Hurray! You fixed it

When the app worked, it was great. One nit, it should be possible for long-time subscribers (i.e., loyal customers) to have free access to past issues that they have already paid for. (I've been a subscriber since the mid-1980s.)

The current non-functioning 'update' is intolerable. This app gets 4 stars AFTER they fix the crash-upon-open bug.


Ok. So I deleted and reinstalled. That fixes the crash. But then I had to re-download all the issues I had already downloaded. Big waste of time. As promised, I upgraded the app to 4 stars, but if I have to re-download my data every time you folks come out with a new version, I may revise downward.

And I still wish I had access to issues I already own as hardcopy.


Installed upgrade. Didn't have to re-download copy. You now have five stars from me.

UPDATE Dec. 11, 2012

Here we go again. Upgrade crashes and I can't access anything.

Update April 18, 2015

Crashing again. And I can't access issues I already own. And I can't open my new issue.
Please, please fix.

Needs improvement

National Review is a must-read for thinking human beings whether they be conservatives or libertarians. But this app leaves a lot to be desired. My main complaint is that it's too easy to go into the Text mode by inadvertently tapping the screen while reading.

The only way to go into Text mode should be hitting the "Text" button. Right now, I find myself frequently switching between the modes without intending to.

Stand athwart crappy app

Love NR, have since I was an undergrad.
Gave up on NROTD to go digital.

Two major issues (no pun intended):

1. Have to be connected to go to text mode...not good. Lemme have the text I'm paying for offline, please.

2. Much Bigger Problem: Suddenly, inexplicably stops working and goes to black screen. Only solution has been to completely delete app and reload. Not good if you're on a flight which I was both times so far that this has happened! Help, developers! Save my NR!
