Poet audio makes for a better publication than print!

Excellent, intuitive design. Accessible audio and text. Hold your phone sideways for the correct line breaks. I’m not sure if it’s default night-mode, but the white text on black is really nice. Love the downloadable issues! They’ve perfected the format of monthly publication on a phone. Maybe even nicer than a physical mag! Controversial, but i LOVE the audio recordings of people reading their poems. 10/10 excellent work!

Amazing App for an Already Amazing Publication

Although I’ve also become a print subscriber, I decided to give the app a go and it has not disappointed. Simple, streamlined. Elegant font and enjoyable layout. A new favorite.

Improved but still problematic

I'm so glad the Poetry Foundation re-vamped this app. The layout of each issue is much better, it allows landscape view on iPhone (hallelujah) and the UI is much improved.

However, it still has one same issue that the former had. It is still having difficulty retrieving past purchases through iTunes and not a subscription. It keeps saying it can't connect to iTunes. For those who have purchased many back issues (like me!) that makes the app, and also our historical purchases, way less valuable.
