Founded in 1914, The New Republic has counted Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, John Maynard Keynes, and W.E.B. Du Bois among its contributors. Notable recent work includes an exclusive interview with President Obama by Franklin Foer and Chris Hughes; an investigation into the miserable state of American day care by Jonathan Cohn; an award-winning first-person essay by Walter Kirn on growing up Mormon in America; the rise of a meaner and better-funded gun reform movement by Alec MacGillis; the potentially lethal effect loneliness can have on a person by Judith Shulevitz; and frequent contributions by Michael Kinsley, John B. Judis, Noam Scheiber, Julia Ioffe, and many others.

The New Republic was a finalist for the 2013 National Magazine Award for Literary, Political and Professional Magazines.

Customer Reviews

The app is a big dissapointment

There are major problems with the app on the ipad. Scrolling down through an article frequently results in the balance of an article dissapearing. scrolling down also frequently causes the app to jump to another article. It is almost impossible to read an article completely.

Interestingly, on the N.R. website, the 'contact us' link is also disabled. I was hoping for a lot more with Chris Hughes at the helm.


It's surprising that the cofounder of Facebook can't make a functional app for his new magazine. I'm a TNR subscriber and tried logging in repeatedly but the app crashes every time. So I downloaded the trial issue to see if a functional version would be potentially a worthy print replacement, and while it seems nice it is basically just a PDF with no zoom capability. Clearly, no effort went into this app at all.

Don't subscribe through the App Store :-(

Unfortunately the New Republic will not provide you with access to the New Republic on the web if you subscribe through iTunes. It makes no sense but I imagine it has to do with the 30%cut that Apple takes. So now I still can't access the New Republic blogs and daily updates even though I've just spent $35. Pretty outrageous.
