Always a pleasure

I can’t think of another magazine which covers such a broad spectrum of subjects across GB and Australia, with articles superior to other magazines in terms of journalistic ability, interest and creditable research. I look forward to the delivery into my iPad each week and have not been disappointed. Also listen to tbe Speccie podcasts to hear Fraser, James, Isabel, Katy and their guests for a daily, and sometimes more than daily, Brexit updates. Well done!

Has got better over the years

The text size sometimes used to change after turning a page, but thankfully that seems now to be fixed. The content is an ongoing pleasure, especially the occasional eccentric editing.

Better functionality

This is a great read! However, the text resizing feature is very annoying. It keeps on resetting to the very big or very small text size. It will be much better if the screen size would default to 12 pitch, and if another size is chosen it should not resize itself when pages are turned.
