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.
10/26/2013Hasn't been updated since 2011. Doesn't deserve a download (I did and regretted it). Unfortunately their new mobile site doesn't work well with WP8 either!
10/2/2013[Lumia 925, T-Mobile, USA] Really like this app. Can use an update... Been forever. Could be slightly more stable and smoother.
9/5/2013Not a bad design just needs a update
8/6/2013Crashes every time without fail! The mobile web version is far better than this app.
7/17/2013Surprisingly there's no way to share an article on Facebook, only mail. There's thick white emptiness at the top of each article, too much wasted space for a mobile screen. But its ok for version one.
7/16/2013Not enough stories available to read via the app
7/12/2013I was so glad to see a 'The Guardian' app for my HTC 8x, but it hasn't been updated since 2011. It works pretty good for being so outdated, and lets you do what you'd expect (browse, read, and share the latest news for The Guardian). But it urgently needs to be updated. It could use a rewrite for Windows Phone 8, 720p screen support, and stability and performance improvements. It also makes my phone run rather warm... I'm hoping that they don't abandon Windows Phone and show us some support soon!
