Brilliant app!

Great magazine but...

The app doesn’t offer abstracts/previews of articles just the titles. For those who want to dip in and out rather than subscribe this is a major shortcoming. I use the app to view the contents but often prefer to buy the physical magazine - the format of the physical magazine is very good indeed.

Search function

Can’t seem to find a search function, which I would have assumed would have been a given for the History Today app.
