***** A Super App for a Super Paper
by Antonios T.
I always pick-up the Metro when I see it at the station but with this App I can now read it in the morning before leaving home. This very moment I am writing this review after I’ve read the paper in Greece!

***** Marvellous App
by Tontojo
What a really good newspaper app. I have read Metro as a paper on and off when I can get it since its inception and always thought a great paper. To be able to download it each day is a real treat. Keep up the good work.

***** Great App
by Aydarose
Great way of starting the day with upto date news on your iPad without going out into the elements to buy a newspaper

Ratings and Reviews

Now THIS is How to Read a Digital Publication!


Great design, content and interactive features. Easy to read and access pages or sections. Minimal advertisements. I read this every day and i don't even live in the UK! Well done! Please add a resume feature so that if you leave the paper you can resume on the last page you visited.

My Favourite ExPat News Source


Metro really shows the others how to create a digital newspaper for the modern era. There is a place for bloggers and for real newspapers, and I think they have nicely carved out their digital space.

The interesting thing about Metro is that you do not need to be British to appreciate it.

One of the best I've seen

Metro app is like having the actual printed edition in your hands but in an electronic mean. You don't have to worry to be early at the tube station to get and issue. Now you've got it here. Tremendous interaction, a most download app.
