I had hoped that by now, the functionality to customize the front page would be restored. Currently, the opening page for me is mostly hidden as I have zero interest in those sections. Worse, some sections can't be hidden, and there's the large Wordiply link. I don't love needing to navigate between tabs to read the sections that interest me. Why was the ability to personalize the app degraded? As much as I love The Guardian, I will likely cancel my subscription.

Update: app is fine, but implementation of mandatory login means it's uninstalled. Just the first step towards a firewall. Too bad. Great news coverage, but new UI is terrible. Looks like it was created by a first year student. Update: still great new coverage, but now an amateurish implementation of pop-up full page ads, make the app almost unusable. One has to wonder if the developers bother to do any testing.

Update--everything was fine until I logged in. Now, when I open the app, it freezes and I have to force quit I very often get news before I hear it in the U. S. Media. I love the in depth stories that The Guardian provides. The app is good but has some odd issues. It doesn't always keep me signed in, even when I don't sign out. Also, I get story emails and it doesn't give me an option to open them in the app. The listings in my categories are often less than on the website
