4.0 out of 5 stars Great paper 31 Jan. 2013
By mark winter TOP 1000 REVIEWER

I really enjoy reading this newspaper and was delighted when this app became available. Once installed it automatically downloads the current days newspaper (25mb ish).

Having used this app for the past few days I have found it very good. The text is very clear and easy to read, but it is a little too large, and cannot be re-sized. The app displays the paper in portrait. This works fine, but it would be nice to have the choice of viewing landscape too.

In summary a great app and a great newspaper. The only slight disappointments are the lack of customisation. It would be nice to re-size the text and view the paper landscape. That aside I highly recommend this app.

I sometimes don't get the chance to grab a metro so this is ideal allowing me my daily metro fix without having to leave the house.

4.0 out of 5 stars Metro App 6 Feb. 2013
By JMcC

I've been quite impressed with this - especially as a 'freebie'. I rather like the Metro, and as I don't commute the way I used to, rarely get to read it. This easy-to-use app has enabled me to get a free daily newspaper for my Kindle Fire. I would recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great - if you're optically challenged 10 May 2013
By guilbo

Decent newspaper but the font is so huge it would only be comfortable to read if my arms were twice their length. An average of about 6 words per line is just plain headache inducing. The help page says the Kindle edition can vary the text size but I'm blowed if I can find a setting. Until I do I'd rather read the printed version (sorry trees) or use the BBC News app which is a major improvement although it lacks reviews and puzzles.

I have eventually worked out how to delete a copy which is no longer required. Again the app help contains misinformation:

- Go to the page showing the issues.
- At the top-left there is a Metro logo with the word "Store" beside it. Tap "Store"
- This gives 2 choices, "Store" and "Library". Tap "Library".
- This will show the issues you have stored locally. Do a linger on the one you want to delete and you will be given the option to remove it.

EDIT...Just noticed the entry field for the caption competition doesn't work either, it doesn't pop up a keyboard and is therefore useless.
