Regardless of your opinion on The Mirror and its lowest common denominator approach to news reporting, it deserves a lot of credit for getting an app onto Ovi Store. It’s one area where it puts tabloid and broadsheet rivals to shame.
The praise stops as soon as you get into the app, though. It’s incredibly ugly, resembling the kind of stripped-out mobile Internet pages we used to view before the explosion of large screen touch-enabled devices. While its presence is commendable, then, Mirror Mobile smacks of an opportunistic rush to fill an Ovi-shaped niche.
