Ratings and Reviews
Wish it worked in landscape mode and had an iPhone version to take with me to read while waiting. Texts are missing spaces between words and if it’s interactive, it’s slow and clunky. I haven’t been using this app that long so I can’t speak to bookmarks or other features. But I definitely prefer reading on my iPad because it’s less clutter, while my mom is old school and the opposite.
Fair, it with limitations
Works mostly as one would expect, with swiping sideways moving to new items, down to continue with a longer piece. The multimedia is mostly useful. The limitation come with saving, sharing and book marking. Bookmarking works, but as usual, only when the issue is loaded, which wouldn't be a problem if one could save or share a page. Doesn't work with Instapaper, my preferred software, and one can't post pages or quotes. I.e. It's not designed well for Social Media, or really the 21st century. Rather, it's a fancy magazine that fits on one's iPad, and can't move or be shared.
Mediocre app that is unstable UPDATE
Have been receiving emails from developer saying, “The log in issue has been fixed” but it hasn't. The only way I could get in was to delete and reinstall and then change my password.
Raised my review to 2 stars for the effort, but without instructions on how to get it to work, it's another time sink. Still a mediocre app with ineffective support.
Original review: I prefer to read AARP mags on my iPad but the app has been broken for months. Changed password, deleted and reloaded app, but still can’t log into app. Can log in using browser so I’m pretty sure this an app bug. Not worth wasting more time on a buggy app...
Developer Response ,
I understand your frustration. That log in issue has been fixed so if you'd like to try again, we'd be happy to have you back.
