A breathtaking contempt for the user

Granta has always been one of my favorite publications. However I found the app totally unusable. Not only is it unusable, but Granta refuses to provide any support; emails to support are not answered. This is totally unacceptable. I strongly suspect the app does not work with recent incarnations of iOS 11. If you are considering buying this application don’t do it. It is a waste of money and will be frustrating.

I have rarely seen such indifference from a developer. Maybe it is another example of hostility some in the literary class hold towards technology. It’s too bad.

Does not work on iPad with iOS 11.3 - UPDATE

I was able to use the Granta app on my iPad mini until I updated to the latest iOS 11.3. After updating the app freezes when I access the Weekly and when I access the magazine the pages do not display, only the table of contents. I wish Granta would update the app to work with iOS 11.3.
*** UPDATE, 24 May *** Since my review, Granta has released 2 updates. With the latest version 1.0.13 installed the app appears to be working again on my iPad mini. — Thank you Granta!

Keep trying

Seems to me, this app is only half done. It presents The Weekly content as one undifferentiated pile, with the only navigation being next/previous (swipe left/right). No indication of Fiction or Nonfiction. Can I please mark things as read, then hide, so I don’t have to flip through? And, no option menu to select font size, a common feature in a world with multiple screen sizes. Please keep trying, Granta! A good digital option is for me a major lure to subscribe.
