Positive review Good ish by anonym
Great app 5/5
Positive review My number one news source by anonym
Since installing The Guardian app, it has whittled away at my top 5 apps to come out on top. Simple and intuitive, this app has replaced a number of RSS feed readers, Flipboard and the BBC news app to give me one simple, well thought-out source of news. 4/5
Positive review Good app with reservations by anonym
Like the app but my S6 says it is resource intensive, that 's not good 4/5
Negative review *Intolerable by anonym

Positive review Good but ads are annoying by anonym
I'm not paying 2.49 just to get rid of them though!haha Best newspaper/website in the UK. 4/5
Positive review Having problems viewing live text of football matches only by anonym
4 stars, because, I'm having trouble viewing live text of the football matches as the pages are not getting refreshed. It's depriving me to enjoy wonderful text commentary provided by you. I'm using the latest version of this app in android 5.1. Plz fix it soon. Looking forward to see this fixed in the next update. 4/5
Positive review by anonym
My best news app. The always outstanding quality of journalism and coverage in an intuitive good looking package. Thanks 5/5
Positive review F* the NY times by anonym
Better journalism, richer visual format and a narrative that actually reports on less popular stories that challenge the status quo. 5/5
Positive review Still the best news app out there by anonym
Good content (natch), intelligent choices of push news, clean design. 5/5
Positive review Great News App by anonym
In this day and age where every think is fast like food, news telling etc ... its good that the Guardian remain a quality newspaper instead of resulting to sensationalism like other media. 5/5
Positive review Balanced by anonym
Balanced and fair journalism without the spin and hype. Great app. Easy to use. 5/5
Positive review Easy to use and extremely good value by anonym
Very smooth working app and easy to navigate. Content frequently refreshed. 5/5

Delivers high quality news plus well researched back stories. Not afraid to challenge governments and vested interests. 5/5
Positive review Excellent content by anonym
Automatic updates very useful. Not annoying at all! Concise reporting. 4/5
Positive review by anonym
Excellent, love the no gossip, and sticking to the facts without putting a political biases. Fantastic read everyday 5/5
Positive review Customizable by anonym
This is good. The news stories are accurate, interesting, and thoughtful. Well done! 5/5
Positive review Good for online news... by anonym
...and they more seem finally to have fixed the offline bit as well. And of course is the guardian 4/5
Positive review Amazing news and interface by anonym
Of course, the best source for US news is based outside the US. By far the best news source and tool I've found. And, beyond news, the use of language is far superior to anything I could hope to find from the US. The only thing I would add is more customisation of the articles that I receive notifications for. 5/5
Positive review Superb... So Much Better Than The Times by anonym
Having been a Times subscriber for a number of years, I was quite frankly appalled with their inability to sort their mobile applications. My first thoughts with this app is that it is fabulous...and free! I particularly like the search facility. Well done to the developer! 5/5
Positive review excellent by anonym
Great app, but check its default settings carefully. (eg: The default update frequency is 5 minutes - which devours your battery in no time!) Otherwise great!! 5/5
Positive review The Guardian News by anonym
Clean, honest and unbiased reporting stands out as a hallmark for all news media. The apps help me to share with my Google plus community. The SMS alert is fairly fast and good. 5/5
Positive review Great by anonym
Objective, accurate and well written reporting and commentary. A wide selection of topics providing full global coverage, with appropriate focus on major issues and key events. 5/5
Positive review Love it! by anonym
Easy to use digital version. Sound reporting; great photo features, and plenty of left-wing rants in the comments sections! 4/5
Positive review Excellent news sources by anonym
To date the only news app I feel halfway comfortable trusting. The App is great and my only complain is that I cannot buy a yearly subscription straight from the App (only monthly). Love how action time lines are created for news of interest. 5/5
Positive review Good with some glitches by anonym
Earlier comments below have now been resolved. Attractive and usually slick app which delivers the views of the journalists and readers in an attractive and reasonably intuitive way. Occasional issues with stuck adds our random closures but they are minor and pretty rare. 5/5
Positive review Amazing coverage, awesome app by anonym
I am impressed! Really, the quality of content is creditable and the app itself is very competitively built and is full with eye catching aesthetics and beautiful colors. Journalism at its peak, I must say. On par with The International New York Times. I read them daily and they're the absolute best in my opinion. Plus, being in Pakistan, I read a local paper too and that one is The Express Tribune. I've tried them all and I can safely say that The Express Tribune is the best for Pakistani news. 5/5
Positive review This app (and the aptly named Guardian) are everything The New York Times and its mess of an app are not: It's free, accurate, usable/useful, and not a simple PR office for its government. by anonym
Getting subtly, steadily better & more functional. A true global reporting experience, and so far, news I can trust. Free access to excellent reporting, stories that aren't "100% corporate approved, government filtered, shrink wrapped & ready for dissemination" (wouldn't want to offend an advertiser or the government with news (can you hear us NY Times?)). Features: offline reading, selectable text (to aid in easily externally verifing facts and finding sources), suggested related articles at page bottom. Impressed with progress. 4/5
Positive review News by anonym
A good friend told me about the Guardian app, and I checked it out. WOW was I surprised! It is great! All the news about all the things that matter and then some. I recommend it to everyone now because I am so impressed with the content, layout and how easy it is to navigate. GREAT SITE !!! 5/5
Positive review Good -- the best! by anonym
But still needs just a bit more (imaginative, intelligent) work! 5/5
Positive review Good UX but Comments link broken by anonym
On my 2013 Nexus 5 clicking the Comments icon/counter top right of an article has no effect on this release of the app. It used to jump to the comments section. UPDATE: Fixed in latest version. :) 4/5
Positive review Tight display but not enough Tony Abbott by anonym
Needs more focus on the latest backbencher fashions, too much global, not enough lighter side of politics, like where is Joe hockey eating tonight 4/5
Positive review On of the best or maybe The best news app by anonym
It's really good but a bit slow in my country! 5/5
Positive review A good news app by anonym
I don't care about commenting or reading drivel about who is eating/wearing what. All I want is good, organised, readable news which this app delivers. I don't have a bad word to say about it. Highly recommend, especially since purging Facebook from my life. 5/5
Positive review Easy to use by anonym
No problems as of yet. The flow of the app is beautiful. Only odd thing is the repeated articles as you go through from section to section -- that being said it does highlight them if they have already been read. 4/5
Positive review Useful by anonym
Good. A little annoyed it automatically sends you emails everyday, but easy enough to turn off. 4/5
Positive review Great content, nice format by anonym
A reliable news source in a format that's nice to view and easy to use. I love it and read it every day! 5/5
Positive review Best newspaper around by anonym
I've read the Guardian for years, and I won't bother with most others. Good coverage, invariably interesting comment, and the Football section is required reading. Hardly surprising that Edward Snowden's revelations were in the Guardian. 5/5
