Customer Reviews

Great App / Poor Journalism

Have been subscribing to the Guardian/ Observer iPad editions since it's launch date, without doubt it is way ahead of any other newspaper on line. The technical problems it suffered from in the early days appeared to have been sorted and it is a pleasure to use. I was an on line Times subscriber before the Guardian went on line and to be fair to the Times/ Sunday Times, theirs is good but out of loyalty to the Guardian, I went over to their app. However, having been a regular Guardian/ Observer reader for over 40 years, their standard of journalism has deteriorated alarmingly in the past year. It no longer represents my political views, especially since the Referendum vote, which did not go the way it had wished. Sorry to say but the 5 stars I would have given you in the past is now down to only 2, which are given for your Weather and Sport reports.

Great visuals but some technical issues

There are many advantages of reading The Guardian this way - the excellent quality of the print and visuals, the ability to navigate sections so easily, size, and the ease of being able to click on a link and go straight to the relevant website. But I miss the daily sudoku! And I wish the paper was there when I open the app in the morning. This used to be the case, but now sometimes it's downloading and usually unpacking and sometimes it refuses to download at all. I can't follow the instructions for when this happens so have to delete and reinstall the app, which is annoying.

Actually only 4.75 stars

The nit-picking bit: I would like to see the other puzzles, like Sudoku, included. Hence the 4.75 stars.
The important bit: it's great. I read it on my iPad 2 when at home and on my Nexus 7 when on a bus or train journey; the Nexus fits my inside jacket pocket. The attractive layout is easy to use, and the photos are great - the print version can't match that.
I used to buy the newspaper every so often (often depending on the weather), but now I can read it while I'm having my early morning coffee every day and it's even cheaper.
