The Adult in American Political and Social Thought

Journalism that is more valuable than ever — a go to source for anyone who believes a well-informed, critically thinking citizenry of independent thought is still essential for a flourishing society.

Digitally, The Atlantic is both pulse and perspective on the relevant issues of importance with content that is digestible and accessible. (I really like the internal links to other articles, as well as other sites.)

The magazine is the place for big ideas and emerging issues with writing that is thought provoking, trustworthy, and typically fascinating. Liberal bias? They are so far above any such labeling with some of the best minds in a diverse cross section of experience and sensibilities, and content that is a worthy addition to knowledge.

Returning Subscriber

I was a subscriber through Google to which I could only get the magazine on the google news app which I thought was ridiculous. Switching over to the iPhone XR I downloaded the Atlantic and subscribed again. I don’t know what everyone is complaining about, the new layout is beautiful. I like the today section plus I get to hear the articles through the SoundCloud link that’s been put up on some articles. The dark mode is perfect. I let go of the New York Times because they hadn’t gone to dark mode yet. It’s just too bright. LA Times has and they have a great layout as well. Anyways great job Atlantic. You’re the app is great and you’ve got a subscriber for life.

Substantial step back

The extended abstracts take up unnecessary space, yet I have no real contention with the desires of the editorial staff for greater control over the immediate content.

But removing any sort of search function? If I see a story in a social media feed, or have one recommended in person by a friend (people still talk, editors) it’s effectively impossible to find that story in the app. I am supposed to guess at the section, then scroll and scroll and scroll until I find it? What if I’d like to read a last article? Bookmarks shouldn’t be the only option.

This needed field testing before the full release. I understand the challenge of Peter and Oliver’s call to “rethink everything about the way we present ourselves” but this was a poor showing. Rethink it again.
