***** A Super App for a Super Paper
by Antonios T.
I always pick-up the Metro when I see it at the station but with this App I can now read it in the morning before leaving home. This very moment I am writing this review after I’ve read the paper in Greece!

***** Marvellous App
by Tontojo
What a really good newspaper app. I have read Metro as a paper on and off when I can get it since its inception and always thought a great paper. To be able to download it each day is a real treat. Keep up the good work.

***** Great App
by Aydarose
Great way of starting the day with upto date news on your iPad without going out into the elements to buy a newspaper

Impressive, slick, informative and free.

Somehow the ads are not intrusive as they are not annoying popups but full page static ads as in a conventional newspaper. Just slide to the next page if not interested. The news items are somewhat limited in scope, but an ideal summary of what's happening. The vast puzzle section is excellent and very cleverly designed for iPad use. Possibly the best free app I have downloaded.

I am now retired and when at work used to avidly read the Metro paper but although I had the App on my iPhone I didn't bother much with it as the format was too small within the limits of the device.
Now not working and at home (!) I have re-installed the app for use on my iPad Pro.
The content is superb and akin to the paper version’s “quick read” format and with quality content.
I must compliment you on the excellent puzzle content with gold standard functionality on the iPad - I could never find time to work now!

Much improved on a few years ago!

Keeps resizing crosswords!

News always good. Loving the puzzles within this app except the top lines of the crossword puzzles on my iPhone 6 keep becoming inaccessible. I can see them by pulling the screen down but it springs back and I can’t fill them in. I’ve fixed this a couple of times by deleting the app and reinstalling, but why why why does this happen now? We don’t all have big screen iPhones!!!! Please fix this - it would be 5 stars if not for this!
