Problems with iOS 8

I'm confused. I actually started subscribing after upgrading my iPad to iOS 8 and it worked fine initially, and I bought some additional special editions. After that initial purchase, the app started crashing, and I've never been able to open the additional purchases. So how long does a magazine devoted to Apple products wait before fixing crashes with iOS 8? I want to give the magazine 5 stars, and 1 star to the developer for not fixing it - so I end up with 3 stars. But I then decided the best way to attract the developer's attention is with a 1 star rating, so that's what I'm giving it. I will gladly revise my rating to 5 stars if the problem is fixed or addressed.

Nice but could use some extras.

I really love reading the digital version. It has great color, is easy to navigate, and I like the links for more info or to purchase. The one thing I miss from my hard copy us the ability to keep articles that I can use and refer to in the future. I can email an article to myself but I have to access that particular edition to see my article. I need a place within MacLife or Newsstand to archive articles for future use.

Lots of great info in every issue.

Would like if you could highlight and use speak selection. When you want to get the info and are on the go it's nice to select all and have it read to you. Also would be nice if you could rotate your iOS device and have the magazine rotate with it.
