New update breaks offline reading Can no longer open the app if not connected to wifi. Email to support unanswered. Unable to reduce font size and select black background, white text for reading on phone (need tablet for reasonable reading). Harper's should use kindle or something else like the New Yorker.
Doesn't work I have a print subscription and previous versions of the app worked ok. Now there is no way to sign in. Harpers tech support never responded to queries. Don't put out an app if you can't support it!
Much improved Samsung Note 5 w Android 5.x. Had it on my previous HTC and the app was terrible. Log in issues, poor screen utilization, terrible UI. No major issues that I can tell this time.
Fix this please! Renewed my subscription and the app doesn't recognise it. No one responds to emails asking for help. I live in Africa, so this is the only way I can read the magazine. Plenty of people are having this issue. Why isn't someone fixing this?
Impossible to purchase a single issue as the website says is possible. Frankly this is shocking and laughably bad. As the magazine is very poorly circulated outside of big cities this app and the puzzling inability to purchase articles means the already tragically small circulation gets smaller. Is this magazine now just a noblesse oblige vanity project? Welp...that sucks. Other literary and niche publications have managed to adjust over the last 20 years. A real shame only a few college students and city dwellers will read the new Baum piece. From the first paragraph I was graciously provided it looks important.
Doesn't show recent issues or weekly reviews and no way to manually update it. Possibly the worst app I've ever used!
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!
