The Guardian • iPad edition FREE for 3 months

Dear Mr Echo Avatar
4y, 10m agoFound 4 years, 10 months ago
The Guardian has just launched it's iPad edition and it's free to subscribe for the next three months. So you'll get the next 86 or so editions for free but make sure that you turn off auto-renew unless you want to continue to subscribe. I've downloaded it today and my next sub payment would be 13th January 2012.

Now I know there are plenty of people who don't like this particular paper... if you do feel the need to unload any repressed vitriol against the Guardian... this probably isn't the place for it - but you're going to anyway so bring it on!!! :D

I suspect the majority of readership in this country demand the form of journalism that has boobies on page 3.

Ironically, the Guardian readership are roughly the only people in this country who know what communism actual is.

Brilliant to the both of you!! ;)

Methinks it should be - why would you want to read this rubbish...

...and the answer is, as @sits69 observes, only if you like a different sort of page 3. oO ...

...and I would add that it gets read by the people who appreciate joined up thinking.

I would also ask @marcusherbert what he considers to be a non-rubbish newspaper?

Just a word of caution - if this is the smae offer that I was sent then the smallprint in is a 3 year sign up after the trial period. I know that the plan is to cancel before the charges start, however, if u mis the deadline the 3 year tie in is excessive in my opnion.

P :)

Where did you read this? It's £9.99 a month after trial end - no mention of any tie in period at all... it would seem very unlikely.

The Guardian is a load of unrestrained ****. They'd have to be paying me for this to be a reasonable deal.

They could give this rubbish for free for 12 months and it would still be worth less then zero

Look out of the windows of the train in your commute, you'll learn more about the world!

The iPhone edition is great, probably the best news app in terms of presentation and UI.

Hypocritical lefty diatribes on Thatcher, wasting tax payer's money and global warming? I'd pay not to read it but, unfortunately, I'm on Twitter:(.

Not a massive fan of the paper but will try anyway once my iPad is updated to iOS5

Miss not having the Telegraph to glance over from when that used to be free.

Yes, but they don't call them communists they call them "comrades".

I always thought the Guardian was just stories about Princess Diana and Cricket.

It's basically the Daily Mail for people who are actually middle class and not pillocks pretending to middle class and educated (no I don't read it, I read The Sun as them birds in briefs certainly put the world to rights ;) ).

decent sports section, interesting slant on everything else....not sure why it draws such vitriol...no doubt from people who have never read it.

I bet all of the people knocking the Guardian in this thread have never even read it. Let me remind you all that nobody would even have know about the hacking scandal were it not for the Guardian, the politicians were in Murdoch's pocket and no other newspaper thought it right to attack one of their own.

Anyway back on topic, great offer. If it's not to your taste then ignore the offer, its a free informative newspaper for 3 months.

Apparently HUKD is a gathering place for the readership of the journalistic axis of evil, compromising the Sun, Daily Fail and Torygraph.

The Guardian is not racist, xenophobic, sexist or homophobic and is thus not suitable or satisfying reading material for the demagogues that read the aforementioned offerings.

For anyone who wants an excellent, award-winning publication that doesn't believe the country's ills are down to muslims, gays, single-mums, Europe, immigrants, the Welfare State or Labour, then by all means, subscribe to the Guardian.

Am I allowed to post about the deal, or does it have to be a rant for/against the paper? Let's see...


Do you get anything from the app that you wouldn't be able to get from just visiting the Guardian website (which is always free)?

Considering that most of the countries problems ARE down to 13 years of Labour government, which included hugely excessive levels of immigration, the largest welfare state in our history, many of our rights being given away to Europe, and the influx of Muslims into this country which has created white flight, segregation, and unrest in many communities.

I would suggest that the Guardian is infact, wrong, and infact a load of left wing, marxist drivel, and 'Excellent' is not quite the right word to describe its 'opinions'.

Oh, and its readers are the most smug bunch of champagne socialists there are, who still blame Thatcher for every single problem in the past 20 years, forgetting that Labour held power for 13 of them.

Good afternoon Nick Griffin. Shouldn't you be organizing your latest rally?

Calling people socialists as a form of insult does not constitute a particular intelligence or imagination on your part. Considering it was your beloved Capitalistic Free Market system that has caused the abominable destruction of the world's finances, a misguided adventure departed upon by Manic Maggie 20 years ago and shamefully continued by New Labour, sticking your nose in the air and reciting ad nauseum The Fail and Torygraphs favourite right-wing talking points is a rather hollow argument on your part.

Put it this way, I'd rather be a Champagne Socialist than a Coca-Cola Capitalist.
