  • Won't open-please issue update!

    By ngarber
    I guess it doesn't play nice with the latest iOS update. 😢😢
  • Crashes 100% of the time

    By Pono650
    The latest version crashes immediately on startup every single time.
  • Very poor app

    By Spiderpersson
    I have been a paid subscriber for years. It takes a long time for an issue to download. Once downloaded it is OK, but if you go to read further or use any of the extra features, it tells you you have used x of 10 free articles that month. When you try to sign in again (which should not be necessary) it tells you the site is under construction, come back later. Very poor app construction.
  • Won’t open since yesterday’s iOS update

    It shuts down immediately
  • Won't let me access my paid Apple subscription

    By Dave McA
    My weekly experience with this app is to struggle for 15 to get it to recognize my Apple subscription. The “Restore Purchases for Apple Subscriptions” does not open. A telephone call to the New Yorker customer service is a waste of time; they can offer no help whatsoever. This is the worst app we own. Can’t they fix it?
  • Embarrassingly Poor User Experience

    By Meandertaal
    I’ve given up on using this app and retried it several times, but it still is so tedious to use. Here are a few of my main complaints. - It crashes regularly, sometimes requiring a reinstall, and reentry of the login information. - Ads are not only placed both on the side and inline, but also disrupt the reading experience. Whenever an ad refreshes, the screen goes blank for about a second, and the content is moved around. As the reader, I lose my place in the article, have to visually search for it again, and often have to scroll up or down. - Scrolling is affected by ads as well. After placing the first line of text after an ad at the top of the display, the ad placement is readjusted, and covers the first few lines that I just was about to read. As others pointed out, this is not about the content, but the user experience. While I enjoy reading other magazines on the iPad, for this one it’s back to the print version.
  • Great content, bad app

    By TelegramSam55
    Love the magazine but the app is just not well-designed and buggy. Constantly “forgets” my subscription and re-logging in is near-impossible due to error messages and navigations to nowhere. “Connection error - try again later” but later never comes. Other media apps do this stuff so much better.
  • iPhone X?

    By AngryRedCardinalBird
    Update version history claims support for iPhone X, but latest version doesn't use the whole screen.
  • Very frustrating

    By Dc ranch
    I have a subscription for both digital and magazine delivery. When I try to read the digital articles on my iPad I get that I have read all my Free articles. I have emailed and called to get this worked out with no success. They tell me to sign in and I follow all directions but still not getting the digital articles. This is the most unsatisfactory app and subscription I have ever had more!!
  • Not updated for iPhone X.

    By underdosed
    This review in no way reflects my feelings toward the content of the magazine, which I find to be spectacular. But in regards to the app itself, heinous. Despite its claims to the contrary, The New Yorker app is not optimized for the iPhone X. Black bars across the top and bottom of the screen do not constitute an iPhone X–friendly design. I find the proportions so aesthetically bereft, getting through the content now feels a chore. Please update this app for current devices. Or, at the very least, amend your app’s currently false description.
