Ratings and Reviews
Love It, Glitchy Lately
I love this app! Unfortunately it has been crashing a lot lately. Hoping for a fix soon.
Love this app . Only complaint is that it used to work from the overdrive app but now it doesn't. I have to access my library through web browser in order to get magazine to download to Flipster app.
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.
