Foreign Policy is a forum for informed debate about politics from around the world. Every day, we publish new ideas, intelligent arguments, and forward-looking analyses on all things global affairs. FP aims to inform and engage government, corporate, NGO, multilateral, academic and think tank executives around the world, as well as anyone interested in the impact of politics on the world’s peoples.

Ratings and Reviews
App is Fantastic
Haven't yet validated the quality of the content yet; as a fiscal conservative, I'm politically neutral and prefer to have my news unbiased, so I came here seeking an alternative to the WP and WSJ; so I'm a new subscriber on that front... BUT, I can definitely say, the quality of the app is superior for sure. The only thing that would be nice, is to be able to highlight certain aspects of an article, like I used to be able to in other apps with subscriptions at this high of a price point. It's not cheap to subscribe at approx $27/mo USD, esp if you go through iTunes, but fair news and a solid app without a crap-ton of ads is more important to me than Starbucks; so hey, to each - their own.
Great content poor UI/UX
Been a subscriber for over 10 years on and off. And while I love the content and always appreciate the in-depth reporting and FP analysis; the iOS App is a poor platform for displaying your great works.
The FP website is much better. The app lacks any decent elastic search capability, the fact I cannot look up articles by title or author easily is disturbing for a 2018 media-based app.
My “starred”/saved articles seem to disappear without notice when I review them.
The processing and loading of articles is timely nothing like my other media apps such as NY times , Wash Post, WSJ, or Medium. There are a lot of UI lessons to be learned from those for FP app.
The ability to subscribe only by defined topics instead of user defined is also a poor way to push info to user. Simple topics like “intelligence” or “security cooperation” don’t appear to exist.
The ability for user defined tags to articles would also be a benefit to the app. And help crowd source your search engine and parameters.
Also the app doesn’t appear to display the amazing graphics from the website and magazine for which FP is famous. A lack of info graphics and save them to a user’s device seems like a necessary fix for any media app.
Again FP’s content is amazing but how it is disseminated in the app is disappointing. I look forward to app updates and am hoping the app catches up with the highly renown website and magazine.
High quality analysis and commentary
FP is one of the best publications out there for world affairs, with a broad array of perspectives and expertise. From Pulitzer-winning war correspondents to widely regaled academics, the pieces that offer personal perspectives or insights all start at very credible sources. Despite that, I never find the publication dry. And the app is well made to give a casual reader a taste of 5 articles monthly -- although I think you'll be quickly sucked in and become a subscriber if this type of content is at all for you!
