Ratings and Reviews
Love It, Glitchy Lately
I love this app! Unfortunately it has been crashing a lot lately. Hoping for a fix soon.
Great App! But..
Why can't we remove the white borders in landscape so we can read a magazine fullscreen?
Otherwise, fantastic! Clean and simple.
By popular demand, you can now enable full-screen mode! Read without the distraction of navigation or tab bars. Tap the full-screen icon in the top left of the Read Screen; tap again to return to default view.
Terrible user experience
The concept is good, but the implementation is terrible. Downloading magazines is cumbersome as it requires that you first "read" the magazine from your web browser on your device, and then you can open the magazine in Flipster. If you plan on reading several magazines, this work-flow quickly becomes tiresome. The in-app reading experience is also poor because the magazine pages are just low-resolution images; the text is pixelated, especially if you zoom in. Zinio for Libraries, while also not perfect, is a much better choice.
