The Times Literary Supplement for PC Description

This iPad edition is a vibrant new way of reading the TLS, the leading paper in the world for literary culture. Its combination of fine writing, literary discoveries, incisive criticism and debate make it mandatory reading for anyone with an interest in the world of ideas. Added to this are beautiful images, a user-friendly search function and app-only features, with the promise of further enhancements to come. The TLS has been reviewing the books that matter and examining the ideas that resonate since its launch in 1902. From fiction to philosophy, religion to medicine, social studies to film, TLS readers enjoy the most informed criticism of culture from around the world. Subscriptions include access to back issues. The TLS app is free to download and can be accessed in the following ways: 1) If you have a subscription to the TLS, you can log in using the information sent to you by the subscriptions house. 2) You can buy individual issues or a monthly auto-renewing subscription from iTunes. Individual issues are available for £2.99 and the monthly subscription is £7.99. The subscription renews automatically unless auto-renew is turned off at least twenty-four hours before the end of the current period. The account will be charged for renewal within twenty-four hours before the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal. You can manage your subscription and turn off auto-renewal by going to Account Settings after purchase.

  • I guess I’m not the target user, but who is?

    While I so far I haven’t had the login issues that others have reported, I have substantial complaints: 1. I prefer to select what to read based on the topic and author of the books being reviewed, but that information is deeply buried. Thematic heads like “SCIENCE” are often too broad to help. 2. The information that is prominent in the table of contents includes reviewers’ names that I only sometimes recognize, and review titles, selected for cleverness rather than utility. 3. In print, I read a bit of the review, then look at who the reviewer is, and return to the review. In the app, this is a cumbersome process. 4. On my iPad, the app will orient to landscape from either side, but portrait only one way, and not the way that would be most useful.

    Worst. App. Ever. Have been a subscriber for so many years, yet must re-sign in constantly and do not always have necessary info at hand. Joan Sindall Cambridge MA
  • Reader Hostile

    I subscribed to the TLS, yet am continually asked to buy the issue. There is no clear sign in option. This is an easy fix they seem unable to make.

    This app is very finicky. Requires repeated logging in and out, activating over and again. Wrote to them about it. Not much improvement if any. Still, manageable but could be much better. 2 years later--the same exasperating problems that make this useless. I still read paper but when I NEED a link, this useless app gets in the way. And years later still no improvement. Do they care?

    Will not allow subscribers to log in! Ridiculous
  • Keep having to redownload issues

    For some time now, and even without the app getting any updates, it seems, I keep losing the issues I had downloaded. It’s a real pain to have to redownload things all the time, never mind that you still get logged out at intervals. Please at least go back to a version that kept the downloads. I love the journal and often like to revisit issues, and seldom get through the whole one within a week.
  • Superb Reviews

    The range of topics is staggering, the depth of knowledge is almost always profound, and the attempt to cover the best and the brightest (often not the most well-known) is constantly impressive. In our Era of World Mediocrity, the historic TLS continues to be a bright beacon of intellectual hope.
  • Consistently good

    Less ideal than print, on line still serves a useful purpose. On my iPad thus far everything works well and the formatting of articles is excellent.
  • Works fine in a pinch

    I prefer the paper — the feel, the smell, the look of it, the turning of its pages and folding it in half to tuck it under my arm as I make my way to wherever I’m not content to be without the TLS by my side — but there are times when I’m finished with the paper or when I haven’t brought it with me, and this app does well to provide a not-too-far-off-from-the-paper satisfaction. It’s not beautiful, as the paper is, but it’s all there. Too, the archive goes way back, so there’s always something new (to me) to read.
  • Loyal to paper, but grateful for app

    By Bagradian
    A longtime subscriber to the hard copy edition, I am still loyal to the paper version but find the app a sensible and practical alternative when I’m on travel. Its main virtues are simplicity, clarity, and - frankly - a direct reflection of the printed version’s structure. Less is more. My only recommendation is to keep the articles’ titles identical to the hard copy edition.
