    Good, please update

    It 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. :)

    Nice 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.

    Hasn'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!
