Was great, now terrible Keeps crashing out since my tablet updated to lollipop. Unusable now. Mailed support, no response after more than a week. Poor.
very good + font size variable You can download the entire paper in 30 seconds and then switch off networking, which suits how I like to use the tablet. This makes it worth subscribing to rather than using the (free) internet version. You can then store a week's worth or up to a month of the paper on the device, which you can have with you at all times to dip into, when on the train or wherever. Have just discovered a trick to enlarge the font so that the width of the text automatically fills the screen, do a double tap. Changing the font size is critical so that you can read it on a smaller tablet screen.
Crashes all the time, videos don't work, crossword issues. Have put up with it for too long - cancelling subscription this week. Sort it out Guardian.
Crashing Getting very frustrated with this app now as it keeps crashing. Please sort it out or I will consider cancelling my subscription
Fix for crash problem Guardian support were excellent - when I rang to complain about the app constantly crashing on my Nexus 7 (2013) they suggested uninstalling the app, and reinstalling, and this has worked! Upgrading from 1 star to 3 stars. Why only 3? Well, although it's generally a great app, there is no way (that I can find) to increase the text size. It's just too small to be comfortable without having to find my reading glasses. Also I noticed it crashes if I select the FAQ option from settings, so a star off for that, as it makes me a bit nervous that it still isn't as stable as it needs to be, and that the regular crashes could return at any time. Still, better than it was, and won't be cancelling my subscription after all (yet).
Very unreliable A world-renowned newspaper that claims to be at the forefront of digital content should not allow itself to be let down by this poorly developed and unstable Android app. I can put up with the blurred graphics and occasional misplaced text, but can no longer tolerate the freqent crashes and blank pages. Especially frustrating when traveling here in India when you may only have a few hours internet per day. Sorry, but unless it improves quickly we will be cancelling our subscription.
