Doctor Who magazine app review

It’s a fantastic app and a perfect way to keep track of all the Doctor Who Magazine that are available to buy in the shops or online

Digital issues

Great mag - been buying it from almost first issue in the 70’s. Got fed up with piles of paper cluttering the house so I went digital on my A4 iPad. Had several download problems and issues when there’s an upgrade of OS. Some pages load corrupted with wide pixilated bars across the images which is not acceptable.

I’m also waiting for that old trick with app developers which is to not make their products backwards-compatible with older devices that have reached the limit of their software upgrades meaning that if you have to throw more technology into landfill to buy cripplingly expensive replacements or eventually lose your previous purchases. Since the digital mags are not downloadable as pdfs an interaction with the app is necessary to view them. I’m considering giving up on the whole thing sadly but fear that by not subscribing I will lose access to my current digital library. Modern life can be rubbish!

Generally very good app, but…

…every time I want to open the latest issue for the first time, the app crashes repeatedly the moment the app fires up. I then have to delete it, reupload and then download again the issues I want to read. 1st world problems, I know, but very irritating.
