Some issues recently

I love this app - it’s sleek, easy to use, and has many of the journals I typically cite. Unfortunately for the past couple of weeks, I haven’t been to access any articles. When I try to open an article it says there’s an authentication error. I can still access everything normally through the browser version, so I’m thinking something changed in the latest app update? Looking forward to the next update to return to normal, thanks :)

Potential is there but UX development is slow

This app is excellent for keeping up to speed on journals that i read when paired with access granted through my institution. Also the user interface is quite past century. Not a big inconvenience but probably not for millennial reader. Competitors rely on a model that takes after other social media sites (think continuous scroll of articles curated using an algorithm) vs this app which relies on the old age phenomenon of getting a physical copy of the journal and taking your time to browse through its content. The reality is that in this day and age modern readers do not like to be tied down to journal boundaries but rather appreciate a curated list of knowledge.
It also lacks in identifying the special interests of its readers and then coming up with suggestions.

Useful, but slow

This app is a great way to read the journal at my campus library. My only gripe is it’s still really slow to load each article. Speed has improved in the recent release, but I still twiddle my thumbs while waiting.
Why can’t it download a whole journal at once? Or download several selected PDFs while I’m reading the first one?

Developer Response ,

We're happy to hear that you find BrowZine useful! Because of publisher restrictions, we can't enable the bulk downloading of articles. However, there is an option to save individual articles by using the open folder icon next to an article's title. This allows you to save articles to a collection, and causes them to be downloaded in the background, while you do other activities in the app.
