Beautiful app and easy to use once you practice a bit. The only downside is not being able to delete old issues to save storage space. The “delete after X months” feature doesn’t appear to work on any of my - admittedly, not new - devices.
The app is currently stuck on the inside cover photo of the most recent issue and I can’t get to the content. I don’t think anyone designing digital media at Condé Nast actually reads magazines in any format or they would not persist in making it more difficult and unpleasant to read their products. Like AD which recently launched, then corrected an unfortunate redo of their digital app, vanity Fair is one if the better magazines to read on an iPad. Better than print in my view. That is until they start “improving” the apps and failing repeatedly to make anything better.
I find it hard to navigate the app. When want to browse through the magazine, I can’t proceed past the magazine cover. Help! What and I doing wrong?
Repeat. Can’t navigate or go beyond cover page.
Love the content, but it’s easier to read from Apple News with the font size set larger. This feature should be added to the app.
Clunky interface. No landscape mode. No onscreen icon for font size. Thumbnails are huge. The New Yorker’s app is perfectly adequate, so I don’t understand why (1) why CondeNast created a separate app interface for VF, and (2) this interface wasn’t run by a UX person—easily accessible font scaling and landscape are such basic readability functions.
I have been reading VF for about ten years. I don’t appreciate changes happened since the Editor in chief left and a new one has started. The content has become very politicized, and thus biased. I’d prefer more neutrality. The point taken, it does not need to be repeated hundreds of times. If I needed that much politics, I’d subscribe to Time magazine rather.
It’s kind of useless
App is not great on iPad. Many times the first page of an article is an oversized photo. The formatting/sizing of the photo makes it difficult to move past and into the actual article. Also it only allows vertical viewing which is limiting.
It’s awful! Trying to navigate your pages. I’m going to cancel my subscription as soon as I get to my laptop. Bizarre that anyone there thinks this is good design -& in this day and age!
