Customer Reviews of the First Things App

Looks good, no links

Wonderful publication, looks great on the iPad, but I would really like to see links to the articles incorporated into the table of contents or the menu. It's a little thing, but that's how you make a Apple Newsstand publication look really professional.

Latest Version is Useless

I faithfully updated the First Things app to the latest version a week ago and now I lost all saved items. It does not save editions that have been purchased for offline reading. It only shows items though December 2018. When I sent a request for help, I was told that the publisher did not release Jan, Feb or March 2019 for Maz ( the app creator) to put online. On another IPad Pro that thankfully have not updated to this version of the app, I still have access to all downloads and especially the 3 2019 issues. Do not update to this version!

Terrible app!!!

The app is the unfriendliest ever. Can’t undeline, or copy, the look is terrible. Just an aweful app

Not at all ready for small screen

Pages emulate magazine layout and are not optimized for small screen. 2-tap inflates text beyond screen. Impossible to finagle into readability. Same with iPad. Print also incompatible with Retina display and mildly blurry. I instantly regretted this buy. Asked for and received a refund, which took multiple calls and disconnections. Those tasked with supporting this app knew little about it. Great publication, on paper.

The most recent update made this app unusable, and I am unable to find a way to fix it. I am going to cancel my subscription and see about getting a refund.

Six months and one update later this app is still worthless. I paid for the full subscription and can not access any issues. Currently the app simply crashes every time it is turned on. Avoid this app until some genuine improvements are made.

Unreadable on iPhone

Needs work to utilize full screen of newer iPhones, and to make text an appropriate and readable size.

Great mag

Poor app

Non-reflowable text is user-hostile & makes this app difficult to impossible to use on an iPad mini. If your app is just PDFs then just email people PDFs instead. Better yet, make a proper app.

Newstand

I am happy that First Things has made the move to Newstand but something is wrong. When I click to open it in Newstand it keeps crashing. Even after I reboot the iPad.
