  • Update is a dud

    By iGreeley
    Now the greatest weekly content feels like a B- blog. Content is great, but the functionality and appearance stinks. How could this be put out as an update? Who thought this was an improvement?
  • Upgrade

    By ChevBaer22
    I thought the new update is much easier to navigate! No more unnecessary functions!
  • Unbelievably bad update.

    By Matterss67
    The update is so incredibly bad. Here are some things I am no longer able to do: I cannot read the 10 things I need I need to know offline. This was key to me as a business traveler as I would update the article list before boarding and would have it available during flight. Nope, no more. Update: the functionality of this is 50/50. Sometimes the option to read the “latest news” is there, other times it is not. Another thing I really enjoyed was the ability to share articles with friends and family instantly. Well, the new update eliminates that feature too. What was a great advertisement to friends now is a link to sell them the mag - a forced sales pitch. Great job. The new format is obnoxious at the opening screen. Everything is clunky and loads slowly. The pictures in various articles, some you can see full screen when you tap on them, but others, you cannot. Absolutely awful. Sometimes I am able to “turn/flip” pages, other times I am only able if I scroll to top of article - who approved the release of this app in such a state?! I honestly will be ending my iPad subscription and will revert to the paper copy from my local library. The new update is that bad. Disgusted. Sent from my iPad
  • New app incomprehensible

    By jotyea
    I’m another long-time Week subscriber, and I still value its content as much as I ever have, but this new app format is an insult. There’s not one feature or function in it that feels like an improvement. Everything about the new app makes it harder to read, harder to navigate, less useful, and less friendly. I also plead for a return to the old format, or at least, something closer to it.
  • 1 star is too many

    By jstrater
    App does not work on my iPad
  • At least the old app worked

    By Jsofnbiodko a
    Some articles load, some take forever.
  • Revised: Arrgh! Wish I hadn’t updated the app!

    By Fizzicyst
    Weighting content more heavily than implementation, 4.5*. Here’s why I’m knocking off a full star: Updating app permanently removed my saved articles. Developers: look up meaning of word “save”. Incorporate that concept into transitions. Software development 101, people—users want to keep their data. Other apps do it. Ask Apple or someone if you don’t know how to code it. Publishers: demand that your app development team delivers a product worthy of your content. Don’t let them screw up this way. So, still 1 star for a rocky update transition. 3 stars for the new app itself—mostly changes to formatting. No significant change in user experience other than nuisance of slightly different reading/saving workflow. Yeah, I need another unnecessary learning curve on my iPhone pretty much like I need another hole in my head. Think when you rewrite a user interface, people. Try to make the user’s transition experience seamless. 5 stars for content. The Week’s still my go-to one-stop shop for what’s going on out in the big bad world, executive summary version. Decent international coverage compared to other weeklies. Thoughtful editorial harvesting. Josh Redding commented once in a talk that this is the 45 minutes he spends to catch up on all the stories he isn’t working on himself so he doesn’t come of as an uninformed over-focused idiot at Washington cocktail parties. That pretty much sums it up: The news you need in a hurry. Good work there, keep it up. Previous review: iTunes subscription on iPad/phone, latest issue came up last night. I started to download it & the message about updating to the new app came up. So I updated and restored purchases as told. Now all the past issues show up and can be downloaded *except* only last week’s issue appears (March 1, ostrich cover) with View & Subscribe options. No latest issue. And I’ve lost all my saved articles...!!! Come on, guys, test your app updates before you release them.
  • Great magazine, terrible app update

    By AwesomeDanner
    If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, especially if the fix is not a fix, but is instead a way to drive away readers. I LOVE THE WEEK, and have been a loyal customer for years. Never saw a need to update the app. In fact, it was one of my more enjoyable reading experiences on the iPad. With this new update, plain and simple, it doesn’t work. I am able to download issues, but when I open them, the cover is the only thing that will actually load. Since I am a “digital only” subscriber, I have not been able to read this publication since the update. If this update is not fixed by the time my subscription lapses, I unfortunately will not be resubscribing. Please fix this, and give me back The Week!
  • App still stinks

    By Uuungfrrvbh
    Good magazine, app is still awful. Not user friendly and slow. Old revision of app was way better.
  • Give me back the old app

    By rsagall
    Latest upgrade hasn’t fix the problems. I get the cover and article titles on pages, but no text. Great content, lousy app,
