  • Terrible app

    By Hill Country Bob
    Nowhere in the app can I find the status of my subscription, renewal method, or method of payment. It doesn't even show up in the AppStore under subscriptions. AND I was recently fraudulently charged $99.99 by National Review (under investigation). They need to fix this fast!
  • No issues

    Works fine on my iPhone 5s.
  • Constantly Crashes

    By Jerry from the Vineyard
    I am thoroughly frustrated with this application. I thought a boat load of money was spent on this new application? I guess it did not include fixing this massive problem.
  • Worst Initial Experience Ever

    By AlumniDog84
    Purchased a digital magazine subscription today and while the app indicates I have an active subscription it will not let me access magazine content (without purchasing the issue). Tried all the suggested fixes in the FAQ's - this must happen often - to no avail. Now I will cancel subscription. Extremely frustrating.
  • Crash issues fixed?!?

    By Hilk1111
    Nope. An apparent fix lasted all of a week. All articles again randomly crash in a white screen. The user can only go back to the home screen, find the article they were reading again, then try to scroll back to where they left off reading. It may happen 2 or 3 more times when trying to get through a longer article. I had theorized that it was caused by script issues with their ads but who knows. They had seemed to completely fix it for a week or two in December 2017 but it is back to being nearly unusable. I still give 3 stars because of course the content is excellent and impossible to find elsewhere curated all in one place. It is worth some frustration, but this is sisyphean.
  • Needs work

    An improvement but articles crash
  • love NR but app is terrible

    By godzillabass
    i love reading NR, but this app is terrible; crashes every time i use it (on iphone 8). always happens right in the middle of reading an article.
  • What in the world.

    By Sanne47
    I literally donated actual dollars to NR last year because they said they needed to update their platform. What I see is that their app has gotten remarkably worse. Ads have taken over to the point of unreadability. Jonah Goldberg, David French, Kevin Williamson: you want people to read your stuff? Fix this terrible app.
  • Pop-ups

    By AbbaZabbaz
    I don’t know whether National Review realizes it or not, but there are pop-up ads running on their platform propagated by con-artists. The ads purport that the user has “won” a giftcard and should click to claim it. This is an obvious scam and has no business being allowed. I’ll re-install when these malicious ads are officially removed.
  • Can’t read subscribed copy

    By Arfon Chunks
    Subscribed to monthly option. Insists that I have to pay to read. Did a restore iTunes copies, said it was successful but still wanted me to pay again. Did all the options detailed in the FAQ, no good. $2.99 wasted!
