Why I read the Guardian
by Peter Stedman on 2019/10/22 22:37
The Guardian allows me to access news that I feel is a break from the corporate press domestically. Their coverage of climate change is hand in hand with activism. Many of the links provided have been instrumental in linking me to networks engaged in social activism. It is this binding of journalism to action (theory/praxis) that is lacking in US print journalism. It tends to encourage apathy. In addition, the Guardian’s long reads I have archived on not a few occasions as their deeper treatment warrants reflection and I appreciate that. This, too, marks a break from the sound byte culture. Peter Stedman
Pulling the covers off
by Revcom.us on 2019/10/22 18:39
The Guardian always offers a surprise in their deep dive reporting on critical geopolitical controversies, offering reporting biased toward the truth.
Fresh and unbiased news
by Nomoreauto on 2019/10/22 15:59
My go to for world news. I get more from the Guardian than I do from local news sources in the USA. News, lifestyle and sports reporting are all of the highest quality.
excellent journal
by migcccs on 2019/10/22 00:20
I suscribe to NYT and WP... this newspaper is as good!
Excellent and in depth
by Skyperwhatsapp on 2019/10/21 12:47
Excellent and in-depth articles on UK, European, American and World news. Very informative podcasts, with revealing information on culture, food, art, and events. Unbiased reporting, and an array of articles that open mind and heart. I don’t know what else you could ask for from a news source. And some of the articles have in-depth reporting of the goings-on for human beings around the world that will shock and surprise even though most hardened mind.

by dejanK on 2019/10/19 15:15
In this day and age, this is how a newspaper should be. There are others, more expansive ones, there are tabloids, but none is more to the point than the Guardian. I occasionally give a donation to help out, because we need it out there and we need it to be free to all the people, so please do it if you can.
Best newspapers ever,love it 🙏👍

Good journalism is worth paying for
by mowenb on 2019/10/17 17:19
This is a great source for US and world news, more than worth the nominal subscription for such quality reporting. Also, great seasonal recipes if you cook.
Fee and objective news
by Bernie Jordan on 2019/10/17 14:58
Best free source of news out there, even better than many subscription based publications like WAPO and NYT
Objectivity is Key
by Rich of Eastlake on 2019/10/17 03:00
The Guardian is one of the most objective and therefore reliable sources for current events in the U.S. and around the world. At a time when authoritarian governments and corrupt politicians mislead and mischaracterize events of the day, The Guardian is essential reading in order to get to the truth.
Real News

by lmcrowder on 2019/10/14 02:49
The Guardian is a class act! Clear, unbiased, and truthful. So glad that I subscribed.
Too US centric
by TS Anil on 2019/10/13 23:56
I know I am in the US but nevertheless I find the Guardian here to be too US centric. The reason I am reading the Guardian is to get a different perspective on US news and to get news of other parts of the world but I don’t see that at all.
Great app, great news site!
by forslarelle on 2019/10/13 13:18
The Guardian really provides top quality reporting and investigative journalism. We read it every day. It is so important to have a source for researched information.
Guardian always
by ronlong99 on 2019/10/12 15:04
I have always felt that the Guardian provides the most reliable journalism. Not living in the U.K. where I could read the daily paper edition, the mobile app provides a great alternative. Daily informative news. Wouldn’t do without.

Better app, better on climate, better on politics. Just better.
Accurate, Insightful, Intelligent and Current
by ijennyr on 2019/10/10 17:44
I live in California and read the Guardian online every day. Its reporting is accurate, in-depth, and current, and covers international, national, and even local news. I know no other free online newspaper that compares. (Donations and memberships are optional). It provides excellent, reliable coverage of a wide range of topics - politics, science, the environment, sports, the arts, health, and lifestyle, for example. Its current without rushing to judgment. The opinion pieces are always thoughtful and thought-provoking. For clarity in the tumult, I turn to the Guardian
Well done!

App is wrongly named The Guardian. It’s really The Corbyn, the official pseudo-outlet of Momentum and the Labour Party.
The Guardian is terrific and unique!
by Dr. Pat K. on 2019/10/07 05:17
Frequently, the Guardian covers crucial stories in depth, that often do not even appear in other major newspapers. Reading the Guardian is essential for informed citizens.

It’s rigorous fact-based journalism, from a progressive perspective. A good sense of humor coexists quite comfortably beside a strong sense of history — all things we need so much right now
dark mode please
by capncuddles420 on 2019/10/05 20:12
please release an update supporting dark mode. also, long pressing on articles should bring up the system share menu, not the guardian-specific account functions, since far more people using the app will use the share menu than will use a separate special guardian account to save or share articles.
Pretty good but used to be better
by jo niles on 2019/10/05 00:23
The content is distinctly left leaning and usually manages to avoid being too strident, though I have to say it is noticeably a little less sober than it once was. Once upon a time, its format and presentation was classier, more elegant, and easier to read than it is now. Indeed, I was sad to see it lose its white and blue format and its distinctive font. Nowadays The Guardian looks and feels like so many other news sites and has lost much of its individuality. Yet despite the old branding being far better, I still persevere with The Guardian because the quality of its reporting does redeem it a little.
Love the Live feature
by AmericanAddict on 2019/10/04 15:30
I quit Twitter and I feed my waning addiction with the Guardian’s live feature so that I at least know the key moments of the Trump debacle as they occur.
I Like The Guardian App A Lot!
by David Scott Pearce on 2019/10/03 15:21
Hardware: iPhone X; Software: iOS 13.1.2 I’m a U.S.-American subscriber to The Guardian. I have no issues with the iPhone app. It works just great. • However, something is definitely NOT working great in the U.K. right now, Brexit, which it appears more and more likely that you will crash out of the EU in less than a month! • I dedicate this review to the memory of MP Jo Cox, and the ridiculous PM you’re lumbered with now.

Amazing!
by FargoFlyer on 2019/10/01 22:35
I love the perspective that the Guardian provides. I lived in London for a year when I was 19 (50 years ago), and I still appreciate the view on America that I get from another country. Additionally, the reporting is first rate. The Guardian is conducting investigations and collecting statistics that no American newspaper is doing—indeed the FBI says it relies on the Guardian’s statistics to determine the number of gun-related deaths in this country (because the NRA funded congress doesn’t allow that kind of act by US government agencies!). I strongly recommend the Guardian.

Interface is very ambiguous
by electricmustang1966 on 2019/09/25 18:57
It’s hard to dive into stories with the confusing interface
A odd fashion substantive newspaper.
by CaroleChicago on 2019/09/19 22:11
Excellent journalism. Comprehensive world news and in depth stories, even series, on subjects illustrative of social or cultural trends - like police brutality in one California county or the Opiod Crisis or children bombed and starving in Yemen. It is a newspaper we need to keep alive. The Guardian, true to its name, keeps an eye on the world and informs us of what her marvelous array of reporters see and learn. Give money, whatever little or big you can. I give $25 a month, even as a social security fixed income 77 year old.

Why The guardian
by w84gdo on 2019/09/08 19:48
As the truthfulness of the American President and his enablers in government are shown to daily traffic in demonstrable lies, and the corporately cowed Mainstream US Media remains, at best: not up to the task of identifying and sharing truth (at worst: complicit in deliberately ignoring, and underreporting to the American people) I am forced (and grateful) to turn to an objective news source with integrity like the Guardian. Thank you.

by amin201875 on 2019/07/25 18:04
there are some changes needed to be made, especially in the latest version where the design has changed. I believe it’s really hideous and asymmetrical. Moreover, sometimes when reading an article the app crashes out or lags a lot to the point that I have to erase it from ram and launch it again. Otherwise It’s a great app with a better content.

