Customer Reviews

Love The Guardian.

Definitely my most used app, keeps me up to date with everything I care about and the new design makes personalisation so easy! Great way to keep up to date and the glitches that coincided with the new iOS release have been sorted. Get it!

A great update

A brilliant update to an already great app. Love the new swipe both ways - great not to have the left-hand navigation popping up each time you want to go back.

Please add 3D Touch support

The Guardian app is a pleasure to use on both iPhone & iPad.
It would be great if you could add 3D Touch support. Quick access to Headlines, Photos, Videos or favourites for example.
