All users have unlimited access to the Sticker Pack, which is free to download and requires iOS 11 or above. A subscription costs $9.99 a month or $99.99 annually, and includes a 30-day free trial, after which it will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period and will state the cost of renewal. Subscriptions may be managed by the user, and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user’s account settings after purchase. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable. Payment will be charged to iTunes account at confirmation of purchase.

I love reading The New Yorker in print form, but I find the app to be just as good. It’s very convenient for anyone who wants to read TNY when they have downtime; be that on the train, an Uber, downtime at work, etc. It’s smooth and easy to navigate. They recently just extended the amount of articles you’re able to bookmark. Before, you had a certain amount before it capped you. The only thing I wish they would incorporate is the dark-mode screen feature. Maybe they don’t want to add it because they’re trying to keep the same aesthetic and feel of the magazine in the app form, but having that option would be icing on the cake.

Great overall - crossword doesn’t save

Love the overall flow and design. I just have one issue with it: normally when I’m reading an article I can close my phone, even quit the app and when I re-open, it will bring me to right where I was on the article (very helpful for longer ones). However, the same is not true for the crosswords, which is the main reason I use the app (I read the hard copy more).

I love the collaborative feature and have discovered that if I open the crossword with the link it provides in my browser, my work is saved and all is good. However, if I just use the app to fill in the crossword, the moment I close my phone or take a phone call, I’m sent back to the home page. Often, when I find the same crossword again (which isn’t straightforward because they aren’t listed by date in the search), my work is saved. But occasionally the board is wiped clean! Very frustrating.

It’s a bit hit or miss whether the iPad App works

I only started reading the magazine on my iPad about five months ago, and am underwhelmed by the experience. Sometimes the App works, meaning that I can access all the stories from the magazine, and sometimes it doesn’t. The most recent magazine, for example (November 19, 2018) gives me only three “Goings on About Town” items - nothing else. I have closed and opened the App, I have logged out and back in, and even removed and re-installed the App, all with the same result. It would be OK if this was the only time something went wrong - on at least two occasions in the last three months the magazine completely failed to download, and/or told me I didn’t have a subscription. In contrast, I have never had any issues with the iPhone App, which I have been happily using for several years.