I was in Iran when a Guardian reporter took great risk proving that those slaughtered by the Shah’s immortal guard were mostly woman and children and the elderly massacred at Jaulli Square and not terrorist. She went to the cemetery and examined the bodies. As a consequence the Shah had SAVAK force her to leave Iran.

The best news app 10 stars
by BetaCancri290 on 2018/02/05 17:55
I purchased the monthly subscription and it is well worth it. The news that is covered and the links within articles is simply “Outstanding!” To be able to read current news and link to older stories concerning issues is incredibly fascinating and informative. Each day I find new information and detailed stories I didn’t know existed. I love the stories. Was reading up on Chernobyl and the newly installed enclosure and went through each of the links reading about life within the exclusion zone and the possibility of a solar farm. The content and how easy it is to navigate is simply awesome. One article and its associated links can lead to hours of fascinating information at your fingertips. If I could change one thing it would be to include easier crossword puzzles for novices like me that are working our way up to the more difficult ones.
Great redesign!
by anna-aaaa on 2018/01/20 14:39
I love the new redesign! I had mostly stopped reading after the last redesign a few years ago - the light weight font (especially in white text over magenta half-device-width squares) was really hard to read. I also found it cartoonish, but the main problem was I couldn’t read it. I went from a daily reader, to just checking occasionally for balance against my other news sources. The new design is bold, more serious, and easy to read. Thank you for respecting my larger type preference. I’m back as a reader! I have ignored, with some guilt, your donation requests. Going forward I’m happy to donate, as the format now allows me to enjoy your valuable content.
New logo/icon is disappointing
by The Ludz on 2018/01/17 04:06
The Guardian is great. I read it everyday. I'm dropping a star from my review though because the new icon is so bad. I loved the old logo. The blue circle-masked lowercase "g" was distinct, unique and popped out in a sea of apps on my home screen. The new, black and white, times roman, capital G in a circle feels like any generic news publication. Worse, the app is hard to find now when I scroll through my apps and the widget icon, wow, I can't even tell it's a G. It could be that stupid new uber icon for all I know. Seriously, I understand the world is a depressing, polorizing place these days and the new black/white logo might be meant to represent the times, but please, when Trump leaves office, can we have the old logo back? Finally, Yahoo and the Gap both changed their iconic logos an few years ago. The Gap changed theirs back and still have a business, yahoo not so much. Please don't be the next Yahoo!
Reading the Guardian
by stephenIT on 2018/11/11 21:51
I don’t who will read this. I find the Guardian’s ability to include reporting, analysis, reflection and comparison within the same piece constantly refreshing. In the US the ‘serious’ papers separate reporting and analysis. The front page carries the facts without comment although the subject matter may imply treason and an existential constructional crisis. You have to wade through to the opinion sections on back page (pace NYT) for any analysis. Even then, it is a week later and, in order not to appear biased, they include pieces from either side of the fence, no matter where in the swamp the fence has been erected. Some stories - the role of Russian and other oligarch money floating the US property and fine art markets - hang around in plain sight for decades without being reported. When the festering sore breaks the surface, it is with with instant shock and horror - but that is another subject.
Great newspaper, but the app redesign is a major step back!
by AstroPaul on 2018/05/09 10:34
Latest version took another step backwards! What's with the tiny headlines? Most are one size, but others are small, and virtually unreadable. Make them all the same larger size — or, give readers an option to do that! The recent change in design colors remains hard on the eyes. The red-and-black scheme with BIG, BLACK, bolded headline fonts make the text harder to read and focus on — and more tiring to scroll through. This new version SCREAMS cheap tabloid; a Rupert Murdoch look. Another major step backwards. In contrast, our other iPad still has the previous version on it, with the original blue icon, blue section heads, and regular font headlines. When I used that today, I was struck by how much better it was. Much gentler, easier to read, and more inviting! Please bring back the old color scheme. Or, at least, give users an option of color themes — new, classic, dark, outdoors, etc. You also need to open up commenting on more stories — e.g., even tech stories often omit them, but expert users have much to add. By the way, *stop* adding the “What to Watch” or “Culture” sections to our home pages. We delete it, but after a week or two, they reappear! As to the newspaper itself, keep up the good work! You are an invaluable source of diverse news and progressive perspectives.
Pretty good but used to be better
by jo niles on 2019/10/05 00:23
The content is distinctly left leaning and usually manages to avoid being too strident, though I have to say it is noticeably a little less sober than it once was. Once upon a time, its format and presentation was classier, more elegant, and easier to read than it is now. Indeed, I was sad to see it lose its white and blue format and its distinctive font. Nowadays The Guardian looks and feels like so many other news sites and has lost much of its individuality. Yet despite the old branding being far better, I still persevere with The Guardian because the quality of its reporting does redeem it a little.
My Tiny violin plays for The Guardian
by Tinyviolin on 2019/01/31 17:19
So let me get this straight, you appeal to the populous for funds to save your (so called) unbiased Guardian, while stating, “No one edits your Editor” (no one puts Baby in a corner, right?) despite his/her blatant ignorance of immigration law. You falsely label those who oppose ILLEGAL entry into our sovereign nation “haters of immigration”. Once again, People don’t hate immigrants, they adamantly and vehemently oppose those who disregard our country’s rule of law. That is not hate, that is tough love, sister! Let me tell you this, you are fools. I won’t waste another minute reading your yellow trash. I had not idea until today how far flung the Guardian had become. You made it clear. You will not understand my complaint because you are not equipped to process this view and that is why your readership is sucking wind. You and people like you are stubborn. At the very least, your editor should be Edited, for sure!
I like the journalism just fine, thanks
by 99uniform on 2019/01/06 19:08
2019 jan 6: It has been little over a year since i wrote the older review below and still feel the same. I do have one question, is it more beneficial to anyone by my becoming a subscriber versus keeping my current annual supporter status? What’s different? Older review: After having used the free app for about a year, decided to become an annual supporting member. Revenues generated go back into the journalism and not into any extraneous bells and whistles. (I do not consider providing for a web presence extraneous, these days it becomes a necessity.) I suppose it is my way of supporting the Free Press.
Poor UX, UI and IA
by marc shillum on 2019/01/30 03:01
Guardian team, I love The Guardian, I really love The Guardian. You app is making me hate using The Guardian. I get it, you want users to upgrade to premium, and so you give prominent call-outs to part of the experience non paid users have no access to. But placing the hamburger in the bottom right isn’t a natural pattern. And creating more prominence for premium features than the nav is ridiculous. Please fix the nav, it just creates such a poor experience. Once you’ve fixed the Nav can you take a deep look at IA. The visual information hierarchy places important stories on dark grey backgrounds, and further down the page less important stories on bright white. Red headlines aren’t accessible on grey. Then the interaction paradigm. Left and right are taken by your paid features. But hamburger opens a drawer on the left which is different. Put both paid features on the right and keep the left for Nav. Or find a new way to invoke paid features, don’t duplicate. Lastly can you fix the type ramp?? I counted 10+ weights and sizes. It’s really off-putting to the eye. If you fix all of this I promise I’ll pay, just give me visual calm , be organized, thoughtful and intentional about elements. Let the words and images sing.
The Guardian is real news
by mdffnewsreader on 2019/01/31 13:35
Please support accurate and in-depth reporting. The Guardian reports from an international perspective, covering world events that are often not picked-up by US news sources. Also; a wide variety of news stories, public interest, and social topics are covered. While their free coverage is broad everyone must accept that The Guardian, (And NYT & WAPO amongst others), must still pay the bills in order to function. So; please provide financial support by buying a paid subscription. [I; in no part, have any business dealings with this or other news sources. I do believe in paying my share].
Reliable, Pertinent, Professional and Desperately Needed
by PadraigO on 2018/08/14 14:31
In these “fact free” times where many celebrate, encourage, create and disseminate misinformation, The Guardian is one of the few remaining beacons of evidence and research in this world. I use multiple sources of information to try to confirm news and information for myself. The Guardian is at the top of my list for reliability and pertinence. The Guardian also gets high points for the increasing courage required in these threatening times as one attempts to seek the truth. I appreciate that the Guardian doesn’t try to distract me with trivial entertainment type fluff stories.
No paywall. Honest and diligent leftward leaning news.
by Benlewiscreative on 2018/11/13 03:55
They hold themselves to high journalistic standards one of which prevents them from putting up a paywall. Journalism is essential I wish they would allow you to support them on a sliding scale. My current job situation won’t allow it. Only improvement would be a slide towards the center to fill the void in nuanced and democratically available (free) journalism. They are the last ones standing it seems and they lean so left. Download. Read. Support. Knowledge is our lifeblood and without free journalism we all die of ignorance.
Thank you

