  • Content is amazing, new app is horrible

    By Greg089
    App redesign (Nov 2019) makes browsing for articles pure frustration. Each one fills a whole screen for just the headline and links. Normal news app shows about 6-8 in the same amount of space. Makes me want to quit reading, completely takes the joy out of finding the articles I want to read.
  • The new update is amazing!!!

    By MD Aupont
    Love the design and functionality!! This is one of my favorite apps for catching up on current news!
  • Harder to Read

    By reallycg
    New design seems to favor form over function. Larger fonts and heavier emphasis on editors’ picks on the main screen make it harder (for this reader, at least) to evaluate and select what to read. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
  • Excited to read again

    By Cordavi
    Since the redesign, I’ve found I actually want to check the app each day. The content feels more thoughtfully presented and gives me a couple of ideas to think about on my commute. I actually find myself wanting to open and read some of the full articles now. So the redesign is a big win for me.
  • Favorite news app by far

    By fastfan
    So excited to experience The Atlantic’s refreshed style and function. The app is refined and serves up some great ideas that makes it stand apart from other newsfeeds. Rather than reading just the headline and scrolling, I engage, think about how much time I have and choose what I want to spend my time on. It finally feels like The Atlantic.
  • Redesign just so-so

    By aba6074
    The home page redesign just doesn’t cut it for me. Too much white space and relatively big images which leads to a lot of scrolling to figure out the content. A more concise design and at a glance overview would have been better. To me there was nothing wrong with the old home page design. I also would like a separate “dark mode on/off” setting within the app so that it is possible to set the mode independently of the general settings. I prefer to read black on white no matter what time of day but would like to keep the rest of my apps set to the general setting and not always switch back and forth.
  • The redesign is a downgrade

    By Erica9881
    I want to be able to scroll through a bunch of article titles and very brief summaries — I don’t want to be forced through large volumes of text.
  • Appreciate the redesign

    By Robbo19832001
    Love the new version. Long overdue. Good content as well. Left leaning but only occasionally over-the-top leftist.
  • Background Audio Stops

    By jflow23
    New update is ok...interface will take some getting used to. My frustration is that background audio is not working properly on my device post update. Audio plays for a minute or two then stops if the screen goes dark or if I switch apps. I like to listen in the car on short commutes...not working.
  • Great update!

    By wasthataparable
    This app is delightful to use, and the new update looks and feels beautiful. I especially love the new dark mode!!
