Ratings and Reviews
The New Yorker Magazine
The New Yorker Magazine is an application mostly designed for current subscribers but it has a little something for those who are not. Users familiar with other Condé Nast magazine applications such as GQ, Vanity Fair and Wired will be familiar with the layout where all issues made available are presented in a shelf section allowing you to purchase individually if a non subscriber or log in and simply download if you are a subscriber. Also included is a FAQ section. The application can both serve as a way to read the whole issues digitally or as a compliment with interactive content you can't get in print issues. For non subscribers there is a limited free preview available for the latest issue where you can read a few short story articles but none of the more famous long form content. These articles can be shared with others as well as read. The New Yorker Magazine is a well designed streamlined application that makes it easy for subscribers to manage their library on the go and non subscribers to get a taste of the monthly magazine or purchase issues they may be interested in.
Back up and working great
Been having problems with App not opening since last update for iPad. I decided to totally delete App and reload after 5 minutes. It reloaded and I had to sign in again. All is well. This experience was my first bad experience with this App. I also swiped off all pages I had visited before doing this delete. The iCloud retained all my magazine issues.
Someone wrote in a review of App why they had to pay twice for a magazine when they had the print issues. Well, that extra few bucks pays the App developer and all the bugs etc that everyone talks about and getting them fixed.
I also shut down my iPad and iPhone periodically to keep it running in tip top shape. Desktop computers need this as do laptops. So, why not your computer iPhone and iPad.
Embarrassingly Poor User Experience
I’ve given up on using this app and retried it several times, but it still is so tedious to use. Here are a few of my main complaints.
- It crashes regularly, sometimes requiring a reinstall, and reentry of the login information.
- Ads are not only placed both on the side and inline, but also disrupt the reading experience. Whenever an ad refreshes, the screen goes blank for about a second, and the content is moved around. As the reader, I lose my place in the article, have to visually search for it again, and often have to scroll up or down.
- Scrolling is affected by ads as well. After placing the first line of text after an ad at the top of the display, the ad placement is readjusted, and covers the first few lines that I just was about to read.
As others pointed out, this is not about the content, but the user experience. While I enjoy reading other magazines on the iPad, for this one it’s back to the print version.
