Nice to finally see a SMH app in the store. Pity it is fairly useless, not a patch on the ipad app or as comprehensive as the web page. It provides a summary of selected news articles, not all that is in the print version nor in a friendly manner such as the ipad app. Still showing the martin place siege as he lead story, 17 days after it finished. Some of the other news has been updated. Not a patch on the newspaper or apple app.

This is basic and needs the sections that we know and love, GW, spectrum etc. Do that and it's 5 stars and a subscriber.
