Ratings and Reviews
No plain text format
There isn't an option to view the articles in a plain text format so I don't find this app helpful. Within this app you can only view the magazine in its printed format, with double columns of text on each page which means a fair bit of zooming in and out as you read. It's easier to read TPM by logging into their website where a plain text format is available if you scroll down beneath the 'printed' version of the page. I contacted the company who said they have no plans to upgrade this app to include a plain text option.
