Great magazine, but app could be better
Like other have mentioned there are issues with the app not running in the background, the download will stop if you don't leave the app open. What's worse the download is huge, slow and sometimes they release updates that will make you re download the issue. I also wish the app did a better job of remembering where you left off without having to create and load bookmarks.
That being said, the magazine is great and I really enjoy the digital format. Being able to see more screenshots than the printed format allows, having the trailer or video interview embedded into the article is great. I won't go back to the print issues.
Fine - when it works
Unlike many reviewers on here, I've had no problem downloading an issue. The problem lies in that once you open an issue to read it there's no way to close it. No amount of creative swiping or tapping will open any sort of menu to return to the library, nor will closing the newsstand app work. Sorry friends, you're stuck reading that same issue forever. So what, I need to delete and reinstall the app every time I want to read a new issue? This is ridiculous and should be an easy fix. Very disappointing, since the mag looks great when it actually works properly. FIX THIS!
As others have stated....
Fix the download issue. This is the first time I've actually taken the time to review anything on the store, that's how ridiculous this is. Why pay good money for a magazine I can't read? The app will not download issues in the background and always starts over each large download every time you try! Wouldn't be so much an issue if each download wasn't about 10 minutes long which is well after the iPad shuts off automatically without use. Poorly written app and needs fixed before myself and what seems like many spend any more money on it
