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.

No app for Mac OS

Downloaded this iOS app for my iPhone and iPad but a search on my iMac apps and could not locate one. I really like reading my magazines on a 27 inch screen. Please make it available

New version works perfectly!!

In latest version it finally works perfectly for my iPhone, and it is an incredible resource for reading magazines through my libraries. I am impressed by the ease and speed with which I just downloaded my five favorite magazines through the app.
