Browse through the sections and download all the content you want

The Guardian is an Android app that enables users to read all the information from directly in their devices. Besides reading, the news you can also watch videos, listen to podcasts and browse through the picture galleries.

You can navigate through the sections, topics and contributors, choosing a maximum of eight to appear on your the main screen (e.g Top Stories, Multimedia, Sport, Culture, etc). It's also possible to download the content and add some news to your favorite lists in order to be able to read them while you're offline.

Guardian News & Media Ltd is the developer of this first app for accessing to all the info from The Guardian. The app is easy to use, the usability design is pretty good and it works smoothly. It's a great app for fans of the website and the newspaper, because now they can read it quicker directly from their phones.

    When you try and press the UP VOTE arrow button on a REPLY to a Comment, it fails. It works on the comment, though.

    Reading offline is a lottery, reading online isn't reliable! Shouldn't be difficult to improve (especially considering it used to be fine) so I'm persevering because the content is, as always, superb.

    The app is ok, easy enough to use, looks ok, nothing special but I had to uninstall it after reding some of the drivel put out by Jamie Jackson, can't support any company that gives this odious click bait cockroach a living.
