Customer Reviews

Terrible app!!

Useless app. Download progress bars don't work properly, magazine downloads pause and stop randomly and once I've downloaded literally a few back issues, my more recent downloads just "disappear" from my library. What's the point in having a library feature in which case? I have just got this app and wanted to download a number of old issues that I had already paid for with my digital/print subscription (which I have had for over a year) for when I travel abroad and am not in wifi range.

It's so ineffectual I want to cancel my digital subscription completely as it's TOTALLY unusable!

Terrible App

This has to be one of the worst apps out there in terms of UI! Why is the delete button labelled "Archive"? Pressing the "Archive" button deletes the copy of the magazine from the library without warning! Worst of all is the fact that this delete button is the same size and right next to the "View" button. This makes it so easy to accidentally press the delete button, which means you have to download all again! Please fix this - this app is unusable like this and I will have to cancel my subscription next year if this can't be fixed!

Didn't save the place where I have been reading

This app doesn't save the place where I have been reading so every time I reopen the app, I have to scroll down again and again. This is very annoying. Can you please fix this?
