    Useless app. Couldn't input a single word.

    Was great when it was free but now you have to pay...lame. Should either be paid or free - don't lure me in with it being free for ages then take it away from me. Disappointed.

    Why does the Guardian crossword need to know who I'm calling and who's calling me? A good app but took 2 stars off for invasion of privacy.

    Gutted. I love Guardian crosswords, but this is saying 'sorry there was a connection error' when there clearly isn't. Would be furious if I'd paid for subscription.

    Does what it claims, gives you daily apps from the guardian which keep me occupied. Good for a free app
