Reason is the monthly print magazine of free minds and free markets. It covers politics, culture, and ideas through a provocative mix of news, analysis, commentary, and reviews. Reason provides a refreshing alternative to right-wing and left-wing opinion magazines by making a principled case for liberty and individual choice in all areas of human activity.

Ridiculously bad

This app is an insult. It simply doesn’t work. My experience of the magazine is diminished by an inability to read it in the manner that I (and many, many others) prefer. I’m less likely to read it and - please get this part, Reason- less likely to resubscribe because of it. Fix this, or else I’ll have to exercise my power as a consumer (you know- the bedrock principle of your entire philosophy) and go elsewhere.

What is the point of this app?

Can’t read recent issues. Also, requires purchase each issue despite being a digital subscriber. Considering cancelling digital subscription after seeing how poor the app is.

So bad

This app is so poor it cannot render the magazine. It’s just a sloppily place pdf that requires pinch zooming and centering just to make it legible.

This should be sorted by now. What other distribution methods does Reason use? Are people still getting the dead tree version?

Unspeakably bad iOS app.
