The reading experience is decent and you can read issues online, but I want them offline to read on the plane. Downloading the March 2012 issue took over two hours. It took that long not because of a slow Internet connection, but because it stopped downloading every time the iPad went to sleep or I moved to another app. I finally had to set the iPad aside and keep idly tapping it every now and then while doing something else to prevent it from sleeping in order to get it downloaded.
The app reading experience, however, is significantly better than the browser based version (which is also plagued by slow PDF downloads but for different reasons).
While this is a great magazine...
