  • Inconsistent, logs out randomly, jumps around for no reason, so freaking annoying

    By high5ths
    This stupid app makes me really mad. I recently knew I had a long trip coming up, so I opened the app, downloaded a couple issues I hadn’t read, made sure I was logged in… then I get on the plane and the app claims I have no subscription — with no internet, I couldn’t log in, and it wouldn’t let me read the issues. When it does work (sporadically), it’s bad at remembering where you are in an article — you’ll go back to continue reading and find yourself at the very top of the page again, for no reason. Other times, you’ll be reading and suddenly things start jumping around (apparently as ads are loading above and below you). Sometimes the ads even obscure part of the copy. It’s so frustrating to love a magazine so much, and feel like the app is just a mediocre piece of junk.

    Come on seriously
  • Solid App, but Search Needs Overhaul

    By NickMurphy11
    I’ve enjoyed the NY content for some time and the app contains lots of nifty features for people who consume content on their phones, downloading articles, cartoon swiping, audio playbacks and by the issue downloads. However, the only major complaint I have that is a source of major frustration is “search”. It is unintuitive and could use a code rewrite. For example, I have a specific article on “Jim Simons” from 2017 that I want to read and download on my phone. How do I get it? Well, I search for “Jim Simons” and my search results are flooded with “Jim Jordan” references (so search is key-wording on “Jim”, huh ok). The scroll is also quite slow and paginates on only 10 or so results before reloading. So I search by the author’s name DT Max, but now I get all of the author’s articles and also results from articles that contain “Max” as well. Finally, I search by the exact title, “Jim Simons, the numbers king” but I still don’t get the result on the first page. Requiring me to still go through the slow scroll. This is seriously, seriously painful. If I want to look up topics, or authors, or a specific article I actually can’t use the app or I have to use a workaround (like google searching then clicking on the link). Please fix, or at least include filters by author, title, body of text, etc.
  • Bait and Switch

    By Raw.bean
    I signed up for the New Yorker a year ago, and in doing so was promised a free tote bag, mailed out to me in 8-12 weeks. Never got it. Called customer service, was told they’d send one “in 8-12 weeks”…..well, it’s been a year, and I still don’t have one. That, combined with a sub-par app compared to others, and I’m not impressed. Don’t subscribe and expect anything.
  • Bad features

    By hapelle
    If I can’t set dark mode, at least let me read in a web browser? Not possible, really needs basic updates, badly
  • Logging in

    I subscribed and downloaded the app. Won’t let me sign in with my info. Won’t restore my Apple subscription either. I can only access it only via a browser.
  • This app is the worst

    By The worst app X 10
    I keep having to sign in, and then when I want to go to digital content, it says I’m not signed in and it just stays in this loop. Totally aggravating, especially when the subscription is not cheap. I keep my subscription up to date but the app says I’m not a subscriber. As a result, the digi version is pretty worthless. It’s really hard to contact anyone by phone to figure out what the problem is.
  • Needs improved features

    By MM2mpia#
    I agree with Charles Carmichael in his assessment. Tge app has no feature fr reviewing subscription information, particularly renewal info.
  • A lot of info packed into a tiny space, quite well.

    By jwrosenberg
    I have not been one that has been fully converted to reading only digital versions of my favorite magazines. The first one that I switched over from was National Geographic, reason being…. it made the pictures even more spectacular. It took me time to start getting into reading The New Yorker especially on my iPhone and while isn’t perfect, can still be a bit clunky and the screen can still get crowded, but it certainly is improving all the time, and its refreshing to be able to read it on the go, especially when I want to catch up on both current and old articles from previous issues.
  • What Happened to Cartoon Caption contest in the app?

    By Still laoding?
    The New Yorker app has included the cartoon caption contest for many years, but this current version does not. What happened? This contest is a fun diversion, and is greatly missed in the version of the app.
