What's New in Version 2.9.2
iOS 6 fixes
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!
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.
Good paper / poor App
You have to handle this with care once you're on board. When it is time to renew be prepared to uninstall and reinstall as a matter of course. Could and should be much better.
