I received a notification that the App Developer had sent a reply to my review. When I used the link from the notification, I then received message that Apple App Store could not be reached. So, if you answered me, thank you. I am a bit of a target. It just happens sometimes.

I decided to play Name Drop from one of my New Yorker email newsletters. The answer to one of the quizzes was John Steinbeck. As I was viewing the available articles from the New Yorker about Steinbeck, one offer was from May 1963, Our Man in Helsinki. I chose the article, and it came up successfully in a safe browser. I wanted to view it in the app, so I did a search in the engine on the app. So many, of course, more recent articles about Helsinki, before the last choice in the list, the actual article. I chose the article 3 times through the search process, and the app crashed every time. Now, it will not even display the article as being available, though it was displaying as if it were, earlier. I will go back and view it on a browser. Just letting you know how it went with the app. The issue I wrote to you about earlier, the emptying of my Saved articles and History, have now been restored without me having to do a reinstall and password change. Thanks.

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.

I’m thinking the developers are not finished…

I cannot see my ‘account’ features via the app. I cannot make changes. I cannot see the credit card being used to pay for my subscription. I cannot find anything about the auto-renewal feature and just hope I receive an email at some point PRIOR to being charged for a subscription I may not want because of this kind of hassle. I cannot do anything on this app but read articles and in 2022, I should be able to everything via the app without having to talk to a human to make changes. I would like more information via the app so I can make informed decisions without having to call and think through things with someone I don’t even know. If I have to call to find out information that even may bank has accessible, I will likely cancel on the ‘hassle principal.’ I love the New Yorker but it is 2022 and as long as the billionaires and Corporate Citizens are going to ‘FAKE INFLATION’ so they can have more money, I may not CHOOSE to afford a billionaire’s publication.
