App needs a real table of contents

Please fix the app so it displays a useful table of contents. Headlines without bylines is surely a disservice to your writers as well as your readers.

Great publication terrible app

I regret buying a digital only subscription for my new iPad. My login isn’t recognized on the website, so I guess I’ll need two accounts and subscriptions if I want to access it on my computer? The table of contents view is useless, as another reviewer mentioned, because I don’t know what any of the articles are about or who the authors are. In the reader mode, it removes the block quote typography found in the print/PDF version, so it’s hard to tell when you’re reading an excerpt from the work. Worst of all, it does not support split screen mode on iOS 14, so I can’t take notes while I read an article, which is just ridiculous. It’s easy to copy text, though, so I guess the developers just want me to steal their content wholesale by pasting it into another app so that I can enjoy it the way I’d like. I would send these notes to them before writing a poor review, but since I don’t use the native Apple Mail app, they won’t even let me use their in-app feedback form. Garbage app that looks pretty for casual readers.

but, where are the reviewers’ bios?

the content is of course great. and, the aesthetics of reading in this app are much better than they were years ago, pleasureable even. but, it would be nice to have the short bios of the reviewers (that show up online and in the print edition) available at the top or bottom of each article. cheers!

How bad can an app be?

I am a subscriber but it takes several tries to learn that my existing login/pass does not work. There is no explanation of this. Why would it not work? Why would they build the app assuming that existing subscribers are a minority of users? Does offline mode work well? No

Long may it wave

The NYRB has been a mainstay of culture and intellect in the US for nearly 60 years.

Great writing, garbage app.

The app is garbage. The NYR should change developers. You can’t retrieve a password that was created on another device. “Sorry, but something went wrong.” That’s the notice you get no matter how many times or methods you try. Come on. It’s 2021. This isn’t hard.

Unable to adjust text size

The content is great but it’s difficult to read long articles in small text size. The ability too adjust text size is a bread-and-butter feature in most apps and it shouldn’t be this hard to make it happen.

Love NYRB, great app

The app is functional and beautiful. Displays all that’s needed in easy-to-find ways. Love the PDF function, as a teacher who annotates.

Big disappointment

This is not a user-friendly app.

Vastly improved App

I left NYRB a few years ago because the app was so clunky. Great to see this new version with full accessibility, including a PDF of the magazine, page by page.
