    From first to worst. Every change in this new release is a disaster - function, usability, visuals, performance, and everything else. Please write a formal apology to your editing staff for destroying their magazine and encouraging readers to leave. Cancel my subscription.
  • App no longer working

    By Jhnsnami
    Long time subscriber even before it was digital. The iPad app usability gets worse and worse with each update. I can open the current week’s issue, but all that comes up is the article title and then it just spins and spins and the article never actually comes up. Would you consider getting an UX expert to help you with design?
  • Mediocre update

    By Nwilla
    long time subscriber, love the publication. If your reading this to judge content i fully recommend. I give 3 stars purely bc of the work, the app itself is like. 1 star. Its rare that an update makes things worse but this did. Aesthetically its uglier and more clunky than the previous version like they removed the polish and sheen from the layout. One thing i always wanted was bookmarking as i force close my apps and always have to cycle back through. This version has it but it doesn’t actually work. I press the star but that does nothing at all. Even “last article read” has no clue what article i read so a big fat boo on that. Locking the options menu on the top is a terrible idea it should go back to only coming up on a long or force touch and preserve real estate. That criticism ties in to Night Mode, which was great but now, even though the article is in night mode the locked options menu on the top is still breaker no but it does show a certain laziness or lack of detail work on a finished product. This is a quality publication that we pay for willingly and even have the option to go digital only, so why wouldn’t we be treated with a high end application befitting of this rather than so junky app reminiscent of a free download circa 2008?
  • Worthless

    By tduncans2
    I was quite happy with TheWeek app until the most recent update. It is now impossible to use. It shows the title of articles but never the bodies of the indicated articles. As is, it does not even merit one star... it is worthless. Please restore the previous version.
  • Latest version is terrible

    By Alexei01
    This was a perfect app that’s been destroyed in usability and functionality. The new setup makes navigation difficult, stories won’t load properly, and there’s no longer any sensible flow to the layout. This is change for change’s sake and a total mess. I love this magazine but will cancel my subscription if they don’t fix this.
  • One of the best mags out there

    By Klkruger
    The worst mag app of any I get - and I get several. Newest iteration is very problematic, buggy, annoying. Don’t bother. Now it’s been over 24 hours and app still won’t restore purchases. Get the paper addition not the digital.
  • Last update completely unusable on iPhone

    By aewzh
    The latest update completely ruins the app on my iPhone. No contents are shown, app keeps refreshing forever without showing a single page.
  • Doesn’t even render text correctly

    By geoelectric
    Look at the kerning in the screenshots, because apparently they didn’t before releasing this garbage.
  • Oops! Back to paper...

    By Ethan Logan
    I've read The Week on-line for years, but their new app is so unpleasant I've gone back to the paper copy. The story I want to read is how they chose to replace a good app with poor font, bad layout, and clunky moving-around....I want the blow-by-blow account of this ridiculous mis-step!

    Please bring back “tap” on a word feature to Select copy, save, define, etc. Also ability to tap and enlarge photos. Would make it 5 stars again!
