Ratings and Reviews
When I click on half of the tabs it just says “Failed to find RSS” which gives me the impression that the app is void of half of the available content. Other than that I love it, I’m glad they came out with an app for sociology.
No longer functioning
Tabs/buttons are no longer visible for navigation. All RSS feeds accessible by tapping around the blank areas blindly are disabled. This app should be removed from the App Store.
Concerning Full text
I wish this app allowed you to store your university affiliation info within it, so you didn't have to backtrack as much to find the articles full text via your university library database system every time. Other than that, very informative and worth the hassle!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
