Great writing, horrible app 2/5
By No words for game
It flashes, it crashes. Such a brilliant group of writers deserve an equally brilliant, or at lease competent group of coders!
Great writing, narrow perspective 2/5
Navel gazing at it's best. I go back and forth on the New Yorker, and yet in the end I always feel dirty and dumber to have given them my attention. They're like that pretty girl in high school. So much beauty, so little brains, such deep insecurity. I know I should have seen through the facade, but I was a kid, I guess. Time to wave goodbye to the NYer and be the adult I am supposed to be. Guys, this is not art. Art isn't hateful and self-important. That's what reviews are for.
Why destroy an otherwise marvelous read with tacky,unwelcome, advertising?
Works great, but ads for subscribers? 3/5
You know what you are getting with the New Yorker, but as a subscriber I would expect the app to be ad-free.
First Rate Publication 5/5
The New Yorker is a first class weekly periodical that is filled with high quality articles and some very interesting stories about the state of our country & the world.
Its in depth reporting is usually spot on, & rarely not of interest. If you had only one publication to read, The New Yorker would hands down be one to choose.
Magazine is great but the app is not! 2/5
I have been subscribing to The New Yorker for decades. It is my favorite magazine by far. But the app has always been terrible and the log-in process has always been circuitous and difficult to manage. I read almost all my periodicals online and this is the only one that I have trouble with. Why doesn't Condé Nast get it together? Their other magazines are a delight in app form. But The New Yorker is a weird pain. Like they don't believe in it and don't put in enough effort as a result. Should be great this many years along and we are out of the "digital is such a novelty and so secondary to our core business" phase. Get it together, New Yorker! This is publishing!
New Yorker 3/5
One of my go-to news sources. Writing is top-notch. Only reason it gets 3 instead of 5 is it offers only a relatively few "top stories." You can find stuff via the search button, but only if you know the right keywords.
Only short selection of articles available in app 1/5
I'm considering ending my NYorker subscription because it is such a hassle to access articles. I'm not sure why the app isn't reflective of their mobile site, where users can browse by section. Only having the top stories and a search bar available make browsing for a read a treasure hunt. Very annoying.
Great reading 5/5
By Intr-national call'g @
Nice to be able to browse online. Thanks NY'r
Works every time 5/5
Apparently other readers feel differently, but I read a lot of New Yorker articles on this app with absolutely no problems. No crashes, and easy to read. The cartoons tear off one by one; I couldn't be happier.
Impossible to sign in 1/5
The submit button after entering the email and password is not doing anything.
Many tries; no success.
Seems to be stuck somewhere in the past, or repeats one headline over and over.
Poor option for subscribers 1/5
A nice imitation in the style of NYTimes daily news brief, but very poor integration for subscribers. Glitchy app doesn't always take passwords and lots of hassle to link accounts. Needs work.
Excellent articles. 5/5
I love to read articles which are not to be found anywhere else.
Very informative articles, educational, and well written.
Refuses to bind subscription to account 1/5
The app itself is ok. The us is a bit backwards reversing iOS standard patterns by putting the back button and share sheet at the bottom of the screen and making them disappear with scrolling. The experience is disorienting at first, and to be honest does more to confuse than to help.
The real issue I have, however, is that after I bought the subscription to NYer Today, the app refuses to bind my subscription to the NYer online account I have. So the promise of having access to the New Yorker magazine app and the website? Gone. If only I could cancel my subscription and get my money back, but unfortunately I can't. Customer service has been profoundly unhelpful as well.
Until the app is fixed, avoid buying the subscription through NYer Today.
Nice addition 5/5
Love the NewYorker Daily. Also thank you for the up-to-date reporting. Very much enjoying reading this material. SW
Daily Content! 5/5
Great magazine, great content. It's difficult to log in, and that should be fixed. No other problems otherwise.
New Yorker 5/5
The best app ever ! I read it daily. Wish it had more content I devour all the articles in one sitting.
No account access 3/5
By Flybaby Jeannie
First, it doesn't matter if you can make the font larger, if it only maximizes at a normal font range, the font style is very thin, and the color is grey. If you need reading glasses, it can still be very difficult to read. At least the app is legible.
My second and equal disappointment is that you can't manage your subscription through the app.
New Yorker magazine 5/5
By Packy 44
Excellent articles & very funny cartoons.
Continues to improve 5/5
Great app, great content
Appreciate the iPad support
Love the app, need a night-mode 4/5
By Joshua G D
I love the app. It's beautifully designed and gives me the best stories from the New Yorker each day. But I often read at night and it's awful on my eyes. I'd love a night mode of white text on a black background.
Best mag, worst app 1/5
By 16 Tons
I've been a subscriber for 30 years. This app is awful -- impossible to sign in. Even with info correct, it leads you from link account to subscribe and back again in endless loop without success. The only thing that could make this worse is also accomplished: SOMETIMES signin DOES work. Maddening.
great, for an app 5/5
I prefer the print edition of the New Yorker. But, for quick browsing, this is a solid, well designed app.
