What's New in Version 1.9
Update to allow customers to sign-in to their Human Kinetics Journals account after updating to iOS 7.
Read before you download. I thought I would have access to all these journals. No, I could not find a single article I could read without paying. Subscription prices are not cheap either. Also, after using the app for only a couple minutes it crashed and there was not a search option. Nothing to great here. The only good thing is that there were a lot of journal options that would let you see what is out there.
Not mobile friendly
This app has A LOT of potential; however, it is NOT mobile friendly. The journal I would love to read (IJATT) is viewed in a PDF format only which means I have to zoom in/out and scroll to the left/right which is frustrating and not helpful at all! No one likes to read 5 pages of a certain article like that. Please, update!!! Until then I'm deleting it!
