Unable to link to existing subscription  MarkPEngineet  1 star

Once app updated I was unable to view content until my print subscription was linked. If instructions are followed You get a blank page without any way to actually complete the linking process. Emailed support twice with no response. App is now useless. Bring back the old app!


Why such a buggy app?  dan8901  1 star

Asks me to link subscription. Click to do so and up pops an empty window. No access via the app.

No more collection of rib-tickling gender stories en mass.


Don't Bother - This Version Is A Waste of Time  wrherndon  1 star

Hoping to finally be able to view my subscription and The Atlantic's articles on my iPad, but no such luck. This app is worthless. Anytime you are off the Internet for more than an hour, the app dumps all your saved stories and freezes when you try to look at one of the downloaded magazines. But even more frustrating, all of the saved stories are still in your iPad's memory, you just can't get to them. In other words, this app has a significant memory leak. Your only option is to delete all the saved stories...which you couldn't get to anyway. The money you've paid for your digital subscription is wasted.

Wheeler Home

Update broke the app  Wheeler Home  1 star

Running on an older iPad. OS 9.3.5. App keeps showing "Go to App Store" message with OK button. Click OK and shows a brief updating app progress bar and message reappears. Deleted app and tried restoring from the App Store. Said the app requires OS 10 something, but could load an earlier version of the app. Clicked OK, but when the app opened got the same message as before, "Go to App Store" with OK button. Don't pretend that your changes won't have an impact. If you aren't truly going to support your app on older devices, just say so.


Forgets Subscriber Credentials on Update  Vcxzghj  2 star

I like the new app interface. But a major annoyance is that the app forgets my subscriber credentials when it updates. Please fix.

Now requires iOS 10, and I only get 9.5. Guess I'll drop my subs to this elitist screed when my subs expires!

Thanks for nothing!


Password problems  IceIceDavey  3 star

Forgot login credentials on update, won't log in. Reset my password, won't accept new password either. Update: tried resetting to shorter password. Devs, if you have a maximum password length, say so!


Best update!  crasshipster  5 star

The Atlantic content is fantastic, as always. At last, the app does some justice to presenting the content. Bare bones but highly usable, stable, easy nav, article sharing and saves, newly included video content - from which I discovered Atlantic content on YouTube without leaving the app. All a long awaited relief for app users. I read another review - I disagree: I'm glad NOT to have comments and user-based data. The website is for that. Please keep the app clean! As a subscriber, I just want to read unobstructed content with nothing begging for my input or forcing me to work around others'. I work with the articles - save, share, get info from to other sources, quote from for blog posts and discussion. It's nice to open the app instead of just glancing at the Atlantic icon on my iPad and going to the website. I kept the app as a reminder (I enjoy a lot of sources and I lose track). Big thanks to the devs for the desperately needed update!

Awful app  rpm_56  1 star

Won't allow offline reading of downloaded issues, take me to signin page incessantly, just a painful, crashing app. A subscriber for over 40 years, great magazine, awful app.

1 star and never more whilst banner trashes up content.


Great magazine terrible app  Mykpants  1 star

There has been very little thought out into the style and function of this app. I have never written an app review before but I thought I'd say something because I want read more Atlantic on my phone . My NYtimes app is probably my most used app as a result of its slick functioning. first of all, the app takes an eternity to load. But my biggest complaint is that it does not remember where I was reading when I left the app. I have to scroll through everything to find the place which, in my opinion makes it almost unusable. If I'm reading on my phone, it's usually because I have some time to kill while I am waiting and I will inevitable be it erupted in the middle of an article. Please fix this, so I can enjoy the app as much as the journalism. Thanks.

Worst app in the App Store?  California Mountain Lion  1 star

I love the magazine but there is no way I can access my issues in the app. It is in perpetual log-in -> success! -> log-in loop. Uninstalling/re-installing doesn't help. Useless!! Make a proper app or don't launch one. It's not rocket science @theatlantic.
