The new app update is much more user friendly to navigate through the articles. Features are improving. Better Table of Contents. It returns you to the last article read when you reopen the app. Also, the developers are great at quickly answering emails and taking care of any issues you may have with downloading or signing on. Keep up the good work! As usual, content is awesome.
Once again the people who write the app have completely ruined it and made it unusable. I am a print/digital subscriber and I am completely locked out from the app. I cannot read this weeks digital issue. This is not the first time this has happened. I enjoy the magazine but I will seriously consider not renewing due to frustration of dealing with the iPad app.
At first glance, seems much more polished and easier to use than the previous version. Text is usually selectable, and it didn’t lose my place when I closed the app. Two great improvements. The library and account navigation between magazines actually make a little sense now. They obviously got better user interface designers to fix this version.
Latest app update is terrible - long load times for each page turn, blank pages, etc... Have been a reader for >12 years and faithfully read it every Sunday morning, but waking up to this app update was incredibly disappointing!
About once a year The Week decides to do an update that crashes everything. The new version will not allow me to sign in with my email address and when I try to reset my password, no matter what I put in it always comes up with the single word “error“. If I try to login with my account number it times out. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail. I logged onto with my PC with absolutely no problem, thinking perhaps I had forgotten my password (?). I had not. Never again will I hit “update all”in the App Store. The magazine is great but if I had to rate the app the way I wanted, it would have no stars. C'mon developers...If it is nowhere near ready for prime time don’t roll it out.
Update does not correctly identify my subscription and thus, all access is gone. I don’t know if it’s poor app writing or if they’re trying to break out a digital only subscription. It was a good run… Good luck in the future
The app was not ready for release. Cannot login. Do not update your existing app.
Seems stable but I cannot download the last couple of issues that I had previously downloaded onto my phone. In fact, they don’t even appear as an option in my library. Under the home tab they are displayed with the recent issues but my only option there is to pay to download them. Logging out of my account and closing the app and logging back in as well as prompting it to Restore purchases or Sync my library does not work. The text to speech feature is a great option, but it would be nice to be able to follow along with the text as it reads it as well as vary the speed. Also I cannot control how far to skip ahead or rewind. Hoping this will improve soon. UPDATED: Deleting and reinstalling the app doesn't restore the issues either. Frankly. as an IT project manager, I'm disappointed in your utter lack of quality control around restoring previously downloaded issues. You didn't think through your user scenarios (existing subscribers already have issues!) nor did you test this very well before throwing it out for US, THE USER COMMUNITY, to test for you. SHAME ON YOU!!!
The new update doesn’t even work I can’t restore my purchase so what now I buy a new magazine?
Update: ITunes Purchase Restored, App works fine now. —————————— Have been trying for the last hours since update, always get message that “restore failed”, why? Was working well until some “genius” determined an update was needed, huh? The old adage “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” seems to apply here. Still works on my iPhone, using previous version of Ap on it.
