PLEASE add support for landscape view!
I love popular science! I have no problems with this app other than the absence of landscape view. Please add support for this! I often read it on my iPad and I would much rather be able to stand it up on the table in front of me with my case than hold my iPad out in front of me while I read and risk dropping it. Not to mention my arm gets quite tired.
Haven't had this app for some time, but good lord what happened to it? You used to be able to read articles on here without paying, now you have to pay? I realize they need to make money, but what happened to advertising? I feel as though science is already falling to the wayside in America, but now a popular science, no pun intended, magazine must limit even further those who would like access to their material?
You would think that a publication dedicated to science would impress you with it's app version. It looks like they just scanned the magazine. The text is microscopic and you have to zoom and scroll in order to read anything. There is nothing under settings to increase the font size. It is not an enjoyable experience whatsoever to read this. It is one of the most primitive apps I have ever downloaded.
