Pop ups, ads near the buttons to switch news sections and in-line articles when you're scrolling through articles. It costs more than the New York Times and has the most ads I've seen for any news app. Please reduce

Previously you can print out an article using the web based log in, now that function has been removed. As a result you can’t share an article with your friend who do not have a subscription. Another features that were removed years Avon is for the reader to comment on the article. Most reputable newspaper allowed that. That was remove a few years ago. As for this app. It is better than in the past. But if one one needs flexibility, one would use the web based link.

The latest build is so different (better) in form and style from all that has come before that it is hard to imagine it coming from the same team, or company. Whatever it is that you are doing, SPH, please keep at it. It's certainly in the right direction. The user interface is rich and intuitive. It is easy to navigate and a joy to use. It is no longer a poor cousin of the print edition and can stand on its own as a complete Straits Times. While it is no FT or NYT, is comes very close; without mimicking or copying. Kudos to the development team. Now that the electronic version has caught up with the print edition, perhaps ST can set its ambitions higher and aim for a global readership, much like the FT or the NYT. With more op-ed, analyses and features that appeal to a globalized audience trying to understand Asia or the world through Asian eyes. Best of luck!

Crashes 9 out of 10 times; thru the years & versions it hasn't improved. Advertisements load quickly and perfectly, even when everything else has locked up. Effort focused not on the user but rather on protecting their copyright: eg impossible to share an article's text, not even a snippet; eg the app resets if you switch apps, forcing you to reselect the paper & page once again. It is clear the intent is to have a mobile presence & try to monetise it, rather than actual news delivery.

The system asks for a subscription to view the paper in pdf format when I have an ongoing subscription that covers that. This has happen countless times over the past few years when I had switched to online viewing rather than reading a physical paper. Please fix it. Once or twice is acceptable. Frequent periodic screw ups are not, especially for a national paper.
