To download for offline reading, open your App when connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data.
Your app will automatically download the latest stories so you can read them offline, even if you close the App.
The FT App for Android automatically downloads content in the background, even when your App isn’t open.
You can set your preferences in the App settings as to what time of day you want to start downloading articles and at what frequency. Then you will be able to read content, even if you don’t have a data connection.
