The New Yorker Today app is the best way to stay on top of news and culture every day, and the magazine each week.

• Get a daily blend of in-depth reporting, political commentary, cultural criticism, and humor from the website.
• Read each week’s magazine and browse past issues.
• Receive alerts on breaking-news coverage by your favorite New Yorker writers and notifications about major pieces in the magazine.
• Flip through a nearly endless supply of New Yorker cartoons using the Cartoon Randomizer tab
• Access The New Yorker Sticker Pack: download the app, add the extension to iMessage, and liven up your texts with Christoph Niemann’s signature drawings and animations of city life
• Read articles offline and bookmark long reads to finish later

The app is free to download. Subscribers receive unlimited access. Non-subscribers may access a limited number of articles each month. Most current New Yorker subscribers have unlimited access to the app as part of their existing subscription. Subscribers with a print-only subscription may not have unlimited access. Users who have trouble accessing unlimited stories, or who wish to upgrade their access level may call Customer Service at 1-800-967-2082. All users have unlimited access to the Cartoon Randomizer, which does not count toward the article limit for non-subscribers. All users have unlimited access to the Sticker Pack, which is free to download and requires iOS 10 or above. A subscription costs $8.99 a month or $89.99 annually, and includes a 30-day free trial, after which it will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period and will state the cost of renewal. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user’s account settings after purchase. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable. Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase.

The New Yorker Today app requires iOS 9 or above.

Bookmarks won't work


Saving where you're at on an article is an amazing feature when it works. Half the time I reopen the article, I'm at the top of the article instead of where I left off. It doesn't matter if I manually bookmark it, or close out of the app - it sometimes works, and other times it won't.

The app works fine aside from that, but considering the length of the articles, that's a pretty necessary feature.

I do wish there were fun ways to discover old articles I may not find otherwise (a retrospective, editor's choice, browse by tags, etc.), or that the old articles went back even further.

What a Mess!


Entirely agree with the previous reviewer - this app is a complete mess: You can’t sign in properly - it loses your passwords, and repeatedly tells you have read your free articles, which are indeed NOT free, because you have already subscribed and linked. It does all this THROUGH THE LINKED EMAIL! I have just gotten a new password from a human, and there is no way to change that to a password of my own choice. How about you go back to the drawing board and FIX THIS AWFUL THING!!!! Did they actually pay you for this? If I could give you negative stars, I would give you about 10 of them! Can’t submit this without giving you one of them.

Cannot Cancel


This is probably the most narcissistic app I’ve ever seen: its subscription is an one-way street.

There isn’t an ‘cancellation’ tab in the app. I tried New Yorker’s customer service website, but it is for web/print subscriptions only; I called the customer service number listed on New Yorker website, but gave up after half an hour of waiting; I emailed The in-app ‘contact us’ email address, haven’t got a reply after 48 hours.

I eventually had to download and log into my iTunes (instead of App Store) to cancel my subscription, which is certainly not the common practice for canceling subscription.

P.S: I’m a millennial working in Silicon Valley tech industry. I have been an apple product user for ~10 years, and have a PhD in a computer-related field. If I need 2 days to figure out how to cancel this subscription, then I guess it would only take longer for a less tech-savvy, smart-phone-addicted user.
