Really don’t understand where The Guardian is going with this “Editions” thing. What’s wrong with a daily news app with the content of the print version, which is what I (and everyone else who’s been signed up for any more than a week) wanted? I know it sounds wrong to complain about getting something extra, but If the direction is towards a magazine with less daily news and analysis, which is what I’m suspecting, it’ll be the final nail in the Guardian’s coffin for me.

And another thing, every time I click on a link in the daily edition, I get asked if I’ll pay more. If the app is clever enough to know I’m a subscriber when I read it, why isn’t it clever enough to know I’m clicking through from an app that makes me a subscriber? Can’t you fix this?

2/5 to 5/5? How?

Not sure how the ratings algorithm works on the App Store? I posted a 1* review only a few weeks ago when the average rating was 2/5. Now it’s 5/5; how did that happen? Before the update to this app in 2019 The Guardian Daily was 6/5, ie brilliant. The update was a solid 0/5 and it has spent the last year getting to 2/5 on the back of many 1* reviewers who helped them sort the mess out. I even had a phone call from the person in charge of the mess. Ok, it’s probably a 2/5 now, but 5/5? no way. Does anyone know how the algorithm works? Look back at all the 1* reviews in the last year and ask yourself if you are being told the truth.

Developer Response ,


Many thanks for your feedback and we are sorry you are disappointed with the changes we’ve made to the Daily app.

You refer to the offline reading experience in your feedback and we wanted to highlight that version 5.2.3 of the app has just been released which you can receive through updating the app through the AppStore.

This release contains the following improvements:

• Offline reading - we hope this version will significantly improve the offline reading experience, including ensuring images for downloaded editions are visible offline.

• Scheduled download - this version should solve many issues that prevented some users from having the latest edition download automatically.

Hopefully, this will address some of the concerns you raise.

Please feel free to continue sharing feedback at

Many thanks

A vast improvement on previous versions...

.... but still a little basic and lacking in features compared to its free sibling app.

My priorities for improvements would be 1) dark mode for reading at night, 2) a way of saving articles to come back to later (even if you have to switch to the main Guardian app to read them again) and 3) some kind of indicator to show how far through the article you've got - there's something a bit disorientating about having no idea whether you're halfway through a short article or at the beginning of a really long one!
