Great magazine - bad app

I'm a subscriber for the content. I love the magazine, and it's a great value for the price. But, the magazine issues take forever to download. I subscribe to several digital magazines - 4 newsstand, one Zinio, and one standalone - and in each one I can be reading new issues in under a minute. This app is 5 to 10 minutes for a new issue (I'm not exaggerating) and then the app hounds me to download updates to a magazine issue. Once a magazine is published - I really don't want an update - put it in the next issue.
The new wrinkle in the app - my issue won't download. The issue download button shows "queued" and wont download. So, I checked help. I know I'm not the only one with this problem - it's in the list. I followed the list of things to try when this happens. I got to the last item - uninstall then reinstall the app. This worked - sort of. My iPad Air is set to sleep after 5 minutes. This wasn't long enough - the issue made it to 60% (last I looked) . When I picked the iPad up and hit the home key, the app opened to reveal a gray "queued" button again and no new issue.
I love the mag - but if I can't download the issues - then this app is worthless.

Makes useful Mac info alive

MacLife is one of my first magazine (apps?) experiences within Newsstand. It's working well generally. I response time is good. New issue load time is long - not something to do just before leaving the house or a Starbucks. In-magazine navigation is intuitive for the most part, with helpful cues (and the initial help screen is handy), but sometimes there is a sense of too many different ways to reveal another page or section. Maybe I need to get some practice! In the end I can read the content, share it and that's most important.

Great magazine

I'm a new Mac user and I look forward to every issue. The reviews are so helpful and easy to understand. I just can't get enough. The special editions are worth every penny.
I've had no problems with the app, the only thing is that I have to read the magazine in the portrait view but it's not much of a bother. You can get use to it.
