Destroyed by their own Hate 1/5
Sadly this once esteemed news organization is being destroyed by its own hatred. Journalism students in future generations will read about Newsweek in their digital textbooks. Really sad to watch them self-destruct.
Don't download this app 1/5
There's a reporter named Alex something that either is too lazy or doesn't care about being accurate in his articles. Of course Newsweek won't fire him because his lies fit in with their liberal propaganda.
Keeps crashing 1/5
By John cooperfhgfurfh
Terrible app. Slow. Articles have typos. Uses up my data. Images won't load properly.
Very good 4/5
This app works well for me but I haven't used it extensively. I just gave it four stars for that reason. It may well rate five.
Excellent app 1/5
No problems with the app, fast download and nice navigation of the magazine. Excellent magazine content as well.
Taken over by Fake News 1/5
I used to respect this publication but since the recent presidential race, the quality has truly gone downhill. Everything is a hit piece which reflects the limited intelligence of the writers.
Imagine if Americans actually believed this garbage.
Good but not Great 3/5
This app is good in that it is reliable and is a convenient way for me to read Newsweek.
The reason I can't say that it is great is because you can't zoom in on photos or text. That makes it hard on my eyes and fatiguing to read.
Um, no thanks 3/5
Not sure why I would pay $4.99 per issue of a condensed Newsweek in tiny app form, when I can get all this news for free everywhere else. Apparently Newsweek is still clinging to the old world.
Worse app 1/5
I've paid my subscription, I set up my account ID and password, and now they won't accept my ID/PW,. The PW reset feature doesn't work. I've done the reset process 20 times - they are supposed to send reset instructions to my email. They have not sent a single reset email.
I haven't seen an app this bad in over 10 years.
Decent app with one major flaw 3/5
By Nick Anderegg
The "share" functionality of the app doesn't work even remotely correctly. If I want to share an article with someone, I have to go to the Newsweek website and find the link there. If I were able to share articles normally, this app would definitely have 5 stars
Locks up my phone consistently. So frustrating
Love the convenience 4/5
This is a great app! It navigates thru the pages very well. I love the convenience of having an app that really works! You can go back to previous copies-which is a bonus for me!
Great app for reliable news source 4/5
It took me just a short while to navigate this new Newsweek app and now I really like it. There are quick links from the table of contents to quickly take you to the articles you want to read. I've always enjoyed Newsweek as a reliable news source.
Excellent app. Convenient access to lots of important and insightful news.
Great articles 5/5
By Upper East Side Mike
I love reading Newsweek's articles. Especially all the articles about the candidates.
Update doesn't work 1/5
By Dallas Laux
Since doing the update I now can not get my new issue
Great magazine 5/5
Really love that I can read it on my phone. Good visuals.
Don't download DON'T SUBSCRIBE 1/5
last week through the app for an electronic only subscription. Was able to download one issue. Now app wants me to sign in again. Unfortunately, app not letting me sign in. NO HELP from Newsweek, app developer or iTunes.
Am now stuck with (about) $25 annual subscription with auto renewal next year.
All I want is to CANCEL this Newsweek subscription. And get my money back.
Worst comes to worst, (well in advance) I will make sure there is no credit card on file and no money sitting in my iTunes account, so I can't be ripped off next year.
Great app 5/5
By Husam Altaee
I like it really great app
They first had my interest, now they have my attention 5/5
The reading experience is quite sublime, like a fine wine on a crisp autumn evening... The content, as thought provoking as the eternal debate of choosing which superpower you would choose between teleportation and invisibility. The person that developed the app undoubtedly has an enhanced sense of how to invoke aesthetic pleasure. Download this app if you would like a shotgun blast of knowledge to the face. Enjoy.
Bob the frog 2/5
By Bob Doyle
Very disappointed there is no Dictionary when I touch a word I have to leave the magazine to find a Dictionary I've always enjoyed Newsweek but I like reading on the iPad because of the Dictionary feature.
Totally love reading the latest news and the content inside is A+
Loved it!! 5/5
By Rhody Deniz
I have been using this app for couple weeks and so far I loved it. It is easy to navigate between pages and articles.
Easy to use app, not innovative. Good articles.
functional and beautiful 5/5
I love the layout and functionality of the app. i think one of my favorite features is the progress bar to let you know how much is left at top. also i appreciate it always remembers my last location so its easy to pick up where i left off
Cannot enlarge typeface 3/5
Reading Newsweek on my iPad mini the font is too small to read comfortably. This may preclude my subscribing to the magazine.
Newsweek iPad app is totally worthless 1/5
By Yukon Charlie
You obtain the app, subscribe to Newsweek, they send frequent tantalizing article lists by email, and then do not allow you to sign in to read the articles, i.e., the "sign in" does not respond on the iPad. I have waited for over a month since subscribing, and still no go. I can read the magazine on my laptop, but the iPad app is dead.
News Week 5/5
So far… So good…
Landscape Mode please! 3/5
By Karen C Pharm.D
Good magazine; app could use some work.
