How do I find the WORLD News Group App?

Search Apple or Google Play Store for WORLD News Group with this icon (version 7.8 or higher):

Why did we change our app? 
Our previous magazine app was written with software that has become obsolete and incompatible with the editorial software we use to produce it. It was rejected by Apple forcing us to rewrite a newer version but we were forced to release it before it was completed. In the initial launch of this new app, we maintained the magazine reader version you are accustomed to. In this updated version we have added so much more! Our desire is to give you the opportunity to enjoy all of our content, not just our magazine. You can check out the latest headlines or listen to the podcast while checking out the latest cartoon. Please rest assured we are improving it everyday.

Known or Corrected Issues:
We are continuing to improve with every revision. Version 7.8 includes an improved reading experience for the magazine PDF and a fix for the playback looping issue with the podcasts. Versions 7.5 and higher will notify you if the app you currently have installed is not the most up to date version available in the app store. You can easily open the app and select the Account tab at the bottom then select View Account Details to see what version you are on.

How to login to the app:

If you are already a member, select the profile icon. Scroll down and enter your username and password then select Login to My WORLD Account. If you are not a member you can easily become a member by selecting Let’s Go. Here you can purchase a membership and create your user.

How to manage my account:

Select the profile icon and sign in if you are not already. Here you can manage your subscription or update your account or view account details.

How to read WORLD News:

Select this icon to enjoy all the latest news available from the home page of the website.

How to read the magazine:

You may view the magazine two ways: In-App style or as a PDF

To View the Magazine In-App Style
Make sure you’re logged in
Select the magazine icon
In the Latest Magazine Issue section select “Start Reading This Issue”.
This will open the magazine on the CEO Notes page. If you navigate away from this page and come back, that button will now say “Continue Reading This Issue” which will take you back to where you left off.

Note: The “Table of Contents” link will bring you back to the in-app table of contents where you can navigate the articles from the latest issue as viewed in non-pdf format.

To view the Magazine in a PDF format

Make sure you’re logged in
Select the magazine icon
In the Latest Magazine Issue section select “Download This Issue”

Once your file has downloaded successfully you will have 2 options in the PDF Reading Options section.

  1. Select “Start Reading This Issue” to view the PDF in the app

  2. Select “Open This Issue In Another App” to view the PDF via a PDF Reader already installed on your device. Pick the PDF viewer you wish to use from the list presented or click Save to Files to save it to your device for offline viewing. (Android users will not see the save option and will need to open it in a PDF Reader first and download it to your device from there)

Note: “Remove this issue from the WORLD app” does not remove it from your device, just from the app.

How to listen to the podcast:

Select the podcast icon. Select the play arrow to listen to the latest episode of any of our podcasts.
