Model aviation


My system is an iPad Pro with 128meg ram and over 70meg free. Unable to keep more than 3 magazines in the app. Takes 20mns to download a magazine on a 10meg/sec connection. When downloading you must scroll through all pages to force download. Contacted AMA for resolution who put me in touch with GTExcell the contractor. Gtexcel had me delete and reload the app with no resolution. GT said they would investigate with no further contact from GT. Contacted GT numerous times via email with zero response from Gt.
A better solution is to download the magazine on your computer from the Model Aviation website and convert to ePub format with Calibre then load to iPad via iBooks. GTExcel is a poor vendor at best and does not deserve your support.

Horrible App


I agree with GeoStork, this horrible app continually fails to download the entire magazine leaving me with a worthless magazine I can't read offline. Just use a DRM version of pdf with my iTunes account for crying out loud!

I can't believe we actually paid for this!

AMA Useless


After months of complaining to the AMA about this application nothing has been done. AMA needs to DROP this developer and move on as it’s a huge black-eye for a great organization. Issues won’t download.
