  • Great content, one big (easy to fix) bug

    By JRanks123
    [update] - thanks so much for fixing the bug! I can, finally, enjoy the NS on my iPhone. Thanks! Excellent quality of journalism but it's infuriating to read on the app because scrolling down always gets misinterpreted as a sideways swipe. As someone with news app development experience myself, this is not a difficult bug to fix. I pay £8 a month and am happy to support your important journalism but please please please fix this. Didn't want to leave the one star but I feel I have no choice...happy to change to 5* once fixed
  • I'm enjoying it

    Suffered severe device envy when I saw my husband had NS on his iPad. Then realised it's free - and really good too - so I have it too now. Still can't interest him in Vogue tho...
  • Text size!

    By can't use the damned thing
    Text size doesn't work, night mode doesn't work.
  • Archiving and text size

    By NewbigginMan
    Unlike the previous version, this new one enables sensible options for how may issues to keep on the iPad: good! However, the text size remains the same (too small) irrespective of which of the 3 'A' options is selected. This problem is on both iPad and iPhone.
  • What's gone wrong?

    By Valveoil
    Can't get this weeks edition. I've deleted the app and reinstalled. Still no joy. Come on chaps, sort it....
  • My favourite weekly read.

    By Johnmadeira
    The New Statesman gives me my weekly U.K. news and politics when I'm travelling around the world. An excellent magazine.
  • Great if it worked

    By Fghhhgff
    Downloaded the first two editions. Then it stopped doing it, why? Who knows. I would like to read it but can I be bothered, not sure.
  • New app

    By sven945
    The previous app was awful. Scrolling down finger movements were hooked as horizontal movement and it meant reading the articles was a nightmare. However the new app fixes this (finally) and it's great. It's gained them a new subscriber.
  • New Statesman

    By Soula19
    I have been a New Statesman reader/subscriber since it absorbed New Society, of which I had been a subscriber from 1971. I have always read the periodical with both pleasure and approval, even in it's more right wing phases. Nevertheless, since 2015 when Jeremy Corbyn took over as Labour Party Leader, I have felt some disappointment at the tone and style of the editorial stance taken by the NS. I am 70 years old, and have been a lifelong socialist and voted against my own personal self interest all my adult life. Yet I have felt that NS has been guilty of being more Blairite than it should be as an impartial arbiter of social justice and socialism generally. Too many of its journalists appear to subscribe to a depressingly right wing mind set and seem to subscribe to the idea that a leader needs to be 'strong and stable' rather than thoughtful and considered. Accusing Mr Corbyn of dithering and bullying and other incompetence is profoundly not helpful either. I would be prepared to accept its stance if journalists could offer real evidence of these behaviours and not the spin of the rest of the media pack. I continue to subscribe because the writing is generally of such a high standard and much of its political and philosophical stance is admirably open and impartial. I enjoy many of its regular contributors, though I find some vaguely irritating, particularly those such as Nicholas Lezard. I am also sad that some of the feel of the old New Society was squashed so completely.
