Improvements still needed Text doesn't get obscured by the copyright notice in the latest version, but you still can't change the size of the text. And where is the Share button? It's described in the instructions and in the description in the Play Store, but nowhere to be seen. Their support people also keep referring to buttons that aren't there. I don't think they know their IOS from their Android.
Is this a joke? With crashes even occurring in the settings menu and the Guardian expecting people to pay subscriptions this app certainly is a bad joke. After nearly half a year an update has been made. Hopefully the Guardian are ready to give it their full support.
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.
So disappointing I love the idea of this app but the execution is just shockingly bad for a paid service (especially compared to site and regular app). With a bit of development it could be great so hope the Guardian take notice of the reviews at some point. Not being able to change the font size or manually zoom is just stupid with the variety of screen sizes and resolutions on Android. I`ve now tried the Kindle edition, Pressreader and this but will stick to the (paid app). Come on guys, I want to give you more money!
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.
