One week checkout...really?
This service is new to my library, so I know there will be more variety available as time goes. However I don’t get the one week checkout thing! Since there’s no waiting for an issue, and apparently no limit to how many people can borrow an issue at the same time, why would there be a time limit. Magazines aren’t necessarily time sensitive, so I tend to put them on my shelf and get back to them later. Then feel I have to rush through or check them out again. Just silly.
Horrible download & time limit
My library recently switched over to this magazine service from our previous one. The selection is now much more limited but I know thats not the apps fault.
What is the apps fault is the horrible download speed & enforced checkout time limit. I’ve had 6 magazine issues attempting to download for 3 days now with no progress. They all just say “waiting”. I cancelled & tried again but am back at the same frustrating spot as before.
IF you’re able to get them downloaded be prepared for a 1 week checkout period before they’re marked as “expired” forcing you to delete. If you still want to read it you have to start the infuriating download attempt all over.
The magazines are incredibly slow to download. I’ve been stuck at 0% downloaded for the last 15 minutes. Please fix this bug. Thank you!
