One of the best publications out there. 5/5
Absolutely outstanding coverage of the issues. I love that they're able to cover all of the sides of a story fairly.
Love the updates 5/5

Love the updates
Thoughtful and Provocative 5/5
Thoughtful and provocative aggregation of weekly news.
Like the mag as well as paper edition 5/5
I've read both the e-version and the paper magazine. I find that I lean towards the e-mag because of convenience and the ability to expand pix and maps. The content is unbiased and first rate. I only read a few mags each month, and this is one that provides info on a broad range of topics.
Great Magazine 5/5
To the point
Opinions clearly identified
Can quickly read the items of interest to me
Can check the references from the articles if I want more detail or improve my understanding of the subject.
Godlilocks of News 5/5
Great succinct news with a fresh new twist. I don't have 3-4hrs to read Wash Post but I want more than just the headlines from Google News - The Week is the Goldilocks of news.
Excellent ...other than political coverage 3/5
The non-political news coverage is good, but the political coverage (selection and presentation) is left-leaning and preachy in places. Unnecessarily, I might add. Good product otherwise.
Great information 5/5
I like the reviews and opinions. The magazine is much easier to read than the app.
Good but could be even better... 3/5
The freezing nature of past versions have been fixed (thankfully) but the most annoying thing at the moment is the lack of ability to bookmark where you are in an issue when you leave the app while reading an issue. It is annoying to have to start from scratch each time you read and have to remember where you are. The app used to have this feature so it must of been removed an update or two ago. Please bring this back!!! Thanks.
Boy, do I sound smart now! 5/5
After reading The Week, I can offer a little something to every conversation, and ask good questions. TaDa!
Well done 5/5
Better than most magazine apps
The Week 4/5
By I pixel
I have enjoyed reading the week for years. I have not had trouble with the app. Another reviewer mentioned that those having trouble with the app may have gotten the subscription on I- Tunes. I like to be able to get such a broad spectrum of news from one source. I like the fact that I can use the app. when my husband is reading the print copy. We do not have to wait for each other to finish!
Great mag! 5/5
Succinctly covers important, current issues from various points of view, worldwide.
Also includes a bit of humor and other entertaining topics.
My favorite weekly mag by far!
Very good. Lots of information
Great magazine that truly hits all topics. 5/5
I've subscribed to The Week for some time. It provides various views--- conservative, moderate and liberal. Additionally, the editor's section each week provides insight and reflection on our society. I like that there are many topics and with limited time that helps me catch up on the many areas of importance in today's world.
An excellent summary newsletter. 5/5
The app is excellent in presenting an excellent summary reporting of the week's news sources. The range of reporting is balanced, from Breitbart to the New York Times. The reporting of news editorials and "good" and "bad" news makes it a very useful entry point into a broad range of breaking, boiling, or just interesting stories. I really enjoy it!
Simple layout in a feature-creep era 5/5
By Weaponized Urine
Great content with no frills; WYSIWYG.
THE news magazine 5/5
Via app or snail mail, The Week is the most efficient way to stay informed. News from the real world outside the bubble.
Info at my fingertips 5/5
I find this app very useful for times when I'm waiting for my wife while she is shopping : )
Great magazine, terrible, unstable, app.
please fix the app 1/5
By very unhappy subscriber
Love the magazine; hate the app. No longer recalls last page. It is a pain to read the magazine now. This problem started with the last app upgrade approximately 6 weeks ago. I continue to delete and re-add the app every week, but this issue has still not been fixed.
Love the content and format of the magazine, and the app delivers with snappy journalism and a sleek UI.
Not working with iPad mini 1/5
I am a long-time subscriber with multiple devices. Love the magazine but it is no longer loading on my two iPad minis. Still loading on my newer full-size iPad. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!
Best weekly for global and national news. 5/5
The Week allows me to catch up on all the news and to get some information about dissenting/different views about global and national events. The weekly doesn't overwhelm while providing necessary facts/information.
