Great Magazine, Mediocre App

The magazine itself is fantastic, with stunning pictures, relevant and up-to-date information (with references to the original source papers) and useful articles and adverts. However, I have found that the app itself, especially on the ipad, has a lot of issues with crashing and downloading. Would have rated 5 stars if it weren't for these issues, which are no closer to being fixed since the app's inception.

App worked one day.

Think this needs an update for iOS 11. It worked one day and once I purchased content it now won’t open to let me view it.

This app has the potential to be fantastic... You can download and buy an individual magazine or a 1/2 year or 1 year subscription... However the magazine is really difficult to read on the iphone... Even after zooming in... They shouldn't advertise this product saying it's for the iPhone as well as the iPad... when quite clearly it isn't. A massive update for the iPhone is needed. I won't be buying any more issues until it is updated. It's like they haven't even had someone check it's readable... Really disappointed as I was really exited to learn it was being released in the app store....

Ok... Updated... You can read it a little bit better if you turn the iPhone to landscape... 3* rather than 1* as it still isn't crystal clear.
