I've been duped...RIP TIME Magazine

I have subscribed to TIME's print edition continuously since the early 1980s. When I began traveling full-time last year, I was excited to switch to the iPad version. For six months, it was a beautifully executed electronic version of the magazine, well-adapted to tablet viewing. Not only was the layout optimized for iPad, but there was also deep interactive content in the magazine itself, as well as bonus digital content at the end. Then, suddenly and without warning, in December, all of that vanished. The iPad version is now essentially just a PDF of the print magazine pages. Among other things, this means that the font went from two columns of type in an easily readable size, to three columns of type in tiny letters that this mid-50s reader can barely see even with reading glasses. All of the optimizations for tablet viewing are gone. It is, in short, unusable, and completely different from what I subscribed to. I feel like I've been duped. I'm so incredibly disappointed, because of my long-standing respect for TIME and its journalism, but I'll no longer be a subscriber.

Recommended Improvements

The Time Magazine app is no longer "user friendly" and does not allow the reader to view articles in landscape or to enlarge the copy. I suppose this was done to provide the reader with a traditional sense of reading a magazine, page by page. This was and is a mistake. It makes it much more difficult for the reader to read and comprehend what is being communicated, e.g., the copy appearing on an iPad for example is very small. In fact, use of the current app can be and often is frustrating and irritating. Ultimately, as an unintended consequence, the current Time Magazine app actually may discourage people from using the app and thereby encourage less reading of the periodical, particularly in this digital age. Therefore, it is highly recommended that Time Magazine should reverse course and allow landscape viewing and also enlargement of the digital content of its magazine when using its app.

Font too small

I like Time magazine and have been a long time subscriber. I have been reading it on the app for several years and have mostly liked the app until now. I do not like how small they have recently made the print and there is no way to increase the font size. I know that I can use the pinch & zoom feature, but guess what - I don't want to. I want to be able to read the magazine without zooming in and out and moving the page around to see everything. Time needs to either go back to the old format or add an option to increase the font size. Another few options I would like are a search function within an issue and select text to copy or look up (to get a definition or to research).
