What's New in Version 2.1.12
- Bug Fixes
Too much interactive stuff -UPDATED
I'm not a print subscriber, so don't have these documented issues. I am a digital subscriber to many iPad mags, and this one is extremely frustrating to use. Many pages have windows where the text is scrollable, some pages require clicking or dragging in certain pages, articles either page down or right. I'm constantly trying figure out how to read the content. It is like a hidden object game; I just want to read the content! Being able to scroll drown to read an entire article without advancing a couple of pages is appreciated, but the methods are too numerous making it way too distracting. We should not have to read navigation cues, in order to read a magazine!!! Macworld and RBA are good examples of online magazines, very simple to use.
It's been 18 months since my first review, and it has only gotten worse. I will eventually drop this subscription.
Administration is Frustrating
I tend to read mags when I travel so it may be weeks between using this app. More than half the time I want one of the mags it makes me re-sign in. Every mag has its own method of signing in, each can have a different email address and all have different passwords so a compromise of one does not expose all. One mag, Consumer Reports, has a limit on the number of characters for the email address and I have to make up one to use since mine exceeds their limit. It is very frustrating to get on the road and discover that I can read few if any mags.
Please make the sign in process easier. I find I am not renewing my subscriptions since I do not get to read them when I want to do so.
A fun read, inspired me to get a bike!
**Firstly, I figured out the download problem after much frustration...you have to hit the LIBRARY button at the bottom, the Store section doesn't work properly.
I like newsstand apps designed like this, closer in design to the print magazine than some of the big money mags do, with just enough interactive elements to keep you going. Although I would like a little more juicyness, maybe some diagrams or how-to videos!
Overall great editorial if you have any interest in bikes.