The crossword puzzles are an added bonus.
Great news magazine 4/5
By The hex bug
I think this is a great magazine. Well organized and even handed. Allows me to cover the weekly waterfront quickly and with good depth. Takes the place of several weekly news journals.
The Week 5/5
Great app - variety of opinions-also like that there are no ads- hope that continues
No longer recalls last page 5/5
By SA reader, once.
Quite annoying that app no longer recalls last page.
Surprisingly great magazine app 4/5
Having tried other magazine apps, this one is very impressive. The layout of the articles is very pleasing and the lack of advertisements is a MASSIVE plus.
However, It is a bit too easy to scroll left and right between pages. For example, sometimes when I am trying to scroll down to read an article, the page will scroll left or right instead, moving to a different article. It would be great if there were more "stickiness" while scrolling down on the current article to prevent the article from changing. I'm hoping that this makes sense and is something that could potentially be addressed to make the usability even better.
Does not remember last page. 3/5
Please, please, please fix the issue that the App remembers where I left off. Each time I restart I have to browse to find where I stopped reading.
Place not remembered 1/5
Love The Week and generally the app is fine. The most recent update does not remember your place and boots you back to table contents every time you open. Very aggravating.
Best News App. Available 5/5
By Ken daswall
I have subscribed in the past to Newsweek and Time and was very disappointed with lack of current news and only essays written on current news feeds.
The Week is non- objective and focuses on the real headlines
Twice the view in half the time 5/5
This magazine does with many aspire to but few achieve: offers a broad spectrum of ideas in a concise, intelligent, insightful method. It informs well maintaining editorial integrity to present both sides of the spectrum. It for you are looking for more ammunition, to simply drink more Kool-Aid, pick another stand.
Latest version is a step backwards 5/5
New version does not remember last read position. Previous version did. Why the change? The lost functionality makes for a lot of wasted time. I hope it is fixed soon.
Half step forward three steps back 2/5
No clue what was wrong with the previous way of downloading content but the latest version no longer remembers your reading location. That's not acceptable!! Please fix! ASAP!
New version doesn't remember your place 3/5
I usually stick to the iPad version since the iPhone version doesn't remember your place. With the latest update, the iPad forgets where you are now too. Frustrating.
Great news magazine, great app 5/5
I've been reading The Week just about cover to cover for years now, and the app makes it easier to read on the run, on my iPhone. I like it!
By Stone E Countenance
An excellent summary each week.
The best source of news. Just one dollar per week.
Love it 5/5

Good quick read 5/5
By The Zagman
Concise, humorous, on the spot.
Love this app! 5/5
I've been reading The Week since it was in press years ago. Love that it has move with the times to mobile.
App good, service unreliable 3/5
The app is one of the quicker to navigate magazine apps I have. Well done. However, several times in the last two months I have unable to download new issues due to problems with their servers which lar for a few days at a time (I know this because I can't download new issues [it just hangs] or log in with my credentials). Unreliable service.
Wonderful source of concise summary of what's happening in the world! 5/5
Look forward to it each week!
All the news that's fit to print 5/5
A good way to get the news from different points of view in an attractive readable format.
Excellent News forum 5/5
By PAPA 44
Excellent source of news from all over the world and with different political view points.
Worth every cent! 5/5
Not only is this a great way to get a condensed view of what the media and the public are thinking about world events in both the USA and throughout Europe, it's an easy and attractive read. I appreciate the objectivity and the sense of humor, too. Keep it up!
Great Magazine 5/5
By Rated poor
Salient parts of news articles and issues succinctly written. Love to get the view points from the conservative right and liberal left as well as the moderate view. I feel more appraised of issues after having read the Week. I prefer reading the magazine on my iPad however I miss the crossword puzzle that comes with the printed edition.
The BEST! 5/5
Clear and concise reporting, uncolored by million dollar advertisers and PAC's...I read it faithfully, and have given subscriptions as gifts, that become the best, most appreciated gifts of the year!
