Rubbish for an international newspaper The app is utter rubbish considering the size and quality of the paper. Was it done on the cheap down some London backstreet? Always crashing. Always downloads something. Don't bother, check the Guardian for a quality app.

Could try harder If the 'free edition' app gave me any confidence then I might consider a subscription - it doesn't. Currently stuck with 2 day old content and front page

Revising to 2 stars after latest update. After a few days of confusion and video-only news, I'm able to read the news again. Until the next update. Wish they'd get this app sorted so each new update doesn't cause me to uninstall. Edit: As of 20 March 2015 still crashes and have to reinstall after every update. Have quit using this as my daily news app.

Was the chief dev Mr. Freeze? This app is abysmal. Thunderously poor. Constantly freezes / crashes. Very difficult to finish a story and I've often forgotten how it actually began by the time responsiveness is restored. Ugh.
