Customer Reviews

Great backup to the paper version

I always prefer to read the old-fashioned way. But there are times when this app is so convenient and being able to prop it up and do something else as well as read is great. Also when on holiday it means I can continue to get my Guardian fix. I agree with comments about the adverts to some extent, but they are easy to flick past and do provide the Guardian with revenue so I don't really object to them. I too would appreciate being able to upload directly from the app to Facebook or email rather than having to find the article on the main site

As usual, adverts are the problem...

I've used this app for quite a while, and have stayed with it and paid the sub due to the general quality of the content. However, I've noticed that the adverts, which hit every few pages, have become ever more intrusive and complicated, and a recent one basically crashed the app continually.
I understand the need for different revenue streams, but this is a paid app, and I think more thought should be given to reducing the ridiculous complication of some of these adverts.
Update: the app is now unusable on some days; it freezes regularly and today's edition won't get past page 5. It needs urgent work on performance.

A Luddite repents

Having read the Guardian and Observer in paper form since 1971 I never expected to either change to online or like it. But we went on holiday to the US two years ago so I signed up on what I expected to be a temporary basis but has proved permanent.

I find the App really easy to use, the format extremely readable and the convenience a major plus.

I have left the dark ages finally, apart from watching Game of Thrones, obviously!
