Two issues...

The app doesn't remember your position in magazine issues, and the toolbars stay in place as you read, limiting the viewable area of the magazine.

Appreciate the continued updates but these two issues are a real pain!

Can't download March 2013 issue

I paid for the March 2013 issue, but the download stopped at 5%. I tried to pause it and press resume, cancel it and reload a few times; but the download never resume. Meanwhile, I can download other programs or other magazines into my iPad just fine. So it's likely some thing wrong with the app, please fix.
