Excellent journalism made easily accessible

This is my go-to news app. The curated news feed and insightful reporting make this a top-notch news app

Poor use of screen real estate.

Excellent journalism, but the app does a very poor job helping me find it. When I open the app, I see ‘Good afternoon’, an image, and not a single article until I scroll down further. Almost as if the app was designed exclusively for a nursing home and/or vision impaired audience.

As I scroll, the entire screen real estate of my iPad is used to show just one article at a time. If I go to ‘Latest’, I am shown three articles at a time, with a huge amount of white space in between.

This app makes it very time consuming to get a cross section of the latest journalism from The Atlantic. That’s a real shame.

Another major frustration I have is that the app loses my place in an article and takes me back to the start if I rotate between portrait and landscape. This is a major annoyance on a long article where you find yourself trying to get back to where you were.

Top quality journalism, but the app UI/UX needs an overhaul.

Where is the search function?

High quality journalism but an app that leaves much to be desired. Most importantly where is the search function? I had to go to Google to find Caitlin Flanagan’s last piece. Why can’t I find it in the app?
There is a comment from 10 months ago from a developer saying they are working on it. Please add that function.
