Customer Reviews

I prefer the new interface

The old interface tended to turn pages when I only wanted to scroll horizontally on a specific page. This update provides more positive control moving around and between pages.

No zoom

For some reason a&s disabled the ability to pinch zoom on pictures. This really stinks as one of the main reason I subscribe is the beautiful photos. As this ability is native to the iOS platform it must have been a conscious decision to disable it. Dumb.


The new update ruined this app. To skip past an article now you have to flip through all the pages. Bring back the vertical page scrolling.

I have multiple issues on my iPad. The new version ALWAYS opens in the library. What can't it remember where I left off?
