Fair and Balanced

These days, when our national administration rounds any news it doesn’t like as a “fake, “ it is refreshing to see a magazine publish excerpts from news articles from across the country taking into account all viewpoints. I may not agree with the editorial content of the National Review or the Wall Street Journal, but it’s at least nice to know what they’re saying and why.

The Week is my irreplaceable “go to” source to catch up on the weekly news.

Cannot open any issues

Tried to download the latest issue. App is very slow and takes several seconds to load content to opening screen. Buttons for latest issue are just pulsing gray bars for several seconds and then disappear entirely. Nothing to click on to download/read issue. Cleared all background apps and rebooted iPad. No change. Deleted and reinstalled app. No change. Tried to open last week’s issue, which the library says is downloaded. Same problem — buttons to read the issue disappear. There is no way to open any issues. There is a brief pop up black bar at bottom of screen which says “ Unexpectedly Error: Pricing information not available.”

Great Mag | Crapp app

I have always enjoyed the week’s overview coverage of the big news along with its promotion of smaller stories I don’t necessarily find from other sources.

This app, however, was never great, and now is barely functional. A few gripes that need to be addressed:
1. Do the basic stuff correctly - every week, there are three or four page turns that cause the app to freeze. Current workaround is to view the stuck pages in pdf mode.
2. Once I open an issue, if I close the app and come back later the app return to that page. I don’t want to start at the app home page if I’m in the middle of an issue.
