iOS App Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get the app?

You can download it from the iTunes store.

Do I have to subscribe in order to purchase individual issues?

No, once you’ve downloaded the app you can purchase app editions of individual issues through your iTunes account. This doesn’t require an LRB subscription.

What do I get when I subscribe to the app through iTunes?

If you subscribe through the app, instead of taking out a print subscription, you will gain access to the current issue, new issues and all the back issues in the app. Subscriptions will renew automatically unless cancelled more than 24 hours before the end of the current subscription period. Once the subscription ends you won’t be able to download any more issues, but you will still be able to read any issues you have previously downloaded onto your device. However, if you archive an issue, or delete and reinstall the app, you won’t be able to download them again.

What if I already have a print subscription?

If you are a print subscriber then all issues available in the app will be available for you to download for free. All you have to do to access them is download the app from the iTunes store and enter your existing LRB login details.

How do I subscribe through the app?

I am not a print subscriber.

Tap in the top right of the screen and select ‘Account’. Choose ‘App Store Purchases’ and you can then purchase an app-only subscription through iTunes using the appropriate button. You can also purchase single issues by clicking ‘Buy’ on any issue cover on the ‘All Issues’ page.

I am a print subscriber.

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 I have a Kindle subscription, does this automatically include a subscription to the app?

No. Kindle subscribers are not eligible to receive free access to the app unless they also have a print subscription.

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

No. Subscribing through the app does not enable you to access the LRB online archive, or to receive a print subscription.

How do I restore my subscription if I have deleted the app and bought a new device, or want to use the app on another device that is linked to the same iTunes account?

Tap the icon in the top right of the home screen and select ‘Account’. Choose ‘App Store Purchases’. You can then restore previously purchased issues using the appropriate button.

How do I remove previously downloaded issues from the app?

To delete a downloaded issue press and hold on the cover image of the issue you wish to archive. The option to remove it should then appear. You can also set issues to be archived automatically after a certain period of time in the general ‘Settings’ menu.

Can I change the text size in the app?

Yes. Tap in the top right of the screen and select ‘Settings’ then ‘General’. You can change the text size from there.

I have forgotten my username/password for logging into the LRB website and app.
