Harper's Magazine

By 29th Street Publishing, LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Experience the digital version of Harper’s Magazine, the oldest continuously published general-interest monthly in America. Harper’s explores the issues that drive our national conversation, through long-form narrative journalism and essays, and such celebrated features as the Harper’s Index.

With its emphasis on fine writing and original thought, Harper’s provides readers with a unique perspective on politics, society, the environment, and culture. Many of the essays, fiction, and reporting in the magazine are written by promising new voices, while our archive includes some of the most distinguished names in American letters, among them Annie Dillard, Barbara Ehrenreich, Jonathan Franzen, Mary Gaitskill, and David Foster Wallace. Harper’s also features award-winning photography and illustration from the likes of Lena Herzog, Samuel James, and Steve Mumford.

Issues on the Harper’s Magazine app include all stories and art from the print edition of the magazine. Each digital edition is designed to provide a straightforward and elegant reading experience on your tablet or smartphone.

Subscriptions are $45.99 for twelve issues, delivered monthly, and your subscription gives you Web access to our entire archive—more than 160 years of Harper’s.

When you become a subscriber, you can download any issue published while your subscription is active. If your subscription lapses, you will still be able to read the issues published while you were an active subscriber.

To read issues published before your subscription began, you must pay for them individually at $6.99 per issue. Tap the “Restore” button to make previously purchased issues available on your iPhone, iPod or iPad. You can update or cancel your subscription in your iTunes Store account settings.

Customer Reviews

Do not subscribe through this app

This app is not like what they describe on the Harper's website. The features that they claim the app has do not exist.

Yes, I have been able to download and read the latest issue of the magazine each time a new one is published. But the app is so rudimentary that it is absolutely not worth it.

They also promise that you will be able to log on to the website and access all the online archives. I have been unable to do so.

I have exchanged emails with Harper's about this, and they have NOT been helpful.

Overall this is a poor product. Don't subject yourself to the frustration. It has ruined my reading enjoyment.

Click Back Issues > Subscription

Log in by selecting Back Issues then Subscription. Scroll down to put in your email and password. Agree this should be made much more obvious to new App users.

App unusable / blank

I'm a regular subscriber and recently (6 months ago) started using the app. Was initially happy with it, however in past two months can barely use it -- goes blank/white when you click between pages or crashes abruptly. Terrible, read the nyer app instead.
