Version 3.0.1 crashes every time it is opened 1/5
By The Ear Eclectic
It’s an ok app 4/5
My bookmarks disappeared suddenly so I’m not happy with the app right now. I wish there could be like a list of articles to chose from instead of only the “featured” ones.
Bad customer service 1/5
If you email in with any issue from the app they just cut and paste a reply from a script regardless as to whether it addresses your problem or not. In most cases they don’t read what you write. I wish I hadn’t given them my money and given money elsewhere. This is not a problem with other online magazines.
Great App 5/5
I love the cartoons section!
Life got better 5/5
The NYr App gives me enough content to spend an entire day fully stationary & entertained yet allows me the mobility to pee. How did I ever live without this subscription? Thank you...I love you guys 😩
Inaccessible in China 3/5
I can’t access it in China.
Great content, worthless app 1/5
The app is completely unusable. I have the save location setting enable but it doesn’t shave my location. So if I don’t finish an article in one sitting I’m dead meat. Add to that the fact that unlike any e-reader app this puppy has no pagination. Users are forced to scroll through long article instead of using a seamless way to advance in precise increments. I will have to cancel my subscription if I can’t find a reasonable way to read the magazine.
Love the Cartoons 5/5
I am sure the other stuff is fine, but I am just viewing the cartoons. They make my day. The other stuff is just frosting which I’ll get to eventually, maybe.
Awesome update 5/5
Love that you can now access the weekly magazine issues!
Can’t subscribe and can’t read! 1/5
So annoying, the app is so buggy it won’t let me subscribe to the New Yorker today using Apple Pay which it offers, and it won’t let me read the articles I want to read without a subscription. The app keeps asking for a shipping address which I have repeatedly entered.
When I go to the New Yorker web site they won’t help me because I don’t have a subscription and they send me back to Conde Nasty! I have been trying to subscribe off and on for over two years now. How does the New Yorker survive with a public interface like this?
Great App 5/5
By Angie Rocks
Wonderful app! A really great layout, quick and easy to use!
Ads are break TTS accessibility 5/5
Between plaintext ads and now auto play video ads, this app is now unusable trash.
App does not change text size 1/5
My 89 year old mother reads articles on your app everyday. Since the new release, the text size can not be increased (using the settings option is ineffective) and the app is no longer useable for her.
Awesome. Now I can open any article in it! 5/5
Readable, beautiful design, and unparalleled in scope of content. It’s my favorite app.
Sync please 4/5
Some articles appear hear a week or more before the print magazine, which is nice. This can be convenient over downloading an entire magazine. I do wish that as subscribers, the bookmarked articles sync to the account so that I can continue reading on different iDevices.
Ugh. Auto-playing ads. 2/5
It’s always annoyed me that I can’t swipe from the left to go back after reading an article — why not just adopt the standard iOS convention? — but now ads are auto playing with sound as I scroll. The visual distraction of the animation while trying to read is bad enough. Now I have to be sure to have the volume down so I don’t disturb those around me. Make it stop.
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..!
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!
