“WORLD gives me the news and helps me to engage with culture in such a way that compels me to pray instead of despair.” —WORLD Reader
WORLD produces sound journalism, grounded in facts and Biblical truth. Through print magazines, online articles, and podcast programs, our trained journalists report on current events both global and national so that readers and listeners can see how God is at work in the world, no matter the headlines.
WORLD readers and listeners are made up of thoughtful believers who aim to competently talk about and pray about the news. They can think for themselves and prefer to draw their own conclusions. They want the truth, and they understand that the truth demands a Biblical context, or it’s not the whole truth. News delivered this way compels them to act. Led by the Spirit, they are often emboldened to pray, love, and serve others in light of what they learn.
Easily access all of WORLD's magazine, digital, and podcast content in one place with this updated version of the app.

I listen every morning as an essential part of my day. Fair, impartial, unbiased news reporting that includes lots of interesting background material. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Bring back offline viewing and magazine experience

I like dark mode availability with the latest update, but version 5 removed several essential features I used all the time. I can no longer download the magazine for offline viewing. I can no longer read the magazine from beginning to end. Instead I have to click on each item presented in a different order from the magazine order. The app no longer remembers where I left off reading.

Thankfully I can download a PDF of the app to bypass the app going forward, but it is not a very good experience either. I will not be reading as much of the magazine due to these usability issues. Please fix, and soon!

Developer Response ,

We hear your fustration and apologize for the inconvience. We have been working hard to give you a nice magazine experience and still offer all our news and podcast content. We have released a new version 7.1 in the store that hopefully addresses your concerns. There are two ways to read the magazine, web or pdf version. Web version: Here you can enjoy the articles that are published on our website magazine page. Select and enjoy reading an article. At the end of the article, it will allow you to select UP NEXT to move to the next article. You can always click the back button to go back to the main page and select the article you want. PDF version: You will notice a Subscribe link on the top right if you are not logged in or PDF link if you are logged in. If you are interested in reading the PDF, select the PDF button to open it. Here you can read it in order of the actual magazine with pinch and zoom feature enabled. Download PDF: On Apple, if you wish to download it, select DOWNLOAD. This will open the magazine in your browser. Select the share icon on the top right and choose Books or any other PDF viewer app. This opens the pdf in a nice scrollable version. Here you can turn your device horizontally or vertically, pinch and zoom, bookmark your page and come back to read it later with or without internet access.

App doesn’t work properly after latest update

I can't access the digital magazine now on the World Magazine app on my iPad, and I have canceled my auto-renew subscription. I see the articles and magazine editions but nothing loads on the page when I click on the article or magazine. I signed out and then signed back in but still no content, and then I deleted and reinstalled the app but still can’t see magazine content. I miss the previous version where I simply browsed through the complete magazine rather than the current look.

I will miss World Magazine for it’s faithful worldview, but I can’t read what I can’t see. Please fix this app for other users who may be experiencing this issue.
