Awful new version What have they done. Keeps crashing does not load property. Even when cached still very slow and not always loadung arrives.I have so many problems. The old version much better. Stick to the Guardian app much much better and it works.

Big mess Still not over the loss of its predecessor. Navigation is awful, it freezes, links don't work, the limited number of articles now is made worse by repeating them. Easier to read from the website.

Always crashing. Quite a nice interface , except for the banner adds (which I'd happily pay to be without). The biggest problem is the way it crashes all the time! I use this app every single day and I'd say it crashes at least once every single day.

Rubbish Somehow constantly freezing and crashing (despite only having to display text and images) along with almost constant notifications.
