The Guardian has today unveiled its redesigned Guardian Daily app, which with a “simpler focus”, easier navigation and improved UX, aims to create a reading experience “without distractions or interruptions”. Previously only available on iPad, the app is now open to a wider audience with availability on mobile and tablet for iOS and Android.
The Daily is pitched as a “crafted” edition of the newspaper’s key stories, separate from its Live app, prioritising visual clarity with a curated edit of the day’s news. Caspar Llewellyn Smith, digital platforms editor, explains the thinking behind the newly revamped design is to provide readers with an informative and clutter-free respite from the incessant stream of daily news. “We recognise a growing desire among readers for a digital space in which to catch the day’s most important stories at one point in time – away from constant breaking news. The Daily is a beautiful new product that emphasises our strengths in photography and design, and it is edited to let you enjoy some of the world’s best journalism in considered style.”
The Guardian’s chief customer officer Anna Bateson calls it a “thoughtful, considered digital edition of Guardian journalism”.
Readers can choose to read the full edition or swipe through stories and supplements from The Guardian and The Observer. It now forms part of the paper’s digital subscription.
