What's New in Version 4.0.1
Bug fixes and stability enhancements
Really the absolute worst app I have ever used
Difficult to search.
When reading an article and accidentally swipe left or right when scrolling, the screen shifts to the cover of the article and you have to scroll through it to get back to the place you were reading. And btw when you are trying to scroll quickly there is a good chance you will swipe left or right again and have to start over.
This failing is in addition to the problem that one cannot save the place where they stopped reading and have to scroll through the article to find it. Don't accidentally swipe left or right!
I've been a subscriber for 15 years to the magazine. I travel a lot. It would be nice to be able to read my favorite mag without INCREDIBLE frustration. With all the intellect, couldn't you hire a few decent app developers!?!?!
Review of App, not Content
As the title indicates, this review is only about the App (on iPad Air 2). Too often when I try to start reading at the same point I left off, the App goes to its logo page which not only forces me to click "read", but after doing that, I am put back on the table of contents. So I have scroll past articles that I had already read (or decided not to read) to find the article I want to continue to read. Sometimes if I left off in the midst of the article, I am returned to the start of the article which means remembering where I stopped and scrolling to the correct page.
This review is intended more for The Atlantic's IT department than to readers. My hope is a 1 Star review would get someone's attention.
Completely Unusable Update: now worst app ever
Besides being disorganized this thing is continually asking for my account number off the mailing label. Like I travel with a hard copy so I can read on my iPad. Really annoying. Seriously what's the point if I can't use this on the road. Ask it once, fine. This is awful. It was good before. Update: it is now even worse. Since I have the label I tried once more. It tells me "success!" And doesn't allow me to access anything. Worst app ever. Doesn't even exist.
