Customer Reviews

Quality news app

The only minor quibble I have is the quick crossword has lost its 'back' arrow so I have to close the app and start again. Otherwise quality news from a quality paper on an app done well

Much improved

The App is not quite as user-friendly and quick to load as the Guardian App, but it works and gives great access to the content. A decent balance between advertising and content.

Great journalism, app can be clunky

As other posts here have testified the content is generally top notch. The app is pretty good and when working well is beautifully simple to use. However it is not always as stable as one might wish for.
