Small Text, No Flash
The digital version used to feature stories in landscape orientation with attractive transitions between articles and pages and photo slide shows. The most recent version switched to portrait orientation and is essentially an uploaded version of the print magazine. It is page for page the same with no innovative use of the digital technology. It's as if they just uploaded a PDF. This format makes the text very small, especially on an iPad mini. I can't imagine trying to read it on your phone. Show some creativity!
Why the downgrade?
The digital mag was so good when it was an interactive version, but now....nothing but a scan of the magazine. What a letdown. I can understand the need to get more ads in front of us, but to take away the interactive features is a significant mistake, and eventually a costly one...to you. To echo what others are saying - why pay extra for so little benefit? I have nearly forty years with this magazine and now I'm worried that won't be around a year from now. This level of cheapness is not a good sign.
No longer formatted for mobile
The old version of this app was formatted for landscape viewing on a mobile device. It was readable without having to expand the print (reverse pinch) and move the page around on the screen. It featured slide shows, pop ups with additional info and nice transition effects. The new version is just a digital presentation of the print magazine. It's the same crappy presentation as other (low tech) magazines. How do I apply for a refund?
