Very Disappointing

CribbageFreak

It is unfair to even call this an "app". It is simply a tool that runs in a browser session. There is no "offline" ability which renders its value almost completely useless.

Users are simply taken to a browser session which is clunky and difficult to find the catalogs after they have been purchased. The catalog runs as a full copy of the Scott book, with corresponding page (so if you memorize all the page numbers in the catalog you can navigate quickly there).

The search tool is not much more helpful either (and I'm a very experienced user of technology). For me the worst part is no offline viewing. This catalog is fine on a stationary PC but fails entirely as a mobile "app". Please bring the old style with offline view back!

I expected so much more from Scott

I'm a huge fan of the Scott Catalogues, but this "app" doesn't do them justice. As others have pointed out, it's really just a browser that requires an active internet connection. Navigation is much more difficult than their previous app, which really was an app. The user can't zoom in using common finger gestures, but must try to accurately tap the zoom button at the bottom of the window. And the graphics, when zoomed in, are pixelated. This implementation doesn't come close to matching the cost of the catalogues, even when discounted somewhat from the print versions. This should embarrass Scott.

Worse than the old app

This new version is far worse than the old app, which could barely be called an app itself. This new one is I intuitive, hard to navigate, lacks the ability to zoom in and out with the usual finger gestures, and lacks good bookmarking. You can't swipe a page at a time because a swipe will zoom through a dozen pages. They would be doing us a favor if they would just make the catalogues available as ordinary PDF files so we could use the PDF reader of our choice. Don't bother with this garbage app unless or until they make major changes to make it useable.
