About The New Republic for iPad:

The New Republic for iPad brings to life the deeply-informative articles and enthralling photography of the print edition, as well as its peerless commentary and insight about domestic and international politics, national security, healthcare, science, society and more. Plus, experience exclusive videos, interactive features, bonus photography, and other iPad-only features.

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.

Broken app; Can't sign in

Update: still badly broken after all this time. I gave up for a while, tried again, reset password, and everything they asked, and it's still broken.

I've been a print subscriber since 1974. I can sign in to the iPad app for a few issues, then it won't let me sign in. This has happened three or four times. I can sign in to the website, but not the app, even after multiple password updates. App is very broken.

Issues won't download

I've been subscribing to the New Republic through this app for a couple years now, but the last 2 issues haven't been able to download. I've tried everything - stopping and restarting my subscription, deleting and reinstalling the app, etc. - but nothing seems to work. It's ironic that soon after the New Republic announced a new digital push, the iPad app ceased to work... I hope they fix this issue soon!

Squandered an early lead

When iPads came out four years ago, The New Republic app was a dazzling innovative online reader. Only to squander what advantages it had. Now it won't even display the trial issue correctly, or let .a regular subscriber download an issue without logging in repeatedly. Oh what a noble effort is here overthrown! Time for some experimentation at TNR.
