Hersh; Malcolm Gladwell on everything from Steve Jobs to "the tipping point"; Anthony Lane on movies; James Wood on books; Elizabeth Kolbert on the environment; Atul Gawande on health care; fiction by Jonathan Franzen, Zadie Smith, Karen Russell, and Haruki Murakami; humor by David Sedaris and Andy Borowitz; and cartoons by Roz Chast.

What's New in Version 4.2.5
Bug fixes and improvements
On the whole, I think that The NewYorker has done a fairly good job with this app. But there are a few things that I think demand attention, such as its lack of coherence with iOS 7—that is, the dictionary feature should be updated to the flat design. Also, I'd like to see the app take a more iBooks-like approach to screen interactions; as it stands, clicking to define a word also invariably brings up the navigation controls, which tends to jar on the nerves, but iBooks takes a better approach: holding to define a word in that app doesn't affect the display of the navigation controls, which are brought up or down by quickly tapping, resulting in a user experience that is fluid and pleasant. Perhaps the biggest shortcoming of the app, however, is its inability to keep track of where you are in an article once the app has been closed. Personally, I think the app should revert to its previous design, where scrolling through the longer articles wasn't an option—a design that also provided more screen space for reading, as there wasn't a black bar at the top of every page, and better accommodated the cartoon section (frequently, the newer design crashes when flipping through this section, a problem that was seemingly nonexistent in the previous one). In any case, The New Yorker does seem to care about creating the best app that they can for their subscribers, so I hope that they will continue in their attempts to improve it.
An intelligent read for my iPad/iPhone UPDATED
UPDATE 2: Now using iPhone 5S. Works just fine & the retina display makes it much easier to read. Maybe I'm just lucky, but haven't any glitches whatsoever.
UPDATE: Re. many 1 star reviews & complaints regarding crashes & other problems with the iPhone App. Don't know why, but I've no problems whatsoever. Using an iPhone 4, the 5 will have soon. Do probs relate to the iPhone 5? I'll know soon enough at which time I will Update further.
Prior to my iPad/iPhone subscription, my experience has been skimming the magazine while at a doctor's waiting room. I must say that I missed a lot.
The New Yorker Magazine is the most intelligent and well-written magazine I have ever read. The articles are now where I go first (the cartoons last). The writers are intellectual, the poetry is a treat. I am surprised to see so many complaints regarding the price, but remember that this is a weekly publication. I have a monthly digital subscription. Divide by four and you will find that the price per issue is very reasonable (I do not know the newsstand cost). I will conclude by stating that I absolutely love The New Yorker, it sets the bar rather high for magazines.
What’s all the fuss?
I’ve read some scathing reviews for this app that I feel to be unjustified. I just had to write a review to show my support for this app. The wonderful and engaging interactive content far outweighs any minor design quirks that many have complained about (such as no bookmarks). I practically squealed with joy when I discovered you can listen to the authors read their poetry or works of fiction while reading along. This function adds a whole new level of intimacy with the literature and I couldn’t praise it more highly. I have had no problems with crashing or even navigating the menu, though I will agree bookmarking would be a much appreciated feature, especially for the longer articles. It seems to me that many New Yorker readers tend to be rather pedantic (surprise, surprise.) Maybe I am just easily pleased, but I have fallen in love with this app (particularly the interactive content). I probably would have rated it four stars, but I knocked it up to 5 just to thwart all those nitpickers out there.
