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

Too invasive. Demands too much of my personal information.

Good functionality; loading issue atm When the app loads stories, it's great. Good navigation, useful personalization, etc. However, on my LG G2, it almost never loads -- the circle spins endlessly in the middle of the screen, no matter what network I'm on, wifi or data. 5 stars if it would only work on my phone.

Please bring the old app back! This new version is harder to read, more difficult to search, and crashes all the time on my Samsung Note 1. Stuffed with pictures when what we want are articles. The swipe to right to find related articles is gone, and the the selection of sections to set up on one's home page are greatly reduced. The swipe to left to read the reader comments is gone. The Guardian had a great app before, but this is a buggy, inefficient, frustration of an app.

Disappointing update 'Loading...' - when will this issue be fixed? Everytime I click on the app it sticks at this loading page. Really don't like new update, now have to scroll scroll scroll and it's harder to find sections you want to put on your homepage. It's less customisable than before. I was annoyed with the way the guardian hobbled the Guardian Anywhere app (which was the best) but was starting to appreciate the official app until this. I'd be happy to pay for the app but not this.
