I like it


There are several magazines that I found that I like. Of course there are magazines that have been checked out and I suppose there are a limited number of subscriptions. Full magazines that I can tell and a wonderful service of the Charlotte Public Library especially for Seniors and people that only are interested in a few articles in a magazine. Would have been 5 stars but the one magazine I subscribe to wasn't offered but.... like it anyway for what it does have.

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!

Useless bookmark


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.
