ABOUT THE NEW YORKER
The New Yorker offers a signature mix of reporting and commentary on politics, international affairs, and the arts, along with fiction, poetry, humor, and cartoons. Founded in 1925, The New Yorker has set the standard for reporting and cultural coverage, and has received more National Magazine Awards than any other magazine. In 2016, The New Yorker became the first magazine to win a Pulitzer Prize for its writing, bringing home two awards that year.

Now nothing's "going on"
Splash screen loaded (complete with glaringly obvious MasterCard sponsorship mention), check. Ridiculously tiny horizontal MasterCard ads animating in app, check.
Content? Nada. Zippo. Zilch. Blank black hole. Please fix!!!
Until then it's TimeOut NY which is inferior when it comes to covering culture-based events in the Big Apple.
Stick with the magazine
Dang, do I love The New Yorker, but this app is basically useless, because you can't filter by date. In fact, the only way to see event dates is to click into the event, then clunkily return (no swiping). PLEASE let me just see What's Going On today (or tomorrow...or next Friday).
Know the goings on
This is a great app. I regularly use it to decide what to do in my area on a given night. I often recommend it to people, particularly those who feel "overwhelmed" but the options in New York or don't know where to look for information and reviews.
My one suggestion which prevents me from giving a perfect rating - please color code the map! If the pins for restaurants, concerts, theater, art galleries, etc., were each a different color, it would allow the user to quickly narrow in on their interest, instead of having to click through a bunch of restaurants before finding a show.
