Great Magazine, lousy app
I’ve been an Instinct paper magazine reader since its inception and have enjoyed it very much. Recently, I’ve been switching all my paper magazines to digital versions and most of those switches have been at least of equal quality if not even improved. Unfortunately Instinct definitely falls short of even the lowest expectations.
The images appear to be Jpeg scans of the magazine pages rather than PDFs. As a result, the smart zoom function to specific paragraphs of text does not work properly and every paragraph must be manually zoomed in. Even on a full-size iPad its usually necessary to zoom in as the font type and size are not optimal for digital consumption. Once zoomed in, a further weakness becomes evident, especially on retina devices: The images are of low quality and as the text is fairly small, compression artefacts become very apparent.
It seems as though Instinct is not taking digital publication very seriously and this app is an embarrassment for such a quality magazine.
While this app has some bugs, the tech support at Instinct is wonderful and professional. I wrote them and got a quick response. I can down get my magazine where ever I am in the world :)
So much for that new issue!
I downloaded the app because as the App Store image and the email I received from instinct stated that the newest issue (featuring Leading Men of the Year) was available both in print and in the app. Well, much to my surprise after spending 2.99 on the app just to get that issue, it's not even there. I want my money back.
