Love the magazine and have a subscription. Just simply opening the magazine without being asked to subscribe remains a puzzle for me

As a career US Naval Officer who has had Command at Sea I on a MERAD vessel I have been upclose and personal with the Naval and Maritime Industry for decades. I had never heard of this mag. until I came across it by accident on my iPad. I was surprised at the width and depth of its coverage, and the excellence and quality of both the images/graphics as well as the writing.

I love the magazine, but the app has a lot of errors at least on my iPad 3 with retina display. It just shuts down unexpectedly way too often. Restarting does not help, I have to delete and then reinstall. Also, I wish the formatting would be a bit better optimized for iPad viewing. The fonts are just a tad too small, so you have to zoom a lot. Also, pictures stretch across 2 pages, which does not work on iPads. So this feels like a first beta version, which it probably is. I hope it will be a bit improved soon. Maybe they should take a look at the Adobe magazine platform for iPad, that seems perfectly stable.