Accurate, Insightful, Intelligent and Current
by ijennyr on 2019/10/10 17:44
I live in California and read the Guardian online every day. Its reporting is accurate, in-depth, and current, and covers international, national, and even local news. I know no other free online newspaper that compares. (Donations and memberships are optional). It provides excellent, reliable coverage of a wide range of topics - politics, science, the environment, sports, the arts, health, and lifestyle, for example. Its current without rushing to judgment. The opinion pieces are always thoughtful and thought-provoking. For clarity in the tumult, I turn to the Guardian
Harsh design, solid reporting
by human2nova on 2018/05/05 04:34
I’ve enjoyed The Guardian’s reporting over the last couple of years, but just as I considered paying the monthly subscription to support their work, the redesign occurred. The announcement touting their new tabloid look was off-putting, and the color scheme chosen wasn’t any better. Why add to the stress of today’s news with an equally stressful red/black theme? The updated logo is bland, and lost the distinction of the blue icon, as well. I found myself opening the app and visiting the mobile site less and less, and now I’ll just delete the app from my phone. 5 stars for excellent reporting, 1 star for a harsh, unwelcoming design leaves me with an average of 3 stars.
Good site, great journalism
by Jaxpito on 2018/09/22 12:20
As I newspaper journalist in the US whose newsroom is experiencing one painful cut after another,I know how important for democracy keeping newspapers alive is. I subscribe to the Guardian fir that reason. I wish I could get the newspaper form actually but the site is good. My only complaint is the new version has the table of contents or menu button on the bottom right. It’s tough to get used to after so many years at the top left. Minor issue, really. Good job Guardian. I’ll support you always. Craig in Providence
A better source of news and opinion
by 9robins on 2019/01/06 18:13
I think it’s a nose ahead of two eminent sources of American journalism the Washington Post & The NY Times, for these reasons. (1) It provides a wider global perspective, which American papers tend to overlook. (2) It covers matters British. The UK might consist of ~1.3 small islands, but the United States and the UK remain linked by centuries of history, customs, and values. (3) It gives us Americans a perspective on ourselves and our country that comes from outside our self-absorption. Those of us who try to be well-informed need all three perspectives.
A great read, in more ways than one
by Kaya1332 on 2017/11/11 18:18
The Guardian, as a news source, is a great read. The reporting seems reliable and fresh. Points covered are often not the same old, same old that other sources spew, as if they’re barely rewriting a wire service story. Stories are a solid balance of international and national focus. The layout is visually easy to look at and follow, making it quick and simple to pick what I want to read. The iphone app is also reliable.
Excellent news app, mostly
by The Ear Eclectic on 2017/10/06 21:18
The layout and controls make the app easy to use and easy to read. Content is color coded for ease in identifying the type of article, such as opinion, news or video. However, there is one "feature" where it loses points: tap and hold an item to save it for later. It sounds like a nice way to do it, but I can't tell you how many times a day I accidentally rest a finger too long on an article and it gets saved. I guess I have fat, lazy fingers, at least on a tablet. On the phone it is not as bad.
Review of a reader of the news
by kopoleman on 2018/07/31 14:58
What The Guardian has achieved with this application is to show to what extent freedom of the press can go to in the modern world. To be a newspaper free off subscription and personal targeted advertisements is something that only a handful of newspapers have provided for their readers at the modern age. In all impartiality it must be said that the famously known leftist stance of The Guardian can be felt in their presentation of the news. But that just might be the reason that it has been highly popular at our time.
Amazing!
by FargoFlyer on 2019/10/01 22:35
I love the perspective that the Guardian provides. I lived in London for a year when I was 19 (50 years ago), and I still appreciate the view on America that I get from another country. Additionally, the reporting is first rate. The Guardian is conducting investigations and collecting statistics that no American newspaper is doing—indeed the FBI says it relies on the Guardian’s statistics to determine the number of gun-related deaths in this country (because the NRA funded congress doesn’t allow that kind of act by US government agencies!). I strongly recommend the Guardian.
Pretty good most of the time
by brainzmatter on 2018/10/10 00:16
I could love this paper if they’d dump a few silly and unqualified “opinion” writers. They also run utter rubbish on some topics and then call it a “controversy” when it’s just a ridiculous bit of false equivalency. The science page itself is quite strong, especially Ian Sample. The Podcast has suffered from the loss of Alok Jah and the subsequent addition of some young women with horrible presentation skills. “Talk me through it” is not a substitute for interviewing skills. Thank goodness for Mr Sample. I hang in here for a few of the outstanding columnists; i.e., Jill Abrahamson and Richard Wollffe.
My go-to source for news
by adovelikeboy on 2018/09/22 17:42
The app works well on my iOS 12 phone. It’s stable and I find it easier to navigate than other online editions of print newspapers, e.g. The Washington Post. The journalism is reliably truthful and fact-checked. As well as in depth UK reporting The Guardian covers international news with less of an American slant than many English-language outlets. There are well-reasoned and interesting analysis pieces and longer form essays, often with excellent graphic design, although the more visually impressive pieces show up much better in a computer browser than in the app. Opinion pieces are still squarely in the progressive and leftist range. It’s pro-Labour but never just a partisan mouthpiece for the party. One change: The Guardian is no longer littered with the spelling mistakes and typos for which the print version used to be famous.
A odd fashion substantive newspaper.
by CaroleChicago on 2019/09/19 22:11
Excellent journalism. Comprehensive world news and in depth stories, even series, on subjects illustrative of social or cultural trends - like police brutality in one California county or the Opiod Crisis or children bombed and starving in Yemen. It is a newspaper we need to keep alive. The Guardian, true to its name, keeps an eye on the world and informs us of what her marvelous array of reporters see and learn. Give money, whatever little or big you can. I give $25 a month, even as a social security fixed income 77 year old.
Like Having a Brilliant Friend
by LaRougerie on 2017/12/22 12:36
This is a terrific news source. I read it first now, and it’s like a smart friend who’s always done the research and gives you a news story AND the background AND a fair-minded but able-to-be-outraged perspective. I started reading it because no other news source had so many reporters globally. I stayed because they’re right on top of breaking news AND they have a great arts section. Now I’m starting to find the recipes tempting ....
Disappointing Redesign
by Annoyed user1726 on 2018/01/15 15:18
The new app is visually inferior. Fonts are bolded, making them blocky and heavy, letters atop each other with improper spacing. The color change is also bothersome: where cool blue predominated we now have reds and blacks. The excessive use of red (especially in the Spotlight section) gives an ugly vibe of Alarm. It used to be the headlines and content that gave reason to be concerned: now just scrolling through the app and getting hit with bold, red words causes anxiety. It seems a step backward. There’s also much more dead white space. Would love to see a reversion to cooler colors and crisper, unbolded lettering. The content here will keep me coming back but probably not as frequently or happily as before.
A Great Read!
by dblea... Donna Burns on 2018/09/11 19:55
Not wealthy or well known, I remain better informed than most because I read the Guardian. In my 70’s, disabled and living on Social Security income, I have worked hard in my life and raised three kids to adulthood. I don’t want to lose awareness of what is happening in my country or on this beautiful Earth. I have little to spend on obtaining news but my daughter with whom I live assists me in handling my subscription. I’m grateful for both my daughter and The Guardian. Donna Burns
Great redesign
by Mark in Brooklyn on 2018/01/15 19:16
This is a great app, as long as you have connectivity. I really wish it would allow for better offline reading without having to find the stories, save them, and then remove them from save later on. The daily edition downloads the entire newspaper but that’s a separate subscription. Still, awesome newspaper that’s keeping up with the times without compromising journalistic quality or integrity.
The Guardian is the best
by Milesinla on 2018/10/08 23:08
The best. Did I say the best. Ten years ago, when I lived in LA, I would buy the Guardian Weekly, custom printed and bound by staples. It got me up early lest it be sold out. The Guardian gives me a world view of the world. I miss the paper version but when I go to England maybe I’ll get my fix. When I’m London I lose out to the seven newspapers I try and read daily. The internet makes the world a smaller place the Guardian is the go to single source for me.
A bit bogged down in US politics and a bit too far left
by folk-fan on 2018/08/30 02:02
As an American, I like offshore perspective. At their best, publications based outside the US have fresh insights and a detachment from the muck and mire of the desperate attempts of most US media outlets to sway, solidify, and sell political perspective. The Guardian gets just a little too close to the US, has a few too many US readers, a few too many left-leaning editorialists based in its US office, and it is starting to show. I like journalism that is aimed at readers who don't quite understand the US, and who certainly can't participate in US politics.
Always great except when it prewrites my recommendation for me
by RadioHead222 on 2018/10/15 20:29
The Guardian is a refreshing daily read, alongside my reading of the New York Times. It has less coverage but more attitude. It also is a little more international. I have to say that I resent the fact that the Guardian marketing department sent me a pre-written recommendation for the Guardian when I offered to recommend it on the App Store. Too bad. This does paper deserves better.
Daily must read
by DonnaU504 on 2017/12/19 19:26
The Guardian is great- I visit several times a day, looking for new content. Perhaps there are other providers of important information that the Guardian covers, but I've yet to find them. I also like coverage from around the world which is woefully lacking from most US providers. The app is simple to use and laid out consistently, day to day. No downside to downloading.
Real Investigative Reporting
by J Tuttle on 2018/10/09 00:26
Ever notice that the Guardian is instrumental in the greatest exposes of our time? Think about it; Snowden released his story thru them, the Panama Papers on foreign hidden assets revealed by them, the Steele dossier etc etc. The Guardian actually reports the stories that other news organizations spend time speculating on. Their news organization doesn’t bog down on trivia, minutia & hyperbole but digs up the info, raw & un editorialized. That is the opposite of ‘fake’!
Always good to get a different perspective.
by SusanOtter on 2018/10/08 04:09
I am enjoying this app a great deal. I like seeing how someone from another country (UK) sees my country (US). There is a US version of the paper. I especially appreciate that The Guardian is keeping track of the number of US citizens killed by police. This information is not easily found in the US. Although access is free for this app, I donate whenever possible.
Love the update
by Reganwarren on 2018/01/16 07:30
Thanks for giving the app such a huge overhaul! Absolutely loving the fluidity of the app and the new aesthetic, minus the prominent red colors. I was definitely much more of a fan of the blue colors, as it comes off more trustworthy and benevolent. That might sound crazy but I think that’s definitely backed up by some psychology. Something to consider, but doesn’t take away from my review at all.
Increased pop ups
by h-232 on 2018/12/06 21:46
Great news, good app, well organized. But... since the last update, the exact same “Germany Works” advertisement continually pops up, sometimes 2-3 times per story read and nearly always without my touching the ad (accidentally); this ad even interrupts my reading of the ‘subscribe to the Guardian Premium’ app page. This bug is unfortunate because it makes using the free version of this news app nearly impossible and I dread switching news reports just to be free from this one, single, pestilent ad. It is insane and thoughtless.
Top Notch
by Ejaazi on 2018/02/08 21:12
It's the best news app I've tried so far outside of apps that pull from many sources. However, I'm not a fan of the new logo and color scheme. Blue and white was so much better. Update 2/8/18 Still the best, but now the tab button to get to the menu and settings does not stay at the top but scrolls along the side as you scroll and sits on top of articles partially blocking your view.
Start my morning with the Guardian
by Reads Science on 2018/08/01 15:38
The Guardian provides me with a non-American perspective on national and international news. That’s useful, because you never really see yourself as others see you. I often read stories that are not covered by US media. And I contribute, because I don’t want to lose the view from our most faithful ally.
Good app, good writing, annoying features
by Dani_EG on 2017/10/21 19:05
Make no mistake, I donated to The Guardian this year. Their reporting is top notch, and they don't put it behind a paywall. I respect that. However, if your app automatically opens stories I tried to open in Safari without asking me, it'll be deleted, without hesitation. I like reading in the app, but when I'm organizing sources from multiple sites to read up or write about a story, I can't waste time switching between apps for particular stories. So, while The Guardian is great, this app is not.
Stop Pestering Your Paying Customers
by PPrachun on 2018/11/19 12:28
Every single day now I get a pop-up message asking me if 'I'm enjoying the Guardian?' Just as bad as the non-paying version with its ads. Even after I’ve registered my initial 4 star rating, I still receive these daily torments. On today’s ‘review’, you get one star. Bye bye Guardian. I’ve had it with your millennial mindset needing constant approval and input with which to stroke your leftist ego.
Journalism: support it or allow powerful liars to carry on unexposed.
by carole raphaelle davis on 2018/12/28 02:50
We need journalism now more than ever. The Guardian provides us with the truth. In depth investigations, exposés, unvarnished facts, the science..give your support or live in the dark of ignorance. Our planet depends on journalism. The guardian has proven over the years that they can’t be bought. Give truth a hand. It’s cheap enough; subscribe today.
Real News to counter Real Fakes
by Periscope on 2019/01/09 03:30
Stereo vision requires two clear eyes to see the real world to understand perspective. Cover one eye and the world is flat. You no longer can see clearly how things relate to each other. The Guardian can be counted on for the necessary perspective to see and understand relationships & details to make better decisions. Read & see!
Fabulous App
by Angie Rocks on 2018/09/04 17:07
Absolutely brilliant and utterly fantastic. Super easy to use, the ability to follow specific journalists and even certain topics and then choosing whether or not to be ‘notified’ when said person/topic is published... quite possibly my favourite feature of this app! Everything, everyday, multiple times a day. Love this app!
Upgrade to ugliness
by ukiruku on 2018/03/08 19:25
I don’t usually take the time to review apps. As a devoted Guardian subscriber, though, have to say I hate the new app. Gone are the easy-on-the-eye blue and plum, the softer lines. Bring on fascistic, geometric black and red — along with white that makes the Nazi colors. In any case it’s all much harder on the eye, more off-putting to this graphic designer. I used to love clicking on that blue and white icon — by contrast the new app is like graphic barbed wire on the eye. Score one for a poor design choice. Like most upgrades these days, it’s a downgrade.
typos in almost every story
by gil54667 on 2018/11/10 14:32
I can't understand how any writer, let alone any editor, would post, let alone leave posted, any story with a typo. Occasionally typos are so egregious that a sentence will have the opposite meaning intended. It is so distracting that I find myself re-reading sentences and paragraphs to decypher the actual meaning. My own writing is sloppier than it used to be in this post-spelling and grammar era, which is why it is even more important for The Guardian to maintain high standards
Fantastic app
by Midwest Spirit on 2018/09/09 09:43
I have enjoyed this app and The Guardian for a long time. The app is stable and the information is fantastic. The information is put together well, and I turn to this news at least twice a day to get facts and unbiased opinions and news. I highly recommend it along with a subscription to The Guardian.
FANTASTIC
by farmerlawyer on 2018/12/09 21:28
The Guardian is the first place I go to find unbiased and oligarch-free news that is without influence from corporate special interests. I also read (and have read) the WaPo for over 15 years and recently (6mo) ago added TG to my reading list. Stories are concise, editing is top notch, and background is thorough. It’s now the first publication I read daily.
Guardian’s journalism is a standard in itself
by Chef Zubair on 2018/11/29 17:24
I have been reading The Guardian for many years. The newspaper keeps amazing me with their journalism - their language, their unflinching adherence to neutrality and their constant inquest to bring you verified information from across the globe, especially Europe and America. I am always a huge fan of their work.
Its awesome
by amin201875 on 2019/07/25 18:04
there are some changes needed to be made, especially in the latest version where the design has changed. I believe it’s really hideous and asymmetrical. Moreover, sometimes when reading an article the app crashes out or lags a lot to the point that I have to erase it from ram and launch it again. Otherwise It’s a great app with a better content.

