Good Work

capella 13

This update is good as it looks and operates as a tablet app. Previous updates have had the appearance of a paper magazine in app form and were sometimes difficult to navigate. Saving articles to scrap book is useful too.

Problems again!


Here we go again. Up till July 2017 it was working fine - good in fact as the magazine worked with a full menu you could select from and read articles. September issue doesn't download properly and is just a huge stream of 132 pages you have to wade through!!! Hopeless. I've just renewed my subscription in June so not happy! Going to ask for a refund if this isn't cleared up quickly!

September 2017 rubbish does not go past page 58


Phoned and spoke to the astronomy now team. Apparently problems with this month. Just like photocopy of magazine. However my download, tried three times. Download archive etc etcetc. Refuses to go past page 58 without crashing. What a waste of money and time and patience. Technical subject, intelligent users. Rubbish product. Why !!
