App Reviews

  • The best news app 10 stars

    By BetaCancri290
    I purchased the monthly subscription and it is well worth it. The news that is covered and the links within articles is simply “Outstanding!” To be able to read current news and link to older stories concerning issues is incredibly fascinating and informative. Each day I find new information and detailed stories I didn’t know existed. I love the stories. Was reading up on Chernobyl and the newly installed enclosure and went through each of the links reading about life within the exclusion zone and the possibility of a solar farm. The content and how easy it is to navigate is simply awesome. One article and its associated links can lead to hours of fascinating information at your fingertips. If I could change one thing it would be to include easier crossword puzzles for novices like me that are working our way up to the more difficult ones.
  • New logo/icon is disappointing

    By The Ludz
    The Guardian is great. I read it everyday. I'm dropping a star from my review though because the new icon is so bad. I loved the old logo. The blue circle-masked lowercase "g" was distinct, unique and popped out in a sea of apps on my home screen. The new, black and white, times roman, capital G in a circle feels like any generic news publication. Worse, the app is hard to find now when I scroll through my apps and the widget icon, wow, I can't even tell it's a G. It could be that stupid new uber icon for all I know. Seriously, I understand the world is a depressing, polorizing place these days and the new black/white logo might be meant to represent the times, but please, when Trump leaves office, can we have the old logo back? Finally, Yahoo and the Gap both changed their iconic logos an few years ago. The Gap changed theirs back and still have a business, yahoo not so much. Please don't be the next Yahoo!
  • World Class Journalism

    By inner city son
    The trenchant and incisive articles that fill the pages of the Guardian never fall to address and challenge solutions to the vexing and troubling issues of racism, nationalism, sexism, homophobia, economic disparity, war, human rights abuses and environmental degradation that afflict our world. The underlying premise of the Guardian is that these uncomfortable issues-which together pose an existential threat to humanity-must be boldly confronted rather than papered over, misrepresented, rationalized or falsely denied. The courage, thoroughness, rigor, lucidity and vision of the editorial board and reportorial staff are extraordinary in this era of the largely predominating corporate-driven and corporate-compromised reporting in clear evidence in Western societies and far beyond. The Guardian is to be deeply commended for its status as one of the world’s leading journals of record. It is both invaluable and irreplaceable!!! Thank you so much!!! All the Best, Leon Michael Jones, Los Angeles.
  • Great newspaper, but the app redesign is a major step back!

    By AstroPaul
    Latest version took another step backwards! What's with the tiny headlines? Most are one size, but others are small, and virtually unreadable. Make them all the same larger size — or, give readers an option to do that! The recent change in design colors remains hard on the eyes. The red-and-black scheme with BIG, BLACK, bolded headline fonts make the text harder to read and focus on — and more tiring to scroll through. This new version SCREAMS cheap tabloid; a Rupert Murdoch look. Another major step backwards. In contrast, our other iPad still has the previous version on it, with the original blue icon, blue section heads, and regular font headlines. When I used that today, I was struck by how much better it was. Much gentler, easier to read, and more inviting! Please bring back the old color scheme. Or, at least, give users an option of color themes — new, classic, dark, outdoors, etc. You also need to open up commenting on more stories — e.g., even tech stories often omit them, but expert users have much to add. By the way, *stop* adding the “What to Watch” or “Culture” sections to our home pages. We delete it, but after a week or two, they reappear! As to the newspaper itself, keep up the good work! You are an invaluable source of diverse news and progressive perspectives.
  • Great redesign!

    By anna-aaaa
    I love the new redesign! I had mostly stopped reading after the last redesign a few years ago - the light weight font (especially in white text over magenta half-device-width squares) was really hard to read. I also found it cartoonish, but the main problem was I couldn’t read it. I went from a daily reader, to just checking occasionally for balance against my other news sources. The new design is bold, more serious, and easy to read. Thank you for respecting my larger type preference. I’m back as a reader! I have ignored, with some guilt, your donation requests. Going forward I’m happy to donate, as the format now allows me to enjoy your valuable content.
  • Reliable, Pertinent, Professional and Desperately Needed

    By PadraigO
    In these “fact free” times where many celebrate, encourage, create and disseminate misinformation, The Guardian is one of the few remaining beacons of evidence and research in this world. I use multiple sources of information to try to confirm news and information for myself. The Guardian is at the top of my list for reliability and pertinence. The Guardian also gets high points for the increasing courage required in these threatening times as one attempts to seek the truth. I appreciate that the Guardian doesn’t try to distract me with trivial entertainment type fluff stories.

  • Harsh design, solid reporting

    By human2nova
    I’ve enjoyed The Guardian’s reporting over the last couple of years, but just as I considered paying the monthly subscription to support their work, the redesign occurred. The announcement touting their new tabloid look was off-putting, and the color scheme chosen wasn’t any better. Why add to the stress of today’s news with an equally stressful red/black theme? The updated logo is bland, and lost the distinction of the blue icon, as well. I found myself opening the app and visiting the mobile site less and less, and now I’ll just delete the app from my phone. 5 stars for excellent reporting, 1 star for a harsh, unwelcoming design leaves me with an average of 3 stars.
  • Good site, great journalism

    By Jaxpito
    As I newspaper journalist in the US whose newsroom is experiencing one painful cut after another,I know how important for democracy keeping newspapers alive is. I subscribe to the Guardian fir that reason. I wish I could get the newspaper form actually but the site is good. My only complaint is the new version has the table of contents or menu button on the bottom right. It’s tough to get used to after so many years at the top left. Minor issue, really. Good job Guardian. I’ll support you always. Craig in Providence
  • Excellent news app, mostly

    By The Ear Eclectic
    The layout and controls make the app easy to use and easy to read. Content is color coded for ease in identifying the type of article, such as opinion, news or video. However, there is one "feature" where it loses points: tap and hold an item to save it for later. It sounds like a nice way to do it, but I can't tell you how many times a day I accidentally rest a finger too long on an article and it gets saved. I guess I have fat, lazy fingers, at least on a tablet. On the phone it is not as bad.
