Very frustrating magazine app.


Today, as I often do on a busy day off, I have been dipping in an out of an article in Pilot magazine. If you allow the tablet to close, when you unlock it, you see the page you were on for 1 second, then it resets to the home page and you have to select the issue then scroll through to get back to where you were. Every bl**dy time! And scrolling through the pages, it usually interprets scrolling past an advert page as wanting to go to the advertiser's website. It is very, very annoying.

Still not good enough


Despite the recent update is still dated, buggy and very poor. Why on earth does it not remember what page you were in when you go back in? Or even which issue you were reading? And why are the pages slightly too large for the screen in the standard view?

It's main competitor doesn't fail like this and I'll be sticking with the that in future. My subscription is about to expire and I won't be renewing. Such a shame the experience is so bad it discourages you from reading.

Authentication failed

JO ssss

I purchased a subscription but an error occurred during the purchase. iTunes Store charged me but I don't have access to the magazine. Daylight rubbery!

I contacted both iTunes and the magazine but they have not resolved the issue. I recommend a boycott of this online magazine until they sort themselves out.
