I have to restore purchases continuously but even that does not allow me to read articles most of the time.
The old app has much greater functionality
Please fix this ... still have problems acceding articles despite being a subscriber
I love this magazine but I can’t get the app to work. I log in, go to read an article and it wants me to log in. Horrible.
Scrolling is messed up
Reloads pages so often that you can’t finish an article.
National Review is my favorite website hands-down for its thoughtful and thought-provoking content. But the app is terrible. For some reason, it kicks me out of an article I’m reading and sends me back to the menu of articles. This is a consistent problem and has been happening for months. Another problem with the app is that it inconsistently won’t allow me to view NR Plus articles, even though I am a subscriber and am logged in. I have tried emailing app support but that was frustrating as well and the problem hasn’t been resolved.
There is no other place on the web to get such intelligent thoughtful analysis of the both the issues of the day and on culture and philosophy. The mobile app design seems a bit outdated compared to the website, but this is a must have for the thinkers out there.
Regardless of what you think of the content on The National Review, it is hard to get past the frustratingly clunky app. It takes forever to load. It is not stable. Even though I have an annual subscription, it always asks me to subscribe. The only way I have found to clear the subscription add is to attempt to resubscribe. Only to have it remind me that I am already subscribed.
The content of National Review is definitely first class. However, this is diminished by the poor and inconsistent layout of the app, and more so by the buggy interface. Clearly, programmers and designers were not selected with the same consideration as the writers and editors. The worst aspect is the app’s habit of resetting itself. This seems to occur approximately once every 10-15 minutes, and necessitates relocating both the article and the place within article to resume reading.
