  • Good magazine, terrible app

    By Hampsterpillar
    Great, intelligent articles from conservative viewpoints. Terrible mess of an app. Sometimes partial articles load, sometimes nothing loads but a space where an ad clearly wants to be. That’s when it doesn’t just crash to white. It’s a testament to the content that I haven’t uninstalled yet, but that’s unlikely to last much longer.
  • Ads Interfere

    By bjhobar
    I gave up on the Kate O. article due to ads interfering with the flow. Maddening! What is going on?
  • Much worse than expected

    By TL817
    The app does not remember my login info, so blasts me with ads and expects me to follow a very convoluted login process every time. Takes forever to locate the forgot password capability. Very disappointed in the quality of the app compared to the quality of the content. If I could find the customer service link, I would ask for my $ back.
  • Great writing. Horrible coding.

    By Quahuitli
    The NRO app is as if you hired the graduates of Hillsdale college to write about political philosophy (excellent) and then you also hired Hillsdale graduates to develop an app and website (horrible). The app is maddeningly slow and hogs your devices resources. It reminds you that English majors can really articulate an idea, but they really can’t build anything.
  • Works but that’s about it

    By ImaHog
    1. You have to download each article one-by-one; no single button to download all in one push. 2. No font size selection 3. No column selection. You must read across a wide page for every line. Not like a real magazine. 4. You can’t continue on to the next article like a real magazine. 5. No night mode for reverse video. Forced to read in glaring black and white. 6. No easy way to terminate your cc auto pay at the end of the year. Don’t use this product

    Thanks for in-depth, factual, and comprehensive articles and commentary. Wish more news outlets would follow suit.
  • Ads block everything.

    By robotmax64
    Ads and even video ads make the app too difficult to use.
  • The ads seize control of this app, making it unreadable

    By MTMatelski
    I’m a longtime NR subscriber, and am pining for the days of the paper magazine. This app is simply atrocious; I would give it zero stars if that were an option. The navigation is awkward, and when downloading then PDF version of the magazine for use offline (as in traveling in airplane mode), the app always manages to dump the file. The worst part, however, are the intrusive ads, which completely hijack the app: I will be reading an article, one of these things pops up and covers the whole page, and there’s no way to get rid of it other than to close and restart the app. As a PAID subscriber, I find this inexcusable; Bill Buckley must be turning over in his grave to behold this turkey.
  • Common sense

    By PolishPilgrim
    The short, insightful articles blend common sense with Founding Fathers wisdom and deep moral roots. The format is good, too.
  • Your app

    By J. Harriman
    Your app is glitchy and your server slow, slow, sssslllloooowwww! Not to mention, to fraudulently your server freezes or the app just crashes. It’s annoying enough that I don’t come here to read your writers very often anymore. Sad really, since I’ve been reading NR since the early 80’s when in grad school.
