Fairly basic but functional

It’s a very simple app, and in that sense it does what it is meant to do. It displays each magazine as an issue and you can then move through the articles.

It doesn’t, unfortunately, have any more sophisticated features than that, which you might expect of an app like this. Other magazine-type apps I use have options to change the font size, and have reader modes, dark modes, text-to-speech, etc. This doesn’t seem to have any of those, which is a shame both for general use but especially from an accessibility standpoint.

Really poor app

I purchased a 12 month subscription to this last year and still have many months remaining. Yet the app won’t recognise me and keeps prompting me to purchase the issues.
I am absolutely dumbfounded that an institute as prestigious as MIT would associate its brand with this rather broken app

Cannot login

For a while I have been waiting for this app. I love reading the review and I pay to read the excellent articles. But this is useless bordering on the insulting...... How can the tech review have an app worse than the economist or the times
