The Guardian app goes universal across Windows 10 desktop and mobile

It looks like we can count another app among the universal stable, this time with The Guardian. The companion app to the popular news outlet has gone universal, consolidating the experience across Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, along with improved search.

For those interested, here's what you can look forward to with The Guardian app:

  • Stay up to date with live news and sport
  • Enjoy the full range of Guardian content, beautifully designed for Windows 10 phones, tablets, and desktops
  • Read offline, wherever you are
  • Browse award-winning audio, video and interactive content, as well as full-screen galleries - with stunning high-resolution images
  • Search by keyword, topic, series, section, or contributor

Overall, the app does look pretty slick as well, putting the content front-and-center with a pleasant design. If you're interested in checking out The Guardian, be sure to hit up the link to the Windows Store below to grab the app.

  • About time! But very good...
  • More apps going universal, hehehehe dev will build for mobile unless they dont want to build for windows and it looks pretty much like they can't ignore windows as a platform, fingers crossed
  • Hell yeah!!! :D
  • People in their App Reviews in the Store are saying their old, non-Universal app wasn't updated since 2011. I hope they don't abandon this one after a bit.
  • Please daily mail, consecrate us too
  • Good point. How otherwise will we know what causes and/or cures cancer?
  • Lord, no! I had to switch Cortana off as she was spamming me with the Daily Fail.
  • Waiting for my 950xl to experience windows 10 mobile.
  • Sweet!
  • Is there a way to search for only Universal 10 apps in the stores?
  • Beta and a bit slow to refresh but very very promising. Lovely design.
  • The app is absolutely gorgeous
  • Coool app. Wana know how many universal apps are.. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Sweet. I've never found a decent Guardian app for Windows Phone or Windows 8.
  • What about Xbox One apps for universal apps on NXOE? Looking forward to having those on XBox
  • Cool. Do these content publishers know how great is Microsoft Edge(IE) live tile optimisation for user engagement to their content? Make your web versions interoperable to Microsoft's Edge too. :)
  • Oh goody!! One of my favourite apps, I do love myself a bit of grauniad I do.
  • Random point but does anyone know if Lumia 930 will have the continuum feature like the 950 once it gets the upgrade?
  • No. Only the new handsets.
  • Great news
  • About time there was an update but wish there were pivot menus like the msn apps, hate having to use a hamburger to change topic
  • The Guardian Tech reporters are no friends of , Windows or Windows Phone with Charles Arthurs constant anti Microsoft postings at the Guardian. That's what happens when you succumb to wrap around Apple advertising deals.
  • Looks like an Astoria app? Seems unlikely that a company that doesn't update their app for 4 years would deliver such a polished and feature complete app for w10 so fast.
  • You can't make UWA with Astoria ..
  • Guardian's iOS app is awesome