Why I read the Guardian
by Peter Stedman on 2019/10/22 22:37
The Guardian allows me to access news that I feel is a break from the corporate press domestically. Their coverage of climate change is hand in hand with activism. Many of the links provided have been instrumental in linking me to networks engaged in social activism. It is this binding of journalism to action (theory/praxis) that is lacking in US print journalism. It tends to encourage apathy. In addition, the Guardian’s long reads I have archived on not a few occasions as their deeper treatment warrants reflection and I appreciate that. This, too, marks a break from the sound byte culture. Peter Stedman
Pulling the covers off
by Revcom.us on 2019/10/22 18:39
The Guardian always offers a surprise in their deep dive reporting on critical geopolitical controversies, offering reporting biased toward the truth.
Fresh and unbiased news
by Nomoreauto on 2019/10/22 15:59
My go to for world news. I get more from the Guardian than I do from local news sources in the USA. News, lifestyle and sports reporting are all of the highest quality.
excellent journal
by migcccs on 2019/10/22 00:20
I suscribe to NYT and WP... this newspaper is as good!
Excellent and in depth
by Skyperwhatsapp on 2019/10/21 12:47
Excellent and in-depth articles on UK, European, American and World news. Very informative podcasts, with revealing information on culture, food, art, and events. Unbiased reporting, and an array of articles that open mind and heart. I don’t know what else you could ask for from a news source. And some of the articles have in-depth reporting of the goings-on for human beings around the world that will shock and surprise even though most hardened mind.

