What's New in Version 4.1.2
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Completely dysfunctional. My library previously offered periodicals through Zinio and it was clunky but worked. They recently switched to this flashy but ineffective app and I’m frustrated and annoyed by nearly every aspect of it. It listed 17 pages of every magazine I ever downloaded in an unorganized mess. (Zinio grouped by year and month making it easy to delete old issues.) Where I could once download, read, and easily delete a magazine - this app has you “return” issues and each action to do that takes forever. With 17 pages of archived magazines, it would take me a month to clear out the backlog. No idea why my old deleted issues are even on here. Preparing for an upcoming trip, I used this app to download the newest issues. Most downloaded, a few just sat at 0% and wouldn’t download. After most were downloaded, I disconnected from wifi to see how I could read the downloaded magazines. Nada - couldn’t access a single issue. When I reconnected to wifi, all downloads were....now not downloaded. I have never had an app so utterly dysfunctional and useless and wonder why my library made the horrible decision to switch to this useless and poorly executed app. Yeah, it’s free -and not worth it.
Can’t read magazines!
I downloaded this app a couple of weeks ago so I could take some magazines on a retreat to read on my iPad mini. When I got there they were not, even though I downloaded them before I left. The app showed that the mags were checked out to me, but they were inaccessible. Now that I’m back, I thought with my home WiFi I would be able to read them, but no such luck. When I tap on a magazine I go to a screen that says they are downloading, it they are obviously not, since I waited 5 minutes with no change to the screen. Very disappointing. I hope my library is not paying for this service because they like I, are getting ripped off.
FOLLOW-UP: I deleted the app and downloaded it again and it now works. Hopefully it will continue doing so.
I would not even bother using this app if I didn’t need it for emagazines I check out from the library. I’m looking forward to my library using another app. This app is useless. The only thing that works with it is checkout. But once you check out, 90% of the time I can’t download or read the checked out magazine. I removed the app from memory, restarted the phone, etc but nothing, absolutely nothing helps. It simply won’t download most magazines. Doesn’t give any error message either. Doesn’t let me remove the magazines I can’t read either. They sit there orphaned. A very useless app. Too bad I don’t have an alternative because this is the app my library chose :(
