London Evening Standard
Free, just like the real thing
London Evening Standard Review
by on October 12, 2010
At a time when a lot of newspaper apps are being charged for, we thought it seemed odd that the London Evening Standard’s Bada app was free. However, the paper itself is now given away gratis, so why not the digital equivalent? Like the print version, the app is intended to give a different type of ‘flavour’ each weekday. The app has its main subject areas along the top of the screen, but the layout is slightly odd as this is quite a large strip.
There’s an ad below, so it’s only because of our Samsung Wave’s large screen that it feels like there’s much content on the screen. We’d like to see a future version of the app have a revised layout. Other than that, the app does a fine job, arranging content in columns from which you can tap through to the main story. You can also share content via Facebook and Twitter too.
An essential app for Londoners, certainly.
