Needs Work

My main criticism is that the interface is confusing. I just want to open it, select an issue of the magazine to read, and get started. But half the time I don't know if I'm in the magazine or an online article, and getting a view of all the magazine issues (covers) is buried under the "Stories" menu.

And if you switch to another app, or walk away for 5 minutes? When you come back you will likely have to navigate your way back to the point in the article you were reading, rather than have the app open where you left off.

So: put the view of all issues as the starting point; make diversions into other online content a sub-feature; and remember where we were in he magazine for when we come back.

Don't Do It ! Deletes All Saved Articles

All your previous 'Saved' Articles and readership history are DELETED when you install this App update. If you are a Print subscriber transitioning to Digital/Print you are wise to wait til the bugs are out.

Poor streamlining and little flexibility, no clear visual path to toggle freely btw. Current monthly ISSUE, individual Article(s), and Archive Issues. Think before you leap.

Doesn't download purchased issues

I downloaded this App to read a specific article in a specific issue. After selecting it and paying for it (and receiving an Apple receipt) the issue did not download. When I went back to the issue, it asked me to pay for it again. No quick response to a bug report. Don't bother with this buggy and unsatisfactory
