The Sunday Times UK iPad edition has been updated today, to Version 2.2. The biggest change in this update is that it adds Newsstand support. Newsstand has proved unpopular with many users, but appears to be a success for some of the bigger publishers who have embraced it.
Here’s the full change list for this update to the Sunday Times iPad edition:
Newsstand support — after updating, the ST app will move inside the Newsstand folder
Background download. Sections will continue to download even if your iPad goes to sleep or when you leave the app. When in background mode, downloads are now faster
Improved Store allowing for easy access to back issues and featured sections
Delete whole editions from the Store
Enhanced Live News Deck — with Galleries and full Twitter feeds
QuickLists — Improved navigation with QuickLists on every page
The ability to delete editions is a nice addition. As always with Newsstand titles, it will be interesting to see if the promised background downloads actually work as advertised.
