Appalling app don’t bother

I moved from print versions to online
I gifted my entire FlyLife library from vol 1 to current to the forum
Thought I could go online like I’ve done with books (also gifting physical to others)
This app is horrible.
It does not allow one to download the mag to your device
It tries to download sections and doesn’t retain the mag but keeps the rest in the cloud even though you’ve paid for it. Unlike kindle or iBooks etc.
If you are remote like Jurassic or nz alps or even Xmas island can’t read the mags.

On the train I waste half the trip to the city to go to the next pages because Telstra’s mobile service is now rubbish in the metro area ( worse than the bush and that’s saying something)

So overall - don’t bother
If FlyLife finally change to allow one to download the ENTIRE magazine THAT ONE HAS PAID FOR ALREADY then ok.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback, the publishers have recently released access to individual back issue articles on their website which are not available for offline viewing, which sounds like what your review relates to.
This is separate from the app which allows you to download the season issues onto your device from your subscription. If you are having trouble downloading your subscription issues still please contact us on the below email address.
If you have any further queries or questions please contact us directly at and we will be happy to help.
