I am now able to read Combat Aircraft on the go. A great app, and the magazine is retina display friendly aswell which is so much better than other magazines that havn't got this. The only thing that I wish you could do is when reading on an iPhone it doesn't enable you to rotate so it reads landscape. Other than that a great app.

Disappointing on iPad

This is an excellent publication but is, in my opinion, poor on the iPad. Unlike other publications from Tri Active Media Ltd which work well on the iPad Combat Aircraft falls short. Firstly, it doesn't fit to screen leaving a black border around the outside. Secondly, page quality is low compared to its sister publications. I have Flyer, Airliner World and Airforces Monthly installed, all of which use the same Tri Active Media reader and all of which are crisp, clear and fit to the screen. Also, unlike the other titles there is no animation of page turning which although a novel feature shows that there is a different format being used. It works more like a bog standard PDF reader and pages are unreadable due to fuzzy quality unless you pinch to zoom, unlike the others. Great shame as this is an excellent magazine.

Publication good / App has problems

Great publication which I enjoy reading, looking forward to see how it will evolve. Would love to see pics turn into video clips, or slide shows. Or links attached to references (eg see previous articles for story). Being from a younger generation maybe this type of expectation may be a bit off/naive ? But after all downloaded publications owners don't benefit for bonus features like pull outs or posters etc. App was a bit of a disaster to get working, installed ok but then could not access then would shut down as trying to load, after weeks of deleting and re-installing got it workings. AFM Does seem to be a better and sharper app.
