I don't want to sound like a broken record but the two images above help sum up my frustration with iPad apps from news media publishers, that don't work well and leave the user (me) feeling frustrated.
The image on the left is from the supposedly iOS 4.2.1 optimized Financial Times app. It asks me for my username and password every time I open it. In this instance I had forgotten either my username or password, I have to guess which. It doesn't matter because entering any information whatsoever leads to the blank screen of death!
So I deleted the app.
