    The layout and construct of this app is fairly good. The content is very limited when compared to the full site. Best thing about the guardian is their writing on art, architecture and music. There is some of this featured on the app but the majority is just vitriolic ranting against posh people. I grew up below the poverty line but even I find this tedious and obnoxious to the point of nearly deleting it from my phone. The lack of alternatives is probably the only reason I haven't deleted it yet.

    Why can't I use this app to log in to my Guardian ePaper subscription, so as to see all content? This was a fair AP but hadn't been refreshed in two years or more. What is the issue? Apple offering you too much to promote their own apps?

    Not a bad app, but now in need of updating (4 years, no update). Why not make a universal guardian app for upcoming windows 10?

    So, so. Sometimes buggy and slow, very superficial coverage. Why can't I extend my paid subscription for the digital edition (in PDF, difficult/impossible to use and navigate on a phone) to a full-featured Windows Phone app? Oh, I forgot, the Guardian has this love affair with Apple and snotty attitude to everyone who uses anything else.
