    I don't mind that they put advertisement on their website as viewing is free but I would appreciate no advert for paid subscription. The advert is also becoming not "age appropriate"... If this continues, I might have to stop my subscription.

    First time seeing a paid subscription with ad-enabled service. I subscribe to many services online for the past many years, paid subscription has ALWAYS been ad-free. The Star really "stands out"! Will not continue subscription.

    App is fine doing well now. Loading is smooth very much improved. Fix the server issue for loading faster without disruption for best perfomance.

    This app won’t run on my old iPad. On my newer iPad, it will crash randomly and I have to open the app again and look for the last read page.

    The subscription is quite frankly not worth the price. The content is simply lacking and most of the news you're getting from the sub can be found in their fb, twitter anyways. So here's what I'd suggest. Do more exclusive content. Don't just report the news as is. Go deep and write investigative journalism. Know your demographic. Who's paying for the sub? What do they care about for news? Covid this Covid that, or actually good business news? Please learn from Focus Malaysia and The Edge.

    Why am I seeing ads for every piece of articles that I clicked into? I paid for the membership and this is what I am getting - the annoyance to watch a 30 seconds ads that cannot be skipped? I can accept them if it happens once every 10 posts, but for every clicks? No way, if this is not removed or corrected I will switch to other news source. You don't ask subscribers to pay and endure this kind of bad services.

    Is it just me or are there suddenly too many timed ads popping up since the latest update? Once is ok, but every single time when I click to read an article is too much. I've been a paid subscriber for a few months but may be cancelling cos it's too annoying. Paid subscribers shouldn't be subjected to the timed ads.

    The new apps have more and more advertisements that are disrupting your reading of the articles, despite you are a paid subscriber. There must be a correct balance between paid advertisements and the news articles.

    Good app with news. I am a paid subscriber but yet i am still seeing OBTRUSIVE ADs in the app. Understood it is part of revenue stream but hopefully can improve to make the ADs less of an eyesore.

    Trying out free for one month. After installation, they ask for payment. Don;t pay for this. There is endless advertisement for a paid subscription. This should be a free apps if there is advertisement. If Xiaomi phone is cheap but with advertisement apps, understandable, But if you buy a high end phone like Apple, you don't expect any unsolicited advertisement. 02-11-2020 - In addition to STAR reply, I am already a paid subscriber to STAR for RM400 per year. Now asking for RM9.90 per month extra to read online. The Straits Times only ask for S$0.99 per month. Other publications overseas ask for USD1.00 per month. This reflects that STAR MY is not trying to survive but maximising corporate profits. Dollar to dollar purchasing power comparison. STAR MY should charge RM0.99 per month.
