Introducing The Psychologist app

Available as a free download for iOS and Android.

The Psychologist app is available from the following stores:

It is free to download, and it provides our readers with an improved way of accessing our content on devices (Apple and Android, smartphone and tablet). Our monthly edition is joined by the occasional 'special'. Users are able to download editions for offline reading, search, share, and add content to a personal scrapbook. 

We hope to add multimedia content and other features to the app in future, but at the moment this is an app designed with current resources in mind. 

Members of the British Psychological Society get complete access to the app using their web log in details. Enter them by tapping on the head icon when you first open the app, and then you should remain signed in and enjoy all the content as a benefit of your membership. There are links under your account settings for if you have not yet set up a web log in, or have forgotten your details. Any other problems, email [email protected].

Non-members are advised to check out our various grades of membership, but app users will also be able to purchase individual editions and annual subscriptions through the various stores. Fans of open access can rest assured we will continue to carry plenty of freely available content on The Psychologist website.

Please let us know what you think of the app: tweet @psychmag or e-mail comments to the editor on [email protected].

Helpful to have on-line access to the Psychologist, but would be even more helpful if the access included full-text, including letters to the editor.

I have downloaded the App onto my Android tablet and find it very useful. I cannot, however, find any way to get it onto my iPad Air 2. Could you tell me if this might be a failing on my behalf or is there something wrong with the process.

Apologies for the late response. Did you manage to sort it out? If you go to the app store on your iPad, you should be able to install it just fine. Email me on [email protected] if you have problems.
