Your news coverage is awesome, broad, comprehensive and thorough and the app refreshingly functions properly and reliably in the "free" version. I live on a fixed income and unfortunately cannot afford the "premium" version which seems to unlock many great options. I've tried many news services and The Guardian is by far the absolute best!! Thank you!!

It works extremely well. The news has a different viewpoint than American apps. I read this an the New York times daily. I find the guardian more informative. Also, no problem using app, I experience repeated problems loading the times. I cancelled my subscription to the times for that reason. I plan on subscribing to the Guardian. It is an excellent source of news.

Great app. Timely news, good graphics, excellent content. I like that I can bookmark articles, download if desired, and search by category or region. The Guardian has been diligent in creating a model of reader-funded journalism, which is an unfortunate byproduct of the destruction of local news, but I'm happy to support excellent journalism at this reasonable monthly rate. UPDATE: Regarding app functionality - I really dislike that there is no search function!! Removing 1 star.
