Wonderful publication, terrible new app

Nicola918

(Updated)
I tried to put the bugs and annoyances aside but there are too many. The app is slow and bug ridden. After 4 years I have to say goodbye to one of my favorite reads. I will not even finish our my yearly subscription which is seven months left. Best of luck to the developers.

As with another poster, I would like to start with The Week is a fantastic publication. And up until this new version of the app, always enjoyed the digital experience. Unfortunately, this new app is unusable. I subscribe to the print + digital version. While logged in I am unable to download any previous issue, although I’ve attempted to Restore Purchases. (I’ve been a subscriber for three years.). The font resizing does not work (as it is defaulting to the smallest font.). And any attempts to scroll through pages brings up a progress/activity wheel which lags the reading / page turning experience a number of seconds. I am using a 2nd generation 12.9” iPad Pro, so I quite confident it is not the hardware. Until these and other smaller issues are corrected, I cannot recommend this app.

The Week app is now terrible

da Drizzler

Update: Still terrible. You can no longer share articles. Instead it sends a link that says check out this article from the week but when they click on it it just sends them to the App Store instead of actually showing the article you wanted to share. Bait and switch method, total garbage. Still can’t highlight words to look up within articles. Layout is still bad. Looks like a high school yearbook level of professionalism. Very close to canceling subscription.

I’m a long time reader of the Week for over 10 years. Before the latest update the app was perfectly fine. Now it’s worse in almost every way. The layout is terrible, you can’t select words to look up on an iPad, it’s harder to navigate, and they took away cool features like being able to see the pin points on the map where stories originated from. It’s like some marketing dudes at the Week said it’s about time for a complete app overhaul, just because! So they changed it for the sake of change while not improving anything. Please go back to the other format.

App has room for improvement, but is getting better

LeaMarkInv

I wish there were two votes to rank the app - the content is a solid five star, the app - as you can clearly read in other reviews - has had a slow start. If you’d asked me a week ago it would have been a 1 star, but with the updates have come improvement.

There are still things on my wish list - being able to highlight again is top on the list. Sometimes it’s nice to either save the document in Evernote or GoodNotes or look up the definition of the word. I enjoyed the maps that would designate where the article “Across the World” was referring, and I still have challenges with the last article read.

The programming team has already solved one of my biggest peeves after the rollout: banner size and asking me if I want to restore past purchases. This gives me confidence in saying that the app, while not perfect, is working its way towards perfection.
