Login issues
I do not like the new layout. Looks antiquated and cheap. I also experience login issues with the SPIEGEL+ content. Always receive error messages. Web interface no problems - only the app.

Terrible app
This is NOT about content. Der SPIEGEL is one of the best news outlets there is. It’s about their new app. The old one provided a quick overview about the main news item. User friendliness, ability to navigate and quick access to the main news - all gone now. This new app is now one of many others, complex page with many categories that only show up if selected. In the old one they were seen when scrolling through. Old app got me to top new headline again when clicking on header. Not so any more. Big loss. Not using this much anymore. Quite a loss. I am not using it as often as I did. Was my go to news app first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening. Not any more.

The German language has a word for what happened here: verschlimmbessern. It means trying to improve something but making it worse. The new app is so much worse than the old Spiegel app, which in my opinion was pretty close to perfection. The new app uses too many webviews (with Cookie dialogs and sign in prompts), is confusing to navigate (go back to content overview is on the right rather than the left) and does not feel like a native iOS app anymore. I wish I could still use the previous app, which was so good at the one thing it did: Offer the Spiegel magazine offline.

Waste of money
The new layout is horrible to navigate. Navigation is very confusing. The font style is a copy from PricewaterhouseCoopers’ standard layout. That was a true waste of money, I barely visit this website currently. Prior to the change I used this site multiple times every day. Instead I started using the websites of other agencies.

Using (reading) it several times a day.
Especially in these dark days in the US, this app gives me the look from the outside in. Unfortunately, the most recent version doesn’t load the whole front page again after I read an article or two. Please fix it!

Just use the website this app is only a “wrapper”
I’m a subscriber and every time I open the app to have to enter my login details. There isn’t a bookmark feature or a history (most recent article read). I believe this app is just a “wrapper” a portal to the der Spiegel website. Better luck and usability simply reading on your laptop or via a web browser. (This is only a critique of the functions of the app, as news source Der Spiegel is a benchmark in German media. )

Substantial improvement
The Spiegel is now faster and much easier to navigate than before the App update. Plus the design and graphics is now much spiffier. Some of my satisfaction may also have to with my biting the bullet and paying the monthly $20 for full access.

Deutscher Spiegel
Since I barely have a chance to speak/read in German , I enjoy your magazine very much, besides of Frankfurter Rundschau and FAZ. (I am from Frankfurt.) Your reporting is straight to the point, as has always been, and it gives me the opportunity to monitor the general European response to the ongoing unrest in the US. Keep it up!

No online support after cookie problem
After the app changed settings and needed support for cookie settings, I cannot access the app anymore for free. One minute to the next the app didn’t work anymore. The given tutorials only referred to online browsers such as chrome, but not to the iOS app itself. Emailed support and they sent an automatic reply saying they could not help me - without even looking at the email. Will use another news app from now on!

Great content, but soon all of it will be behind the paywall, at exorbitant fees
To me, Der Spiegel is one of the most balanced German new publications. I’d be willing to pay for it, but not hundreds of dollars a year, so I’m forced to just read the free content. That will soon be reduced to nothing as more and more of the meaningful content is high pay only.

Used to be better...
The last few versions have not removed but introduced bugs. Clicking on an article, reading it maybe half way, and it goes blank with no recovery... I think it has to do with ads loading/blocked by iOS as I have ad related issues with the web version too... it’s a shame, used to be my favorite news app

Great app for a great news magazine
I really appreciate the app allowing me to continue staying in touch with Germany and the world. Der Spiegel is vastly superior to most US publications in regards to international news as well as German news.

Please fix the page loading and crashing issues
While the content is informative, the App for iPad is a disaster. Halfway through reading an article the page goes blank for now apparent reason. Going back from an article to the home page, often results in the same blank page. Please find app developers that know what they are doing. Looks like the competition could.

A Good Insight into world affairs
The app allows me access to a solid European perspective both on America and works affairs. Of course Der Spiegel is in German so a decent understanding of the language is needed as one would expect with regard to any media outside the English-speaking world.

Great stories in video and word
Short insightful stories of European and global relevance -not boilerplate news yet looking at human stories that will impact the trajectory of the pandemic, migration, perspective on human isolation and “Ausgrenzung “ Wonderful light stories from diverse journalists: such as food stories.

“Kiosk” App better
I pay for a SPIEGEL subscription and enjoyed reading the magazine in the old “Kiosk” app. The look & feel of the new app is way inferior to the old one. In addition, it seems many articles are missing (reading the PDF is not an option!) which was not the case in the old app. I am seriously thinking about cancelling my subscription.

The Spiegel - a mirror for Germany
….what a terrible app! It takes ages to load downloaded magazines, no bookmarking functionality, the UI all over the shop. Seriously, this is the epitome of a failing Germany - old school, over-engineered, ‘komplett am Nutzer vorbei’. Take a look at the Financial Times app and you may find some urgently needed inspiration. Your developers need to be replaced asap.

It’s in German
I used to use DER SPIEGEL English, they stopped supporting the app. There is still an English section I can read, but all buttons, instructions, and navigation are in German. On the bright side, my German is getting better.

App crashes continuously
I’ve been using this app for a long time with very good experience but in recent days the app does not work as expected. After clicking an article the app appears to reload the page continuously, pages turn white and it is painful to read a single article. Please fix immediately!!

Start the article in English, then all is in German!
I really miss the articles in english! The new format is frustrating, since you tease us first in english and then with one click we see only german on a page which appears to be a request for a subscription. Sorry, don’t read german. Bye bye

Old version was better
I do not like that the app is not always starting new at the top when opening. Is there a refresh button. I like the headline option. I do not like that I can not see reader comments at the bottom of articles.

Basically all football (soccer) news all the time. Currently the first four headlines about football. Even though there is a little problem with corona. Sometimes the first 5,6 or even up to 10 first headlines about football only. Embarrassing.

App good, new SPIEGEL online design 3 steps back
The new SPIEGEL design is a huge step backwards - looks like the print magazine and like stuck in the 90s. Ugly orange and old fashioned fonts everyone. Not the SPIEGEL online you’re used to. More like the Focus or Bild than a serious and qualitative online news site.

This app downloads so much data over the cellular data network. It is not funny anymore. It is loading commercial videos so they get revenue. But now you’ll have to pay for all the data they need - not cool. Deleted.
