Crappy app

The articles are interesting but the app is an exercise in frustration. I signed up last August for six issues. I have only received five issues but got automatically renewed and billed for another six issues. If you click on the app, you have to log in each time to access your previous issues and/or see if the new issue has arrived. Doesn’t seem to be an option for auto download.

Never automatically uploads new issue

Ever issue it fails to
Allow access to the most recent . I always go through a password reset.
Poor " scientific mind" app writing.
How ironic. Will likely stop subscribing.
This is where I would most certainly imagine that app developers and administrators and marketers for such journals would surely be able to conclude that this is not technology applied .
Why not beta test?
Why not fix this... this is a common problem among my colleagues who also subscribe.
Revealing of editor/publisher- marketing sales disconnect. Glad it's not an operating room or space station mission!
