Turn on automatic download of your favorite titles

  1. Open the Publications page
  2. Search for the (UK) Times Newspaper
  3. Tap on the name of the newspaper - very specifically where the name appears in the grey bar.

This will take you to the order screen where you can swipe the toggle shown below to turn on auto-download.

Send a title to a specific device

Managing your devices

The exact number will depend on your subscription type, but you can have several authorized devices on your account at a time. If you have logged in to your account on several devices, you might encounter the error message "Too many activations".
