The New Yorker 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 205 reviews.

The New Yorker is one of my favorite magazines and up until this week (the Aug. 6 2012 issue) the format on my Nook Tablet was really wonderful. Easy to navigate and easy to read. But this week they changed the format, making the print MUCH SMALLER and without an option to increase the font size. It practically makes it unreadable for someone like me with vision issues. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK!

The August 6th edition is so small that it is almost unreadable on my Nook tablet. It was fine up until this edition.

My rating has to do with the reader technology around the magazine, not the content. The content is a 5 star in my book. It is the reader for it that has needed work, at least on the Nook tablet. I was a little skeptical of digital subscriptions to magazines, but I decided to try out the New Yorker anyway. In the past, I barely kept up with monthly print subscriptions, much less a weekly, but having it at my fingertips was very helpful. At first, the New Yorker used a reader called "AMV" that seemed to make it fairly easy to navigate through this magazine. It tied itself back to the table of contents, but it lacked a bookmarking system to ensure that it remembered where you were if you had to reboot or switched to reading a book or other magazine. I do a lot of research on my Nook because of the great markup features, as well the ability to jump between 5 or 6 books, following a topic. (I also use it to keep up with authors who publish novels in series and eReaders are the best way to make sure I don't miss a book in the series, like Game of Thrones.) I liked AMV, even though it was quirky and crashed a bit too often. Then, the format changed to one similar to an actual book. I think it wss using Adobe eReader itself. While not aesthetically appealing , it was very usable. Then, this month (Oct 2013), the magazine went to a viewer that appears as "Nook magazine" . This one gives the impression of really reading a magazine through a page turning animation in the interface, but there appears to be little built-in navigation. It has a nice feature called Article View (tm) that enlarges the article (a nice feature that AMV lacked) that allows me to flip from article to article, ignoring ads for the most part. It also remembers my place in the current article I am reading. Unfortunately, it has no way to easily jump to that article when I start reading the magazine again, nor is there a way to jump back and forth between table of contents and the next article I want to read. Worse, I cannot jump to a specific page either, at least not that I can find in the upper and lower bars of the reader. I am not the type to just flip through an entire magazine, as I have to prioritize how I read it. My time is limited and I want to get to specific content first, then work my way around the magazine after that if time permits. Some of that is because I use my Nook to do research, but some of it is because I tend to very busy. So, with great sadness, I canceled my subscription after trying the new reader for 3 weeks, and getting very little out of a truly wonderful magazine. I am going to find another digital way to read it instead.

Love the magazine, HATE THE FORMAT. It was great until Sept. 21 edition, then the format reverted and NONE of the extras are available any longer,  plus the font is teensy. Also hard to flip through...must go page by page. Cartoons used to be available separately,  if you wished, and the contest allowed you to vote or enter your own caption in the contest...but no more. I recently learned after MUCH research that the format's regressive change was the fault of B&N, and that they have no plans to fix this. GRRRR! My advice: If you want the New Yorker online, get a Kindle or iPad. I LOVE my Nook, but I am beyond disappointed with this complete failure regarding TNY and the silence from B&N despitem my queries and concerns.    by

The latest Nook version of the New Yorker -- which is 5-star content -- is lame compared to the older one. The new version, started up in October, offers none of the cool extras or unique digital programming the old version carried. What a letdown.

I prefer the previous web design and its hyperlinks . The new format is not as accessible; I'm less inclined to even continue this subscription since Borowitz can no longer beeasily accessed.

I love the magazine, but hate reading it on my Nook. The font is very small and cannot be changed. There is also no page memory unlike every other magazine I have a Nook subscription to. It always goes bsck to the covrer when I close it. I really wish these things would be corrected. Based on other reviews they have been known issues for a while and I would love to be able to read this magazine on my Nook.

It used to be more of an app -- the ToC was a direct launch site to articles, there were audio and video contents, it was the weekly magazine and more. For the last few issues, it's just like any other digital magazine -- pretty much just the print version. Kind of a letdown. Still a great magazine, but there's no reason to not just get a print subscription.

The latest version of the New Yorker is completely without any extras (those little red markers) where you can tap and get additional info or multimedia. Might was well buy the print version as to get this. If all you care about are the articles themselves then I guess you won't mind.

I love The New Yorker; excellent writing and topics. The single star rating is for the nook platform, not the magazine. I have read the subscription on my nook first edition every week for the last 18 months. In the last two weeks, the issues have been 4-5 days delayed. I've called technical support four times; the resounding recommendation: "just wait longer." I cannot recommend purchasing the New Yorker for nook if it is delivered late and the tech support is unhelpful. To add insult to injury, my husband can receive the issues on time on his Kindle.

I love The New Yorker and the digital version was great until the Aug. 6, 2012 issue killed it for me with the Nook. Type was too small to read for this issue. Emailed The New Yorker's digital subscription dept. with a complaint and got no response. Switching to iPad version for future issues.

The latest issue, August 6, on my Nook Tablet had a definite reduction in quality including the audio/videos not working. Has there been a change in service? I love the old format and don't want to loose it. Thanks

This product will not load properly on the Nook Color because B&N will not upgrade their software to work with the New Yorker software. You will not get any of the digital extras. Reading an article with this software is very trying.

The new format for The New Yorker on NOOK is terrible. Gone are all of the digital features that made receiving The New Yorker on my tablet such a pleasure. No more hearing the poets reciting their poems; no more look at the comics first; no more daily updates; no more extra content. When the change first occurred, I contacted both B&N and The New Yorker to try to determine who caused the change. In the beginning, each blamed the other. Recent posts to the B&N member chat site suggests that B&N made the decision to no longer support the software that gave us all of the earlier, digital features. All of those features continue to people receiving the electronic version on the iPad. This was an awful change that diminishes my enjoyment of The New Yorker, and of my NOOK, significantly. I hope B&N will change the format back.

I have been receiving the New Yorker for 1 1/2 years now, and it works perfectly. I'm able to archive old  issues and retrieve them when I want. I can change font size easily. While I favor the paper version, the ease and convenience of being able to read and recall older issues of the New Yorker alone makes the Nook indispensable. I would, however, like to be able to perform a search of all of my news stand items. As it is, you can only search within a particular issue of a periodical. If they made it a bit more like a computer in this regard, they may well have perfected it.

I love The New Yorker on the Nook tablet and Simple Touch. I just received my new Nook HD with its New Yorker cover and was very excited to read all my favorites. But after visiting the store and some time with tech support it has been confirmed that this magazine does not yet work on the Nook HD. Very disappointing oversight from BN and Conde Nast. I hope they get it up and running soon.

Fail. Issues are not being delivered. It's not my nook, it's your system B & N. Clueless customer service, too.

After regularly getting the NEW YORKER at 630AM Monday morning for over 10 months, this week it still is not available Tuesday at 5PM!! No one at B&N or THE NEW YORKER can explain why it is not available or when it will be available. This seems to be typical poor customer service at B&N. When something goes wrong, there is no one to help!

I'm canceling my subscription to the New Yorker because even though I love the content, I find the Nook app just a pain to use. I may go back to reading it on the Kindle.

The digital New Yorker is now formatted better to fully fit screen size, making for easier reading, and also includes interesting extras like article authors reading aloud or discussing interviews.

I absolutely LOVE the format of this magazine. So easy to read. So easy to move through. So, so.....easy to LOVE. Every magazine should follow your lead. After a long time with my Nook Color - this is the first magazine I purchased after the 2 week free trial period!

Saves paper, etc to get the digital version. I like that they put even the comics on NOOK version so you can still see them. Wish it was cheaper though -- there's no printing costs!
