Decent App

This is a good magazine and a decent app. I appreciate the developers fixing the scrolling bug that was so irritating. However, I still would like to be able to search for articles, and wish I had some control of the column width for easier reading. I still prefer to read in Safari sometimes to have better control.

Original Review: Loses place in article

This is a great magazine but I have some problems with the app. First, if you leave in the midst of reading a long article to say, check you email, upon your return the app returns to the top of the article and you lose your place. I’ve never seen another reading app do this! Please fix it. It is so annoying I often read long articles in Safari instead of this app. Second, I’d like to be able to control the margin size in addition to the font size. The column width is too wide on a full-size iPad to be comfortable for me. Otherwise, I find this app easy to navigate and like it.

Developer Response ,

We’ve fixed this bug in the latest 6.1.1 update. Please try it out. Thank you for your patience.

Okay app - but could be great

I am a long time subscriber to The Atlantic. I still get the print magazine but honestly do most of my Atlantic reading electronically. I was really excited when I first got the app, but have only been frustrated since. First, it is the most unintuitive app I think I have used in a long time. Having to dig 3 to 4 steps down to even find the magazine edition. It shouldn’t be an expedition to find the most recent magazine. I understand having the feed to read popular articles, but the joy of The Atlantic is “paging” through the magazine to read different articles that I wouldn’t typically click on in a news feed. Second, SEARCH. How can there not be a search function??? Search is one of the most useful reasons to read newspapers and magazines in electronic format. Please, please, please add search function. Third, Font Size. I can’t be alone in the demographics of The Atlantic subscribers in needing glasses or larger fonts to read comfortably. This is probably the second biggest reason to read content electronically instead of the print version. Please add the ability to adjust the size of the font.
I still enjoy The Atlantic and think it is one of the best sources for in depth analysis of current events and culture. However, until these issues are addressed I will probably continue to link to The Atlantic on the internet instead of through the app.

Love the Atlantic, so so about the app...

I'm an Atlantic subscriber who likes both the physical copy and to peruse current digitally and this app isn't the best experience. A few small improvements would go a very long way. First, it's hard to understand why the magazine is buried under "sections", it is not at all intuitive to find, but at least, once you know, you know. The second mind boggling aspect of the app is the lack of a search function. This makes it impossible to research topics, and very difficult to find articles, even current ones. Please add a search function, it's a consistent theme in reviews and a real problem for users.
