Great Publication....bad App

Love this publication but the App crashes after 30sec of viewing. Also the photography in the articles is low rez...Not good for a publication about cinematography. Update for IPad Pro???

Content is always great,but...

This app is awful. It’s clunky, slow and thus difficult to navigate, and crashes almost every time I try to open an issue. It’s not optimized for ios12 and wasn’t updated for iPhone X screens. My subscription has to be restored every time I open the app. I haven’t gotten much use of my subscription because this app is so difficult to use . I will not be renewing if this app isn’t updated soon.

Easy to navigate, quick to load- Nice app

I was able to easily navigate the app, and quickly load the mag I wanted to read. I like the download option for offline reading.
