Shame, used to love this Bugs, freezes, constantly verifies me. Sends me through to google double click. Incredibly power-hungry! Unreadable as it is, I'm off to the Guardian.

Regularly just stops and times out Presumably it's downloading in the background but who knows? Shouldn't do it in any case. Very irritating.

No caching Serious problem with this app: you can download a whole day's edition... yet it forgets the lot as soon as you are offline. Pointless on the tube or planes.

Very buggy Crashes almost every use. Articles often fail to load. Text sometimes disappears.

Great content. Shockingly poor app. Spend more time with app frozen and restarting than reading content. Uninstalled.
