Premium does not cover multiple platforms, premium is not top tier. The Guardian has so many different ways to ask for money that it detracts from the content that I was seeking. Not renewing because I would have to purchase 2 premium subscriptions to cover all of my devices, waste of money.
When I saw the movie of a true story about Edward Snowden , who was employed by FBI went to THE Guardian , only trusting them with a story . Been hooked ever since .
Attractively designed with lots of photos. A compelling way to read the news that compares favorably with the very good NYT app. The comments on political articles are less thoughtful than those in The Times, but sometimes raw rage and non-prissy language seem more appropriate. Also, The Times doesn’t dare to publish cartoons. The Guardian’s cartoons are brilliant and indispensable (though some of them don’t blow up properly for small-screen reading). The Country Diary column, which has run for over one hundred years, sets the news in a wider arc of nature and humanity. The Guardian takes you places no other newspaper can reach, and this app is a pretty nimble vehicle for that journey.
I have to say first, that I am not a political individual of unrest. The news on television only upsets me, and clouds my judgment, and makes me despondent. There is too much of nothing going on in most news available to us. I think the best thing about the guardian, is that it is not over washed with pictures and nonsense, and the pictures that are posted tell the story and leave it at that. The writers are careful to be simple yet intelligent, the app is easy to navigate, and I get a sense of overall honesty. I know that honesty can be misconstrued, and that is to be expected, but at least the guardian is working towards something better. Even amongst all of the Trump propaganda, they say it how it is, and let us know what other people are thinking about the situation. Never exasperating what they want to say, it is more what the people say that is captured and written amongst its paragraphs. I am very concerned with what’s going on in our country and in the world, and the politics of it all, but I have been away from it for a long time because I just find it hard to believe on corporate platforms such as Fox News etc. The guardian has inspired me to keep up on current events, and the fact that I can turn on my phone, which I rarely use for anything but email, contact, and paying an occasional bill. I do not use it for social media to which I have been off for over a year. It is very calming to be able to wake up in the morning and read the guardian, and get on with my day, and reflect, and not be upset because there are 10 different opinions coming at me. The complexity of simplicity is something to be appreciated. The guardian has gone above and beyond, and I support them 100%. I think it would be quite a flux for readers, and genuine minds that want to know what is going on in the world to invest in this fine fine new platform.
The Guardian promoted and continues to promote the Russiagate conspiracy theory, enabling the Democratic Party in the US to blame others for their loss to Trump in 2016 instead of excepting their own abandonment of the urgent needs working class, who they ostensibly champion.
On par with NYT and WaPo. Love it’s substance combined with brevity.
Truth is elusive because even facts are viewed through the perspective of human eyes. The biases of personal loss or gain, of ingrained habits of thought and of ideals and wishes make reporting truth even more challenging. The Guardian can be trusted to try to overcome these challenges even as it attempts special care to present the viewpoint of the poor, of those without privilege, of the oppressed and of the socially invisible. I applaud their organising structure that makes this possible. I am always grateful to read The Guardian.
Reliable accurate and interesting stories
I have been reading The Guardian every morning for a few years, and gradually it has become my favorite and most trusted newspaper. The iPad app works great. I enjoy looking at the photos after reading the news. I have chosen to pay for a subscription, so I don’t have to scroll through very many adds at all.
My husband and I live in Los Angeles having moved here From The UK in 2018. We have a subscription To the Guardian and it’s worth every penny! I think I check the Guardian app at least 6-7 times a day to check on UK and Us updates. It is a welcome lifeline to the home of our family and friends from Whom We are physically cut off from During Covid. As well as representing excellent journalism consistently. Well done! Keep doing what you do so well.
