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.

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.
Absolutely Amazing!! 5/5
The New Yorker Today is an amazing app!! I live in California, but I absolutely love The New Yorker!! Before the most recent update, the app actually wouldn't open up to the article and then the section of the article I was at, now that is fixed, so thank you!! I love The new bookmark limit increase! I just wish they would add a dark theme for my weak eyes caused by my disability! Other than that, perfect app and amazing content, definitely worth 5 stars!!
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.
Difficult to continue reading 1/5
By My Check
Great writing for sure but the app is not delivering anything close to the writing level. Bookmark function does not sync between devices and Save My Place option means nothing, you have to look for the place where you left off, a cumbersome task if you don't have time to read an article in one sitting. Digital customer support wasn't even aware of the existence of this option, shame.
You can't rotate the page if you like to read in a horizontal mode which might be ok on the phone but on the iPad it's a burden.
Two issues. First, after downloading the NY Today app, none of the pictures appear with the articles. And, occasionally, a picture is worth a thousand words. Second, after writing this review, I was informed that my nickname was already taken. Then, my review was wiped clean. I needed to type anew.
Good App 5/5
Very stable. I read a lot on the iPhone 6 and this is as good as any.
Of course the Magazene speaks for itself. :)
Great app. I use it every day. It would be nice to be able to zoom. Especially for cartoons.
great, for an app 5/5
I find it hard to get through a long article on a phone screen while actually retaining any of it. I prefer the print edition of the New Yorker. But, for quick browsing, this is a solid, well designed app.
The best way to read the NYer 5/5
I subscribe to the magazine, but this is the best way to read the New Yorker.
Great app! I use it daily.
Now we need a widget! 5/5
The app is wonderful, and to make it even better, please create a widget for the new iPhone iOS 10.2. That'll let us see what's new at a glance right on the lock screen. Here's hoping!
The New Yorker is MAGNIFICENT! 5/5
I have always loved to read the magazine ! Although, I must admit when I was a young girl I really loved the comics and would think about them for some time to try to analyze them like an adult to understand them ! I love the whole collection of stories, essays, articles, memoir, and book reviews , movie reviews , as well as music and art updates and theatrical schedules! All things New York are considered a great measure of what is happening in our country and around the world to me . I do end up spending each week on a Sunday , usually , catching up with my New Yorker . Since it is on my phone now too, I can read it anywhere while I am waiting . It is good reading and not just a wasted magazine filled with advertisements! Sincerely, Dawn Copley
P.S. I forgot to mention my favorite poetry included ! I really enjoy some of the poetry ! We do not often get to enjoy poetry in print by the week ! ❤️🎈
At long last... Fantastic! 5/5
I am so thrilled about this new 'New Yorker Today' app that I was compelled to leave a review as both a kudos to the publisher and to recommend for other readers out there! At long last, this newest iteration of the New Yorker app is easy to navigate, super mobile-friendly, and articles are finally bookmark-able! PLUS, there's a section for cartoons only which is an endless source of delight during my commute or just waiting in line somewhere. I was flipping through the cartoons for nearly 5 minutes straight and it never seemed to end - huzzah!! Keep up the good work @newyorker people! This new app brings me happiness :)
Great articles could have better functionality 3/5
I got this app because it seemed more convenient than the website for getting up to date article. Unlike the website, it doesn't divide up,articles by content (news, culture,etc) only a list of the " most popular".
It would be nice if you could get more variety or search for articles.
As for the reviewer who complained there was a limit to free articles, try subscribing, you shouldn't expect to be provided with great content for free. It's how people make a living.
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 !
Timely and well written 5/5
By Da kine fella
In this day and age of Internet journalism it's refreshing to read the articles in the New Yorker today.
Easy to set up and easy to use. Perfect for those interminable minutes while waiting in the dentist office. As usual the cartoons are great, but their presentation is superb.
Good, but no save place feature 3/5
I like the design of this app, and dang near everything about it, except it is missing one crucial feature. When I exit out of it and restart it, or when the app has been sitting idle and reboots itself it never remembers the place I left off in the article. I have to scroll down each time to find it, which on the longer form articles is a total pain.
Please fix this issue!
Typical New Yorker—all class 4/5
But for the sadly unbalanced ölprovning
Latest version has buggy scrolling 1/5
Latest release "hitches" early into every single scroll movement. Looking forward to a fix.
love love love this 5/5
this is the best place to pass the time. best writers, best access, current and interesting stories, EASY to read and changes all the time. New Yorker has figured it out. Thank you!!
iPad yay!! 5/5
This looks so great on the iPad, amazing stories as usual with breath taking art. I'm a subscriber and the bottom bar disappears now when I scroll in the article that's wonderful
Amazing app... 5/5
...now can you please make a version for the 12.9" iPad?
Great app 5/5
By Ghost Paradigm
A well polished app that matches the subtle and refined design you would expect from The New Yorker.
If I could suggest one design suggestion, it would be to integrate the magazine app into this one. I don't see a reason to have two separate apps to maintain.
Great App 5/5
If you like the magazine, you'll love this app. Stories and their famous cartoons right at your fingertips. Should be on everyone's "must have" app list.
Love it! Thanks New Yorker! 5/5
Great app. Have used it every day since downloading. Love the decent font size on the iPhone version. Clean, easy interface.
Great app version of New Yorker, but bookmarks disappear 2/5
This is a great app. Nice cartoon feature and clean interface, along with the always compelling content you'd expect from the New Yorker. But the technical issue of bookmarks and favorites always disappearing without even accessing them has gotten a point where it's very irritating. I scroll the app, find something I want to come back to later by bookmarking it, and then it's gone a few hours later. So I stopped doing it. Yes I can just bookmark it elsewhere, but this needs to be addressed. After several complaints, it still seems to be in progress. I hope they have a fix soon. That's my only qualm. I am not sure if anyone else is having this issue or if I'm just unlucky.
Need iPad version 3/5
For small screens only.
Good, with one major flaw 3/5
This is basically the iOS version of the New Yorker website, with current content including magazine articles and more. As such, it is a great to have this material available for iOS, especially not having to download full issues as with the magazine app.
The one big problem, however, is that the font size is humongous, too big on an iPhone and incredibly large on an iPad. I haven't yet found a way to decrease the font size, so prefer to go online for this content.
Great magazine. Terrible app 1/5
Never works. Never has. Probably never will
