Issue sorting ,


I just wanted to offer a little feedback on your app. I'm enjoying the new tablet reading DWM experience, but it can be a nuisance trying to flick between the various issues I've purchased. I notice that other similar reading apps make a distinction between the following: 1. Issues purchased and on device; 2. Issues purchased and in the cloud; and 3. Store front (Issue available to buy). Without this feature I think it is going to become harder and harder to keep track of the issues I have purchased.

Not accessible for blind people

Having read a previous review from another blind user stating that the app was not accessible i decided to try it as a few years had passed. Having purchased thee latest issue i have found no change what so ever. I can only conclude that we are being ignored. So to any blind people who are hoping to read the mag don’t waste your time and money as you won’t get anything out of this what so ever.

Freezes and does not load edition

Worked well up until a couple of weeks ago and since that time every time I select the latest edition I just get a please wait loading page but get no further.

My subscription works if I login using the PocketMags website and I have no problems using other magazine subscriptions on my iPad Pro. I have updated to iOS 11.3.1 since but still no change.

I have now cancelled my subscription until the issue is sorted.
