By the way, discovered that my problem logging in had to do with a login counter that tracks the number of devices you can use with your print subscription account. Well, I'd plugged in my print subscription info on a number of Kindles, including two of my own (one replacing the other I returned for display flaw) and one for a friend and two Android devices I managed to copy the apk to to run the app. On all of my own devices I'd done factory restores before remembering to logout of the New Yorker app, so apparently their subscription server believes I'm still logged in on those devices, which explains why I couldn't/still can't login on a new device. Fortunately my roommate offered up his subscription info and I can login with that - and I'm now aware that I need to logout if I wipe any given Android device on which I'm running the app.
I emailed New Yorker customer support and Amazon as well with no luck getting them to reset the "device count" as described on their help FAQ. They ask me to call and I haven't wanted to be bothered doing so but probably will at some point...
