No problems - are others reading on iPhone or iPad?

Maybe I'm just lucky, but the app works just fine for me. Downloading issues, navigating, and reading content all work fine. I'm reading on a third generation iPad because I don't like the experience of reading magazines on an iPhone. Don't know if that makes a difference as to how the app functions.

I'm a little surprised to see only 12 reviews. Hope that doesn't correlate to the number of subscribers!

Unintuitive, confusing

Very glitzy, lots of confusing choices, links to old outdated articles. Have to search for the current magazine. Too cute for it's own good. Makes a chore out of simply reading the magazine.

Adding insult to injury the new "improved" version won't load the magazine. Can't sign in. Customer service says they are having problems, but no acknowledgement on their website.

The new design may be nice but the app and website are broken. As another review put it, HELP!!!!!

Feb 2 update: can sign into website but not iPad app. Who designed this mess?

Feb 9 update. New version still can't sign in with this bug ridden app!!!

Feb 16 finally working if you use email address instead of user name on sign in.

Getting used to app. Would be better for us seniors if you could enlarge the font-- hopefully will change in next iteration.

Amazed that a so-called program guru (Hughes) would allow such a poorly designed app to be released.

March 18: Not bad. Smallish unadjustable print. Hard for my elderly eyes. If no change I won't renew. Similar to The New Yorker app--but less readable, for me.

Old review from a few years ago. Unfortunately little change still very small fonts almost unreadable.....glad there is a New Republic but wish they'd do something with this app

Good magazine, terrible app

I love TNR's content, but the app stinks. The app's biggest problem is that it doesn't allow me to download the newest issue until months after the paper magazine hits my mailbox. I have tried refreshing the app and restoring my purchases to no avail. The app still only shows the July issue as the most recent.

For a magazine that supposedly let the majority of its staff walk out because it was going to focus on digital content, this app's failure should be a complete embarrassment.

On the positive side, the issues I am able to see work great. The digital magazine is laid out well and functions smoothly. In the future TNR should work to incorporate more interactive features to enrich the user experience. At this point, however, I'd just like them to fix the app's most basic functions.
