Re-designed for iPad

The FT web app
for iPad and iPhone

The FT web app, which is optimised for use on iPad and iPhone, is available via your Safari browser at rather than from an app store.

The web app is our most complete app to date and we regularly add new features and sections to it. These are available instantly, without the need to download a new version. Recent additions include 'clippings', allowing you to save articles for later reading, and enhanced graphics.

For users accessing the FT web app on iPhone, you'll notice a completely fresh design. A new look and feel, along with additional features and tools, means a cleaner and easier-to-read app.

My FT New for iPhone

My FT is your new hub for all personalised features including clippings, recommended reads, recently viewed articles and your portfolio summary.

Richer content New for iPhone

We’ve added new sections to the web app including Money, FTfm and Special Reports, among others.

Article pages will now include embedded video, slideshows and hi-res images giving you a richer reading experience.

Morning Edition iPad only

Morning Edition presents content as per that morning’s newspaper – and won’t update throughout the day, giving you a reading experience as close to the paper as possible.

Prefer to get updated on the latest news as it comes in throughout the day? Just switch back to the Live Edition.

Getting the FT web app

Simply type into the Safari browser on your iPad or iPhone to access the web app.

Add the app to your home screen

Tap the share button in the browser and select the Add to Home Screen icon. We encourage you to do this so you can enjoy full access to the app when you are offline.

Not on iPad or iPhone?

We'll soon be making the FT app available on a range of other phones and devices. In the meantime you can access the FT on the move with our other mobile products and services, such as our mobile website or Android app.
