NOTE FOR USERS WHO HAVE UPDATED TO ANDROID LOLLIPOP (ANDROID 5.0)
Unfortunately, we are aware that the New Scientist app suffers from a problem when running on Lollipop (Android 5.) that causes it to crash immediately after launch. We are urgently working on a new version of the app that addresses this issue, so please stay tuned for an upgrade to the app.

Having trouble? Email [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help.

Recent changes:

User reviews of New Scientist
I already get the magazine each week but it's nice to have the app too in case of boredom.

"this content is not available for this app" and a link that doesn't open when clicked. Utterly crap.
Oct 13, 2010
Love the content, hate the app. Trys and fails to update all the time and crashes. Needs to be made to work like the Guardian UK app whereby you can download the daily content in one file for review offline
Sep 8, 2010
Browse news stories within the app. (I don't think it supports auto DL over Wifi so that you can browse without internet connection)

like it--pretty fast, regularly updated. FCs are unattractive, tho.

Subscriber Long term subscriber no longer using this app. I don't get why I now have to pay more in subscription to use this app when I can log in and view the site through my phone/ tablet browser for no extra (or just read the print copy I get every week)!
