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

Messy clutter You have ruined it, it was perfect before when it was a clear easy to read expandable list, now it's an awful mess just like the website

Still connection problems! What are you folk doing. And just wait till you do a restore on your tablet. It's hopeless as is the customer service. No one has the sort of time to waste these guys ask for

Unusable After Update I'm a big fan of the Guardian and clearly a lot of work has gone into the redesign but it is terrible. Luckily I read all the negative reviews on here and installed the update on my girlfriends phone. It's now impossible from what I can see to add sections and writers to favourites, instead everything has to be added to the home screen. You're also now stuck with the top content as the first section on your homepage and cannot be removed. Things are generally a lot more difficult to find. Please revert it!

Post-updatal depression! Find myself using the app much much less after the update. Fair enough the old version needed updating but the new version is just far too complicated. I'm 20, imagine how your more mature readers will fare!