In this day and age, this is how a newspaper should be. There are others, more expansive ones, there are tabloids, but none is more to the point than the Guardian. I occasionally give a donation to help out, because we need it out there and we need it to be free to all the people, so please do it if you can.
Best newspapers ever,love it 🙏👍

Fee and objective news

Best free source of news out there, even better than many subscription based publications like WAPO and NYT
Objectivity is Key
by Rich of Eastlake on 2019/10/17 03:00
The Guardian is one of the most objective and therefore reliable sources for current events in the U.S. and around the world. At a time when authoritarian governments and corrupt politicians mislead and mischaracterize events of the day, The Guardian is essential reading in order to get to the truth.

The Guardian is a class act! Clear, unbiased, and truthful. So glad that I subscribed.
Too US centric
by TS Anil on 2019/10/13 23:56
I know I am in the US but nevertheless I find the Guardian here to be too US centric. The reason I am reading the Guardian is to get a different perspective on US news and to get news of other parts of the world but I don’t see that at all.
Great app, great news site!

Guardian always

Accurate, Insightful, Intelligent and Current

I live in California and read the Guardian online every day. Its reporting is accurate, in-depth, and current, and covers international, national, and even local news. I know no other free online newspaper that compares. (Donations and memberships are optional). It provides excellent, reliable coverage of a wide range of topics - politics, science, the environment, sports, the arts, health, and lifestyle, for example. Its current without rushing to judgment. The opinion pieces are always thoughtful and thought-provoking. For clarity in the tumult, I turn to the Guardian

It’s rigorous fact-based journalism, from a progressive perspective. A good sense of humor coexists quite comfortably beside a strong sense of history — all things we need so much right now
dark mode please
by capncuddles420 on 2019/10/05 20:12
please release an update supporting dark mode. also, long pressing on articles should bring up the system share menu, not the guardian-specific account functions, since far more people using the app will use the share menu than will use a separate special guardian account to save or share articles.
Pretty good but used to be better
by jo niles on 2019/10/05 00:23
The content is distinctly left leaning and usually manages to avoid being too strident, though I have to say it is noticeably a little less sober than it once was. Once upon a time, its format and presentation was classier, more elegant, and easier to read than it is now. Indeed, I was sad to see it lose its white and blue format and its distinctive font. Nowadays The Guardian looks and feels like so many other news sites and has lost much of its individuality. Yet despite the old branding being far better, I still persevere with The Guardian because the quality of its reporting does redeem it a little.

I love the perspective that the Guardian provides. I lived in London for a year when I was 19 (50 years ago), and I still appreciate the view on America that I get from another country. Additionally, the reporting is first rate. The Guardian is conducting investigations and collecting statistics that no American newspaper is doing—indeed the FBI says it relies on the Guardian’s statistics to determine the number of gun-related deaths in this country (because the NRA funded congress doesn’t allow that kind of act by US government agencies!). I strongly recommend the Guardian.

Excellent journalism. Comprehensive world news and in depth stories, even series, on subjects illustrative of social or cultural trends - like police brutality in one California county or the Opiod Crisis or children bombed and starving in Yemen. It is a newspaper we need to keep alive. The Guardian, true to its name, keeps an eye on the world and informs us of what her marvelous array of reporters see and learn. Give money, whatever little or big you can. I give $25 a month, even as a social security fixed income 77 year old.

Why The guardian
by w84gdo on 2019/09/08 19:48
As the truthfulness of the American President and his enablers in government are shown to daily traffic in demonstrable lies, and the corporately cowed Mainstream US Media remains, at best: not up to the task of identifying and sharing truth (at worst: complicit in deliberately ignoring, and underreporting to the American people) I am forced (and grateful) to turn to an objective news source with integrity like the Guardian. Thank you.

there are some changes needed to be made, especially in the latest version where the design has changed. I believe it’s really hideous and asymmetrical.

I was in Iran when a Guardian reporter took great risk proving that those slaughtered by the Shah’s immortal guard were mostly woman and children and the elderly massacred at Jaulli Square and not terrorist. She went to the cemetery and examined the bodies. As a consequence the Shah had SAVAK force her to leave Iran.