Opportunity or lack thereof to respond to opinion of New Yorker writers 5/5
By Enjoying Retirement
Other publications permit and encourage readers to voice their opinions immediately following
an article. Why doesn't "The New Yorker" ? One sided viewpoints lose credibility. Responders raise issues that give pause. The editorial board and staff do not have a monopoly on facts or virtue. Give readers a forum !
Great bite sized New Yorker 5/5
Live this app. Very simple. Very clean. I can jump right in and read great articles from the New Yorker without getting lost in a sea of ads or pop ups. Stories only. Just the way I want it.
Great writing. Great times reading.
Love the mag. HATE the app 1/5
You'd think TNY would manage to develop a quality app. Without decent digital, I'll not renew my subscription. There are free New Yorker articles on line that are easier to read.
Simple, clear, and coherent. Perfect. 5/5
Exactly what you'd expect from the New Yorker: it's easy to browse through a generous handful of short-to-medium pieces every day, with good support for photos and cartoons. It also includes hyperlinks to other NYer pieces and external pages across the web, which is a thoughtful inclusion from the online edition. It doesn't feel clunky, like the "mobile magazine" edition; it feels more like the web, natural and coherent. It's now my daily read, over and above the regular magazine and website. Highly recommended.
I love all of your work. But we really need a search tool..!
Nice app 4/5
Wonderful writing and app. Just remove ads and tracking for subscribers. I don't have Google following me around when this lands at my house.
No search tool & unable to change size of font 1/5
Material is very good. But no search function and I am unable to change its size.
Wrote twice to their support crew. No answer.
Will cancel soon.
It's too bad their tech team and their customer services departments are so inadequate.
Does anyone at The New Yorker read these reviews?
I ain't alone.
And that's the last feee advice I'm giving to you folks.
p. s. Only wrote the above twice, not the usual seven times as per New Yorker articles.
Huh? There is no Search tool! 1/5
By Tired of retyping this review
There is no Search tool. Can't find the article I was looking for! What's the point if I can't read articles I choose.
Great writing and a smooth experience throughout the app. Cannot recommend highly enough!
New Yorker Rules! 5/5
Mind the fact I'm a devoted reader of The New Yorker for years, but it wasn't easy, and it was quite overpriced, to buy it in Belgrade, Serbia, where I live -- this app is a true gem for all of us who consider reading smart and opinionated articles from high-class journalists mandatory, on a daily basis. Design of the app itself od flawless, interface is neat, and the app is written in such an elegant manner.
Thanks, NewYorkers! Keep on the good work!
Great way to read The NYer 5/5
Wonderful app, easy to use. A night mode would be much appreciated!
Great app! 5/5
Great UI, easy to use, and a great resource for news and comics. Love this app.
Amazing & keeps getting better! 5/5
The NYer Today is an amazing app! I'm a subscriber to the magazine, and this app is my favorite part of the subscription!! The updates keep making it better too!! All I ask for is a dark theme, for I'm disabled, and bright white can hurt my eyes, so I'd love to be able to have a dark theme! Other than that, perfect!! The New Yorker Today has definitely earned my 5 star review!
Great stories 5/5
The New Yorker has the best stories around. The app is simple and gets out of the way to let you read.
Best magazine app 5/5
This is really a superb app. No issues, flows well,
Stand together and laugh together 5/5
Since the initiation of my subscription, I have read aloud many articles from the humor section to friends and family, always warranting a great response. I check the news section daily and am always pleasantly surprised how well my liberal views match the articles. It feels like talking, standing beside and laughing with a friend. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to something that delivers horrible truths in the most beautiful way. It's both reason and remedy. I read everyday.
Not the magazine 1/5
I want to read my subscription on my device not a curated list of "top" stories.
Subscriber for years 5/5
Always great content
Comedy & Clarity 5/5
By Sparky's Mum
This app is great. Well designed, very current and of course full of great writing and cartoons. Recently, especially since 1/20/17, it has provided me with extra clarity and refreshing comedy.
I wish I could zoom in on the cartoons, to see the details in the art and read the extra small type.
Thank you! 5/5
I love the landscape support, thanks very much for adding that feature.
The best way to read The New Yorker 5/5
I love the iPhone version of this app, and now that the iPad version has landscape support it is finally usable to me on the device I prefer to read on. If you subscribe to TNY, this app is a great way to read it.
NY App 1/5
The New Yorker app is frustrating to use. It doesn't register that the newsletter is linked to my subscription so it won't let me read the entire newsletter. It keeps telling me to subscribe. It's hard to find previous issues and there's no search feature to find articles. I found the app of a few years ago to be easy to use. The current one is impossible.
Great content 4/5
By Het Niewsblad
The app itself isn't fancy, but the content is fabulous. When I don't have time to sit down w the full magazine, NYer Today hits the spot.
Great content, awful apps 3/5
For years this magazine has failed considerably to stay competitive in the e-world. Apps are buggy on an I Phone and lack basic features, such as a button to login when it crashes. This necessitates a call to a less than helpful call center where someone tells me to login in again. Circular incompetence!
No search feature? 3/5
No search feature.
Yep. That is my review.
