    The Atlantic content is fantastic, as always. At last, the app does some justice to presenting the content. Bare bones but highly usable, stable, easy nav, article sharing and saves, newly included video content - from which I discovered Atlantic content on YouTube without leaving the app. All a long awaited relief for app users. I read another review - I disagree: I'm glad NOT to have comments and user-based data. The website is for that. Please keep the app clean! As a subscriber, I just want to read unobstructed content with nothing begging for my input or forcing me to work around others'. I work with the articles - save, share, get info from to other sources, quote from for blog posts and discussion. It's nice to open the app instead of just glancing at the Atlantic icon on my iPad and going to the website. I kept the app as a reminder (I enjoy a lot of sources and I lose track). Big thanks to the devs for the desperately needed update!

    This could be a good app. It offers large print. You can have the story read to you as you read along. Yet, you have to get in. I have subscribed to the Atlantic for decades. I love the Atlantic. Yet, I cannot access a story on this app 98% of the time. I open the app. I am offered the chance to buy the latest issue, a story, or to subscribe. I get a magazine and copy my subscription number into the place provided. They then tell me I am already a subscriber. I find the story I want, try to open it -- and I am taken straight back to those 3 choices. When I get in. -- hooray!!! -- i have no idea how or why the app let me in. It is endless. Why bother letting people listen along when they 98% of the time they cannot access the written material? It seems like fixing that, fixing access to subscribers, would be more important.

    The rearrangement is helpful, especially putting Saved in its own section instead of subsumed in the unintuitive Settings Forwarding an article does include the URL. Sometimes in the previous version, the email would have lack the very URL that was supposedly forwarded Easy ability to save magazine articles and build a personal library is also useful However, three shortcomings: First, the magazine should have a table of contents with check boxes so readers can flag what we've read Second, each article should immediately have a link to the comments, as appears when viewing the article through a web browser Third, why are all articles free through a web browser, but no articles are free via the app? $24 for a year when I can read on the same device and even save to a reading list, ...
