What's New in Version 6.2.8
- iOS 8 Compatibility
Love the content, but the app is lacking
Having only recently subscribed to FWWM, there's so much content to take in its overwhelming. Fortunately, their website is set up very well and makes viewing articles simple and intuitive, however the app needs some work.
If all you want to read are recent issues, then you're fine, but when you start working back to older issues and purchasing those, it becomes more difficult. as another reviewer said, navigating issues is tough because you can only view the cover of one issue at a time and you must swipe to navigate. say you want to view something 20 issues ago, you have to swipe 20 times before you reach it. a compact list view of all issues, search functionality, and sorting (standard issue, special issue, etc) are small changes that would drastically improve the user's experience of this app.
for those reasons, I have to rate the app a 3 (not the content, which is easily a 5).
Restricts Mac users
I signed up for the online membership to get the digital issue. Not only did I discover I have to pick my way through 27 books for sale on the Newsstand bookshelf, which are displayed exactly like the magazine I'm looking for, but "The issues that are contained within the app that comes with your online membership can be saved to your device or computer if you have the Windows 8 operating system (Windows 8 is the only operating system that works with apps)." Thus I can neither print from an issue or save it elsewhere on either my iPad or Mac. Read that again; it's practically unbelievable. Yet I pay the same as a Windows user. I have over 200 FWW issues as pdfs in Goodreader that I got off the archive cds they sell. Apparently it's too much to ask for me to add these digital issues to that archive or anything else. I will have to also buy the yearly cds and import those into Goodreader. I'm going to report this to the Apple Store. I don't know how they even approved such a Windows-centric app.
Great Content, Lousy Implementation
Longtime reader of FWW, only a year or two of this app. I love being able to read, or maybe reread, issues when I travel. But the app itself has been just so-so forever. I just upgraded, and it "lost" all issues I had previously downloaded. It does crash once in a while. But worse feature is the "Shelf" view. There is no way to show only the content you have already downloaded, it shows what Taunton wants to sell you. I'm sure "Fresh from the Garden" is interesting, but why does it always appear in my Fine Woodworking Shelf? And there is no indication of which Items cost extra and which are part of the subscription. Terrible. Sad that a high-quality print publisher like Taunton has failed in the digital world.
