Less Biased on American Politics  Ryguym166  5 star

As an American, I find the Guardian to be less biased than an American based news source on American politics. They don't have clickbait titles like CNN, just straight news. Their Opinion articles are quite good as well.


Love it  Hsw804  5 star

Not just great news, open to the public, but an easy to use and reliable app to view it. Don't forget to donate to keep their investigative journalism free to read!

Amazing amount of information for a very small expense.

M Sheel

Great user experience and great content  M Sheel  5 star

The app is well organized. The home section provides a good overview of the newest news and slide the page to the right to get a menu for more specific content areas (US, Europe, Sports, etc). Content loads really quickly when you open the app. Content PoV is left of center but for critical issues they do provide articles that give insight to the right wing view.

Excellent perspective  Limey in CA  5 star

As an ex-pat Englishman I always read the print version and now I'm happy to have this electronic version easy to hand. They proffer a great insight to international affairs as well as first class coverage of the U.K. news. Perfectly crafted app. Easy to use and navigate.
