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.
Liberal publication non objective. 1/5
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.
By Ezra L.
Thank you, as ever, for your amazing work. An isle of sanity, sobriety, hilarity and piercing humanity. Great app too!
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.
Crashes constantly 1/5
Great content, mediocre app 3/5
App only works in portrait mode, and has a clunky interface for exiting articles. Content is great -- timely and thought-provoking. Allow landscape viewing, and gain at least one star.
Great content, but can't rotate 3/5
The New Yorker app may be the only one on my iPad that will not rotate between portrait and landscape. I can turn my iPad to landscape, but I have to lie down to read the content. Sure, the content is terrific, but display rotation is a basic feature and needs to be implemented right away.
Great app. 1 suggestion. 5/5
The app works great. One suggestion is have the menu option at the top left corner like in the safari version to navigate between different topics.
By paint dress
I find this app frequently AWFUL!! Why? ...because every other day I am told that I have already read my 10 free articles for the month!!
My subscription is already linked (a multiple number of times) and yet I cannot seem to proceed to read. Today is only the 6th. I may be locked out until February.
There must be a way to fix this!! I LOVE to read every article each day; hence, I must relate my frustration here...
I kissa you ring, New Yorker 5/5
By Lifecake devotee
The New Yorker app cleanly delivers one of best periodicals available to my IPhone. Just like the magazine the app is well presented and sleek. The content of the New Yorker? Come on, we all know it's some of the best writing out there. Now more than ever we NEED the New Yorker and this rockstar of an app.
Shaky. Is it iOS or th 3/5
By Lumsden Clan
Love my iPhone and love The New Yorker. But the app is a little shaky. It literally shakes at times. That said, my phone has been a little funky since the last iOS update with the cursor bouncing around. In this app, sometimes content jumps back to the previous article without my prompting it to. And the screen shakes. This does not happen in other apps.
Hoping Apple and the app developer work out these bugs in the next update!
Apple Keychain support?
Horrible customer service, total rip-off 1/5
Says newyorker digital subscription, which I have, will enable the user to use the program, but turns out if you bought your subscription through apple store, then they charge $89.99 per year for this. Doesn't tell you this anywhere. I was so angry, that I wanted to cancel my newyorker subscription altogether, but newyorker so you have to do that through apple, and apple won't refund a partial year subscription, even though I just renewed today. Total scam rip-off, and new yorker has worst telephone customer service I've ever encountered. Am trying to cancel the sub via Amex. Will never subscribe to anything from this company ever again.
Should be ashamed 1/5
I can't believe how this publication attempts to literally empty the pockets of its readers. Your fees are shameful. Instead of trying to help the public in anyway, you have decided to get fat and rich off the working class people too. Enjoy your holidays and happy new year, my your profits be many...
Great UI 5/5
The user interface for this app is great, it's easy to navigate and use. The only complaint I have is that it is sometimes hard to get out of the article you're reading, the back button should be easier to see.
By bells 110
It keeps saying I don't have a subscription no matter how many times I link it! Frustrating as hell!
The Best 5/5
The New Yorker is THE there is.articles excellent. Best jokes
Excellence all around! 5/5
The New Yorker is required reading. The app is excellent, as is the publication.
Limit to bookmarks!!??! 1/5
I can overlook the fact that i signed up online for "instant access", but then was unable to sign in and have access to the app for almost 48 hours(!) because, in 2016, it takes their system at least 24 to 48 hours to receive my order.
But i just found out i have a small limit to how many bookmarks i can keep in app. Between that, and no search function, this is a very, very disappointing and amateurish attempt at an app.
Good concept needs work 2/5
I love the concept. But it is broken in so many ways. This app was clearly on a deadline and released before finished.
You can't magnify images. So cover page jokes can be indecipherable.
'Cartoons at Random" is like the Roach Motel - you start looking through cartoons and there's no way back to other content.
I hate that it doesn't know how to rotate on an iPad. You expect such behavior on inferior iPhone apps, but this app tries to scale to larger screens.
No Search 2/5
Cannot search for articles. Stories begun in the paper version or in a browser can't be resumed in the app as there seems to be no way to find them.
Must read no matter the device 5/5
By Morgan Ward
I find myself reading the New Yorker on my phone because of this app. I usually read it on my laptop or in print. So this is best endorsement I can offer. The content is so compelling I have to read it no matter the device.
Where are my pictures? 4/5
Of course the writing is superb and the iPad is a handy way to read the articles but for some reason on my iPad 3 probably less than half the pictures load. This definitely degrades the experience. As another reviewer commented, a picture can be worth a thousand words. I hope this gets remedied.
Great way for a quick fix 4/5
This app is great for me to have my quick fix to read New Yorker when I'm on the road. Thank you.
Great writing, but where's the graphics? 3/5
It's good to have a way to read updated content from New Yorker writers, but most of the images don't load. On my iPad, and with the New Yorker's excellent published art, that's like missing half the message. Please fix this.
