Initially there were a few problems with the app crashing but that problem was solved and it works very well. The stories are concise, well written and timely. It gives more thoughtful detail to the major stories of the day. I especially enjoy the "fun" things like the quiz, photo of the week and special reports. The report on the Civil War was particularly interesting. Overall, this is an easy way to keep up important issues.
Try dumping and reloading app
The content of U S News and World Report is still valuable, unfortunately, the app is very buggy.
I regularly have to delete the app, re-install then re-register my subscription to download the most recent issue. When you do this always use the download 'archive' button.
Hopefully this app will be fixed before my current subscription expires, else I may not renew.
Crashes 50% of the time
Good news: When it works I enjoy the app.
Bad News: It crashes on opening >50% of the time. Sometimes filling the app and restarting it will fix the problem. Sometimes I have to reboot my iPad Mini to fix the problem. Sometimes I have to uninstall and reinstall the app to get it to work. Overall not worth the trouble.
My recommendation is to buy a Kindle subscription and read it through the Kindle reader app.
