  • 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”. And, the old app with blue, yellow and purple was Sooo much better looking than this awful black and red color. Thankfully I didn’t update it on my iPad.
  • It Just Works

    By Chicken-pasta
    No paywall, no nonsense, great news.
  • 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.
  • Best newspaper

    By LordGynex
    It's good to able to trust a news outlet such as this one
  • 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.
  • The best source of news

    By JidayyyyHosp
    Reliable and dependable source of global news
  • 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...
  • Simply the best

    By Earplugs next time
    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!
