App Reviews

  • Not at all ready for small screen

    1
    By Flinkywood
    Pages emulate magazine layout and are not optimized for small screen. 2-tap inflates text beyond screen. Impossible to finagle into readability. Same with iPad. Print also incompatible with Retina display and mildly blurry. I instantly regretted this buy. Asked for and received a refund, which took multiple calls and disconnections. Those tasked with supporting this app knew little about it. Great publication, on paper.
  • Poor app

    Poorly designed app. Hides content and attempts to take you to the website, which requires a different subscription. The app should display your library of issues. But that's blurred out and in the background. FT customer service is unhelpful and will refer any request for help to iTunes. They even claimed I didn't have a subscription. Right. I bet there's a big black market for FT subscriptions.
  • Thoughtfully written and beautifully presented

    Still the premiere journal of religion and public life, First Things is a pleasure to read even when standing in vehement disagreement to various perspectives elucidated within (and contrary to some perceptions, there are various perspectives represented within the Great Tradition, Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox). The format makes both browsing and reading a real delight on the iPad, with back issues available for easy perusal and current editions appearing in a timely way.
  • Great content, finally on iPhone

    I would love to be able to access First Things on my primary device, my iPhone, but I am not able to. I was told that the iPhone's display was "too small to appreciate the content." I consume content on my iPhone all day long. And, iPhones have bigger displays now. Can we please get First Things on iPhone? Edit: You can now get First Things on iPhone!
  • Great mag

    Longtime subscriber, loving the share feature
  • Poor app

    Non-reflowable text is user-hostile & makes this app difficult to impossible to use on an iPad mini. If your app is just PDFs then just email people PDFs instead. Better yet, make a proper app.
  • Looks good, no links

    Wonderful publication, looks great on the iPad, but I would really like to see links to the articles incorporated into the table of contents or the menu. It's a little thing, but that's how you make a Apple Newsstand publication look really professional.
  • Fantastic!

    I have not used previous versions of the First Things newsstand app, but the current version looks excellent on the iPad.
  • Good Luck Loop

    1
    By JKJoseph05
    This application has lots of potential for new accounts, but for those of us that have been long time faithful print subscribers, it is useless. Beware of the loop. Initial call to First Things refers subscriber to Apple for solution and wished "good luck". After contacting Apple, the subscriber is referred back to First Things. And so the looping begins. Good luck accessing your digital subscription of First Things using the First Things app.
  • Can't Access on iPad

    By J Dawgistaken
    It seems to me that the point of having a digital subscription is that it should be accessible on your iPad. But this turned out not to be the case for me. Their customer support was no help. Had to cancel. Too bad. It's a great magazine.
