A better experience

I used to use the Guardian app. It's a fine thing but inevitably suffers from the social-media malaise which is eating everyone's minds: there are comments to which you can contribute so you spend half your life arguing with trolls, and you can select what you want to see, so you only see what you want to see.

The daily edition has none of this: it's just the paper, without the piles of old copies you need to recycle. That's a great advantage.

It would be nice if there was a single subscription/membership tier which got you both the interactive, commenty thing (which I still use via the web) and this, but that may be against Apple's rules.


Loving the iPad app

iPad app is so much better than the normal Guardian app - much more like reading a paper so I have been really happy to subscribe.
Unfortunately, I now use my iPhone X everywhere, but this app cannot be downloaded on it.....I have been told that the format would not work but surely, if the developers comment that the format is for iPad but allow it on an iPhone, it is up to the user to choose whether they are fine with it?
This means that I am going to stop using the app and stop subscribing which I am rather sad about.
I bought the Saturday Guardian in a newsagent yesterday - a retrograde step!

Great Newspaper - app falls well short

I’ve subscribed to this app for 12 months. ( I pad is 18 months old)There is invariably an issue , page turning sticking , unable to move from adverts , filling crossword in is repeatedly at times a joke at best clunky , the daily issue doesn’t load in background as advertised - you have to request it . Saturday issue appears to have more problems than rest of week.(presumably because of size of download). My impression is that resources allocated to this app are inadequate to maintain a non irritating app . ( I do have latest updates and this app is only one that causes problems)
