What's New in Version 1.2
- Critical bug fixes for iOS 8; update mandatory to support iOS 8
Decent app for a great journal
This app is a convenient and useful accessory to my JAAPA subscription. It is well structured so that finding articles is simple. The zoom feature, done by pinching the screen, is my favorite reason to use the app instead of reading the hard copy journal, as larger text reduces eye strain considerably for me. However, the zoom feature is very buggy; some pages will not zoom. Fix this problem and the app is 5 stars.
Here's the workaround for the zoom feature. While you are on the page that will not allow zooming (which seems to be all of them except for the first page of an article), click on the viewer (top right button), then click on the page to return to it. For whatever reason the zoom will be intact.
I should note that each JAAPA issue will download free if you have an AAPA membership and you log in. Otherwise it's $9.99 each.
