I would subscribe just for the editing. No publication has read editors anymore, except the New Yorker.
The app cannot hold your place in any article, and the slightest move will send you off page so you have to start at the beginning which is especially annoying in long articles.
Great app. Great content
So I’ve been a subscriber for 20 years. I love Borowitz and am looking online for his recent article about Queen Elizabeth and her comments about the interview, cannot find it. I’ve already given away my print copies and I know this particular article was in a recent issue.
Love that most of the articles are available as audio. Just wish that the Audm embed functioned similar to podcasts, so they could be played without having the phone open—I have to constantly re-activate my screen, because it has an auto-lock, which also drains the battery—and at multiple speeds.
What New Yorker’s digital designers have done so brilliantly is to give us the pleasures we experience reading the physical magazine by replicating its every feature while also adding the interactive links. Truly brilliant.
The New Yorker has long been the best weekly mag. Its online version gets better and better. My favorite magazine by far. I am probably a rare reader who always goes for the poems and short stories. Excellent reporting. Of course great cartoons. Adapting better than any other mag to internet.
The issues pile up.
