Introducing The Psychologist app

Available as a free download for iOS and Android.

16 February 2016

NOTE: Please see this page for an update.


The Psychologist app is available from the following stores:

Google Play  


App Store / iOS  


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].
