9/25/2014Not bad but the time the since last update is ridiculous. The app keeps coming back to the top of the article after locking the screen or switching to another app and back. And there's an unnecessary blank space on the top that's been there since I remember, it's a waste of screen space. First I wanted to write that for me it seems the app hasn't been updated for the last two years. Then I saw it wasn't just a feeling...
9/8/2014Good, please update
9/5/2014It does the job (well, the vast majority of the time), but this app seriously needs updating. No live tile, no integration with The Guardian online account and commenting areas, no Pocket or other 'read it later' service. Videos in articles don't/won't load, live-reporting coverage doesn't automatically update or function. I'm beta-testing The Guardian's new full website which is gorgeous and works fantastically well. They need to port this over to their app and give us all the functionality we need from it. :)
5/21/2014Stopped working last week...
4/21/2014Last update: 2011 Come on..
3/29/2014Also need a way to share on Facebook.
12/19/2013Nice app and I like the way it caches the main articles so you can read when offline. Only annoyance is the big blank space at the top of the screen.
