In addition, you will find an easy search function, the weekly TLS podcast and full access to years of back issues. From fiction to philosophy, religion to politics, social studies to film: TLS readers can decipher, discuss and delve into it all.

The TLS app is free to download and you can access the contents in the following ways:

1) If you subscribe to the TLS, simply log in by using your surname and your subscriber number.

2) You can buy individual issues for £2.99 or an auto-renewing subscription at £7.99pm from the iTunes store.

Subscription renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of your current period, otherwise the account will be charged as normal. You can manage your subscription and turn off auto-renewal by going to Account Settings.

Wonderful TLS, awful app layout

Please, please restore the multi column version of the app. Reading the screen wide columns is unwieldy. Worse, the charming illustration headings for Letters and NB are woefully pixellated and made ugly to see. At the very least allow us to switch between views according to our preferences.

Sign In

You seem to be incapable of sorting out a problem with your North American edition that has plagued me for years. It frequently asks me to log in again. With the London Review of Books and the New York ditto, once you are logged in you never have to do it again. Perhaps you could go to them for a helping hand.
