LFI Magazine Trouble

Since the latest upgrade I cannot view or download any of the issues I have purchased in the past.

Developer Response ,

Sorry for that. We’ve fixed it already. Please restore your purchases. If you still have any problems, please contact our support.

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.

Has always worked well for me

I’ve never had any issues with this app and I love the magazine. However can we please get an update so it fits the new iPad Pro screen sizes?
