You have to get over the guilt trip of not reading every article.........just give yourself credit for reading a whole book when you do finish one of three, and hve the issue around for when you do have time.......definitely one of the finest and most enjoyable resources in print and with the audible spin-offs: New Yorker fiction in which one author reads another authors story from the archive and they discuss.......or the political scene, or New Yorker poetry.......all gifts “may they live long and prosper...
I read on my iPad, and sometimes in attempting to scroll down to continue reading an article the app will interpret my thumb’s action as wanting to flip to the next article. Suddenly the text changes and I’m thrust forward to an unrelated text. Flipping back, I am unfortunately NOT returned to the vicinity of the last bit I was reading. No! I am forcefully landed at the TOP of the article and I have to very carefully scroll down again to find my place.
the app used to keep your place: now it goes back to the top, drives me insane! if you turn the page by mistake you’re very sad when you turn back: you have to scroll down, which in a long article is really a drag. and why no dark mode? and more choices for font sizes would be helpful, too. it feels like on the phone the choices are small or gigantic: moderate would be nice! and i cant get cartoons to zoom on the phone: it works well on the iPad, but badly implemented for phone. the new yorker is my bedtime and insomnia reading: i beg you to fix these things on the iphone! i’m dependent on you!!!
The only really annoying thing is the tiny arrow to advance cartoons. I am never sure if I am on the last one or didn’t see the little arrow.
The speed of download, ease of use, and other aspects are much improved to the point where I prefer it to reading hard copy.
New Yorker content but lousy app.
It’s not reasonable to expect readers to read through the entire issue to determine what the issue includes. Why not give us a table of contents as in the print edition?
This is the 3rd week that the New Yorker digital didn’t show up on Monday; and the 2nd week that the print edition never showed up.
So many vexations - where is the winning caption? How to make cartoons or images bigger? How to hold on to your place even as you Chandigarh font size.
