  • Delves a little deeper

    By Sarghosesalonist
    This is my favorite news app. I really appreciate the Guardian's perspective on international affairs, and I love the in-text links to other news stories that provide more depth or breadth.
  • Important app

    By Proletariat1234
    One of the easiest ways for me to get informed on the go. Thanks, The Guardian.
  • Trustworthy News Source

    By Supernik
    I love the Guardian app. It updates frequently and always has interesting content. It is easily my favorite news source, covering stories I don't see in the American press.
  • Paid But Still Seeing Advertising

    By DrewMerkle
    I pay to support journalism but I also pay to eliminate advertising. Not happy to be seeing ads. App has me logged in but when I click to eliminate the ads I’m asked to enter credentials again. Not ok. Also, sorry, not impressed with the redesign TBH. Form should follow function, not the other way around.
  • Top Notch

    By Ejaazi
    It's the best news app I've tried so far outside of apps that pull from many sources. However, I'm not a fan of the new logo and color scheme. Blue and white was so much better. Update 2/8/18 Still the best, but now the tab button to get to the menu and settings does not stay at the top but scrolls along the side as you scroll and sits on top of articles partially blocking your view.
  • great app

    By exumaslim
    excellent news source, unique and original articles, thought-provoking editorials.
  • The best news app 10 stars

    By BetaCancri290
    I purchased the monthly subscription and it is well worth it. The news that is covered and the links within articles is simply “Outstanding!” To be able to read current news and link to older stories concerning issues is incredibly fascinating and informative. Each day I find new information and detailed stories I didn’t know existed. I love the stories. Was reading up on Chernobyl and the newly installed enclosure and went through each of the links reading about life within the exclusion zone and the possibility of a solar farm. The content and how easy it is to navigate is simply awesome. One article and its associated links can lead to hours of fascinating information at your fingertips. If I could change one thing it would be to include easier crossword puzzles for novices like me that are working our way up to the more difficult ones.
  • one small fix suggestion

    By cuahieugiatla
    The splash screen still shows the old logo when opening the app from widget. Just some inconsistency quirk, otherwise 10/10. Love the Guardian.
  • New Logo is Heartbreaking

    By alkel101
    Why? That’s all I can ask. It’s one thing to update a look - see the extraordinary job Slate just did. You should read the hows and whys of Slate’s completion of the update. It took place over a l o n g period of time. It’s another thing to change your brand. What you had was a logo that was iconic. If you wanted to color it black, fine, but what you did was replace an icon (in the true sense of the word) with an ugly ‘update’ that looks like an elementary school class project did it. Did you pay someone for this horror or, perhaps, the big boss has a grandson (no granddaughter would ever create something so ghastly and forgettable) who is dabbling in graphic… well, one hates to call it design but there it is. Just go back. Do it quickly while it’s not so painful. Make it black if you must and I promise we will never mention it again. I would have given you four stars but not with this very badly managed process of ‘design.’
  • Great redesign!

    By anna-aaaa
    I love the new redesign! I had mostly stopped reading after the last redesign a few years ago - the light weight font (especially in white text over magenta half-device-width squares) was really hard to read. I also found it cartoonish, but the main problem was I couldn’t read it. I went from a daily reader, to just checking occasionally for balance against my other news sources. The new design is bold, more serious, and easy to read. Thank you for respecting my larger type preference. I’m back as a reader! I have ignored, with some guilt, your donation requests. Going forward I’m happy to donate, as the format now allows me to enjoy your valuable content.
