Needs way, way more development

Lunar Mountaineer

RBdigital provides access to a lot of digital magazines through my library, but the app/service is so **cumbersome** and dated in design that I rarely feel like using it. Finding and reading the latest issue just feels like a chore.

Ideally the app should be able to keep track of new magazine issues instead of asking if you’d like email updates. The email links sometimes don’t even open the app or open to the current issue. This means you have to go to the trouble of manually searching for each issue of each magazine, which only gets more irritating the more magazines you follow.

You also cannot view other issues of magazines from your check-out screen, which adds to the inconvenience of using the app.

Checked-out magazines are sorted in a long chronological list, with no other sorting options.

The UI, in general isn’t very attractive or fast, and wastes a lot of space.

Error downloading

Mr MacGoogle

This app has always been problematic and frustrating to use. Now it’s even worse. It will no longer download magazines that I have checked out. Despite trying everything suggested in ‘help’ such as reinstalling the app and turning off auto download etc. Fortunately I can read them in a browser. So best not bother with this thing. Literally useless.

I am not young and get so much pleasure from the Library app and when I get a problem as my I Pad is quite old the staff are so helpful and help me sort it out.
