Good magazine, terrible app

I love TNR's content, but the app stinks. The app's biggest problem is that it doesn't allow me to download the newest issue until months after the paper magazine hits my mailbox. I have tried refreshing the app and restoring my purchases to no avail. The app still only shows the July issue as the most recent.

For a magazine that supposedly let the majority of its staff walk out because it was going to focus on digital content, this app's failure should be a complete embarrassment.

On the positive side, the issues I am able to see work great. The digital magazine is laid out well and functions smoothly. In the future TNR should work to incorporate more interactive features to enrich the user experience. At this point, however, I'd just like them to fix the app's most basic functions.

No problems - are others reading on iPhone or iPad?

Maybe I'm just lucky, but the app works just fine for me. Downloading issues, navigating, and reading content all work fine. I'm reading on a third generation iPad because I don't like the experience of reading magazines on an iPhone. Don't know if that makes a difference as to how the app functions.

I'm a little surprised to see only 12 reviews. Hope that doesn't correlate to the number of subscribers!

Great Mag -- Terrible App -- Worse Support

As other mags are improving their already solid app TNR seems to be going in the other direction. It's almost difficult to communicate just how bad this app is. Available issues are MONTHS out of date, slow to load and have LESS content than is available on the website for free. I contacted support by email. The took TWO WEEKS to respond with an email that they would try and look into these issues. Terrible app. Terrible support.
