Ratings and Reviews
Constant crashes, can't complete a download
Would love to be able to read PRS with this app. But currently it won't stay running for more than 10 seconds without crashing, and even when it did, I never succeeded in downloading an entire issue- the iPad always timed out before it finished and the download stopped. (My OS is up to date, too.) This is a great idea (I read Sports Illustrated with its iPad app, and it is great- video content, etc., works perfectly), but the PRS app needs serious help before we can eliminate the print version.
Nice app but limited by download size
The layout of the articles is easy to use and the app is quite visually appealing. However, the major limitation is that one journal was over 1 gigabyte (yes, gigabyte... not megabyte) to download - that is a tremendous amount of memory for one month's worth of articles. I would rate it 5 stars if it didn't take 30+ minutes over wifi to download one journal.
Great idea but poorly implemented
I like the idea of being able to pull up articles on my iPad so that I don't have to carry the journal with me, but (1) the files are too big and take too long to download, (2) the app is laggy and blurry at times, and (3) the text resolution is awful and certainly does not make use of the iPad 3's retina display. This is not the best magazine app out there by a long shot.