The best news app 10 stars
by BetaCancri290 on 2018/02/05 17:55
I purchased the monthly subscription and it is well worth it. The news that is covered and the links within articles is simply “Outstanding!” To be able to read current news and link to older stories concerning issues is incredibly fascinating and informative. Each day I find new information and detailed stories I didn’t know existed. I love the stories. Was reading up on Chernobyl and the newly installed enclosure and went through each of the links reading about life within the exclusion zone and the possibility of a solar farm. The content and how easy it is to navigate is simply awesome. One article and its associated links can lead to hours of fascinating information at your fingertips. If I could change one thing it would be to include easier crossword puzzles for novices like me that are working our way up to the more difficult ones.
Great redesign!
by anna-aaaa on 2018/01/20 14:39
I love the new redesign! I had mostly stopped reading after the last redesign a few years ago - the light weight font (especially in white text over magenta half-device-width squares) was really hard to read. I also found it cartoonish, but the main problem was I couldn’t read it. I went from a daily reader, to just checking occasionally for balance against my other news sources. The new design is bold, more serious, and easy to read. Thank you for respecting my larger type preference. I’m back as a reader! I have ignored, with some guilt, your donation requests. Going forward I’m happy to donate, as the format now allows me to enjoy your valuable content.
New logo/icon is disappointing
by The Ludz on 2018/01/17 04:06
The Guardian is great. I read it everyday. I'm dropping a star from my review though because the new icon is so bad. I loved the old logo. The blue circle-masked lowercase "g" was distinct, unique and popped out in a sea of apps on my home screen. The new, black and white, times roman, capital G in a circle feels like any generic news publication. Worse, the app is hard to find now when I scroll through my apps and the widget icon, wow, I can't even tell it's a G. It could be that stupid new uber icon for all I know. Seriously, I understand the world is a depressing, polorizing place these days and the new black/white logo might be meant to represent the times, but please, when Trump leaves office, can we have the old logo back? Finally, Yahoo and the Gap both changed their iconic logos an few years ago. The Gap changed theirs back and still have a business, yahoo not so much. Please don't be the next Yahoo!
Reading the Guardian
by stephenIT on 2018/11/11 21:51
I don’t who will read this. I find the Guardian’s ability to include reporting, analysis, reflection and comparison within the same piece constantly refreshing. In the US the ‘serious’ papers separate reporting and analysis. The front page carries the facts without comment although the subject matter may imply treason and an existential constructional crisis. You have to wade through to the opinion sections on back page (pace NYT) for any analysis. Even then, it is a week later and, in order not to appear biased, they include pieces from either side of the fence, no matter where in the swamp the fence has been erected. Some stories - the role of Russian and other oligarch money floating the US property and fine art markets - hang around in plain sight for decades without being reported. When the festering sore breaks the surface, it is with with instant shock and horror - but that is another subject.
Great newspaper, but the app redesign is a major step back!
by AstroPaul on 2018/05/09 10:34
Latest version took another step backwards! What's with the tiny headlines? Most are one size, but others are small, and virtually unreadable. Make them all the same larger size — or, give readers an option to do that! The recent change in design colors remains hard on the eyes. The red-and-black scheme with BIG, BLACK, bolded headline fonts make the text harder to read and focus on — and more tiring to scroll through. This new version SCREAMS cheap tabloid; a Rupert Murdoch look. Another major step backwards. In contrast, our other iPad still has the previous version on it, with the original blue icon, blue section heads, and regular font headlines. When I used that today, I was struck by how much better it was. Much gentler, easier to read, and more inviting! Please bring back the old color scheme. Or, at least, give users an option of color themes — new, classic, dark, outdoors, etc. You also need to open up commenting on more stories — e.g., even tech stories often omit them, but expert users have much to add. By the way, *stop* adding the “What to Watch” or “Culture” sections to our home pages. We delete it, but after a week or two, they reappear! As to the newspaper itself, keep up the good work! You are an invaluable source of diverse news and progressive perspectives.

My Tiny violin plays for The Guardian
by Tinyviolin on 2019/01/31 17:19
So let me get this straight, you appeal to the populous for funds to save your (so called) unbiased Guardian, while stating, “No one edits your Editor” (no one puts Baby in a corner, right?) despite his/her blatant ignorance of immigration law. You falsely label those who oppose ILLEGAL entry into our sovereign nation “haters of immigration”. Once again, People don’t hate immigrants, they adamantly and vehemently oppose those who disregard our country’s rule of law. That is not hate, that is tough love, sister! Let me tell you this, you are fools. I won’t waste another minute reading your yellow trash. I had not idea until today how far flung the Guardian had become. You made it clear. You will not understand my complaint because you are not equipped to process this view and that is why your readership is sucking wind. You and people like you are stubborn. At the very least, your editor should be Edited, for sure!
I like the journalism just fine, thanks
by 99uniform on 2019/01/06 19:08
2019 jan 6: It has been little over a year since i wrote the older review below and still feel the same. I do have one question, is it more beneficial to anyone by my becoming a subscriber versus keeping my current annual supporter status? What’s different? Older review: After having used the free app for about a year, decided to become an annual supporting member. Revenues generated go back into the journalism and not into any extraneous bells and whistles. (I do not consider providing for a web presence extraneous, these days it becomes a necessity.) I suppose it is my way of supporting the Free Press.
Poor UX, UI and IA
by marc shillum on 2019/01/30 03:01
Guardian team, I love The Guardian, I really love The Guardian. You app is making me hate using The Guardian. I get it, you want users to upgrade to premium, and so you give prominent call-outs to part of the experience non paid users have no access to. But placing the hamburger in the bottom right isn’t a natural pattern. And creating more prominence for premium features than the nav is ridiculous. Please fix the nav, it just creates such a poor experience. Once you’ve fixed the Nav can you take a deep look at IA. The visual information hierarchy places important stories on dark grey backgrounds, and further down the page less important stories on bright white. Red headlines aren’t accessible on grey. Then the interaction paradigm. Left and right are taken by your paid features. But hamburger opens a drawer on the left which is different. Put both paid features on the right and keep the left for Nav. Or find a new way to invoke paid features, don’t duplicate. Lastly can you fix the type ramp?? I counted 10+ weights and sizes. It’s really off-putting to the eye. If you fix all of this I promise I’ll pay, just give me visual calm , be organized, thoughtful and intentional about elements. Let the words and images sing.
The Guardian is real news
by mdffnewsreader on 2019/01/31 13:35
Please support accurate and in-depth reporting. The Guardian reports from an international perspective, covering world events that are often not picked-up by US news sources. Also; a wide variety of news stories, public interest, and social topics are covered. While their free coverage is broad everyone must accept that The Guardian, (And NYT & WAPO amongst others), must still pay the bills in order to function. So; please provide financial support by buying a paid subscription. [I; in no part, have any business dealings with this or other news sources. I do believe in paying my share].
Reliable, Pertinent, Professional and Desperately Needed
by PadraigO on 2018/08/14 14:31
In these “fact free” times where many celebrate, encourage, create and disseminate misinformation, The Guardian is one of the few remaining beacons of evidence and research in this world. I use multiple sources of information to try to confirm news and information for myself. The Guardian is at the top of my list for reliability and pertinence. The Guardian also gets high points for the increasing courage required in these threatening times as one attempts to seek the truth. I appreciate that the Guardian doesn’t try to distract me with trivial entertainment type fluff stories.
No paywall. Honest and diligent leftward leaning news.
by Benlewiscreative on 2018/11/13 03:55
They hold themselves to high journalistic standards one of which prevents them from putting up a paywall. Journalism is essential I wish they would allow you to support them on a sliding scale. My current job situation won’t allow it. Only improvement would be a slide towards the center to fill the void in nuanced and democratically available (free) journalism. They are the last ones standing it seems and they lean so left. Download. Read. Support. Knowledge is our lifeblood and without free journalism we all die of ignorance.
Thank you

