Want to love it
I almost love this app. It can randomly shut down, but for free magazines from the library I will deal with that. What is the most annoying is the inability to permanently delete something. They seem to love the fact that you can't ever forget that you one time thought about reading that magazine, so it is forever saved as something you will go back to. Imagine never getting to clean out your garbage and being proud of it. That is how this app operates. Don't subscribe to a magazine if you don't want it forever!
The service to borrow magazines through the library is fantastic. But the app has many issues that take away from the reading experience. I don't understand why there is even a bookmark when every time I open the app it opens the magazine at the beginning. I can't search or scroll for the last place. Nor does it show up on other devices. In fact I need to download each magazine to each device. Perhaps kindle has spoiled me but this doesn't measure up.
Too many bugs
When it works, this app is great. I can choose from a large selection of quality magazines and check them out for free, with no expiration date. Unfortunately, 4 times out of 5, I can't even log in. The app either doesn't recognize my user name or password, it crashes before loading my library, or it redirects me to the Zinio website to browse magazines but the website can't be reached. Zinio is badly in need of a major update.
