Ratings and Reviews
Please get rid of or update audio
The New Yorker is fantastic. I wrote this review mainly to see if the powers that be at the New Yorker could possibly update their audio availability. Audm is kind of lacking. You can’t easily rewind or fast forward with any accuracy. You can’t speed up. Also, very limited selections of the magazine are available for listening. Not that I’m illiterate, but it is nice to be able to listen to selections when reading isn’t a viable option. For a model to follow, I suggest taking a look at The Economist’s app. The entire magazine is available for listening and done very well with great production value. It would be great to be able to have the functions above (skip forward and listen at variable speeds). Also, I think it’s a bit much to ask me to purchase another app (Audm) when I already pay a pretty fair price for my New Yorker subscription. Again, The Economist does not do this and they set a great example.
Otherwise the app is pretty user friendly. I’d like to be able to bookmark favorite cartoons. Also, as far as audio content is concerned, The New Yorker radio hour is outstanding. Overall, please keep up the fantastic work at The New Yorker!
It’s a bit hit or miss whether the iPad App works
I only started reading the magazine on my iPad about five months ago, and am underwhelmed by the experience. Sometimes the App works, meaning that I can access all the stories from the magazine, and sometimes it doesn’t. The most recent magazine, for example (November 19, 2018) gives me only three “Goings on About Town” items - nothing else. I have closed and opened the App, I have logged out and back in, and even removed and re-installed the App, all with the same result. It would be OK if this was the only time something went wrong - on at least two occasions in the last three months the magazine completely failed to download, and/or told me I didn’t have a subscription. In contrast, I have never had any issues with the iPhone App, which I have been happily using for several years.
Bookmarks won't work
Saving where you're at on an article is an amazing feature when it works. Half the time I reopen the article, I'm at the top of the article instead of where I left off. It doesn't matter if I manually bookmark it, or close out of the app - it sometimes works, and other times it won't.
The app works fine aside from that, but considering the length of the articles, that's a pretty necessary feature.
I do wish there were fun ways to discover old articles I may not find otherwise (a retrospective, editor's choice, browse by tags, etc.), or that the old articles went back even further.
