Inconsistent downloads


Despite being on reliable WiFi, the individual issues will not download consistently to allow offline reading. The download percentage will just disappear anywhere from 50-90% completion and one can never tell if the download has finished. Despite an issue appearing to be fully downloaded stating “Read” instead of “Download”, often times I am unable to open it when I am offline. Sure enough, when I reconnect to the internet and try to open the issue, it will start downloading again.

CME quizzes


I like that I can read on the go, but I downloaded the app so I can take the quiz as I go. This app would be much more widely used if the CME quizzes were available in the app rather than through the link to the aafp website.



Agree with several reviewers. Constantly have problem with app sayin “ no internet connection” of freezing or unable to download edition. Have purged and restarted several times. Impressive what a low priority this seems to be in an otherwise good organization