Accurate, Insightful, Intelligent and Current
by ijennyr on 2019/10/10 17:44
I live in California and read the Guardian online every day. Its reporting is accurate, in-depth, and current, and covers international, national, and even local news. I know no other free online newspaper that compares. (Donations and memberships are optional). It provides excellent, reliable coverage of a wide range of topics - politics, science, the environment, sports, the arts, health, and lifestyle, for example. Its current without rushing to judgment. The opinion pieces are always thoughtful and thought-provoking. For clarity in the tumult, I turn to the Guardian
Harsh design, solid reporting
by human2nova on 2018/05/05 04:34
I’ve enjoyed The Guardian’s reporting over the last couple of years, but just as I considered paying the monthly subscription to support their work, the redesign occurred. The announcement touting their new tabloid look was off-putting, and the color scheme chosen wasn’t any better. Why add to the stress of today’s news with an equally stressful red/black theme? The updated logo is bland, and lost the distinction of the blue icon, as well. I found myself opening the app and visiting the mobile site less and less, and now I’ll just delete the app from my phone. 5 stars for excellent reporting, 1 star for a harsh, unwelcoming design leaves me with an average of 3 stars.
Good site, great journalism
by Jaxpito on 2018/09/22 12:20
As I newspaper journalist in the US whose newsroom is experiencing one painful cut after another,I know how important for democracy keeping newspapers alive is. I subscribe to the Guardian fir that reason. I wish I could get the newspaper form actually but the site is good. My only complaint is the new version has the table of contents or menu button on the bottom right. It’s tough to get used to after so many years at the top left. Minor issue, really. Good job Guardian. I’ll support you always. Craig in Providence
A better source of news and opinion
by 9robins on 2019/01/06 18:13
I think it’s a nose ahead of two eminent sources of American journalism the Washington Post & The NY Times, for these reasons. (1) It provides a wider global perspective, which American papers tend to overlook. (2) It covers matters British. The UK might consist of ~1.3 small islands, but the United States and the UK remain linked by centuries of history, customs, and values. (3) It gives us Americans a perspective on ourselves and our country that comes from outside our self-absorption. Those of us who try to be well-informed need all three perspectives.
A great read, in more ways than one
by Kaya1332 on 2017/11/11 18:18
The Guardian, as a news source, is a great read. The reporting seems reliable and fresh. Points covered are often not the same old, same old that other sources spew, as if they’re barely rewriting a wire service story. Stories are a solid balance of international and national focus. The layout is visually easy to look at and follow, making it quick and simple to pick what I want to read. The iphone app is also reliable.
Excellent news app, mostly
by The Ear Eclectic on 2017/10/06 21:18
The layout and controls make the app easy to use and easy to read. Content is color coded for ease in identifying the type of article, such as opinion, news or video. However, there is one "feature" where it loses points: tap and hold an item to save it for later. It sounds like a nice way to do it, but I can't tell you how many times a day I accidentally rest a finger too long on an article and it gets saved. I guess I have fat, lazy fingers, at least on a tablet. On the phone it is not as bad.
Review of a reader of the news
by kopoleman on 2018/07/31 14:58
What The Guardian has achieved with this application is to show to what extent freedom of the press can go to in the modern world. To be a newspaper free off subscription and personal targeted advertisements is something that only a handful of newspapers have provided for their readers at the modern age. In all impartiality it must be said that the famously known leftist stance of The Guardian can be felt in their presentation of the news. But that just might be the reason that it has been highly popular at our time.
Amazing!
by FargoFlyer on 2019/10/01 22:35
I love the perspective that the Guardian provides. I lived in London for a year when I was 19 (50 years ago), and I still appreciate the view on America that I get from another country. Additionally, the reporting is first rate. The Guardian is conducting investigations and collecting statistics that no American newspaper is doing—indeed the FBI says it relies on the Guardian’s statistics to determine the number of gun-related deaths in this country (because the NRA funded congress doesn’t allow that kind of act by US government agencies!). I strongly recommend the Guardian.
Pretty good most of the time
by brainzmatter on 2018/10/10 00:16
I could love this paper if they’d dump a few silly and unqualified “opinion” writers. They also run utter rubbish on some topics and then call it a “controversy” when it’s just a ridiculous bit of false equivalency. The science page itself is quite strong, especially Ian Sample. The Podcast has suffered from the loss of Alok Jah and the subsequent addition of some young women with horrible presentation skills. “Talk me through it” is not a substitute for interviewing skills. Thank goodness for Mr Sample. I hang in here for a few of the outstanding columnists; i.e., Jill Abrahamson and Richard Wollffe.
My go-to source for news
by adovelikeboy on 2018/09/22 17:42
The app works well on my iOS 12 phone. It’s stable and I find it easier to navigate than other online editions of print newspapers, e.g. The Washington Post. The journalism is reliably truthful and fact-checked. As well as in depth UK reporting The Guardian covers international news with less of an American slant than many English-language outlets. There are well-reasoned and interesting analysis pieces and longer form essays, often with excellent graphic design, although the more visually impressive pieces show up much better in a computer browser than in the app. Opinion pieces are still squarely in the progressive and leftist range. It’s pro-Labour but never just a partisan mouthpiece for the party. One change: The Guardian is no longer littered with the spelling mistakes and typos for which the print version used to be famous.
A odd fashion substantive newspaper.
by CaroleChicago on 2019/09/19 22:11
Excellent journalism. Comprehensive world news and in depth stories, even series, on subjects illustrative of social or cultural trends - like police brutality in one California county or the Opiod Crisis or children bombed and starving in Yemen. It is a newspaper we need to keep alive. The Guardian, true to its name, keeps an eye on the world and informs us of what her marvelous array of reporters see and learn. Give money, whatever little or big you can. I give $25 a month, even as a social security fixed income 77 year old.
Like Having a Brilliant Friend
by LaRougerie on 2017/12/22 12:36
This is a terrific news source. I read it first now, and it’s like a smart friend who’s always done the research and gives you a news story AND the background AND a fair-minded but able-to-be-outraged perspective. I started reading it because no other news source had so many reporters globally. I stayed because they’re right on top of breaking news AND they have a great arts section. Now I’m starting to find the recipes tempting ....
Disappointing Redesign
by Annoyed user1726 on 2018/01/15 15:18
The new app is visually inferior. Fonts are bolded, making them blocky and heavy, letters atop each other with improper spacing. The color change is also bothersome: where cool blue predominated we now have reds and blacks. The excessive use of red (especially in the Spotlight section) gives an ugly vibe of Alarm. It used to be the headlines and content that gave reason to be concerned: now just scrolling through the app and getting hit with bold, red words causes anxiety. It seems a step backward. There’s also much more dead white space. Would love to see a reversion to cooler colors and crisper, unbolded lettering. The content here will keep me coming back but probably not as frequently or happily as before.
A Great Read!
by dblea... Donna Burns on 2018/09/11 19:55
Not wealthy or well known, I remain better informed than most because I read the Guardian. In my 70’s, disabled and living on Social Security income, I have worked hard in my life and raised three kids to adulthood. I don’t want to lose awareness of what is happening in my country or on this beautiful Earth. I have little to spend on obtaining news but my daughter with whom I live assists me in handling my subscription. I’m grateful for both my daughter and The Guardian. Donna Burns
Great redesign
by Mark in Brooklyn on 2018/01/15 19:16
This is a great app, as long as you have connectivity. I really wish it would allow for better offline reading without having to find the stories, save them, and then remove them from save later on. The daily edition downloads the entire newspaper but that’s a separate subscription. Still, awesome newspaper that’s keeping up with the times without compromising journalistic quality or integrity.
The Guardian is the best
by Milesinla on 2018/10/08 23:08
