The Guardian App Reviews

  • Great news source, with just an alright app

    By chrislowder
    Despite not having a clue how to go about solving the Cryptic crosswords, I still love The Guardian as a news source. I just wish they’d design their app using iOS UI guidelines, especially adopting tabs at the bottom of the screen. Hamburger menus are so frustrating to see, especially ones that overlap and obscure the content you’re trying to read...
  • Great newspaper, but the app redesign is a major step back!

    By AstroPaul
    Alas, the new design is hard on the eyes. The red-and-black scheme and larger, BLACK, bolded headline fonts make the text much harder to read and even focus on — and more tiring to read and scroll through. This new version SCREAMS cheap tabloid, Rupert Murdoch look. A 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 section to our home pages. We delete it, but after a week or two, it reappears! As to the newspaper itself, keep up the good work! You are an invaluable source of diverse news and progressive perspectives.
  • Simply the best

    Journalism I have found on the web. I no longer feel like mushroom! The often witty but sometimes tragic comments are always a source of entertainment. A great British newspaper.
  • A different perspective on news around the world!

    By Project Hound
    Being an American it's nice to get a different take on news happening in our country. A great variety of topics covered. I like the music coverage. I too subscribe thru a small monthly fee...well worth it!
  • Excellent

    By keanakakoi
    Excellent app (not talking about the content, which is in a category by itself)! Small footprint, easy on resources, runs even on my 1st gen iPad mini w/o a problem (while other apps crash or not even start). Content is well organized and presented. Thanks Guardian!
  • Inclusive World News

    By lightscriptor
    Their researched journalism is global and accurate. I trust them for consistent professionalism. I have read them for decades.
  • No Longer My Favourite News App 🙁

    By schoowa
    Updated Review: “Tabloid” is the perfect word to describe the recent redesign of the Guardian app. Its classic colour scheme has been replaced with a lurid and sensationalistic format that I find almost impossible to read. Reading the daily news in this age of worldwide strife and turmoil can be quite disturbing, and the layout and colour scheme of this updated app seem to have been purposefully designed to amplify the viewers anxiety level. I have been a Guardian subscriber for several years, but after much soul-searching I have decided that it is best for my emotional well-being to avoid viewing this anxiety-inducing reinterpretation of the classic Guardian app. Unfortunately, my decision means that I have cancelled my longstanding paid subscription to this publication. From now on, if I feel the need to peruse The Guardian, I will simply access it with my content blocker equipped browser. So long, Guardian app… Original Review: My favourite news app; well worth the cost of a subscription.
  • The Guardian

    By Myromax
    Essential to a free society.
  • Well done news from a fresh perspective

    By Hbbird
    In depth stories and fluffier stories from a British perspective.
  • Hard on old eyes

    By Baahh
    As the usual news is depressing enough I’m also finding the colors and graphics difficult to look at. Content is ok most of the time. There is quite a bit of opinion disguised as “news”.
