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

Repetitive So much scrolling and articles repeated in the same page.

Better Fixed the bug where a new comment would automatically reload the page at the top. Now you can reload manually.

Pretty but useless Old app used to be amazing. Fast loading, fast navigation and very user friendly. Guardian still has some of the best content of any online news source but this new app makes it hard to access such content. Fitting example: every time for whatever reason I switch to another app mid-article and then I go back on it, it takes me back to the home page and I have to go and look for the article I was reading again. This used to be a no-brainer for the old app. Fix graphics as well as it takes ages to load. X

Update problem. The update/refresh problem seems to be fixed now. Fair play to the Guardian app developers for the quick fix. The app is now restored to 5* !

Sack your UX expert Below was first thoughts, but now downgraded to 1 star as I've simply stopped using what was my favourite snd what I thought was the perfect app. Probably still a good app. Hence 3 stars. But older version was a 5. Galaxy S3 experience much prettier, but less usable. Now have to scroll double and double column + primary stories spanning both confuses my eyes and makes me leave the app while the old one drew me in.
