Intelligently told stories

I get few of the best stories from business and technology here. Storytellers are way better than average paid news media.
Only if we could search through content of stories, it would have been really awesome.

Nutgraf articles not on the app??

The app needs three things:
1. Please make the Nutgraf articles available on the app. No point having to login to the web app just for those since they’re part of the same subscription
2. A dark-mode for reading.
3. Ability to navigate back to the main screen from the search screen. Once I type something into the search bar and want to go back, I can’t because the keyboard stays on the screen. There’s no way to access the menu items at the bottom since the keyboard blocks them. This might be an iPhone only issue.

Good app!

Loving the app so far! Wanted to share some feedback:

I wish there was an option to zoom in on images, esp infographics with text - it gets a bit hard to read small font in the images.

In addition, for link ref dialogue in articles to previous work from The Ken, an option to “save for later” along with “read more” would help as it then would not break the flow :)
