Out of all the features a publication like this should have, I think most readers would expect “Search” to be required. It’s not in the app. Will it be in a future release?
Will often unexpectedly restart and won’t keep my place in an article if I leave the app and come back.
Why are you ignoring the warnings from reviews citing your false need to invade privacy? That’s just ridiculous. Enough with it, you’re a world class magazine, but don’t be Facebook. Delete that unnecessary aspect and I’ll buy a subscription.
Otherwise it's fine.
Very frustrating app. Subscribed to digital only but app won't link to the subscription which was made through the Atlantic site. Not a very nice welcome.
Website accepted a complex 16-character password including the special characters % and & but the iPad app said password invalid. It was only when password was changed on the website to a simple 8-character one without special characters that the app accepted it.
Makes no sense to not have a “search” function on the app?
I love the Atlantic app! I think that it has come so far from a couple of years ago when it was just clunky and almost unusable. The interface feels much cleaner now and it all is laid out better. Even so, however, I can’t give it five stars for the following reasons. First, the search functionality is not available on the iOS app. It’s in the FAQ so developers are aware of this, but I think that is a pressing issue. Even if it was only available to premium subscribers, I would pay to support and gain that functionality. Next, on the topic of search, I tried to click on an Author’s name to see all of the articles he wrote. This brought me to an in-app web browser of the Atlantic online. That’s alright if it can integrate with the app and if clicking on an article would bring me back, but it doesn’t. Last, there’s a slight bug when rotating the article. On iPad, when you rotate from portrait to landscape and back, the article loses its place and you have to start over and find your place again. This is really frustrating for cover stories that are extremely long. Other than that, great app! Like I said, definitely improved!
The Atlantic is awesome and so is this app ❤️
Running this app requires that I give permission to personal data on my phone. The only explanation given is a lengthy “privacy” policy written in dense legalize. Ugh, no thanks. I am a subscriber who just wants a good way to read your content on my phone. You can do that without requiring that I open up my personal data to you.
