Stay on top of developments in Singapore and around the world with trusted
reporting and in-depth analyses from The Straits Times journalists. The ST app
is free to download, and subscribers enjoy unlimited access. Key benefits for
subscribers include: • Exclusive stories, features...
Please allow us to print
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.
Refreshing change. Well done!
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.
Log in is extremely buggy
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.
Have to relogin periodically, newspaper doesn't load
Even though I have a subscription and am logged in, am told that I have no access to epaper. Have to logout and relogin again. Newspaper also doesn't load.
Do not install and accept this version…..
Do not install and accept this version without reading and understanding the new License Conditions which includes, among other things, your indemnification of Singapore Press Holdings for certain acts. Review and understand their use of your information for location-based services as well. After reading this I deleted the app from my iPhone and iPad and cancelled my subscription.
Too many, broken notifications
Ever since this new iPhone version has been released each push notification is being sent 2-3 at a time. That in addition to the fact that they are sending 5+ or more notifications. Opinion columns and heart attack studies are not notification news worthy. I'll be looking for another way to get my local Singapore news.
Serves up Ads at every opportunity to Subscriber
This app is serving up pop-up advertising at every opportunity, at startup, after every link, including video pop-ups. Very disruptive and irritating. Plus the video pop-ups are sucking up bandwidth, which occurs at every link. Very bad form for a respectable news org. Makes the app almost unusable, unless you have the patience to live with the nonsense.
Apple Watch app needs work
iOS app Works great but Apple Watch app is not native and is usually a blank screen.
Links in email should open app if installed.
Links to Straits Times website in the daily email digests should launch in the ST app if installed.
This app is crashes so often that it is no longer convenient to read stories even for a few minutes. It's also chock full of advertisements that annoy you to no end. Better to stick to paper.
It crashes the second you launch the App. When you do manage to open it, immediately a full screen ad hijacks your screen. Not easy to get to the news! Annoying and forgettable app.
Bad update difficult to read
Other than fixing the bug, the new update is worse than the original. White background is hard to read and glaring to eyes. Terrible! I suggest you take a look at how usatoday or by New York Times how they do it
Can't even open the app since update
This latest version keeps crashing the moment I open the app--I can't even see the front page of the ST app before it collapses back to my iPhone home screen. Please fix!
Horizontal view for PDF pls!!
Great app... Would give a 5 star if you update horizontal view for PDF news!
