Android App Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get the app?

You can download the app from Google Play.

If you choose to subscribe within the app you will be taken to our print subscription page to complete the transaction, after which you can return to the app to sign in.

Which versions of Android does the app work on?

Version 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and later.

I’m an LRB print subscriber. How do I read the magazine on my Android device?

Once you’ve downloaded the app tap in the top right of the screen and select ‘Account’. Choose ‘Existing Subscriptions’ and then enter your email and password details. These should be the same details that you use to log into the LRB website.

If you’ve forgotten your password you can reset it. If you still can’t log in please email us and we will respond as soon as we can.

How can I subscribe or buy an issue through the app?

Unfortunately, Android and Kindle users can’t currently purchase single issues or app-only subscriptions. To read issues with the app, you will need to purchase a print subscription first.

To buy a subscription, click on the subscribe link on the homepage of the app. This will take you to our website, where you can buy a print subscription. Once you have activated your account on the LRB website (using the instructions that will be sent to you as part of your subscription) you can use the same details to log into the app.

If I have a Kindle subscription does this automatically include a subscription to the app, and vice versa?

No. Kindle subscribers are not eligible to receive free access to the app unless they also have a print subscription. Likewise, purchasing a subscription through the app does not enable you to access the Kindle edition.

Do I get access to the archive on the LRB website if I subscribe through the app?

Yes. Issues on the Android app can only be accessed by print subscribers; if you try to purchase a subscription through the app you will be redirected to the print subscription page. You will therefore be able to access the online archive as well as the app with the email and password details you set after subscribing.

If you have any other queries that are not answered by this list please contact us via email at app@lrb.co.uk and we will respond to your question as soon as we can.
