The app formerly known as The Guardian iPad Edition has been updated and is now renamed to The Guardian and Observer iPad Edition. The name is not the only thing that’s changed though – the new name signals a major update for the app and the inclusion of a Sunday issue powered by the Observer.
The new version is 2.0.1 and here’s the change list for it:
- A Sunday issue is now included as part of the iPad edition: enjoy the Observer’s news sections, Sport, New Review and Magazine
- New subscriptions options to suit you
- User-experience and design enhancements
- Bug fixes and stability improvements
The Guardian and the Observer are both very high quality newspapers. I spent many years living in the UK and both titles were favorites of mine back in those lovely days when I would buy three or four big Sunday papers and spend large chunks of the day and evening reading them.
Here are couple more screenshots from the new Sunday edition, or The Observer iPad Edition, as it is labeled today – these are the main pages for the Observer Sports and Magazine sections:
The Guardian’s iPad edition was already one of the better newspaper titles available for the iPad – it’s good to see it add the Observer and a strong Sunday issue.
Here’s an App Store link for The Guardian and Observer iPad Edition; it’s a free app with subscription options available via In-App purchase.
