Ratings and Reviews

Download process should be in background!


If I accept the download notification, my current reading is in effect aborted and I cannot return to where I left off. This is a big problem when I'm catching up on on articles I skipped in earlier issues. Please just start the download and allow me to continue reading, or else silent bookmark my place as you do whenever I switch to another app.

Slow to load


The New Yorker is a great read on the iPad, and it's a special joy to be able to access it in digital format when a subscription to the print edition delivers to Australia weeks after issue at a higher price (not a satisfactory situation for a weekly).
However this new version is buggy on a first-generation iPad. It loads a little quicker now but fails to load completely; images and cartoons, when you touch their + icon, will slide up briefly then they vanish.
I'm glad to see that Zinio is now offering The New Yorker. I'll wait out my current subscription and then switch to Zinio; a much more reliable and impressively faster way to access mags than Apple's problematic Newsstand app.

Really handy


I really enjoy this way of reading the New Yorker. Not only do I find it easier but it's also a lot earlier (I live in Australia so it arrives well before the printed version).
The added content is improving all the time and it's great to be able to alert others to good articles. It's easy to read and convenient.

Some suggested improvements
You can only keep so many editions on your iPad at a time so it would be handy to be able to distinguish in the store between "purchased and read" and just "purchased" issues. Similarly, in the index of the magazine, it would be good to be able to mark stories as "read".
Due to the size of each issue it takes a while to download so it would be able to do so in background. Whenever I've tried to read an issue during downloading, it pauses. If you go to another app you have to start over again. Sometimes this happens even when you read another issue.
