What's New in Version 5.2

- By popular demand, providing full-screen Read mode
Update: back to 5 stars thanks to devs bringing back full screen mode. Would be better without the icon to exit full screen being constantly on screen, devs can you find a solution without the icon always there?
Update: changing from 5 stars to 3 after they removed full screen mode. Please get rid of those top and bottom panels and let me just read magazine full screen without visual distractions.
I don't understand all the negative reviews. I saw a magazine via my library website and was able to view it in web browser. From there I saw option to view it in this app and it opened it perfectly. On iPad I was viewing two pages at a time in landscape orientation. I tried rotating screen to portrait and saw full screen one page of magazine. Looks fantastic.
This app makes it easy to find and browse all the magazines I'm interested in. The interface is intuitive and visually friendly...it is easy to look at, and takes a backseat to the content without distracting from it, and is a pleasant visual when it's at the forefront. I highly recommend it!
