Even though we subscribe, I get you advertise. But recently, there have been these JARRING, fullscreen adds that totally disrupt my reading experience. WHY. This is frustrating enough to unsubscribe.
The ads are super distracting when trying to read an article. There’s also random full screen video ads, and on top of that it’s way too easy to click them when scrolling. I pay for a subscription, stop nickel and diming me with these when they degrade the user experience so much.
It is abusive to clutter up a phone or tablet with multiple issues. My solution is to trash the app and the reinstall it. The old app enabled downloading entire issues several years ago when desired and then getting rid of them. This functionality has been lost.
2out of 3+articles crash the app. If it wasn’t broke you shouldn’t have updated. I’m back to the website. Update your tech dept.
The new app is erratic and buggy. Doesn’t even show the latest issue when you open it. Forgets where you are in the article if you leave it and try to come back. Very disappointing.
As a long time subscriber, I am very disappointed to see The New Yorker not taking its ability to be an online readable publication. I have tried a few times to link my hard copy subscription to the online app and cannot make it work. I was hoping their IT dept might have fixed the issue, but it is where it was a few years ago.
It opens briefly, then closes. Worked fine until today.
The content is nonpareil. The app is rinky dink. For instance: I have a digital subscription but I also look at The New Yorker Today and they don’t speak to one another. if I click on something in NY’er Today that refers to an article only—at that time—available in the downloaded issues, I have to sign in again. Or, I’m warned that I’ve run out of bookmarks but there’s no way to decide which I’d be willing to forfeit, I’m merely told I’ll lose the oldest. When I sign in, sometimes it recognizes me, sometimes it doesn’t. I could go on. For a subscription this expensive, surely the online material should be easier to access. But the content—wonderful.
The new version • doesn't keep my place in an article. • has lost the Contributors section. • doesn't report the winner of the caption contest. So there's work to be done. While they're at it, I hope the coders will refine "bookmarks" to mark not only articles but locations within articles.
Just another political joke. Very disappointing.
