Downloads not working properly
Nice app but there is an issue with the downloads. Just subscribed yesterday and had no issue with downloading the first issue. The flow of the app is nice, although a little difficult to figure out at first. The problem came after I received the notification of the next issue available today. It would download to 99% (according to the progress bar) and then hang there. Canceling the download and restarting did not work nor did restarting the device or anything like that. I finally got the download working after deleting the app, reinstalling it, and restoring my purchase. I’m not sure what will happen going forward with the next issue but I suppose this is a workaround for now, although inconvenient. A good app with good content if the developers can get the downloads right.
Update - The downloading issue continues to happen with each new issue released. I have to delete the app, reinstall it, then restore the subscription purchase in order to get an issue to download. Once an issue is downloaded, I can’t download another. I also can’t contact support about this because they provide a dead link to a support page (nice touch, way to be on top of things).
This is what magazine apps should be
I've been a Businessweek print subscriber for several years, so this was one of the first apps on my iPad2. I like how seamlessly they have integrated audio and video into the app while still maintaining the essence of the print magazine. I can easily switch between the print and digital versions. Sure, eliminating the popup ads between sections would be nice, but advertising is part of the publication business and the digital version already has far fewer ads than the print version, so why complain? My absolute favorite feature, however, is the ability to "clip" and save individual articles for future reference -- even after deleting the issue from which the article was clipped. Digital access is free for print subscribers as it should be, and they got it right the first time: I'm not harassed every other week with a new update to fix more bugs. This app fully deserves a five-star rating, as it sets the standard to which all other custom-built magazine apps should aspire.
Amazing content, but I miss the magazine layout
Amazing content, but I miss the magazine layout. I just spent the last 30 minutes comparing this to the Zinio version (essentially a PDF) and the Zinio version wins hands down. With Zinio I actually feel like I'm reading a magazine, unfortunately this app does not retain the magazine feel of it's paper/PDF versions.
This version actually is missing some content, as there were some interesting photos and captions in the Zinio version which this version lacked.
This app, however, definitely wins out on price. You can buy the print version for about $10-$15 cheaper than the Zinio price, and you get full access to this app.
...that being said, I still might switch back to Zinio.
Edit: Unlike the Economist app which adds content from it's print version (professional audio playback of each article for example), this app does not add anything meaningful to the experience. As mentioned above, it takes away from the magazine experience by removing graphical content.
Literally every article here has the same layout, they take a few of the pictures from the print article, put them in the beginning slideshow box and paste the text in. This doesn't really work for a magazine like this, where the layout and graphics are used to push the story along.
Going back to the Zinio version of Bloomberg Businessweek.
