    When you're looking for introspective news about a plethora of current topics, where else would you look, but to The Guardian?
  • Top Notch

    By Ejaazi
    It's the best news app I've tried so far outside of apps that pull from many sources. However, I'm not a fan of the new logo and color scheme. Blue and white was so much better.
  • Well done.

    By SBG779
    Honestly, well done developer team/UXUI team. It's an incredibly fluid app, and stable. Thank you!
  • New logo/icon is disappointing

    By The Ludz
    The Guardian is great. I read it everyday. I'm dropping a star from my review though because the new icon is so bad. I loved the old logo. The blue circle-masked lowercase "g" was distinct, unique and popped out in a sea of apps on my home screen. The new, black and white, times roman, capital G in a circle feels like any generic news publication. Worse, the app is hard to find now when I scroll through my apps and the widget icon, wow, I can't even tell it's a G. It could be that stupid new uber icon for all I know. Seriously, I understand the world is a depressing, polorizing place these days and the new black/white logo might be meant to represent the times, but please, when Trump leaves office, can we have the old logo back? Finally, Yahoo and the Gap both changed their iconic logos an few years ago. The Gap changed theirs back and still have a business, yahoo not so much. Please don't be the next Yahoo!
  • Terrible update

    By Mom Emy
    I was looking for news and all I found were articles like the Enquirer would run. Deleting app.
  • Love the update

    By Reganwarren
    Thanks for giving the app such a huge overhaul! Absolutely loving the fluidity of the app and the new aesthetic, minus the prominent red colors. I was definitely much more of a fan of the blue colors, as it comes off more trustworthy and benevolent. That might sound crazy but I think that’s definitely backed up by some psychology. Something to consider, but doesn’t take away from my review at all.
  • Great redesign

    By Mark in Brooklyn
    This is a great app, as long as you have connectivity. I really wish it would allow for better offline reading without having to find the stories, save them, and then remove them from save later on. The daily edition downloads the entire newspaper but that’s a separate subscription. Still, awesome newspaper that’s keeping up with the times without compromising journalistic quality or integrity.
  • Something borrowed, something blue

    By chrislowder
    The new design is growing on me, and I think I’ll embrace it eventually. However, the app itself is still a mess, with Android design elements, hamburger menus, and sluggish performance. I know it’s a new tech, but I’d love to be able to preview stories with a force touch. I’ll still resubscribe, but I wish they’d follow iOS design guidelines and make an app that I’d *love* to use.
  • Disappointing Redesign

    By Annoyed user1726
    The new app is visually inferior. Fonts are bolded, making them blocky and heavy, letters atop each other with improper spacing. The color change is also bothersome: where cool blue predominated we now have reds and blacks. The excessive use of red (especially in the Spotlight section) gives an ugly vibe of Alarm. It used to be the headlines and content that gave reason to be concerned: now just scrolling through the app and getting hit with bold, red words causes anxiety. It seems a step backward. There’s also much more dead white space. Would love to see a reversion to cooler colors and crisper, unbolded lettering. The content here will keep me coming back but probably not as frequently or happily as before.
