One major problem

I love this app. It works so well when I don’t have time to bring the print version with me, or when I’m on the go. I love that I don’t have to read the articles in a PDF type format—but instead each one is sorted into a completely digitized and easy to read version. My problem is that there is no way to save where I am in an article if I decide to finish reading it later. Every time I close the app I open it back up and I have to find where I was reading last, which is quite difficult considering that many of the articles are in long essay format. Please add a feature that remembers where I am in each article!

Working well now (update)

Happy again with this. Have always been happy with The Atlantic. Thanks for the follow up.

I’ve been a print subscriber for many years. I’d love to be able to reliably read Atlantic on my iPad, but I rarely do because it gives me nothing but trouble. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve paired the app with my subscription only to have it disconnect a few weeks later and force me through a cumbersome process again. For the past couple of months it gives me a blank screen when I try to pair it with my print subscription. It’s been troublesome trough so many releases that I’ve nearly given up. I come back after many months away to give it one more try, only to be frustrated again. Can’t imagine why it’s so hard for a top notch outfit to get its app right.

Hi there, sorry for the frustrating experience you've had so far! Our latest app update includes a fix for subscribers seeing the white screen during set up. If you could, please sign out of the app if you are signed in currently, tap your home button twice and swipe The Atlantic app image up and off of your screen, re open the app and try to log in with your credentials again.
If you continue to see the white screen during set up, please email us at and we will be happy to help you troubleshoot further!

A couple missing features and a bug

I love the Atlantic app! I think that it has come so far from a couple of years ago when it was just clunky and almost unusable. The interface feels much cleaner now and it all is laid out better. Even so, however, I can’t give it five stars for the following reasons.

First, the search functionality is not available on the iOS app. It’s in the FAQ so developers are aware of this, but I think that is a pressing issue. Even if it was only available to premium subscribers, I would pay to support and gain that functionality.

Next, on the topic of search, I tried to click on an Author’s name to see all of the articles he wrote. This brought me to an in-app web browser of the Atlantic online. That’s alright if it can integrate with the app and if clicking on an article would bring me back, but it doesn’t.

Last, there’s a slight bug when rotating the article. On iPad, when you rotate from portrait to landscape and back, the article loses its place and you have to start over and find your place again. This is really frustrating for cover stories that are extremely long.

Other than that, great app! Like I said, definitely improved!
