The Harper’s Magazine Android App Is Here

Introducing the Harper’s Android app

Harper's Magazine for Android

Dear Readers,

We’re pleased to announce that a dedicated Harper’s Magazine app is now available for download in the Google Play store.

Print subscribers with Android smartphones or tablets will be able to read Harper’s on their devices free of charge, while other readers around the world will be able to subscribe and purchase single issues on their devices. All those who subscribe through the app will also receive access to the magazine’s 164-year online archive, and subscribers in the United States and Canada will receive the print edition free, as well.

We developed both our Android app and our iOS app in partnership with 29th Street Publishing, to whom we owe great thanks. We’ll be working with them in the coming months to add new features, and to make your experience with the app as smooth as possible.

In the short term, we hope you’ll draw our attention to any bugs you encounter, whether in the comments below or by emailing us at app@harpers.org. And if you like what you see, please take the time to add a rating in the Play store

To learn more about the app or for help, please visit harpers.org/android. Thanks!

    Not seeing any option to verify my credentials in the app as a subscriber…

    • http://harpers.org/ Harper’s Magazine

      You should be seeing “Sign in” at top right when you’re brought to the library upon opening the app. If you’re not, please send us a note at app@harpers.org and we’ll investigate.

        You can’t download the app without first paying a sub fee, unless I’m missing something.

        • http://harpers.org/ Harper’s Magazine

          No, the download is definitely free. Did you access it via the link above? (There is also a PDF-replica edition of Harper’s sold by Google through its Newsstand, which is different from the app and might require payment first.)

            Got it, signed in easily, already consuming mass quantities of excellent content. Thank you!

          • scfritts

            Got it, I was looking at the newsstand section. Thanks.

  • T. Andersen

    I input my email and password used for the website 3x and the GP did not recognize. I then found last paper issue and input subsc. # and it worked. Will each new issue be delivered automatically (like New Yorker, Economist)? If not ,what day of month is a new issue available through the app.?

    • http://harpers.org/ Harper’s Magazine

      New issues will come out within a day of the in-home date for the print edition, which is typically the second or third Wednesday of every month.

Driving Mr. Albert

He could be one of a million beach-bound, black-socked Florida retirees, not the man who, by some odd happenstance of life, possesses the brain of Albert Einstein — literally cut it out of the dead scientist's head.
