Should be able to activate via account number even if linked to email

Had subscription label handy, couldn't use it to access the account like I can on the Conde Nast website; it made me enter an email address. So yet another login and password to remember. It is also nagging me to turn on notifications. If it asks too often, I will delete. I am a long time print subscriber.

I cannot believe that the "crosswords," accessible only via search on "crossword," are not listed in chronological order. What possible advertising, data collection, or other benefit to Conde Nast is derived from a random list of puzzles from past dates, making it almost impossible to remember which you've already completed?

subscribers: how to log in 7/21

Like all the 1-star recent reviews have noted, my iPad app wasn't taking me past the Condé Nast web pop-up login screen. It just sits there after I type in my password.

So I gave up and tried to log in on my computer. Same kind of web screen from Condé Nast came up. After I typed in my password *another screen popped up telling me to "check my email for a link to log in*. I clicked on that link and was able to read articles on my computer through the web browser.

So then I did the same thing on the web browser and mail app on my iPad. Same thing happened-- clicking the link in my email on my iPad took me back to my iPad's web browser and I was able to read New Yorker articles in my iPad's web browser.

So then I clicked on the little top bar that offered to "open this article on the The New Yorker app" and that took me to the app. The app (once again) wanted me to confirm that I had a subscription, and it did so through a web pop-up screen, like before. *But this time it had my email/login/password credentials and asked me to select my verified account.* So I clicked on that and now my app is working again. Whew.

Condé Nast or the app-maker needs to fix this. I would give the app 5 stars because I quite like it. But these account verification shenanigans are obviously a problem for every iOS user, have been in place for several months now, and need to be fixed.

Either that, or they need to acknowledge this problem and offer a work-around.

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.
