'm confused about which app to download on fire. When I try to run it on the fire it asks me for subscription. Please advise best app to download on kindle fire having paid for paper white on same account. Can I run on two devices as the case with books.

The Independent announced that it was going online and would be free. However, as soon as I downloaded it I had to pay for a subscription. This is not a newspaper I usually read so I uninstalled it.

This app seems to operate very slowly and eats at your data allowance. Once you get articles which take ages to download they are well written and often good stories.

I paid the monthly subscription to read the newspaper on my kindle fire. I am not impressed. It is difficult to get the print large enough to actually read, if you slightly overdo the stretch the format reverts to its original size. My main gripe, however, is that the sports section is missing from the weekend editions. I will not be renewing my subscription.

As far as the free app is concerned the articles are fine but not enough news items. I can't play the sudoku puzzle as there is no input mechanism. Strangely there is for the codeword puzzle.

I still like the Independent, although it's gone way downhill in recent years. This app however is awful. It's portrait only, awkward to use and keeps throwing you into an advertising site.
I deleted it after a few minutes and reverted to just using the paper's own website (where the comments are STILL unusable!).
Thankfully the app is free so you might want to download it and form your own opinion, just don't expect too much.
