Amazing App if your lucky enough for it to work

App was working fine, I downloaded an update to fix the January 2015 issue (which already worked for me), only for me to be unable to view the issue afterwords. I deleted an reinstalled the app and now I am unable to restore any of my issues dating back to 2011. Have been contacting tech support for several weeks, and have now been transferred to the Hong Kong department?? Very frustrating, I want my issues back!

No sample content and no way to preview issues before purchase

I wanted to like this, but was very surprised to find there is no sample content at all - not even one article.

This makes it impossible to evaluate the reading experience before buying an issue - which is especially important when using a smaller screen, in my opinion.

There's also no way to view the tables of contents of issues before buying. NG support told me to look up the paper issues to find out what they contain. It's not a smooth user experience to have to leave the app in order to get the details of an in-app purchase.

I'd happily try this app again and give a higher rating, if I could only test drive it properly!

Good articles bad design

The articles are not separated into pages so if you come out of the app without finishing an article it takes you to the top of the article again and you loose your place. Very very annoying! Please fix otherwise just too frustrating to read!
