*Horrible* layout on iPad
The new "unified experience" is a complete aesthetic and usability failure on the iPad. Vertical letterboxing (?!?) and aggessive image cropping destroy the magazine's cover and photo layouts. The former version's easy page index, accessible anywhere while browsing an issue, is gone. Also gone is the former version's at-a-glance library view indicating which issues you've downloaded. Now, there's no quick way to know which issues are local, which are in the cloud.
Why make your magazine uglier, harder to read, harder to access? It's as if Vanity Fair believes none of its Apple subscribers actually use the iPad. Or nobody actually tested the app on an iPad?
Anyhoo, forget this junky app--if you're an iPad reader, you're much better off getting the magazine through Zinio or Texture apps, both of which give you each issue's whole, actual photo layouts and also offer a great iPhone experience.
new version is terrible
I have waited over 40 mins for the current issue to download, and it's still not done. I lost 3 yrs of downloaded copies with the 'upgrade'. I will never be able to restore them all at this rate. If the downloaded version looks anything like the web version that I can (sort of) browse while trying to download, I won't want to read it on my iPad anyway.
It's totally lost the magazine feel, as well as the ability to leave and come back to the same place and it now has ridiculous 'adds' like clustering articles by how long they think it takes me to read them vs following the flow of the magazine. The font is too large and there's no white space at the margins.
I switched to the iPad version a couple of years ago and have been donating my paper copies, but if this isn't addressed, I'll delete the app and go back to the paper version. It's that bad.
Please don't ruin the New Yorker reading experience by making similar changes to that app as well. Having to abandon the iPad version of that weekly will be even more painful.
Who's reading this magazine on their iPad? Not the folks who updated this app
This "upgrade" of the magazine app is a travesty for readers. Obviously not designed by someone who reads the actual magazine. Cropping the pages to partial page size, taking away the keeping of your place while mid-read of an article or edition are just a few of the ridiculous "upgrades". I can't always finish an article, now I have to remember which months edition I'm on and then search for the article and then finally find my page. Seriously??? Bring back the previous version of this app. You are making me completely regret my "paperless" subscription to this magazine that I've loved for 30 years.
