    I subscribe to the London Times and Sunday Times.

    After reading a particular edition how does one delete it? I fear all this print is going to gobble up my storage capabilities. Plus, it is unlikely I will go back and read past newspapers.

    I went to the task bar at the bottom and clicked on the Help icon ( ? ), but that just gives navigation help.

    I'm sure when we had it, you had to hold finger on paper and wait for it to jiggle but I could be wrong though. You could delete the app and redownload if all else fails. Not sure that would work, I'd have to do it myself. Website might help you.

    For the times, my app only seems to keep issues for just over a week, nothing beyond that.

    In the Sunday times app click on sections then touch and hold any downloaded section, after a few seconds all the downloaded sections will show up with red X's in the top corner, tap the ones you no longer want.......this may also work with recent issues of the times.

    Thanks. I found the instructions for the Sunday Times and individual sections, it was just I wanted to be able to delete my daily editions when I finished reading them each day. The daily papers don't have the same deleting process. If we're just storing issues for a week at a time, then I guess it is ok. You would think there would be one process for both papers. Also, it would be nice to have a help section that explains the deleting process for the daily.

    Thanks again though for your kind feedback

    Ayrshire, have you tried swiping from left to right on the newspaper? Swiping is the only other deletion method, which comes to mind.

    I haven't tried this in the daily edition but I don't think it will work as the editions scroll left and right......I'll try it out tomorrow when I'm on the Woolwich Ferry.

    You can clear all the daily editions you have downloaded by going into the iPad Settings app and scrolling all the way down to "The Times" and choose "Clear Cache". You can do this each day after you have read the paper if you are paranoid about keeping space free...
