5 stars for content,1 for app

About a year after my original review, the app is still useless. It won't take my login info, but gives me an error message and an email address to contact. When I try the email, I get an error that it isn't valid. I love the magazine, but seriously, this app seems to have zero priority. A real shame. I'm changing my rating down to one star.


My experience is exactly the same as Zimmerman's on Dec 1. I have subscribed to digital+paper, and I logged in. Login is very confusing. I have been able to access some issues , but have tried for days to access the issue that just arrived in hard copy, and it wants to charge me for it or take out another subscription. This is a very important publication that many more people should be reading. Please fix the iPhone app!

Needs improvement

You will need a WiFi connection otherwise they are not available and you cannot save for later except by individual arrival. I have a iPad mini which does not offer cellular and it’s the newest model. I like to it on my commute. There also seems to be a disconnect between the magazine and its technology provider. Maz. Although I subscribed it does not recognize my email address. I even changed my password at the Nation website and still no go. My other complaint is, each time you return the app it does not keep your last position. Very annoying. I do love the simplicity. Ability to change the font size would be a plus. The default font auto sizes for the device so the text is still small on a device such as a iPad Air as well as the iPhone.

My Love for the nation.

The nation has long been my reference to human developments that are mostly un- or mis-published elsewhere.
The unique voice of truthful assent and willingness to be truthful even to invite popular anger is a choice the Nation will make more often than not.
To understand the hidden and undercurrents of social movements one must use the frame of the Nation which employed women and people of color in multitudes that Laws had to passed to force other media to the same resources of valid views.
May we celebrate these gifts for an infinite future.
