why is it so slow now? before the update on Jan 19th the app was of moderate but bearable speed, now it takes around 5 seconds to load 1%! thats almost 10 minutes to load an entire issue!
What I did soon after I downloaded the Standard was... Remove SCMP
This is way better than SCMP, which takes hours to download a single issue and only shows free contents even when I'm a subscriber.
Gets the Job Done -- Could Do It In More Style
Newsstand support is needed.
Zooming in is limited...I frequently want to zoom in more...especially to read text in photos.
It would be nice to follow a story from the cover to an inside page with hot links instead of paging manually to page 18.
