It’s a great app and I’ve been reading FP on and off since the 90’s. I just got an email they are bumping me from 60 for a year to 199….It’s good but not enough content to justify a tripling of my cost.
The app is free but you must pay for access to any content.
The fact this app is not designed to be full screen on iPad blows my mind.
I love this publication. But the app is frustratingly sparse. Articles I find in Twitter don’t appear in the app where I can save for reading later. The search function doesn’t yield the name of an author who published an article today. It doesn’t yield the subject of that article in anything written after 2018. When I open the app with multiple notification badges, it doesn’t indicate which articles triggered the alert. Every menu lists the same four uninformative options containing the same content. Must do better.
Great content but please consider supporting dark mode. Bright background hurts my eyes.
I love the content of the Foreign Policy but it would be great to access Power Maps from the app.
But not for us younger folks! The UI is MASSIVE and only fits two stories on a screen, which is especially bad on my iPhone 11. I feel like it treats me like I’m blind. Please give us the option to make things smaller and fit more on a page. All the buttons are awkwardly sized and make me think it’s a poor quality port from older, smaller iPhones. The bottom navigation bar is useless. Feels like it was done by a single programmer quickly, rather than by a professional. This review is for the APP not the content.
Quality content but the app needs work - especially for how expensive a subscription is. Its not terrible or unstable but it feels old and sluggish with a poor use of screen real estate, barely passing for a typical news app from 5 years ago. Now that that the bar for what passes as a solid news app is higher (looking at you The Economist, WSJ, NYT, Atlantic, Guardian, etc) I would hope they update their UI/UX to keep with the times. I find myself doing most of my FP reading on their website because of this.

Haven't yet validated the quality of the content yet; as a fiscal conservative, I'm politically neutral and prefer to have my news unbiased, so I came here seeking an alternative to the WP and WSJ; so I'm a new subscriber on that front... BUT, I can definitely say, the quality of the app is superior for sure. The only thing that would be nice, is to be able to highlight certain aspects of an article, like I used to be able to in other apps with subscriptions at this high of a price point. It's not cheap to subscribe at approx $27/mo USD, esp if you go through iTunes, but fair news and a solid app without a crap-ton of ads is more important to me than Starbucks; so hey, to each - their own.
