Bad combination of magazine app and web-like site. Build a real mag app, put it in newsstand. Now.

Buggy as ever. Clicking on the Back button after reading an article crashes the app 100% of the time. Bush league.
Conde Nast knows how to do this, The Atlantic doesn't. If you buy The New Yorker, it shows up in Newsstand, and you get access to all digital issues - even those from before the start date of your subscription.
Way too expensive, and although the content is good, it's also available on the Web - or at the library.

Ever since the new update, I haven't been able to view anything but the help screen. Seems I need to verify my subscription plan, except there was a time not so long ago when some of the essays were available on the app gratis. Pity. The Atlantic app used to be one of my favorite distractions from real work.
