I have read the paper version of CRISIS and find that there was no difference in content of articles , pictures , etc. between digital and paper version. I would much rather carry my iPad to read Crisis because the paper version is bulky and cumbersome and the ink has a tendency to rub off on a white shirt sleeve on a hot day. The other important reason I prefer the digital version on my iPad is that I can review archived issues and not carry fifteen magazines with me . Imagine trying to find an article in a past magazine and have to look through every one until you 've succeeded. We'll the digital version you can just simply bookmark your pages or copy and paste a paragraph .
