Ratings and Reviews
Good App For Intriguing Magazine
Beckon for Center Right journalism with even opposing views sprinkled in to get perspective. Best stable of writers across the conservative spectrum that usually stay away from the T word for or against. Lowry might be best editor around just because he accepts so many points of view with main goal being it better be good writing. I got pulled into the writing more and more, became an avid podcast listener (one of the best and entertaining though they need to figure out how to get 4 people back on at the same time). Now am NR+ sub and cant wait for the monthly to come out.
Crash issues fixed?!?
Nope. An apparent fix lasted all of a week. All articles again randomly crash in a white screen. The user can only go back to the home screen, find the article they were reading again, then try to scroll back to where they left off reading. It may happen 2 or 3 more times when trying to get through a longer article.
I had theorized that it was caused by script issues with their ads but who knows. They had seemed to completely fix it for a week or two in December 2017 but it is back to being nearly unusable.
I still give 3 stars because of course the content is excellent and impossible to find elsewhere curated all in one place. It is worth some frustration, but this is sisyphean.
Fantastic paper, terrible app
National Review has some of the highest quality writing to be found in modern journalism. That being said, the quality of their work is totally immaterial if their app is so buggy that I can simply never enjoy it. Often times I will wait up to a minute for the article full of well articulated points to load only to have the app stutter and fail to display any content at all. Other times, the app seems to forget that I am a proud subscriber and insist that I’ve reached my free limit of articles to read. After logging in (while checking and verifying that I am in fact logged in) the app will carry you in an endless loop, neither verifying that you are logged or accepting the log in credentials you are presenting.
All in all, my favorite source of journalism and news while being my least favorite app.
