  • Rip off

    By kytjtfjy
    My husband purchased the subscription through the app. We have family Sharing turned on and it’s an app feature. But it does NOT work. Don’t expect to share the Atlantic if you purchase through the App Store. Total rip off. You can’t even live chat to problem solve. Just get a “no account” message. Don’t purchase through the App Store.
  • Okay

    Love that one can adjust the font size on this app. My biggest frustration is losing my place while using this app: if I switch over to a different app, I lose my place in the article and/or magazine.
  • Inexplicably uncooperative

    By TruOptimist
    I have been a subscriber to the Atlantic magazine for over 30 years. Today, I am lying in bed sick and I thought I would use my iPad to read the Atlantic online. I am told that it needs an update and I should go to the App Store. I go to the App Store and apparently it is already updated. I reopen the Atlantic software and I'm told I need to go to the App Store. What is the point of having all these devices if we spend our entire lives updating every app every day? What a waste of my time. No, I am not going to unsubscribe. I am just going to voice my frustration that one of the few ethical bastions of journalism is giving me the runaround with their stupid app.
  • No longer functions on I-pad

    By Will h3
    No longer works on my I-Pad. Tells me an update is required but none is available. Has been this way for more than two months. unacceptable, especially for a paid subscription!
  • lame handling of mandatory upgrade

    By elektronen
    New version of app requires iOS 10, but for those stuck at iOS 9 (original iPad Mini), last 'compatible' version of app is offered, but then this pops up 'update required' over and over after you launch the app, until you give up. This is a sucky way to handle this - just tell your users of barely-obsolete tech upfront that they can piss off.
  • Can’t access saved articles offline

    By CHR-Seattle
    On my iPhone 7+ with iOS 10, I saved 3 articles to read offline later. When I went to read them offline, I was told no articles were saved. In settings, however, it says I have saved 3 articles using a total of several MB. So they are there but not accessible. Frustrating. Other than that sore point, I’m generally happy with the app. Love the content.
  • Only works if you have iOS-10

    By Pebble 57 user
    Works fine on my iPhone, with iOS-10, but not on iPad which for some reason I can't upgrade to iOS-10.
  • No offline reading

    By Matthew PDX
    I’m a magazine subscriber and since the newest release I haven’t been able to read the articles offline on my iPad. The app works well when connected to WiFi but if you’re like me and use your iPad for reading on flights then it’s a complete waste of time. I’ve been hopeful they were going to release a fix by now and I’ll change my review/rating as soon as this major flaw is fixed.
  • C'mon. Fix the app!

    By Masoon2313
    I can't get new subscription or my archived versions. How hard can this be? Seriously.
  • Magazine is great - but this app is far below sub-par

    By BayouJefe
    Rather than listing complaints, suffice to say that over the 2 years, it seems that everything that can wrong, goes wrong. Blank screens, current episodes unavailable, and limited help. For such a great and esteemed magazine, it’s shocking how bad the app is
