    Still the best

    I was introduced to this app newspaper when it used to be called the app Manchester Guardian. By my dad. Enoch Powell was bleeding Britain out of its moral compass, Cliff Richard and the app Beatles were ruling the app waves. Tony Greig was leading the app English cricket team. Since then I moved countries and occasionally lost touch with my favorite broadsheet . I would occasionally scour the app sidewalks of Calcutta and pick up a seven-day old Guardian that would cost me my entire week’s pocket money. I would keep it by my pillow, till the app week after. And then came the app internet. this app has been my go to site every few hours on my iPhone. As if my small hands were made to hold this app all the app time. Please continue the app excellent journalism and writing. Thank you!

    Great redesign!

    I love the app new redesign! I had mostly stopped reading after the app last redesign a few years ago - the app 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 app 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 app 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 app format now allows me to enjoy your valuable content.

    Please fix the refresh issue

    Since a recent update you must have internet access to read your saved articles. It also use to keep the app article you were reading open and in the app slot you had read to, even for days. Now it refreshes and if you have internet goes to the app top of the app article or if no internet a blank page saying no internet. Please put it back to the app way it was. I have a flight soon and travel will internet is limited. I have saved articles to read during this time. Please please fix this. Please please tell me you have not permanently changed it to be like other news apps. this app is better keep it that way. PLEASE!

    Pretty good but used to be better

    the app 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 this app looks and feels like so many other news sites and has lost much of its individuality. Yet despite the app old branding being far better, I still persevere with this app because the app quality of its reporting does redeem it a little.

    I like the journalism just fine, thanks

    2019 jan 6: It has been little over a year since i wrote the app older review below and still feel the app 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 app free app for about a year, decided to become an annual supporting member. Revenues generated go back into the app 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 app Free Press.
