User reviews of The Guardian
Great app, but doesn't automatically clear old cache. I just noticed it was using 600MB of space. o_O

My favourite news app. Really nice to have this on my phone. Shame the font in the comments is so small as to be almost unreadable. Apart from that, I have no complaints at all.

Looked promising for a moment. Condensed format is a big improvement, however the old app was more concise and better for me. It is very difficult to download all of the sections and contributors unlike the old app which was a breeze for viewing off line later. Please make this as good as the old app. I'm reverting to the old app again.

Off line reading doesn't work Offline content download is scheduled. But when opening the app offline, it says there's no content to display. Ridiculous.
