Awesome magazine with an unacceptable app The new version has some improvements. It now loads on my sony tablet s where it used to hang. It appears to refresh with new issues and updates. But images cant be resized and text cant be changed or resized.and displays on my tablet as a tight unreadable blob. It may look better on other tablet sizes or resolutions but its crap on mine.
What happened? It no longer works! I only get the spiny wheel of death showing that it's loading... for hours! I used to LOVE reading Harper's articles using my subscription - now there's no way I can even access them! You seriously wanted to destroy this app, Harper's?
Unable to login Grrr. I'm unable to log in using the same information that works on the website. Also, I was irritated to find that one must download an issue. I like the idea of a download option for off-line reading, but would much prefer to read things within the actual app unless i choose to download. Also, the interface couldn't be less attractive. Harper's, I love you dearly and will always support your print magazine, but if a magazine is to keep up it's relevancy today, it must have at least a mediocre app.Please!
A blank white screen with the spinning "wait" arrow. My corgi could do better.
When I first downloaded this app it was functional, then it became progressively worse and worse. Now they are discontinuing its use and want you to just use the mobile website. Why not just go back in the updates when it functioned? Also, in the paper issues they now do things like gluing advertisements to the middle of an article, which tears up the paper, making it impossible to read.
Latest update doesn't let me sign in with my legit credentials. Does anybody test these apps at Harpers? Sad that such an excellent mag can't find decent app designers.
We are pleased to announce a completely rewritten app for Harper’s Magazine.
This update features faster download times and an improved off-line mode. You can now read an issue almost immediately without waiting for it to download in full, and our app is now more resilient in low signal areas such as the subway or BART.
Thank you for your feedback on the app and for reading the Harper’s app!
