More stable than before but...

Always defaults to the splash page and not the library.

Developer Response ,

In-app purchases don't work w/iTunes

Good magazine and content but, while app offers additional, one-off editions for sale, it won't let me purchase them. I suspect it's because I subscribed through iTunes instead of the Great Magazines website but in a well written app, that wouldn't matter.

Also, for a zine with this much content, the app should be searchable, like a PDF.

Excellent magazine, poor app

The magazine is excellent, however I still prefer the paper version. What really bugs me is that instead of picking up the magazine and reading I have to open the app, then wait (and wait) while an ad for the publisher appears. Then wait some more until the ad fades. The app then takes me to their store. Finally, I press my magazines in order to read.

I usually just buy the paper copy and save myself the bother.
