I am a long time subscriber to The Atlantic. I still get the print magazine but honestly do most of my Atlantic reading electronically. I was really excited when I first got the app, but have only been frustrated since. First, it is the most unintuitive app I think I have used in a long time. Having to dig 3 to 4 steps down to even find the magazine edition. It shouldn’t be an expedition to find the most recent magazine. I understand having the feed to read popular articles, but the joy of The Atlantic is “paging” through the magazine to read different articles that I wouldn’t typically click on in a news feed. Second, SEARCH. How can there not be a search function??? Search is one of the most useful reasons to read newspapers and magazines in electronic format. Please, please, please add search function. Third, Font Size. I can’t be alone in the demographics of The Atlantic subscribers in needing glasses or larger fonts to read comfortably. This is probably the second biggest reason to read content electronically instead of the print version. Please add the ability to adjust the size of the font. I still enjoy The Atlantic and think it is one of the best sources for in depth analysis of current events and culture. However, until these issues are addressed I will probably continue to link to The Atlantic on the internet instead of through the app.
No search function that I can find. How is this possible?
First. No Search? Are you kidding? I start to read an article that’s served up to me by The Atlantic in my Facebook feed. I invariably get sidetracked by kids, dog, cat, email who knows what...and I’ve lost the link. Head to the Atlantic app to search...and can’t. Hard to believe this function isn’t primary here. Also, I’d like to get off of Facebook as quickly as possible. New York Times links have an “Open in New York Times app” option from Facebook. The Atlantic should have the same..
The Atlantic consistently contains excellent journalism; I still subscribe to the paper magazine. But the new(ish) app is much less functional than the old one: there’s no search function! I can’t find the last article by Graeme Wood: it’s down the memory hole. I end up logging in through my browser—the web design is great, and much more accessible. Both the iPad and iPhone apps have way too much blank space, and I hate the big “Good morning!/afternoon!/evening!”opening page. Just show me the top stories (with authors’ names, please!), and I’ll get reading. I don’t like the huge numbers and pictures that squeeze out the blurbs.
Consistently insightful, patient and skilled reporting makes The Atlantic the premiere journalism in our culture. Now, when can we get **search** in the application. It’s 2021 folks. /sigh
I like the magazine, but the lack of search capability turns the Atlantic into yet another endless scroll social medium. Is that really how the magazine wants to present itself?
I love The Atlantic and i'm a subscriber, but a journalism app with no search function ? Really?
Love the Atlantic, but I think it could use 3 features: 1) ***a search function*** 2) a way to click on the author’s name in an article and see what else they’ve written 3) a way to forward an article from a link into the app, so if an article is texted to me I can read it or save it in the app Otherwise a great app with great articles.
The magazine is great. The writing is top notch. But if I’m looking for a previously read piece and I didn’t “save” it, I’m out of luck.
The app itself is beautiful. Reading stories on it is a breeze. And the stories are so consistently high quality; I subscribe to the New York Times, Washington Post, New Yorker, and more and the only rival to the Atlantic is the New Yorker — but I think the Atlantic beats it out for sheer quality. But I need to be able to search for stories, and I need to be able to access a story in my web browser that then lets me open it in the app. Right now it’s just a pretty place to browse the current popular stories. It could be so much more.
