I used to travel on the tube daily to work, and always read the metro. However, this app is pretty poor! It is way behind any other media. Very difficult to navigate and very frustrating to try and read. If you like to pick an app up, open it and then read a page of news, turn to next story and then the next story in an easy flowing way.... then this is NOT the app for you!

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 used to really look forward to reading Metro on my commute to work, I even bought my kindle specifically for this app, because I was sick of inky hands. Now all I feel is frustration - content doesn't download, half the story is missing, only one letter on the talk page, endless videos which I don't want to watch. WHY Metro did you destroy a good thing?!

I have always enjoyed Metro, and to be able to have it on my Kindle to read at any time is a bonus. The news is up to date and very readable.

Like the others who have commented, no use at all. I have tried deleting the app and restarting the Kindle, but still no go.

Great content, quick download of content, just wish you had the option to read in landscape, as some text is small. Would be even better if you could get the kindle to use its audio reader so that I could listen to the news whilst I drive to work !
