Nothing like it

The New Yorker is, unequivocally, the best magazine money can buy. Its quality of writing and aesthetic appeal is unbeatable. Bear in mind, though, this is slightly different than a normal news app, where one scrolls through a list of stories. Here, you download an issue of the magazine, then can navigate though the 10-12 stories per issue there. If you are looking for a more traditional news app experience (very similar design to the apps by the New York Times and The Atlantic), use the New Yorker Today app; it has most of the stories from the week’s magazine, as well as new articles that come out throughout the week. All things considered, The New Yorker is definitely worth the cost of subscription.

It stinks, really. Less than one star.

Well now they’ve made it even more difficult to read my favorite magazine. I switched from the print edition several years ago because I had trouble reading printed material. I have to shout this but THIS MAGAZINE NEEDS SCALABLE FONT!!! Reading the new and exciting version is even more exasperating than before. The choices are tiny font too small to see and then a big jump up to the next font that you can’t hold far enough away. Next step is gigantic, presumably for first-graders. Every other magazine I read on line can allow zooming using the standard motion every iPad user can accomplish. When I complained about it in the past they referred me to a digital format that is even more impossible to navigate. I don’t know if that still exists but I gave up on it ages ago. Is the any help for a hapless reader? I pay a lot for great writing in a poorly thought out format. Has anyone actually tried to read this thing???? Also, no going back to last article read, and no returning to same place left off in an article. Piece of junk, a disservice to readers and an insult to some of the best writers on the planet. Will this review change anything? Doubt it. Wake up! The digital format is SERIOUSLY TERRIBLE!

Comically Bad Roll-Out

A comically bad roll-out of an updated app. The glitches are numerous and glaring, my two favorite so far being: in multiple issues there’s no way to scroll through the cartoons in the cartoon round-up at the end, you can just see the first cartoon and that’s it; in another issue (July 8 & 15) they left out ALL THE ARTICLES. I tried downloading it multiple times and you get everything up through the Goings On About Town, then it skips directly to the cartoon round-up, which leaves out, umm, the entire magazine. On the plus side, at least in that issue the cartoon round-up is functioning!

Oh yes, and as someone else mentioned, if you’re part way through an article and you scroll to a different article then scroll back, you’ll find yourself right back at the top of the article. It doesn’t remember where you were.

For a magazine whose reputation is built on a sort of snooty, self-satisfied perfectionism, suffice it to say the app feels decidedly off-brand.
