Mobile App Poll: Single App or Separate Apps?


We’ve heard from several readers about their preferences for a mobile app, so we’d like to put this up for a vote:

Which do you prefer: a single mobile app that combines all sites (One Not Always app), or separate mobile apps for each site (Seven apps: Not Always Right, Not Always Working, etc.)?

(I have a caller named Victor Krumm in the computer system. I’m a Harry Potter fan.)

Me: “Okay, sir, so you’re Victor Krumm?”

Caller: “Yep, that’s me.”

Me: “Sorry, this might sound funny, but did you know that there’s a book series called Harry Potter with a character with that name?”
