  • July 2022, forced app upgrade, dumped old saved issues

    By boborojo
    Longtime print - online subscriber and reader here. Was pleased that with prior “print edition” app i could download AND SAVE issues to view on a large-screen ipad, or a mini for airplane reading. After a forced app upgrade years ago, all my saved full issues deleted, had to redownload each and every one. On a rural connection DSL it takes a minute per issue and mind numbing icon stroking and scrolling. July 2022, again, the app is upgraded, all my saved issues are not ported to the upgraded app. I got to a google-fiber wifi to download issues, all over again. (Edited) at first it looked like i could only download current year issues. Then i went back and noticed a “year” scroll menu (top right, then bottom) to allow prior-year issue download. Back to 2008. So, next app upgrade, will CN continue to refresh archives, or will the old bits just vanish? Twice, issues were not imported in the app upgrade. Remember, readers. Your online media are ephemeral. If you value the content, save the print edition, because CondeNaste may or may not continue to refresh any paid-for archive of digital content. Fortunately, my “saved articles” list, which was initially blank after the upgrade, reappeared after a minute or two- i think it is intact?. So, rating: content quality, 5 stars. Delivery and loss of archives, zero stars. Old issues have been deleted twice, now.
  • All The Things You Can’t Manage

    By bluedrag0neyes
    Past downloaded issues now need to be located by year and month, there’s a “library” for you but it only stores saved articles, as opposed to multiple issues. There seems to be no (obvious) way to adjust font size and you can no longer access the magazine from the cover “page”. Why are any of these problems seen as improvements?
  • Unnecessary switch to a worse app

    By gurnetme
    Nice job. I was directed to switch to the new app today by a message saying that the old one was about to become obsolete. The new app did not find my subscription right away even though it gave the option of giving my address. And then when I finally linked my subscription I discovered the new app is of the kind where you scroll down the page to click on a story instead of being able to just swipe through the pages as if reading an actual magazine. The New Yorker used to be one of my favorite magazine apps and now it’s lousy. National Geographic did a similar dumb “upgrade” a few years ago but now I believe has changed back to pages. The Economist is also now awful.
  • Subpar maintenance

    By Sumaoji
    EVERY MONTH begins with the app denying my subscription, even though I’m signed in and paid up. So I contact support, they reset something. I start reading again. New month - rinse and repeat. This company is lazy. Moreover, they don’t seem to attend to longtime readers/subscribers like me. After writing to them at the start of every month since March, I don’t think they’re listening. Come July I’ve deleted the app and gone to my browser to reach my subscription. Their replies feel like auto-generated pap. They never solve the problem. Good luck to you if you try this app. I’m OUT!
  • One of the worse apps ever

    By Tenant171
    When trying to cancel the newsletter, it keeps taking me to a different page. No access to the full listings of Goings on about Town. That is ridiculous. No response to letters about my technical problems. I was a subscriber, but now I cancelled the subscription.
  • New app does not work with my previous account purchased through Apple

    By mrigdon59
    New York magazine for whatever reason decided to develop a new app. Of course this canceled my old account with Apple. Despite multiple attempts I am not able to restore any of my previous account and now have to sign up for a new account through the New Yorker. New Yorker customer service refuses to help and will not connect me to any IT person. Apple also was not helpful. I hate these companies that constantly develop new apps and fix something that doesn’t need to be fixed.
  • Night time mode

    By Dargies
    Create a nighttime mode. Also make it easier to find and choose crosswords
  • Rubbish app

    By Rokeach
    Does not work on ipad, don’t bother
  • Frustrating

    By mmnbikn
    I love the New Yorker, but I am going nuts needing to link my subscription over and over again every time I open the app. I’ve never seen an app with no way to quickly login, including no FaceID.
  • Terrible, can’t sign in

    By esttt2
    Please keep the old app active. The one where you can link to your apple subscription in one click. Please don’t make me change to this new one where after hours I fail to get my subscription recognized. I will have to cancel the magazine. Not a great revenue move, this new app given the reviews.
