Subscribing to The New Yorker magazine only provides a small amount of the content actually generated. This shows up in the daily email feeds. I found the app allows me to conveniently access and store the content for later reading. Moreover, if there’s an article I particularly like, I’m able to save it. I’ve had no problems with app functionality.
...Though being a Deep South Guy I ignore their political comments (Hope I don’t get edited out for saying I love what President Trump has been doing which I...and many unreported others...feel like has been much needed), but the New Yorker each week has GREAT fresh stories and stupendous Cartoons. I spend MANY very enjoyable hours each week with The New Yorker !!! GREAT magazine !!!
Why would it be to the magazine’s advantage to block the ability to print directly from the mobile app? Tiresome!
Position in article is not saved when the app is closed
This place is a fraud. I sign up and might get an article or two and then no more.
The app is fine when I’ve dedicated myself to using it. However, it promises to remember where I last left off, and it never does. Even if I don’t fully quit the app, if I close it briefly – for example, to quickly answer an incoming text before reverting back – when I open the app again, I’ve not only lost my place in the article I was reading, but I’ve lost the article altogether and am taken back to the front page. So I have to type the article title back in the search bar and then scroll past multiple paragraphs to get back to where I was just seconds prior. Pretty annoying, and on bad days or when I’m reading a good article, infuriating.
The app Doesn’t save my place in the article when I access other apps and come back. Very lame for a publication.
Popping up full screen video ads is not ever ok. Having animated ads in a reading app is not ok. Not saving place in articles is annoying. (Also probably because of ads - otherwise not clear why page needs to be reloaded every time I switch back to the app. No other reading app I have has this problem.) Besides that it’s good. But this is enough to turn me off from reading. Today’s pop up was the final straw. I’m switching to the browser. I’m a customer. I pay. I love the content. You are undercharging for it. So charge more instead of spoiling my reading experience.
I did not purchase a subscription to the New Yorker in order to have video ads shoved in my face mid-article.
I love the material that The New Yorker presents and generally I find that the app presents it quite well. But, many of the pages have animated ads that are very distracting and cheapen what is otherwise a very pleasing experience.