Horrible APP 1/5
Why do many businesses continue to release products before they are tested. This APP is one of the most bug worthy applications I have ever downloaded and used. On the second issue I downloaded the APP Crashed. I was unable to do anything to the APP. I could not swipe and move pages. I could not find the, already difficult to find home page.I could not even finish the already downloaded previous weeks articles. “ Nothing”
Now I need to fight Apple for my money back. The 1 edition of the magazine I was able to download but only read half! Maybe I will receive half of my $4.99?????
This is a great News magazine! Horrible technology.
Love the magazine - hate the app 4/5
By Maria Briscese
I've been a Newsweek subscriber for 20 years & my current subscription expires in 2017. When Newsweek stopped the print edition, my hope was the app &/or customer service would improve. I have been able to download a magazine for weeks. I've yet to be able to speak to someone or even get an email from someone addressing the problem I am having.
I want my $25 back! 1/5
By Jim NY
I have subscribed to many magazines through iPad. I cannot get this one to work. I followed all the instructions under the frequently asked questions and I cannot get it to work.
Good App 5/5
By Irish Jen
I'm a new user, but app seems to work well.
Good magazine 5/5
By Desert lily 13
A new subscriber, I have only read a few issues, have had a good experience, would recommend future subscribers.
John Worsley 2/5
Good magazine, improved app, but still not completely fixed. About every second or third time I try to access the current issue, I have to delete the app and re-load it. At least it remembers my subscription now. Also have to delete and re-load the app if I haven't finished the current issue and tell it "not now" when notified of a new issue. Occasionally I can bring up the Library and select a different issue, but mostly not. When I am ready for the new issue, it appears on the Newstand but clicking on it takes me back to the previous one.
Great App Experience 5/5
Really great app, easy to navigate around the fantastic content and super user friendly.
Great app 5/5
There are some things other fancier do better but at the end of the day it's about the content. Excellent content here. World class journalism. Great app to boot
Newsweek is back! 5/5
By Concert Road-dog
The return of what was once one of the main sources of news that mattered for millions of people. In depth, thoughtful, balanced reporting instead of sound bites that do not leave the consumer any more educated than they were before they read it. A well informed middle class is indispensable for a world or nation to be nimble enough to adapt and triumph over the adversities and problems that will only increase in this rapidly changing world.
Digital Access is Pathetic 1/5
By Had enough !!
I've subscribed to Newsweek for over 20 years. The hard copy delivered to my house is still great, however the problems with digital access are so numerous that I cannot believe they are trying to market it.
Love it! 4/5
Easily the best magazine app I have on iOS....
Going green is the best thing that ever happened to News Week.
I am delighted that leaving the app no longer results in the magazine being "closed". Continuing from where one left off is a must. Previously, reading Newsweek was an inconvenience.
Reluctant 1 Star 1/5
By Asa Pittman
I purchased the app through iTunes in Sep 2014. It worked. The end of the year I could not sign in. I was advised by Newsweek that I would have to contact iTunes. Newsweek app would not recognize my user/ID to sign in. Just asked iTunes to process refund. Sorry. Loved the magazine. Hate the app. Hate it. Have to rate it to send the review.
$25 for nothing 1/5
Can't log in. Says my email address cannot be found. Probably because I bought it through the Apple store and never signed up with an emailed. Paid for an entire year and can't read anything I paid for. Thank goodness iTunes sent me an email saying the auto renew was about to happen. Tried again, still can't get logged in. There is ZERO customer support. I tried to contact them and couldn't get a person - a message said that if I signed up for the digital version I had to solve this digitally. On my own again - guess I'll look for a news source with a good app.
By Mr. Lane Lewis
Really great articles really bad app. I am a very tech savvy person but apparently I need a second college degree to figure out how to navigate this application. So frustrating I gave up. I will likely discontinue my subscription even though I've been a subscriber since day one.
Too Page Oriented 3/5
I had mixed feelings about the old Newsweek app. Ultimately, I decided it was OK, even with its shortcomings.
The new app has some nice features: a reasonable index, remembers last read page, better captions, marks page progress.
My major problems are that navigation is limited to individual pages and inability to go to a landscape view.
I like gestural scrolling. It's natural for tablets.
I realize that landscape viewing would be tough to do dynamically. Could be modal. Makes reading during breakfast much easier.
New to the app 4/5
I recently download the new application concurrent with a new subscription. I have one issue with the app after a week, not all content orients to my iPad position. I have not experienced any issues reported by other users. If any issues arise with continued use, I will update my review.
Poor app 1/5
1.On cannot read horizontally 2.Some articles cannot be magnified for a better read. Just a poor poor App. Pathetic
Repeatedly Loses Account 2/5
I have had this App through multiple iterations, originally from Newsweek and now through iTunes and Newsstand. Multiple times, including currently, the app has lost my account. I am signed out and cannot download new issues. Things I have had to do before, such as "restore purchases", have not helped.
I was excited with the latest upgrade in October, because the app looked much better. I could actually get to all of the articles, which I could not previously.
If they cannot resolve their technical issues, I will no longer renew my subscription.
By Pierre LLL
Absolutely horrible. Half the time the issues don't even get delivered. Haven't gotten on in 3 weeks, in fact. Customer service never responds either.
Oh, the part where they take your money works just fine, always.
