Description

Enjoy a complete issue of the acclaimed weekly on your iPad each Monday—every story, every cartoon, everything in the print edition and more. The app comes with a sample table of contents; you can buy single issues, or subscribe and receive new issues as they’re released. If you’re already a subscriber, just log into the app to access your subscription.  (All subscribers can also access the web archive — every issue since 1925 — by logging into archives.newyorker.com.) The New Yorker offers a signature mix of reporting and commentary on politics, international affairs, and the arts, along with fiction, poetry, humor, and cartoons. Founded in 1925, The New Yorker has received more National Magazine Awards than any other magazine. Notable work in recent years includes coverage of the war on terror by George Packer, Jane Mayer, Lawrence Wright, Steve Coll, and Seymour M. Hersh; reports from the front lines of the Middle East by Jon Lee Anderson, Dexter Filkins, and Wendell Steavenson; Malcolm Gladwell on “the tipping point”; Anthony Lane on movies; James Wood on books; Elizabeth Kolbert on the environment; Atul Gawande on health care; fiction by Jonathan Franzen, Edwidge Danticat, Zadie Smith, and Haruki Murakami; humor by David Sedaris and Andy Borowitz; and cartoons by Roz Chast.

You can store as many issues of The New Yorker as you like on the app and read them whenever and wherever you want, in portrait or landscape view.

One thought on “New Yorker Magazine iPad Subscription

  1. Subscribers beware. It is a Byzantine process to cancel. I have spent hours, and still frustrated. My love of this mag is gone. Any help? Anybody?
