Needs improvement

The app is designed well, the typography is great and the reading experience is overall satisfying. Unfortunately it also lacks critical features from an app designed to be a reader:

1. Mark as read: Articles or issues should give the option to be marked as read — or automatically marked as read. Many a times I scroll through the previous issues to see which issue I haven’t finished yet at.
2. Sync with audio: Often times I prefer to read the article but cannot at the moment. In such cases, having the option of listening is great, however if I’m not through listening and decide to decide to finish the article by reading. It is not possible to find where I was left off. There should be a sink feature where the audio can mark until where the user has listened to the article.

July 2022, forced app upgrade, dumped old saved issues

Longtime print - online subscriber and reader here. Was pleased that with prior “print edition” app i could download AND SAVE issues to view on a large-screen ipad, or a mini for airplane reading. After a forced app upgrade years ago, all my saved full issues deleted, had to redownload each and every one. On a rural connection DSL it takes a minute per issue and mind numbing icon stroking and scrolling. July 2022, again, the app is upgraded, all my saved issues are not ported to the upgraded app. I got to a google-fiber wifi to download issues, all over again. (Edited) at first it looked like i could only download current year issues. Then i went back and noticed a “year” scroll menu (top right, then bottom) to allow prior-year issue download. Back to 2008. So, next app upgrade, will CN continue to refresh archives, or will the old bits just vanish?

Twice, issues were not imported in the app upgrade. Remember, readers. Your online media are ephemeral. If you value the content, save the print edition, because CondeNaste may or may not continue to refresh any paid-for archive of digital content. Fortunately, my “saved articles” list, which was initially blank after the upgrade, reappeared after a minute or two- i think it is intact?. So, rating: content quality, 5 stars. Delivery and loss of archives, zero stars. Old issues have been deleted twice, now.

Most Frustrating App Ever

I have gone in so many circles trying unsuccessfully to access my digital subscription through this app that I am on the verge of canceling my subscription altogether. At one point, days into this, it FINALLY asked for my email and password. Once I entered them the app sent me back to square one for the umpteenth time. It is Sunday night and customer service is closed. I am sure there is a simple answer to this, but FAQs doesn’t address it even though I see other comments describing the same dilemma.
(Part II) By posting this negative review I received a more detailed response to my customer service requests and an offer to edit my review, which I am now doing by adding this text which I hope will be helpful to customers, customer care and the developer of this app: sign out and then sign back in with your email and password. “Sign out” is nowhere indicated, and it would have spared me weeks of aggravation. Now that I am able to access the content that I subscribed to, the app functions as well as I would hope with high quality graphics. I would like to raise my rating to 5 stars, but I can’t in good faith until the app provides clear instructions on how to link content. Without this minor correction, the app is useless. If I missed something I apologize and am open to raising my rating as I do appreciate how much work went into this otherwise excellent app.
