Ratings and Reviews
Doesn’t work with IOS11
I’ve had this app for quite a while and it has always worked well. However with IOS11 having just been released this app just doesn’t work at all. So if you have upgraded to IOS1 I would wait to see if, hopefully when, there is an update to allow it to work before you part with any money.
An updated review
When I first downloaded this app, I was disappointed by the difficulties in logging in with my account. After giving it some time, I gave it another shot and found it to be fully functional.
That out of the way, this is very convenient way of reading S&S on the go, as well as accessing a massive archive of old issues. The fact that you can download them for offline use is impressive stuff!
A whole new app
It doesn’t look like the developers are on here much, so here’s pointing out that the app is now fully working on iOS 11, and indeed has been redesigned with easier scrolling, a web feed tab and more. It could still be better-looking - I’ve taken off a star for the clunky icon - but if you need mobile access to the last two years of S&S writing, this works.
