Tech glitches abound

I missed about three months of issues to technical glitches. A handful of pages or half pages would load and that was it.

I'm a little surprised to read the positive reviews. I was initially very excited to see Climbing magazine in Newsstand but this implementation is severely lacking. In short it's nothing more than hi-res images of pages which must be viewed in portrait mode, making the process of reading an article or viewing a photo a frustrating exercise in pinching, zooming in and out, and moving a page back and forth. There are blocks of text which span an entire page that are too small to read when zoomed out, so the reader is forced to pinch-zoom in and move the text back and forth. Very clunky and annoying. Likewise, there is some beautiful photography which would benefit from a double-tap-to-zoom mechanic to isolate the image from the text, like in iBooks. Look to apps like Cook's Illustrated for and excellent example of digital print media presentation.
