Please Bring to Your App Design What You Can do For Cameras

This is truly a disappointing and non-intuitive app

1. I bought a subscription, but just can’t get it to work on the iPad. The iPhone works by asking me if I have a subscription when pressing price. The iPad only does so when I reinstall the app, and the tells me on verification that my subscription cannot be verified (but if works on iPhone) (I have contacted subscriptions, but frankly, the experience should be far more seamless)

2. Getting a full view on the magazine is not intuitive (or at least not to me)

Great magazine, terrible app

It's a magazine I like very much, but the potential of the iPad is lost on this app. The layout of the magazine is unchanged and you have to zoom to read any body text or even view the smaller pics properly, thus spoiling the experience. The absolutely worst aspect is the irritating navigation bar, covering the lower quarter of the display, that pops up every time you touch ANY part of the screen, which, on an iPAD is inevitable. I never use this bar, but am constantly having to dismiss it. Totally ruins the reading experience. A straight up PDF of the magazine would be easier to read than this, without the disastrous pop up. Please, developers, if you're reading this, could you give us the option of disabling your horrendous pop up navigation bar.
