All users have unlimited access to the Cartoon Randomizer, which does not count toward the article limit for non-subscribers. All users have unlimited access to the Sticker Pack, which is free to download and requires iOS 10 or above. A subscription costs $8.99 a month or $89.99 annually, and includes a 30-day free trial, after which it will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period and will state the cost of renewal. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user’s account settings after purchase. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable. Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase.

Ratings and Reviews
Not worthy of the New Yorker
I think your App is AWFUL and I love everything else about the NYer...whenever I get my daily email from the Nyer with a story that interests me I click on it but it denies me entry (why if the NYer sends mail to my email address can it not recognize that I have been a subscriber for THIRTY PLUS years???)...but I’m interested enough in the article to open up my NYer App to read the article there but half the time it denies me access, instructing me to link my subscription (which I have done repeatedly!!!)
Tonight was the final straw: Patrick Berry is my favorite crossword constructor so I was eager to tackle his puzzle; I went through the rigamarole described above, but when I reached the Link Your Subscription page, my attempts to either enter my address or my subscription number failed. Aaaaaargh!
Please tell me what I am doing wrong and make the NYer more digital friendly for your loyal and enthusiastic subscribers!!!
Bookmarks won't work
Saving where you're at on an article is an amazing feature when it works. Half the time I reopen the article, I'm at the top of the article instead of where I left off. It doesn't matter if I manually bookmark it, or close out of the app - it sometimes works, and other times it won't.
The app works fine aside from that, but considering the length of the articles, that's a pretty necessary feature.
I do wish there were fun ways to discover old articles I may not find otherwise (a retrospective, editor's choice, browse by tags, etc.), or that the old articles went back even further.
Love the New Yorker, the app has problems
Like others have noted, the app boots me off every month and tells me I’m no longer subscribed to them. When I log in online, it shows that I am still subscribed. When I try to link my subscription, it claims it’s already tied to another email address. Basically for a few days every month you can’t read any articles because of the app’s problems. I love the New Yorker, but this is extremely frustrating.
The app interface is pretty and not buggy, but some features of the app don’t work (like saving your place when reading an article). This app needs some work for sure!
