The New Yorker Magazine Reviews


Great when it works..  okPennyZ  1 star

But doesn't more often than not. Guess I'll have to resume paper if at all. What a shame this literary institution cannot keep apace with app culture. I don't have time to fuss w/ passwords and whatnot. Buh-bne, NYer. It was fun while it lasted.


Text not Stable  Cosmo1231  1 star

One cannot read the articles because the text keeps shifting around Also articles do not open easily and pages not very responsive to swipes. Very difficult to navigate within the app even though layout is appealing


No stars  Rittersportster  1 star

Fix this app or forget it! I don't mind print but others prefer digital. They're paying for nothing. This is the 21st century!


Latest update is buggy & creaky  Elliott-C  1 star

Pages constantly jump and jitter at least in part due to the way ads are crammed in and placed everywhere. Can't find the Dining Out column and a search results for it brings up columns from years ago and non point to the current edition. Bad, really bad all.


Like a Monty Python skit of awfulness  NickChristie1  1 star

You could only design an app this badly with wilful intent.


Great Content But App Is Quirky  RB NYC  4 star

The content is the same great writing as the magazine that probably brought you to the app. For that, 4 stars. But, the app for the ipad is definitely quirky. If you don't have an existing subscription and account, its not at all clear how to proceed. Its even trickier if you have an account but no current subscription. In the latter case, the Complete Ipad Setup didn't work - after entering everything, the app froze. After restarting, I tried the simple "subscribe" option, which did get me the iPad subscription. But i found no way to connect it with my online login. While I think they need to update their app, the content is still worth it.

RU Kidding?864

Really?  RU Kidding?864  1 star

So I write a whole review, am forced to give this app one star, when it deserves none, then pressed "Send," only to see a message that the user name I chose was taken, and poof! My review went into the ether. (Shoulda copied, I know). I am a longtime TNY subscriber, so I try again: You'd think a media co. like Conde Nast would produce a better app. Ad intrusion is wretched. If that's all CN cares about, then they deserve to lose subscribers. Worse, though, are problems trying to link account with digital. Too bad for TNY. They're doing a great job becoming a daily go-to for news analysis, but that effort is sabotaged by poor technology.


Don't even bother  monoclonal  1 star

Don't even try logging into your account thinking that you will be able to access your subscription, even though you subscribed online while logged in to the website. Then good luck trying to link your subscription to your login information. There's no such option. Think you'll be able to get into your subscription by entering your account number? Good luck! You'll be getting an error message saying that it's already linked to your account. Then if you think you'll be able to contact customer support, you're bigly mistaken. The page freezes. Completely useless app. Do not waste your money. Get another subscription from a magazine organization that actually cares about its readers.


Worst App I've ever used  Dickens5678  1 star

Don't buy a subscription if you are going to attempt use an IPad to read it. The screen flashes constantly, and I mean CONSTANTLY due to scrolling ads. I paid for a subscription and it is unreadable due to ads. I am very disappointed that so fine a publication has such a terrible platform. I will definitely be cancelling my subscription because this app is not useable.


Still dysfunctional  tugpup  1 star

Still the pits! Nothing happens like forever when trying to scroll. Pure garbage. Read on your computer in a browser.


Needs to rotate  Hehebsbsbbs  1 star

Not acceptable for use on the iPad, since it won't rotate. Fine for iPhone though.


No help from customer service  Michele.MD  3 star

As others have mentioned, this app's bizarre glitch is that it won't let you log into your account. It's infuriating. I attempted to contact customer service through the website, but it's been over a week, and I have received no reply. However, I found that a good trick is to say no when it asks if you want to restore purchases.


Could be better  KSpoerri  3 star

Pros: Very readable format Keeps your place in an article when you leave the app Cons: No bookmarks Cannot change background color


Love the magazine, hate the app  Preshapes  1 star

I'm finding it totally useless. It constantly loses my data and I have to re-enter it. Now when I do that, I constantly (over a period of days) get a message saying unable to connect, try later. When I go to Customer Care, it tells me "incorrect state and ZIP" even though the fields don't include state and the ZIP is what appears on my address label. And when I attempt to sign in using the label information, it says it can't find me. Utterly frustratingly dysfunctional!!!!


Updated: Still Bad  cjrockawitz  1 star

This app is awful. Terrible navigation. Signs you out almost every time. And now my accounts seemingly been erased and it won't come back or link.


No Audio playback control  JonRWilson  1 star

No update in 2 years! The authors reading of the fiction piece is great, but the playback through only a play/pause button--no ability to scrub--is very frustrating when the app stops playing when the screen turns off rotates. Give podcast style controls at a minimum.


Flash ads degrade content, awful on slow connections  boborojo  3 star

A multi-decade print subscriber, I like the content. But reading the latest daily content as it comes out makes me grit my teeth. Flash ads re-arrange the entire screen each time I scroll, my reading point moves to a new place on the screen. On my usual slow rural internet connection, scrolling locks up seconds at a time. Screen redraws happen constantly and are annoyingly slow. The section with mid-week updates seems to have 10 times the advertising placement and the animation of ads is maddening within the app. 5 stars for written content, one star for ad platform.

Gentle Wanderer

A New Yorker Observation  Gentle Wanderer  5 star

Contrary to many of the dissatisfied reviewers, I myself am very pleased with the quaint format of the New Yorker app. Its simplicity offers a pleasant experience to the user whenever he/she opens the app. However, I will say that as a long-time subscriber of the New Yorker, browsing through previous issues can be a bit of a hassle, especially since you can't narrow down search results other than scrolling down with a weary thumb. For the most part, though, I recommend this app for fellow, or aspiring, subscribers.


Better reading experience needed  tarawheat  2 star

Please get rid of that obnoxious little "share" box in the lower left hand corner of every screen (except the ads of course). Not only does it force an awkward display of text on the screen (lopsided with a bunch of white space on the left) it's just super annoying and distracting. One of the things I like about the New Yorker is their attention to design and layout, with simplicity ruling the day, but this little "feature" really ruins it.


Inconsistent idiosyncratic navigation tools  Bob.Eisenberg  1 star

Inconsistent idiosyncratic navigation tools make this a painful app to use. Library panel should be accessible whenever the reader chooses to see it.
