Deleting this app
When I noticed my old popular science app was no longer updating its news articles, I thought I should check the store for a new version. Yep, new version. Now with no actual articles and tons of "subscribe now" give me money nonsense. Deleting this app. You guys don't even get ad money now. Happy? Used to read every day.
I downloaded the app when I got a new subscription. The screen doesn't rotate. Opened the latest issue to find the first 18 pages are adds. I tried zooming in a few times, and the previous page started to take over the page I was trying to read. Deleting this immediately.
While I applaud PS for allowing print subscribers access to digital, I am disappointed one can't read articles in landscape view.
