Android App Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get the app?

You can download the app from Google Play here.

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

What versions of Android does the app work on?

Version 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and later.

I’m a 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 access the LRB website.

If you’ve forgotten your password you can reset it at here. If you still have problems please contact us at app@lrb.co.uk and we will respond as soon as we can.

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

Unfortunately Android and Kindle users cannot purchase single issues or app only subscriptions at this time. To access the app editions, you will ned to purchase a print subscription with us first.

To purchase a subscription, you must click on the subscribe advert on homepage of the app. This will take you to our website to purchase a print subscription. Once you have registered your email and password against the print subscription (using the instructions that will be sent to you as part of your purchase) you can use those same details to sign-in to the app.

If I have a standard 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. It is also the case that purchasing a subscription through the app does not entitle you to access the Kindle edition.

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

Yes. Because the Android app can only be accessed by people with a current print subscription (you will be redirected to buy one when purchasing through the app) you will also be able to access the online archive with the email and password details you set after purchasing.

If you have any other queries that are not covered in this list please contact us via email at app@lrb.co.uk and we will try and answer your question as soon as we can.
