Customer Reviews

Love the magazine, don't love the app

Update: since the iOS update it’s no longer possible to log into the Atlantic app as a subscriber. You just get a blank screen. What’s the point of subscribing. I don’t want to read the paper magazine only!

Fabulous magazine, great content. App has some pain points. First, I periodically and mysteriously get logged out of the app and logging back in is a huge hassle. Be great if I could just stay logged in. Second, if I flip the screen all the text gets smushed together and weird, and the only way to fix it is to completely shut down the app (not just close, but force quit). Third, if I close my iPad or power off with the app open, the text gets all wonky and the app has to be force quit to reset.

Still not there

Still asking me for login details. Even though I have a print subscription that I have linked to the app, there appears to be no option to select appropriately. I didn’t buy via iTunes; I am a print subscriber BUT I have used the app before. In any case, selecting this option takes me to a blank screen. Infuriating. Meanwhile, the Atlantic sends me ludicrously early reminders to renew my subscription, which doesn’t expire for another year at least. How hard can it be to fix this?

No no no

This is almost there, id just like to not ha e to try to relink my account over and over. Also loved that you used to predownload articles, flip to airplane mode and still read. The latest UI overhaul caused major login issues. Latest smaller update didn't fix any issues linking to my Atlantic subscription.
