Customer Reviews

New format unhelpful (May 2016)

National Review, an excellent journal of sensible, informed opinion and analysis, just completely revamped its app. The result is a disaster. The biggest disappointments are the inability to view all of the covers at a time, making it impossible to see recent issues at a glance, and the horrid "text" feature, which unlike the very nice previous versions opens a text window in the bottom half of the screen. Who thought that was a good idea? Probably the pajama boy NR has recently been lambasting. The positive: the app is less unusable than the current iteration of the NR website. Whoever designed that monstrosity clearly never tried to search for a specific article on it!

Works for me

I don't have a problem with the "text" view / me two reading options. Would be nice to see all the library at once, but that's not such a big deal. Otherwise, it works fine.

New app worthless

You are now greeted with a HUGE banner add for a cruise, and an incredibly small single icon representing all issues. No grid, no list, no easy way to explore issues.
This is the worst magazine app available in 2016, possibly the worst app in general.
The most infuriating thing is that the app was decent before they updated it, so they intentionally made it into the useless pos it is today.
