Too many magazines try to add unnecessary interactivity in their publications these days which bulks up file size. This is one of them. Would much rather have a plain old .pdf file that takes up little space in comparison. The publication itself is great of course.

My Latest Rail News

This is a really great app that seems to work quite well. It’s relatively easy to navigate and is good for just buying a magazine on the odd occasion. As always, the publication’s are great and really informative.

App doesn’t work at all

Subscribed and downloaded the latest issue, read a few pages before heading off to do other things. The content of the magazine looks great, but when I tried to get in a second time and the app just opens to a blank white screen with a small Rail Magazine icon in the middle, but is completely unresponsive. Will give it a day to set itself out, then if no luck will cancel my subscription.
