The Guardian’s Android app is a great choice for news buffs

by Irfan Choudhury

It was a long time coming, but finally popular UK-based newspaper, The Guardian, has released a dedicated Android app. People from all around the world enjoy The Guardian for current news, analysis and columns. Smartphone users may have missed The Guardian’s presence at their fingertips, but the wait is over now.

The developers (an in-house team at The Guardian) did a very good job. The app is user-friendly, has a smooth interface, is customizable and is quite easy to use. It allows readers to smoothly browse and read their preferred sections. The reader, according to their wishes, can navigate the app by section, subject or contributor. There are separate picture galleries within the app too. People who love to receive news along with pictures will surely enjoy this option.

This app allows readers to go through current news, breaking stories, sports, technology, culture, entertainment, columns, and reviews on-the-go. Users can arrange the look and feel of the home screen depending on what they prefer. There is also a video section and a podcast, so the option of watching and listening to the news instead are also available. The app allows readers to download their favourite stories with just the touch of a button for offline reading. However, it does not have any options for increasing or decreasing the font size, and there are no home screen widgets yet.

The app is rather impressive. People who want to always be updated with what’s happening around the world should download this app to their Android smartphones as soon as they can.
