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 guardian.co.uk 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.

    Why must I automatically be given only the US version, simply bc I am in the US? Is there no option to change that? The entire reason I downloaded this app is to read the UK version!

    When reading comments on CIF the app seems to jump randomly to new locations in the list. Impossible to read long threads without losing ones place. Seems to be a recent problem which needs fixing urgently.

    If you like an reasonably educating newspaper this is a fair brand to follow. The app can play - up occasionally, and if your on a pc you can view a far wider breath of news topics. This smartphone app is worth viewing for free and interesting news collection.
