Fab magazine great info but on my iPad ios9 maybe getting there

Over the last year I've experienced a variety of issues. There has always been someone from the focus team helpline to help me figure it out, thank you.

I'm now on iOS 9 maybe the issues with the downloads to my iPad are being ironed out, I hope so, onward and upward.

Apple have been most difficult to deal with. I just struggle on regardless.
Yes there are programming issues but I feel apple and iOS are equally to blame.
I love this magazine, I'm no real science graduate just well read.
Brain food to google.

Fab Focus

This latest update is a big improvement. It downloads faster and doesn't crash

App crashes

App was working fine until last update. Now it keeps crashing whenever I try to launch it on the iPhone 6 on iOS 9. Great app nonetheless and I hope this issue is resolved soon.
