Absolutely the worst update. I enjoyed previous reading experience with normal fonts and interactive pages, easy navigation, simple layout. Now it is all gone. Fonts are way too small, it feels like you are reading scanned magazine in pdf format, constantly zooming in on small fonts, images are low quality as well. It really wasn't a problem to download 500mb for one issue, now it's 30mb of unreadable pages. If issue won't get resolved, I'm canceling my subscription.
Horrific electronic magazine adaptation
The latest update continues Popular Sciences downward fall toward being the worst implementation of an electronic magazine I've ever seen.
Starting with losing my subscription information, Then finding that it had lost my downloaded issues, then, once I get back to where I was before the update, finding the new layout... On my iPad, the fonts in the articles are now about 4 point -- unreadable.
It's like the articles are an afterthought packed between the full-page advertisements. What thought process led to the idea of putting the photo captions on a different page than the photos is also a mystery.
The bar is not set very high here --please fix the layout so it is possible to read the magazine. That's all I'm asking for!
It all started going south when the possibility to read portrait or landscape mode was eliminated. Since then, every change you made kept making the experience worse. What happened to the interactive experience? When did the state of the art e-magazine turn to a simple scanned document? I will cancel my subscription if you don't go back to how it was before the new editor in chief... and I don't think I'll be the only one.
