Ratings and Reviews
Needs a great deal of work
No app exists in a universe all its own. Before designing again, look at some of the truly outstanding magazine apps like Vanity Fair and Flipboard. You compete with these. These are easy to use and a pleasure to look at. Take note of form and function. The images on the cover gallery are uselessly small, unreadable. There entire pages of text that cannot be viewed on a phone without pinching and scrolling. These functional issues make it difficult and frustrating to access content. To start the redesign, employ “responsive design” which causes pages to automatically reformat to fit the specific screen - without pinching, sliding or scrolling. No text template remnants like “Cover 1.”
No endlessly scrolling blank pages with a padlock icon. Where free content ends, offer a simple invitation with an actionable hyperlink: “More? Subscribe here.” Sadly out of date in form and function. The entire app should be scrapped and reworked.
It was great until this update. Then it would not recognize or remember my subscription. I called them and had to send in a screen shot (or email) showing my subscription and also tell them my mailing address. Then they emailed me a password and the app works great. Still, it was a pain.
It takes forever to load, but will load. You have to select the issue you want to read and have to manually navigate to the page you were last reading. Every. Single. Time. It should remember where you were last reading just like the other e-readers do. If you charge money for an app, it should at least have some respectable functionality.
