Customer Reviews

Fantastic content but glitchy

The Week has been my favorite newsmagazine for years. The content is top-notch--concise and informative.

The iPad app takes great advantage of the platform. When so many other magazines take the easy way out and just replicate their print pages in an app, it's great to see a publisher take the time to re-layout stories to make best use of the iPad's features. The font size is adjustable, which is a boon for old eyes.

The current version of the app has a full range of share buttons, including Evernote, but saving a story to Evernote is unintuitive. If you use the share button, it will save only the headline and nothing else. To save the actual content of the article, you have to Select All and then choose “Share” from the pop-up menu. Even then, you get only the text and not the photos.

The app crashes a lot on iPad 2, which may be more the fault of the hardware than the app. Apart from useful Evernote integration, the feature I need most is some kind of bookmarking. If you leave off partway through an issue, the app does not keep your place and there’s no way to mark it. When you re-launch the app the next day, it sends you to the All Issues page. So you’d better remember where you left off, because the app won’t do it for you.

Surprisingly great magazine app

Having tried other magazine apps, this one is very impressive. The layout of the articles is very pleasing and the lack of advertisements is a MASSIVE plus.

However, It is a bit too easy to scroll left and right between pages. For example, sometimes when I am trying to scroll down to read an article, the page will scroll left or right instead, moving to a different article. It would be great if there were more "stickiness" while scrolling down on the current article to prevent the article from changing. I'm hoping that this makes sense and is something that could potentially be addressed to make the usability even better.

Would love to pick up where I left off.

Great magazine — been a subscriber since 2001 — and the app does its job in presenting it.

One hangup: If I close the app in the middle of reading an issue and resume later, my place is completely lost. I always arrive at the main screen with all the issues when I reopen the app, and when I select the issue I was reading, I’m taken to the table of contents instead of where I left off. The app didn’t always behave this way, and I’d love to see it go back to remembering where I left off so I can stop feeling like I have to read the whole issue at once or lose my place.
