Great magazine, but...

Thoroughly recommend the magazine for all the printed material. However, the lack of ability to play all the music from start to finish (one has to access each track separately) is a real bugbear, particularly for people like me who like to listen in the car. Am seriously considering returning to the print version because of this.

Content very good

Second update: All ok, new version delivered and working. Interface is quite different, more like a tabled edition and not a copy of the magazine, but good all the same. Back to 5 stars.

Update: February 2022. No digital magazine available? Last one delivered in December and I am fully subscribed. Zero help from anyone for the past 2 weeks, will reduce to 3 stars and put back up when I get a full response. A full cd worth or music is also in the digital app so it works out well worth the monthly sub, and saves on the paper No need anymore to buy the printed version.

Hi there, we’re sorry for the delay of the February 2022 issue. We are working on getting this live as soon as possible, this should be over the next few days. Many thanks.

Change not good

The latest update is poor in comparison to the previous version of the application: the interface provides more a series of individual and rather ‘clunky’ website-like pages rather than the excellent electronic but genuine magazine feel previously experienced.

As with the previous version of the app., the so-called ‘Cover CD’ is a misnomer as playback does not provide a CD experience: the tracks do not play one-after-the-other, as per a CD, they each need starting separately; and playback stops when the iPad goes into screen saver mode or if one accesses another page in the magazine.

Correcting this issue is, technically, simple to achieve.

I’ve noticed that the August 2021 and earlier editions in my library do, indeed, display in the previous and much better magazine format but, the so-called ‘Cover CD’ has disappeared from each of these earlier editions. This is a serious problem as all these ‘Cover CDs’ are supposedly included as part of my subscription payment and, therefore, should remain accessible contractually.
