Worked well for 3 weeks then failed to load without uninstall and reinstall, this happened twice and then the app wouldn't open at all. Very little help or advice available. I have paid good money for this because it was very good when it worked. I thought I was going to have to cancel my subscription unless I could find a fix. The app updated itself around 18th August 2016 and then ceased to work. My ASUS Phone Pad needed a system update to run the updated app, it is now working OK. Found under settings under the About heading, it took about 20 minutes in all. So far so good.
Disappointed Guardian subscriber It is unreliable as it frequently tells me no new issues can be found, despite me seeing the cover of the day's newspaper. It is not a WiFi issue and the only way is to update the app ( if there is one) or uninstall it and reinstall. I have had to do this again today and now it no longer recognises my ID and postcode so I cannot read the paper I have paid for. This app is so disappointing. It really lets down the brand and as it is the vehicle paid subscriptions are viewed by it is not upto standard.
A bit flaky when doing the early morning download before I wake up. Makes good use of Android intents by opening the app for Guardian URLs, so even a link on Twitter gets the best native rendering.
Constant crashes. Great newspaper let down by lousy app. After persevering for several years I have finally lost patience with this app, which constantly crashes, and have cancelled my subscription. My advice is to stick to the paper and free web versions of the Guardian.
As a regular Guardian reader i love the convenience of this app. It lets me read the daily newspaper without the paper. It loses one star simply because it is restricted to tablets. I would love to be able to use it on my phone,
1. Old editions have to be discarded manually (advanced tab) or they fill memory right up (Android). 2. Cannot zoom text.
