The Atlantic only provides the magazine through Newstand if you buy it from Google ... otherwise you are promised it by Atlantic and then can't get it (just the news feed). Customers Services claim that they deliver the magazine to Android via a browser, which might sound credible to a non-digital Exec (and his lawyer), but in the real world it's not competitive. They should just fess-up that the economics with Google don't allow them to sell it to work on Android. The Customer Service person sounded embarrassed to be required to deliver this lame excuse and refunded part of my subscription. So now I'll just read the physical mag.
Age Maybe this is biased because I'm not the target demographic. This magazine prints the most idiotic, circular logic articles about religion related to Judaism, Christianity. It also contradicts it's self when it quotes certain information and data. It's advise section on the nature of spirituality is almost always false.
I noticed many people are having difficulty viewing or opening the magazine on their devices, but luckily I had no problems opening the magazine on my Android device. I first clicked on the subscribe option, selected the type of subscription I wanted; I entered my Google or Gmail password (which I had to locate :-) ; updated my credit card info ( since I had an old one) ;accepted the purchase, and that's it. Then I realized the app was not installed on my device,but I found on my device an app already installed called "Newstand" and the magazines were hiding in there and it worked. I now can go directly to the magazines using that application without the need to go through all those steps again. I` m a happy camper. As for the magazine, I'm not sure yet since I just made the purchase :-)
Why bother with a "short review"? Just let ur print subscription lapse as I did, the atlantic will blame diminishing readership on everything else but not on its own stupidity in not reading readers' feedback (blowback?) re inability to obtain or access both print and digital versions of îts otherwise excellent mag
Unable to use app. Often, when visiting my doctor or some other such person, it is difficult to bring the print edition, as I am disabled. Today, I decided to download the app. to my mobile for the convenience of having the. magazine with me. I tried every way to enter my account #, name & mailing address as shown on the label.They could not verify my info. I am very disappointed being refused access to the magazine, Now I must contact them to straighten their glitch out. This should have been easy. Grrr!!!
What happened? I was told that I would be able to get an Android app to go with my printed Edition after I subscribed. Edited on Feb 16 to add: OK, people today I noticed that with the newsletter I get everyday from the Atlantic I also received something that made reference to stories within the printed Edition so wondering if this what they meant by mobile app? Please can somebody from the Atlantic Monthly weigh in on this for us? (That we want the mobile app as well, to go with our monthly magazine) I'm very pleased with my printed Edition after being without it for 3 years.
