What's New in Version 4.0.1
Updated account management facilities.
BEFORE (back when it was print also and they had just added retina): The latest release is awesome. Full retina support. The text is crystal clear now and the images are now done full justice. They didn't go half-way with the retina support as some others have. It all still works very well too as it had before.
NOW: Terrible update that broke a basic tenant and deleted any and all previous issues you had without any warning! WTH! This is also why I generally dislike all cloud/online downloaded media that is protected because it always tends to suddenly disappear on you at some point and there goes everything you ever paid for! Simply a horrific update and to not even warn anyone beforehand.... Who the heck decided to waste time and money writing a new app that is one of the worst ones ever written when the one they already had had been among the best ever written? How can a struggling magazine afford to pay to have an app that did not need to be rewritten to be rewritten? And how can they dare risk releasing something utterly bugged and messed up and poor when they can't afford to lose a single subscriber? It looked better when it was styled as it had been she it was still a print magazine too, much better then.
Did everyone on the design, IT and editing teams get laid off or something? The Newsweek app used to be great, with interesting stories with an easy to use and interactive design. Then the last update came. The redesign is so terrible I can't help but wonder if the staff made a bet to see if they could create the worst app ever. Not only have I experienced the tech issues mentioned below with issues disappearing or failing to download, I was shocked by the degree to which the new layout and design makes the magazine almost unreadable. They eliminated the variety of different length stories, features, etc. and now only have several stories that are giant blocks of text. Not to mention that you lose your place every time you close the app. I have also notified an increasing amount of glaring typos in each issue that make me wonder if anyone is even proofing the magazine? I kept waiting for Newsweek to release an update to correct the horrible changes, but it never came. I have grown up reading Newsweek and will miss reading it each week, but I am left with no choice but to cancel my subscription. Shame on whoever is responsible for these changes for ruining a great publication!
Worst app ever
The last update was horrible this one is even worse. Only reason I updated was because the last update was so sluggish downloading - every time you resumed download, it would erase everything that had already been downloaded. The new update doesn't even allow you to sign on initially and when it does allow you to sign on, it doesn't recognize that you are already a subscriber - it keeps asking you to buy the issue for $4.99. When you call tech support the digital's tech-support isn't even available until 9 AM. Doesn't Newsweek test their new apps or upgrades before they offer them to subscribers? Quality control is nonexistent for software here at Newsweek. I have been a Newsweek subscriber for over 30 years and aside from some false sense of loyalty I'm not sure why I haven't already canceled my subscription -this is strike two on the app upgrades.
