Suggesting a Section for Projects

If you’ve searched for The Atlantic on the App Store, you’re aware of the high-level journalism published by the outlet. I’m proud to say that The Atlantic is the only magazine that I’ve (consistently) subscribed to for the last 7 years. And the iOS app befits its standard: clean, straightforward, and neatly organized. The one suggestion I would like to offer is the addition of Projects. The app’s “Sections” tab is nearly identical to the full website, with the exception of Projects. There are no doubt technical reasons for its omission that far exceed my level of understanding. However, The Atlantic’s Projects have long been a favorite feature. 2020’s Shadowland is particularly wonderful. In-app access to the Projects would be a fantastic addition, and I hope to see it in a future update.

Okay app - but could be great

I am a long time subscriber to The Atlantic. I still get the print magazine but honestly do most of my Atlantic reading electronically. I was really excited when I first got the app, but have only been frustrated since. First, it is the most unintuitive app I think I have used in a long time. Having to dig 3 to 4 steps down to even find the magazine edition. It shouldn’t be an expedition to find the most recent magazine. I understand having the feed to read popular articles, but the joy of The Atlantic is “paging” through the magazine to read different articles that I wouldn’t typically click on in a news feed. Second, SEARCH. How can there not be a search function??? Search is one of the most useful reasons to read newspapers and magazines in electronic format. Please, please, please add search function. Third, Font Size. I can’t be alone in the demographics of The Atlantic subscribers in needing glasses or larger fonts to read comfortably. This is probably the second biggest reason to read content electronically instead of the print version. Please add the ability to adjust the size of the font.
I still enjoy The Atlantic and think it is one of the best sources for in depth analysis of current events and culture. However, until these issues are addressed I will probably continue to link to The Atlantic on the internet instead of through the app.

Decent App

This is a good magazine and a decent app. I appreciate the developers fixing the scrolling bug that was so irritating. However, I still would like to be able to search for articles, and wish I had some control of the column width for easier reading. I still prefer to read in Safari sometimes to have better control.

Original Review: Loses place in article

This is a great magazine but I have some problems with the app. First, if you leave in the midst of reading a long article to say, check you email, upon your return the app returns to the top of the article and you lose your place. I’ve never seen another reading app do this! Please fix it. It is so annoying I often read long articles in Safari instead of this app. Second, I’d like to be able to control the margin size in addition to the font size. The column width is too wide on a full-size iPad to be comfortable for me. Otherwise, I find this app easy to navigate and like it.

Developer Response ,

We’ve fixed this bug in the latest 6.1.1 update. Please try it out. Thank you for your patience.
