If you were an early purchaser of the Times of London app for the iPad, you should be getting a nice little bonus along with the latest update for the app, to Version 1.4 – an extra 30 days subscription for free.
We hope you are enjoying The Times iPad edition. As you were one of the first to sign up we would like to thank you for your support and, as a token of our appreciation, we’d like to extend your subscription for 30 days from the minute you update.
If you haven’t already done so, simply update to version 1.4 at the iTunes App store to enjoy The Times iPad edition for the next 30 days.
I think this a good gesture on the part of the Times publishers, but what I’d really like to see is some major improvements to the app. It has a very long way to go to be worthy of being called an ‘iPad Edition’. See my review of it here for all my reasons for feeling this way about it: http://ipadinsight.com/ipad-app-reviews/review-the-times-of-london-for-ipad/.
The email I received with the subscription extension news says that ‘a host of new features’ are being developed based on user feedback. Let’s hope those come soon and that the app gets its much needed major overhaul.
