Customer Reviews

Degraded new version

The new version of this app has degraded crucial features. It is no longer possible to send more than a picture of the first page of an article by email. What a shame.

Now there is yet a new version and it still does not allow readers to send and share articles. All you can send is still just a snap of the page the article starts on. What a shame that the app remains a disappointment. All similar apps (NYRB or LRB) allow this. Why not you?

Login every time!!!

The app itself is wonderful. I just loaded it a week or so ago and love it. But I have to log in again every time. Why won't it stay? The iPhone version stays. Also, after their programmers figure out how to fix that, they might consider including the crossword. I'm keeping the paper subscription solely in order to get the puzzle.

Just go ahead and subscribe!

The Times Literary Supplement offers me a quality and style of commentary I otherwise cannot find anywhere else. Treat yourself to a delicious dessert of ideas that have consequences. Bloomington, Minnesota, USA
