Generally good, but text view needs work...

I have generally been happy with this app. It’s a great way to take advantage of my public library. The one critique I would offer is that the text view needs some work. It would be great to have the ability to adjust the font size, the font itself, and the margins. Right now, the font size is fixed and rather small. This is a problem for anyone with any kind of impaired vision, i.e. anyone over 50 with glasses.

Adding the ability to increase the font size as well as increase the margins would vastly improve use ability for the app. Margins are important as well because the line length is too long at smaller font sizes.

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.

Need bigger font sizes

I like that my library offers this. One of the things I must have is ability to customize my font size. In text view there is no option. The text in text view is way too small for my old eyes.

Also when I use the table of contents to navigate to articles, it needs to remember where I was and not jump all the way back to the top of the table of contents.

I would also like the ability to share articles with others via Facebook, message, or email.