The best. Did I say the best. Ten years ago, when I lived in LA, I would buy the Guardian Weekly, custom printed and bound by staples. It got me up early lest it be sold out. The Guardian gives me a world view of the world. I miss the paper version but when I go to England maybe I’ll get my fix. When I’m London I lose out to the seven newspapers I try and read daily. The internet makes the world a smaller place the Guardian is the go to single source for me.
A bit bogged down in US politics and a bit too far left
by folk-fan on 2018/08/30 02:02
As an American, I like offshore perspective. At their best, publications based outside the US have fresh insights and a detachment from the muck and mire of the desperate attempts of most US media outlets to sway, solidify, and sell political perspective. The Guardian gets just a little too close to the US, has a few too many US readers, a few too many left-leaning editorialists based in its US office, and it is starting to show. I like journalism that is aimed at readers who don't quite understand the US, and who certainly can't participate in US politics.
Always great except when it prewrites my recommendation for me
by RadioHead222 on 2018/10/15 20:29
The Guardian is a refreshing daily read, alongside my reading of the New York Times. It has less coverage but more attitude. It also is a little more international. I have to say that I resent the fact that the Guardian marketing department sent me a pre-written recommendation for the Guardian when I offered to recommend it on the App Store. Too bad. This does paper deserves better.
Daily must read
by DonnaU504 on 2017/12/19 19:26
The Guardian is great- I visit several times a day, looking for new content. Perhaps there are other providers of important information that the Guardian covers, but I've yet to find them. I also like coverage from around the world which is woefully lacking from most US providers. The app is simple to use and laid out consistently, day to day. No downside to downloading.
Real Investigative Reporting
by J Tuttle on 2018/10/09 00:26
Ever notice that the Guardian is instrumental in the greatest exposes of our time? Think about it; Snowden released his story thru them, the Panama Papers on foreign hidden assets revealed by them, the Steele dossier etc etc. The Guardian actually reports the stories that other news organizations spend time speculating on. Their news organization doesn’t bog down on trivia, minutia & hyperbole but digs up the info, raw & un editorialized. That is the opposite of ‘fake’!
Always good to get a different perspective.
by SusanOtter on 2018/10/08 04:09
I am enjoying this app a great deal. I like seeing how someone from another country (UK) sees my country (US). There is a US version of the paper. I especially appreciate that The Guardian is keeping track of the number of US citizens killed by police. This information is not easily found in the US. Although access is free for this app, I donate whenever possible.
Love the update
by Reganwarren on 2018/01/16 07:30
Thanks for giving the app such a huge overhaul! Absolutely loving the fluidity of the app and the new aesthetic, minus the prominent red colors. I was definitely much more of a fan of the blue colors, as it comes off more trustworthy and benevolent. That might sound crazy but I think that’s definitely backed up by some psychology. Something to consider, but doesn’t take away from my review at all.
Increased pop ups
by h-232 on 2018/12/06 21:46
Great news, good app, well organized. But... since the last update, the exact same “Germany Works” advertisement continually pops up, sometimes 2-3 times per story read and nearly always without my touching the ad (accidentally); this ad even interrupts my reading of the ‘subscribe to the Guardian Premium’ app page. This bug is unfortunate because it makes using the free version of this news app nearly impossible and I dread switching news reports just to be free from this one, single, pestilent ad. It is insane and thoughtless.
Top Notch
by Ejaazi on 2018/02/08 21:12
It's the best news app I've tried so far outside of apps that pull from many sources. However, I'm not a fan of the new logo and color scheme. Blue and white was so much better. Update 2/8/18 Still the best, but now the tab button to get to the menu and settings does not stay at the top but scrolls along the side as you scroll and sits on top of articles partially blocking your view.
Start my morning with the Guardian
by Reads Science on 2018/08/01 15:38
The Guardian provides me with a non-American perspective on national and international news. That’s useful, because you never really see yourself as others see you. I often read stories that are not covered by US media. And I contribute, because I don’t want to lose the view from our most faithful ally.
Good app, good writing, annoying features
by Dani_EG on 2017/10/21 19:05
Make no mistake, I donated to The Guardian this year. Their reporting is top notch, and they don't put it behind a paywall. I respect that. However, if your app automatically opens stories I tried to open in Safari without asking me, it'll be deleted, without hesitation. I like reading in the app, but when I'm organizing sources from multiple sites to read up or write about a story, I can't waste time switching between apps for particular stories. So, while The Guardian is great, this app is not.
Stop Pestering Your Paying Customers
by PPrachun on 2018/11/19 12:28
Every single day now I get a pop-up message asking me if 'I'm enjoying the Guardian?' Just as bad as the non-paying version with its ads. Even after I’ve registered my initial 4 star rating, I still receive these daily torments. On today’s ‘review’, you get one star. Bye bye Guardian. I’ve had it with your millennial mindset needing constant approval and input with which to stroke your leftist ego.
Journalism: support it or allow powerful liars to carry on unexposed.
by carole raphaelle davis on 2018/12/28 02:50
We need journalism now more than ever. The Guardian provides us with the truth. In depth investigations, exposés, unvarnished facts, the science..give your support or live in the dark of ignorance. Our planet depends on journalism. The guardian has proven over the years that they can’t be bought. Give truth a hand. It’s cheap enough; subscribe today.
Real News to counter Real Fakes
by Periscope on 2019/01/09 03:30
Stereo vision requires two clear eyes to see the real world to understand perspective. Cover one eye and the world is flat. You no longer can see clearly how things relate to each other. The Guardian can be counted on for the necessary perspective to see and understand relationships & details to make better decisions. Read & see!
Fabulous App
by Angie Rocks on 2018/09/04 17:07
Absolutely brilliant and utterly fantastic. Super easy to use, the ability to follow specific journalists and even certain topics and then choosing whether or not to be ‘notified’ when said person/topic is published... quite possibly my favourite feature of this app! Everything, everyday, multiple times a day. Love this app!
Upgrade to ugliness
by ukiruku on 2018/03/08 19:25
I don’t usually take the time to review apps. As a devoted Guardian subscriber, though, have to say I hate the new app. Gone are the easy-on-the-eye blue and plum, the softer lines. Bring on fascistic, geometric black and red — along with white that makes the Nazi colors. In any case it’s all much harder on the eye, more off-putting to this graphic designer. I used to love clicking on that blue and white icon — by contrast the new app is like graphic barbed wire on the eye. Score one for a poor design choice. Like most upgrades these days, it’s a downgrade.
typos in almost every story
by gil54667 on 2018/11/10 14:32
I can't understand how any writer, let alone any editor, would post, let alone leave posted, any story with a typo. Occasionally typos are so egregious that a sentence will have the opposite meaning intended. It is so distracting that I find myself re-reading sentences and paragraphs to decypher the actual meaning. My own writing is sloppier than it used to be in this post-spelling and grammar era, which is why it is even more important for The Guardian to maintain high standards
Fantastic app
by Midwest Spirit on 2018/09/09 09:43
I have enjoyed this app and The Guardian for a long time. The app is stable and the information is fantastic. The information is put together well, and I turn to this news at least twice a day to get facts and unbiased opinions and news. I highly recommend it along with a subscription to The Guardian.
FANTASTIC
by farmerlawyer on 2018/12/09 21:28
The Guardian is the first place I go to find unbiased and oligarch-free news that is without influence from corporate special interests. I also read (and have read) the WaPo for over 15 years and recently (6mo) ago added TG to my reading list. Stories are concise, editing is top notch, and background is thorough. It’s now the first publication I read daily.
Guardian’s journalism is a standard in itself
by Chef Zubair on 2018/11/29 17:24
I have been reading The Guardian for many years. The newspaper keeps amazing me with their journalism - their language, their unflinching adherence to neutrality and their constant inquest to bring you verified information from across the globe, especially Europe and America. I am always a huge fan of their work.
Its awesome
by amin201875 on 2019/07/25 18:04
there are some changes needed to be made, especially in the latest version where the design has changed. I believe it’s really hideous and asymmetrical. Moreover, sometimes when reading an article the app crashes out or lags a lot to the point that I have to erase it from ram and launch it again. Otherwise It’s a great app with a better content.
