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.
Fantastic publication. Indispensable for coverage international/domestic issues. Will subscribe until end of time.
It’s common for news and magazines to offer free limited apps that can be upgraded. Foreign Policy allows you to install the app with no indication that you must have an account to use it at all.
The update was long overdue, but FP finally has an app that matches the quality of its content!
“Error: There is no active user for the provided username and password.” Yet I can log in on the website. And my credit card statement has an opinion too. Look, this can happen, which is why I emailed the developer. No response at all – dear FP, maybe you should focus on the website instead of paying someone to make a bad app.
the redesigned app is much appreciated!!!
I am so happy with Foreign Policy. Finally, a place to find insightful reporting on world issues! It is my go-to reading every day.
I rate it 4 stars because the issues and ideas are critical information, but the app can definitely be improved. Make it more like the New York Times, perhaps even allow comments. Improve the app and make it easier for people to like it and subscribe!
