Andrew <3's Apple's Review of New Republic

Reviewed on 12/17/18 1:09 PM

Definitely living up to its tradition, TNR is supreme in terms of essay driven print journalism. This magazine is well worth the price. It's beautiful to use and the content is excellent.

Ironic

Tregjm's Review of New Republic

It's surprising that the cofounder of Facebook can't make a functional app for his new magazine. I'm a TNR subscriber and tried logging in repeatedly but the app crashes every time. So I downloaded the trial issue to see if a functional version would be potentially a worthy print replacement, and while it seems nice it is basically just a PDF with no zoom capability. Clearly, no effort went into this app at all.

Just started... and I'm all done.

No Jokes Jake's Review of New Republic

What? No landscape orientation?... Just downloaded this app to find out it loads and apparently stays in portrait mode on the iPad. Can't find a way to configure it for landscape mode... That said, I have no further use for it. In fact, in my opinion any iPad app that is released without landscape orientation capability is an app that is still in beta, and is not ready for release.

Fix fonts

KCB1983's Review of New Republic

Ok, but I cannot read it without glasses because the font size is not adjustable. If iPad is going to compete as an e-reader, font size adjustment and orientation adjustment need to be standard.

Awkward

Halting navigation, random page sizes, horsey typography. Let me just read, but on the Mini text is too small. Hint: check out The Economist app.

App is inconsistent

New issues don't appear right away. You have to sign out and sign in. Subscriber services respond to emails very slowly, if at all.

The app is a great improvement. One of the nicer magazine apps

Doesn't work

Authentication broken. This is an expensive paid subscription — customer support organization says they can do nothing and asks that subscribers not contact them. Chris Hughes seems out to prove that he can neither run a publication nor an internet website

If I had 4G it would be great, but I don't

bilk's Review of New Republic

Reviewed on 12/17/18 1:09 PM

I like to read at home and in that case the new version is as good as any other mag I have seen and better than most. Other reviewers have noted that the issue cannot be downloaded. If this is true it really limits my ability to read anywhere else since I read on a first generation IPad with only WI-FI connectivity. Have to find something else in a car, on the lam, in a office waiting for exam, on a plane, in a boat, riding on an elevator, guess I'll have to wait 'til later

Worse than terrible

How difficult can it be these days to make authentication work? I know my username, email address, and password. I can login via the web but these pieces of info fail me when I use the app. I will end my subscription after many years because life is short and other mags have figured this step out. A sure sign to me that TNR is headed to the digital dustbin.
