Great content. App needs refining

1. App needs work. I have this app on my iPhone. To download multiple issues you have to tap ‘Get’ which takes us to the issue. This is not useful when I have to download multiple issues at once - for example when I am changing devices or even when I want to look at a few issues at the same time.

Tapping ‘Get’ should start download in the background like it does when you tap ‘Get’ on the App Store.

2. Scrap book seems to store the whole article (correct me if I am wrong please). Would be useful to have a highlighter function which highlights paras/quotes and stores those under the scrap book.

Excellent publication. Good app. Needs audio!

I’ve been reading FA for years. This app works flawlessly on my iPhone. One request please: the website often includes audio. Could this please be added to the app with the option to download (like the economist).

Flaws with update

App was clunky but worked previously, I have paid for a subscription. But for some reason since update one issue I previously paid for and downloaded is showing the request URL is not found rather than articles. I want to finish reading that issue before reading current one!
