Love It, Glitchy Lately

I love this app! Unfortunately it has been crashing a lot lately. Hoping for a fix soon.

Can’t change font size

I like this app for being able to read magazine but it lacks some basic features. In Text Mode, the text is so small that I can barely read it and there is no way to change the size of the font. Not good for older people who like to read magazines.

Terrible user experience

The concept is good, but the implementation is terrible. Downloading magazines is cumbersome as it requires that you first "read" the magazine from your web browser on your device, and then you can open the magazine in Flipster. If you plan on reading several magazines, this work-flow quickly becomes tiresome. The in-app reading experience is also poor because the magazine pages are just low-resolution images; the text is pixelated, especially if you zoom in. Zinio for Libraries, while also not perfect, is a much better choice.
