Ratings and Reviews
After following instructions the magazine does not load, just an endless loop of asking you to install the app. Just use the browser and don't waste your storage.
Does not work
App keeps asking me to log in, but will not accept information. Tried to create new log in, but no place to do so.
Too many glitches!
After installing and reinstalling this app several times I concluded that the app itself is useless, as it doesn't let you download or even search for magazines created with 3D Issue.
The best (and only??) way to access these issues may be to search "3D Issue" directly from the App Store and browse publications created with this platform (you'll see "3D Issue" in small print beside the icon and below the title of each publication in the App Store), then download them individually. I was able to do this, but even then, navigation within the issues was clumsy, stilted, and very slow. The zoom didn't work properly, there was no way to zoom back out, and when the page was zoomed in, my iPad didn't recognize swipes properly and navigation icons disappeared or were difficult to find and use. Text and graphics resolution was very poor, even on an iPad with Retina Display, regardless of zoom level.
Overall, the app itself doesn't work. At all. And when I did manage to download issues directly, there were too many glitches to make reading practical. It has potential, but doesn't even seem ready for beta at this point, so I'm surprised it's even being offered yet.
I empathize with the publishers who chose to use this platform for their publications, as their content seemed very good, but is a nightmare for users to access.
Big thumb's down at this point, but I'll look out for the updated version if/when it's made available.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
