SPIEGEL ONLINE is now called DER SPIEGEL and gets a completely renewed appearance on all digital platforms – also in the app.
More depth, more reading pleasure, more overview, more personalization: With version 4 of our app, we set new technical, journalistic and visual accents. We've got proven features, created new ones, and improved where there was room for improvement.
A new, better SPIEGEL:
The SPIEGEL app continues to offer free, uncompromising quality journalism, news, backgrounds, comments and analytics. By merging the online and print departments, our editorial staff has grown to more than 500 journalists and documentaries. This means that we have more resources for independent research and fact-checking than ever before – and you benefit from it.
New layout, more orientation:
Our new design makes connections clear. Clear theme blocks on the home page allow you to get as deep as you want. We have a variety of perspectives and insights on each relevant topic. On the homepage you will also find familiar sections such as politics, foreign countries, panoramas or business, but also the new department "Life" - guides that benefit you and texts that touch you.
Notifications and newsletters:
You decide which notifications and newsletters you want to receive, depending on your preferences and interests. Breaking news, important messages, reading recommendations - so you know in advance what's being pushed onto your phone, we've revised the descriptions and categories for notifications. We have also adapted our newsletter offering for more transparency and flexibility.
Our navigation now works without detours: you come directly from the start page to our audio or video offer as well as to all SPIEGEL+ content. Use the central navigation bar in the lower display area.
Registration and benefits:
Registration with SPIEGEL - the "SPIEGEL account" - now has free benefits. You will receive article recommendations based on your usage behavior and see which articles you have read so far. With the comment function, which we have technically modernized, you can debate with us and other SPIEGEL readers.
Feedback and exchange:
Our aim is to constantly improve our products and content. This can only be done with your help. Please send us honest feedback on the app to email@example.com or rate the app here in the store.
The new SPIEGEL app also offers this:
• High-quality design: new font, clear visual language. Good photos, more illustrations.
• New video formats that make backgrounds understandable.
• New podcasts like "Smart Er Life" and proven podcasts like "Voice Catch" or "Lobo", available via a new audio player.
• Dozens of other improvements in detail, both technically and in terms of content. A modernization push, in short: the next generation of spiegel
