A great app - and it’s all free!

Readers of The Metro will love this app. It’s packed full with interesting content across a range of topics and the articles are well written. I particularly like the puzzles - they’re great for working out your grey matter! My only gripe - and the reason for my only awarding the app four stars - is that the business section is rubbish.

Better than live news apps

I have downloaded quite a few news apps over lockdown to try and track what is happening in the world during the crisis. Metro has by far been the most enjoyable & insightful. Unlike certain live news apps (Mail Online / the Sun) which bombard you with news updates every five minutes Metro gives you two daily papers to download which offer the day's news, politics, covid updates & sports news. I would highly recommend it to readers who enjoy a light easy read. The articles are concise, well written, humerous & factual. No annoying ads, glitches or notifications - Thank you metro 🙏🏼

Good escape from lockdown bubble / great range of puzzles

I've spent half my lockdown on the Metro app. My favourite section of the app is the range of puzzles on offer. I spend every Sunday morning getting my way through a range of jigsaws & crosswords. My husband and I have become very competitive! I also occasionally read the recommended TV section which has been really helpful. It tells you what time a TV series will air & it also gives a review. I am very happy with the app and would recommend it especially to anyone who enjoys puzzles.
