Update made app pointless

I’ve loved the Bon Appétit iPad app for years and preferred it to print issues (I’ve been subscribed for about 4 years and seen the app experience get better and better over time, with fun swipeable layouts for articles, animation, modules you could toggle to make photos easier to view, etc.) The new update gets rid of all the best features about the app and makes it the same as reading the print issue. In particular, the recipe index and separate section for recipes was very important and made it much easier to cook from directly. In the new version of the app, the recipe text is as small as the print issue (actually smaller because I have an iPad mini) and very inconvenient to actually read. I’m so disappointed I’m considering canceling my subscription—it would be easier and more legible to just pull up the recipes on the website than try to read them off the app. I don’t understand why they would go backward like this unless they fired their whole app team.

Ruined a great thing

100% agree with the others who said this latest version is a giant step backward. The former app took a great magazine and made it even better and more useful. The recipe index, pop up recipe pages, story layouts, animation, and high level of interactivity made it perfect and fun for consuming and cooking from via iPad.

It’s not even really an app now so much as it is just a scaled down pdf of the print magazine. It’s hard to read, hard to use, and hard to navigate. Type is to small, you have to flip back and forth between photo and recipe because it’s meant as a two page spread in print.

To add insult to injury, they took all the old fabulous issues away (along with all my bookmarks) so I can’t even refer back to those.

It’s awful in every way. This was the last great iPad magazine app. I’m fairly devastated. They need to revert back but I suspect they won’t for short-sighted, penny pinching reasons. Way to go Condé Nast.

Latest update has frankly ruined the app

This had been one of my favorite apps, making reading Bon Appétit an immersive, interactive experience. I truly can’t name a similar app that had this look and feel. Now, it’s trash. Sorry, your update has taken a clear 5-star app and turned it into something boring and forgettable! Did you lay off the staff that created all the digital features? Much harder to read on top of way more ads! This just feels lazy. Not worth the battery on iPad anymore, I’m afraid to report. Please go back to the previous format. DO NOT UPDATE IF YOU ENJOY THIS APP!
