Informative and detailed

I enjoy the reading WDYTYA and would definitely recommend this to others, I find the historical stories fascinating and intellectually engaging.

Buggy and not useful

Two issues:

1. When you search for an article as soon as the result are displayed it crashes unless you are extremely quick in choosing a result.

Edit: this fault happened for the first day or two. It seems to have been corrected.

2. I already have two or three years back numbers - I already have a subscription. I downloaded this app to give me the ability to search these back issues. The results generated from a search don’t tell where the article is and only offer to sell me the mag containing that article. As a lot of the information in the magazine becomes outdated within a year or two this is rather pointless.

Edit: on some searches the actual pages are displayed and on others only a preview is offered of the mag issue it is in.

The app needs a function that just indexes the articles and tells you where your search result appears. If then you don’t have that copy you can then buy it.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we are sorry to hear that the app is crashing. If you could contact us at appsupport@immediate.co.uk with your device details we can look into it thoroughly. We appreciate your feedback about the search functionality and will review accordingly.

No Pocketmags integration.

The app is fine for reading, its just a shame that it doesn’t integrate with Pocketmags as some of my magazines are bought through that and some are from iTunes. When I look at my library in the app, it looks like I am missing some issues because the Pocketmags ones don’t show up as purchased issues.
