Much improved..

Considering the first attempt, this has come on leaps and bounds, it's still fairly buggy though, some of the links within the app don't work in the settings menu, I'd be slightly hesitant to subscribe due to this. Also, missing the game without newsstand integration, maybe with some more polish, newsstand support, then I think this could show others how it's done. Also, picture resolution could be improved :) not bad, not perfect.


Resubbed after getting fed up with the bugs last year - still sluggish, not a clear logical idea of what's going on and what the app wants to do when you open it - read, reader?! no difference, inconsistent downloading results, and is it too much to ask for iPhone 5 screen optimisation? Disappointed as i love the star!


Surprised by the generally poor ratings given to this app. I have had no problems with it at all and of course, the content is excellent, as is the value for money compared to the paper copy. So I will certainly be renewing my subscription.

Poor show

Clunky old fashioned interface, with too small buttons. No support for the latest iPhone screens even after they have been available for months. Regularly freezes up and needs restarting. Pages sometimes take forever to display.
