I’m thinking the developers are not finished…
I cannot see my ‘account’ features via the app. I cannot make changes. I cannot see the credit card being used to pay for my subscription. I cannot find anything about the auto-renewal feature and just hope I receive an email at some point PRIOR to being charged for a subscription I may not want because of this kind of hassle. I cannot do anything on this app but read articles and in 2022, I should be able to everything via the app without having to talk to a human to make changes. I would like more information via the app so I can make informed decisions without having to call and think through things with someone I don’t even know. If I have to call to find out information that even may bank has accessible, I will likely cancel on the ‘hassle principal.’ I love the New Yorker but it is 2022 and as long as the billionaires and Corporate Citizens are going to ‘FAKE INFLATION’ so they can have more money, I may not CHOOSE to afford a billionaire’s publication.

Don’t count on using this away from Wi-Fi
The New Yorker is one of my favorite things to read on a trip. But if you happen to be away from a network on the frequent occasions it checks to see if you have a subscription, you won’t be able to read anything—even downloaded issues—until you connect and authenticate. This is especially perplexing since many of us still subscribe by the year… why then need to authenticate so often?
I’ll also point out that you’d better be very careful how you scroll through an article. If you accidentally shift to the next article, by failing to swipe vertically enough, you’ll swipe back and find your place has been lost.
I love the magazine and having it on an iPad is mostly great. But I wonder if those working on the app have considered some of the very common ways real people actually use it… on a plane, in a park, with human thumbs that swipe on an arc.
